Barking Up The Wrong Tree

According to Eric Barker, the author of the blog, Barking Up the Wrong Tree, his creation "brings you science-based answers and expert insight on how to be awesome at life." Updated weekly, the blog covers topics such as "Secrets To Success: 6 Tips From The Most Successful People" and "How To Increase Mental Toughness: 4 Secrets Of Navy SEALs And Olympians." While this may sound like just another success-oriented blog, what sets Barker's posts apart is that each one references a study (or multiple studies) to back up his points. For instance, when Barker writes about "How To Attract Good Luck," he does not simply offer his idiosyncratic insights, he quotes Richard Wiseman, a psychology professor who has studied luck throughout his career. For readers who are looking for some easily digestible self-help tips that are usually cross referenced with some pretty decent empirical research, Barking Up the Wrong Tree can be a nice place to start.
