Review: 'Changing For Good' by James Prochaska et al

Developing new habits (or breaking old habits) can be extremely difficult. Changing For Good puts science on your side by teaching you how to intentionally change your behaviors in a lasting way.

In Changing For Good, you'll learn that there are actually six well-defined phases of making a lasting behavioral change: precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, maintenance, and termination. Instead of overemphasizing premature action, physically and mentally preparing for the change will help ensure that your actions are successful. Even temporary setbacks aren't failure - the phases are cyclical, so you can always take the information you gained from your first attempt and use it to improve your next attempt. With patience and persistence, you will succeed.

Backed by decades of research and studies, Changing For Good can help you overcome habits that aren't serving you and intentionally install new habits that will improve your life.
