About the book
Does what's in your bathroom or on your desk reveal what's on your mind? What's the best way to find out what your partner is really like? For ten years, ingenious academic Sam Gosling has been studying how people project (and protect) their inner selves. Full of cutting-edge research, Snoop will sharpen your perception of others, as well as of yourself. Amazingly, and perhaps alarmingly, Gosling proves that what we own and how we act can inadvertently reveal more about our personalities than even our most intimate conversations.
Charming and well written ... [a] readable and practical guide to understanding the people around you.
Sam Gosling is an engaging writer, a brilliant psychologist, and a charming individual, and he must never, ever be allowed inside my office!
A must-read for anyone who wants to learn about the cutting edge of psychological research.
Gosling's conclusions are supported by rigorous academic research, but his engaging book is aimed at a popular audience...Snoop's conceit makes for an entertaining tour of how people project their inner selves outward into the world. This may seem like just common sense, but it's not.
Snoopology is a science with a right way and wrong way of doing it...I was blithely going about it entirely the wrong way. A fascinating book.
