Hardback small quarto, dustjacket, very good condition (in very good dustjacket), minor edgewear. Heavy (1.2 Kg), and extra postage may be requested to destinations outside Australia. 431 pp. Collected essays by leading psychologists discussing the many ways in which expectancies, that is you expect that you will automatically or involuntarily respond to a situation in a particular way, leads you to do so. If you expect to be anxious or depressed, you will be. If you expect that a therapy or pill will make you feel better, it will (or it will make you feel worse of you expect that-the nocebo effect, rather than the placebo effect). Has provocative implications particularly for psychology, psychiatry and psychosomatic medicine.
