This competition is now closed and the winners have been contacted. Many thanks to everyone who entered. We have five copies to give away of The Face of Emotion How Botox Affects Our Moods and Relationships by Eric Finzi, kindly donated to the Digest by Palgrave Macmillan. New Scientist called the book "a provocative and insightful contribution" to the debate about emotional regulation.
From the publishers: "William Shakespeare famously wrote that 'a face is like a book,' and common wisdom has it that our faces reveal our deep-seated emotions. But what if the reverse were also true? What if our facial expressions set our moods instead of revealing them? What if there were actual science to support the exhortation, "smile, be happy?" Dermatologic surgeon Eric Finzi has been studying that question for nearly two decades, and in this ground breaking book he marshals evidence suggesting that our facial expressions are not secondary to, but rather a central driving force of, our emotions."For your chance to win a copy, simply tell us what you'd say to a friend or colleague to convince them that they should read the BPS Research Digest. The writers of our five favourite answers will each receive a copy of the book. The competition closes Friday evening. Please leave an email address (or weblink) for us to contact you. Good luck!
