Item Details

Dean examines of one of the most powerful and under-appreciated processes in the mind: habits. He explains why seemingly easy habits, like eating an apple a day, can be surprisingly difficult to form, and how to take charge of your brain's natural "autopilot" to make any change stick. Any behavior is more than just a product of what you think. It is possible to bend your habits to your will-- and be happier, more creative, and more productive. The psychologist behind PsyBlog explores the science of habit-- and how you can change yours for the better.

I read two books on the topic of habits. "Making Habits, Breaking Habits" and "The Power of Habit". They both cover more or less that same information but the later has many more interesting stories illustrating the information. "Making Habits, Breaking Habits" was not nearly as engaging; its lack of stories and illustrations made the information less apt to stick and my hand less likely to keep turning pages.
