About the book
COUNTERCLOCKWISE is a revolutionary new way to think about health to help you alter your physical well-being.
A new BBC 1 series recreates the "counterclockwise" study, in which elderly men lived for a week as though it was 1959 and showed dramatic improvements in their hearing, memory, dexterity, appetite, and general well-being. Ellen Langer will feature in each of the 4 prime time programmes.
Dr Langer is an internationally bestselling author. Her classic, Mindfulness, has sold over 120,000 copies to date and continues to sell 4,500 copies a year, twenty years post-publication.
Endorsed by a range of top-selling self-help authors from Deepak Chopra and Andrew Weil to Christiane Northrup and Jill Bolte Taylor.
Film rights optioned for Jennifer Aniston to star as Ellen Langer.
If we could turn back the clock psychologically, could we also turn it back physically?

For more than thirty years, award-winning psychologist Ellen Langer has studied this provocative question, and now, in Counterclockwise, she presents a conclusive answer: opening our minds to what's possible, instead of clinging to notions about what's not, can lead to better health - at any age.

Drawing on landmark work in the field and her own body of colourful and highly original experiments, Langer shows that the magic of rejuvenation and ongoing good health lies in being aware of the ways we mindlessly react to social and cultural cues.

With only subtle shifts in our thinking, our language, and in our expectations, she tells us that we can begin to change the ingrained behaviour that sap health, optimism, and vitality from our lives.

Immensely readable and truly fascinating, Counterclockwise offers a transformative and bold new paradigm: the psychology of possibility. A hopeful and groundbreaking book by an author who has changed how people all over the world think and feel. Counterclockwise is sure to become a standard source on new-century science and healing.
