Book Description

Publication Date: January 1, 2013

Say you want to start going to the gym or practicing a musical instrument. How long should it take before you stop having to force it and start doing it automatically?

The surprising answers are found in Making Habits, Breaking Habits, a psychologist’s popular examination of one of the most powerful and under-appreciated processes in the mind. Although people like to think that they are in control, much of human behavior occurs without any decision-making or conscious thought.

Drawing on hundreds of fascinating studies, psychologist Jeremy Dean busts the myths to finally explain why seemingly easy habits, like eating an apple a day, can be surprisingly difficult to form, and how to take charge of your brain’s natural “autopilot” to make any change stick.

Witty and intriguing, Making Habits, Breaking Habits shows how behavior is more than just a product of what you think. It is possible to bend your habits to your will—and be happier, more creative, and more productive.

Review

The Bookseller, “Editor’s Pick,” 10/12/12
“Sensible and very readable…By far the most useful of this month’s New You offerings.”

Kirkus Reviews, 1/1/13
“Making changes does take longer than we may expect—no 30-day, 30-pounds-lighter quick fix—but by following the guidelines laid out by Dean, readers have a decent chance at establishing fulfilling, new patterns.”

Publishers Weekly, 12/10/12
“An accessible and informative guide for readers to take control of their lives.”

PsychCentral.com, 2/24
“Mixing roughly three parts information with one part practical technique for yoking habits to the service of self-improvement, Jeremy Dean’s Making Habits, Breaking Habits tours the last hundred years of psychological research on habit and synthesizes an impressive amount of insight into human habit formation and, for that matter, de-formation…He effects a direct, bloggerly style, mercifully unclouded by the stultified prose plaguing many psychology authors whose backgrounds are different from Dean’s (i.e., career academics). Nevertheless, the book is carefully—even densely—footnoted with a trove of research studies.”

Blogcritics.org, 2/20
“Quite interesting to read and it makes you realize that you’re not alone…After reading this book, it just affirms that if you really want to make a change, you can make it happen.”

Midwest Book Review, March 2013
“Provides a lively discussion for general-interest readers seeking to understand how habits are formed, promoted, or changed. A witty and informative approach makes this a survey all readers can readily digest…Any general collection strong in popular psychology will find this an appealing pick.”

This upload is a continuation of “The ‘Unofficial’ Big Book-Sharing Project”

I will be sharing a number of high-quality business related books in the near future from my personal collection– many that I was surprised that we did not have deposited here in The Vault already. This project is my personal way of giving a bit back to the Vault community which has helped me so much. :-)

Click the link below for a full list of current project results:

These uploads will not be exclusives, but know that a good many of these books are now nearly impossible to find elsewhere for various reasons (such as recent shutdowns of a number of trackers and cyberlockers across the web).

Lesson: Always snatch good stuff while you can, as it may be gone tomorrow! ;-)

I hope you enjoy these books, learn tons from them, and translate that new knowledge into profits!

Please comment if you’ve read the book and have anything positive or negative to say.

Oh, and “thanks” are always appreciated. :-)
