Snoop tops 2008 New Scientist Picks!

Sam Gosling's book, Snoop: What Your Stuff Says About You was chosen one of the Top Science Books of 2008 by New Scientist Magazine.

My critics cannot claim I keep promoting the book just because I am in the last chapter and Sam is a friend and member of our Advisory Board. (Of course that IS partly why I promote it, but at least now my shameless self promotion is more justified!)

Here are a couple of quotes explaining why Sam's title was in the magazine's top six for 2008.

"In this charming and well-written book, academic psychologist Sam Gosling brings a mass of research to bear on a simple question: just how much can you really tell about a person from their possessions, living spaces and non-verbal behaviour?

"With this book, Gosling joins a small but growing band of scholars who are keen to present to the public the important and practical insights that can be gained from experimental social psychology."

Way to go, Sam!
