The Expectation Effect Reviews

A fascinating, optimistic and empowering book. David Robson uses science and stories to show the extent to which we are shaped by our beliefs, and how the predictive power of our brains influences pain, diet, sleep, exercise and intelligence -- DR MONTY LYMAN, author of THE REMARKABLE LIFE OF THE SKIN
Authoritative, measured, practical and encouraging, it will change your attitude to life's challenges -- DR CHRISTIAN JARRETT, author of BE WHO YOU WANT
An intriguing account of the role of expectation (and perception in general) in a wide panorama of experience. Beautifully written, science-based, and a gripping read. I loved it! -- DR MITHU STORONI, author of STRESS-PROOF
Packed with science and stories about the remarkable body-mind connection -- KERRY DAYNES, author of THE DARK SIDE OF THE MIND
This is an utterly riveting and transformative book. You can't afford not to read it! -- NIGELLA LAWSON

This book is entertaining, eye-opening, extremely useful and best of all, evidence-based

As David Robson makes plain in this compelling book, the way we think about the world can profoundly shape how we navigate it. Based in science and packed with smart advice, THE EXPECTATION EFFECT will expand your mind - and maybe even extend your life -- DANIEL PINK author of WHEN, DRIVE, AND TO SELL IS HUMAN
THE EXPECTATION EFFECT will do what every great science or self-help book should do: not only make individuals happier and healthier, but also, through its rigorous, science-based insights, improve decisions in government, the media, and business - and make our society better -- JAMES WALLMAN, author of STUFFOCATION AND HOW TO SPEND IT
THE EXPECTATION EFFECT is a must read book that shows how we can all use our brainpower to improve our lives. Whether it's medicine, anxiety, exercise or diet, David Robson seamlessly and engagingly explores how what we expect to happen has a much larger role than we might have previously believed - and we can tap into that power to improve our own wellbeing.
