A problem shared is a problem halved? Not necessarily... Talking about our problems isn't always a good idea. World-renowned psychologist Timothy Wilson reveals how this, and many other conventional therapies and interventions, can often do us more harm than good. Presenting the very latest research, Wilson argues that the key to transforming our lives lies simply in learning to redirect the stories we tell ourselves. His revolutionary approach reveals how reshaping our internal narratives can increase our personal well-being and transform our understanding of human behaviour - our narratives can change surprisingly quickly if tweaked in the right way.How can we best recover from trauma? Why might some sex education result in more teen pregnancies? Why will most self-help books leave you worse off? Redirect proposes a radical new view of the world. It also offers a range of practical advice - that has, crucially, been tested scientifically and found to have real results - that can show us the way to social progress.

There are few academics who write with as much grace and wisdom as Timothy Wilson. Redirect is a masterpiece -- Malcolm Gladwell This glorious book shimmers with insights - an instant classic that will be discussed and quoted for generations. One of the great psychologists of our time, Timothy Wilson has distilled the field's wisdom and shown us how to use it to change ourselves and the world -- Daniel Gilbert, author of 'Stumbling on Happiness' A great book! In his uniquely engaging way, Wilson shows how simple techniques can deliver large and lasting personal changes - and convinces us that only good research can give us these techniques -- Carol Dweck, author of 'Mindset' With a deft narrative touch ... and a ferocious commitment to scientific evidence, Timothy Wilson has made a remarkable contribution to knowledge -- Robert Cialdini, author of 'Influence' Redirect provides an intelligent person's introduction to psychology...That alone makes it worth reading. The fact that it is accessible, engaging and consistently WTF-worthy makes it an instant classic of popular science - and its lessons could scarcely be more timely -- Richard Godwin * Evening Standard *
