Description

Everyone - even the most jaded and sceptical - believes in `magic', in the form of luck, mind over matter, the power of similarities, jinxes, and destiny. In this wonderful exploration of psychology, Matthew Hutson takes us on a fascinating tour of magical thinking in everyday life, revealing the healing power of John Lennon's piano; the reason gamblers kiss their tickets; and why admitting you have no free will staves off addiction.
