Review:

The Habit Change Workbook is a wonderful book that will make life easier for many people. It provides effective, well-studied techniques to help readers change troublesome or hurtful habits—ranging from compulsive shopping to procrastination, from computer addiction to nail biting. The principles are explained in easy-to-understand ways with clear real-life examples that help guide the reader to adapt the techniques to his or her own life.”
—Michael Jenike, M.D., Director, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders Clinic and Research Unit, Massachusetts General Hospital and Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School



“This excellent workbook covers a wide variety of bad habits with step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow and help clarify the nature and reasons for problem habits. Th examples are great and the chapters on motivation and tracking the habits are especially helpful. Intervention strategies are state of the art, and the authors are careful to translate them into practical and usable ways to change thoughts and actions. A very useful resource!”
