Overview

Redirect: The Surprising New Science of Psychological Change by Timothy D. Wilson, Grover Gardner

Why might some sex education programs result in more teen pregnancies? Why did reading that self-help book make you feel less happy? What’s the best way to recover from trauma? Can we actually improve our lives by redirecting our thinking?  We tell ourselves stories to make sense of the world. These stories ultimately determine if we will lead healthy, productive lives or get into trouble. Renowned psychologist Timothy Wilson proposes a radical new view: although these stories can be very hard to change, they can change—surprisingly quickly—if tweaked in the right way. He considers a broad range of problems, exposes failed attempts to solve them, and reframes them with new stories. Scientifically tested, his practical advice and simple techniques have been found to bring about real results including enhanced happiness, personal meaning, and social progress.

While Redirect has a number of useful insights in the first few chapters, which I must admit seem very promising, Wilson falls into a pattern such that one hardly needs even to read the last few chapters. A useful tool in one's arsenal? But of course. However, it could have red a touch better in the tail end. I would recommend reading this book in conjunction with Kahneman's "Thinking, Fast and Slow"; Pink's "Drive"; and Duhigg's "The Power of Habit"
