WIN a copy of Sensation by Thalma Lobel

This competition is now closed.


Icon Books have kindly offered me three copies of fascinating new book Sensation by Thalma Lobel to give away to you, my lovely readers. Here’s the publisher’s blurb:

With Sensation, the world’s leading expert on the new science of physical intelligence, Thalma Lobel, brings us the first ever popular psychology book on “embodied cognition”: how the body profoundly affects our thoughts, emotions and decisions about everything from the people we like to the ways we work.

By sharing fascinating new findings – like how clean smells promote moral behaviour and sports teams in black jerseys are given more penalties than teams in other colours – Thalma Lobel reveals how shockingly impressionable we are to sensory input from the world around us.

Sensation is the first book to show how vulnerable we are to the unconscious influence of our senses over our minds.


To WIN a copy of this book, just leave a comment before the end of Wednesday 1 October, and then I will pick out three random winners.

If you want to find out what I thought of Sensation, keep an eye on the blog for my review, coming shortly.

    I was dreaming about Derren Brown last night so feel very prescient about finding your giveaway. It was after watching his shows (and studying politics and survey design) that I started to see how very impressionable we all are. Sounds like a fascinating book.

    My daughter has just started A Level psychology, would love this for hr.

    This sounds very fascinating. I have a big interest in this. The mind works in wonderful ways and it’s all down to cognitive thinking and processing thoughts. I’d pass this book on through all of the family to read, sounds great ☺

    How fascinating this book sounds, there is so much still not understood about how our minds work.

    I always found that rugby teams in any other jersey than my own got more penalties – or that’s what I used to politely tell the ref! And now it’s scientifically proven…..!
