// BOOKSACTUALLY RECOMMENDS //Snoop by Sam Gosling “A core goal of this book has been to provide the tools that will turn you from an ordinary observer into a savvy snooper. If I’ve succeeded, you will have learned something that has been overlooked by a century’s worthy of psychological research: that snooping gives all of us unique insights into ourselves and sharpens our perceptions of others. There’s another benefit too: Your enriched knowledge of how people related to their spaces, deliberately and inadvertently, will help you investigate domains of expression that have yet to e studied scientifically - from the contents of wallets, purses, suitcases, or Facebook wall posts, to preferences for pets, tattoos, cocktails, and vacation spots. So the next time you start to poke around a friend’s medicine cabinet or surreptitiously review the stuff stuck on his refrigerator door, I hope you will revel in the realization that you are poised at the edge of a new frontier in the understanding of human behaviour. And after just a little bit of reveling, I trust you’ll get down to some serious snooping.”
