    What a nice change!

    Unlike most self-help books out there, this one is actually based on research for a change. Based on this Phd's work on how people change, this guy has uncovered the different, predictable stages of change that people go through when they attempt to get themselves to change. Although the stages are fairly predictable, not everybody goes through them in the exact same order as some people skip various stages on their way to changing their behaviour. A great book all-in-all, it's definitely worth a look. Also liked The Sixty-Second Motivator.

    A book worth reading -- more than once!

    This book is worth reading -- more than once -- for anyone who has an addiction, especially a serious addiction such as smoking, drinking, overeating or for someone who knows someone who does. I found it exceedingly helpful and have been both recommending it to others and even buying it for others since I read it, or rather reread it, as I had read it years ago when it was first published and read it again in 2009. It is, indeed, one of the best books I have read on the subject of addiction and making important changes in one's life.

    Highly recommended for a person serious about making a change

    This books lays out a remarkably simple, but workable, program for creating change in one's life. There are no promises, but the program, the result of serious analysis of studies with people trying to make a change in their daily lives, suggests a step-by-step approach that really can work, once the individual is actually committed to making the change. Notice: a change, no more than one at a time.

    good info, dry presentation

    changing for good has some great ideas going for it, but it is way too clinical. the writers come across as brilliant analysts, but lousey self-help people. i felt such a distance from the whole subject matter. it didn't help me change at all because i couldn't click with it. other writers in the genre, like dwyer and even robbins, make you feel like you're going on a journey. this was way too theoretical and not practical enough.
