Book Review: Cheap Psychological Tricks – How to Get What You Want and Be Happy
Title: Cheap Psychological Tricks
Author: Perry W. Buffington
Publisher: MJF Books
Genre: Self-Help, Psychology
This little book packs a lot more punch, then you may expect when you look at it for the first time. It is skinny, has a relatively plain – but cute – cover, and not much fuss, but then it is time to take a peek inside and discover it’s true depth.
Cheap Psychological Tricks covers a wide variety of subjects, from relationships to potty training, to success, and dieting. With a book that has such a wide subject range, you would think it would be shallow, but quite the contrary. While all points are made quickly – and like I mentioned without any fuzz – they are powerful in their small package and give the reader much to ponder over.
This is not necessarily a book you need to read from cover to cover – some topics, such as the parenting of small children, don’t apply to everyone – so don’t waste your time on those unless you are truly curious. Well, you never know you may be able to share your newfound wisdom with someone who is in need of a little pick me up or advice?
I truly enjoyed reading this book and will check back with it often, as I am working myself through the notes I have made – after all, what worth is a self-help book if you don’t apply what you have learned?
If you are looking for a quick read, and a few common sense tips on a wide variety of subjects, Cheap Psychological Tricks will be a perfect fit!
