4.0 out of 5 stars worth the read., 3 April 2012
This review is from: Redirect: The Surprising New Science of Psychological Change (Paperback)
I found `Redirect' to be really intriguing. Reviews I've read have stated that this book really isn't about personal change and more about social change. I would agree to a point in that the latter half of the book does delve more into social psychology, yet the few things that the author does recommend for personal change I think are powerful tools, such as the information on a specific type of journaling, and I probably wouldn't have run across them without them being mentioned. Also, the social psychology section I think is powerful in that it does show that people's intuitions on how certain acts or programs that will affect others need to be widely tested before any of it is accepted as valid and implemented widely. In many cases the programs that were put together for positive reasons and intentions turned out to have a negative overall impact. Overall a very thought provoking book and one that I would recommend to anyone interested in personal and social change.
