The Expectation Effect Reviews

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

-- CLAUDIA HAMMOND
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 H. PINK
Mind-changing science . . . One of Robson's many strengths as a chronicler of science is to take what might seem familiar and show - to his own evident excitement, as well - just how much deeper the rabbit hole goes . . . Compelling -- OLIVER BURKEMAN * * Guardian * *
This is an utterly riveting and transformative book. You can't afford not to read it! -- NIGELLA LAWSON
A revelatory pop-science book on the idea that it's not so much what happens to us as what we expect to happen that determines our health and wellbeing * * Guardian * *
Intriguing . . . Extraordinary stories of the brain and its power to control the body * * Sunday Times * *
I have not been able to stop thinking about it . . . Jaw-dropping . . . So many studies in the book left me speechless -- PANDORA SYKES * * Doing It Right * *
Already threatening to be book of the year - visionary, original and exciting -- WILL STORR
Interesting . . . Robson marshals a huge range of diverse evidence here and describes it very well. I learned a lot and enjoyed the book hugely -- TIM HARFORD
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
