Heads up: this event is on a Friday.
Fifty years ago this week, Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the moon. We all recognise this to be one of mankind's greatest achievements. Yet what did it take to make John F. Kennedy's dream a reality? In his latest book, Professor Richard Wiseman presents a pioneering study of the mindset that took humanity to the moon, and shows how you can harness and use it to achieve the extraordinary in your everyday life.
Join professor of psychology, bestselling author and magician Richard Wiseman, discussing how, as part of his voyages through inner space, he found the eight key principles that make up the Apollo Mindset, including how pessimism is crucial to success, and how fear and tragedy can be transformed into hope and optimism. There will also be an opportunity for Q&A and Richard will be signing copies of his new book, which will be available to purchase at the event.
