A lot of us would like a Rubin in our lives (The Times Magazine)
Gretchen Rubin's thesis is fascinating, persuasive (Guardian)
This takes on every unhelpful habit you've ever had at home or at work and shows you how you can fix it. A life-changer. I more or less lost three stone as a result of reading this book. And it changed completely how I process email which has saved me thousands of hours. A revelation. (Viv Groskop The Pool)
Rubin's book is about liberating yourself from destructive habits...she is realistic, saying that no one-size-fits-all solution exists (Evening Standard)
This book struck a nerve. It basically is the book "How to Get Up and Get Dressed," but it works... Once I came to understand habits as harnessing our own laziness - making a habit frees you from decision-making, which you can use to your advantage - my relationship to them changed permanently (New Yorker)
Just read this book... It's about the psychology of habit and is an addictive and pleasing read (even for someone who is in the habit of reading a lot of such books about, er, changing habits). I strongly recommend it if you are looking to make some permanent changes in your life... It's excellent (Viv Groskop)
If you need a helping hand to make over your bad habits, American self-help author Gretchen Rubin is your woman. Better Than Before is full of practical advice and strategies on how to build healthier and happier ways of living that last (Good Housekeeping)
brilliantly addictive, fascinating and transformational (Cathy Rentzenbrink, The Bookseller)
Do you have a bad habit you're trying to shake, or a good one you wish you could cultivate? Gretchen Rubin is one of the most charming and erudite authors of her generation. Here, she uses her gifts to help you eat right, sleep well, stop procrastinating and start enjoying all that life has to offer. (Susan Cain, bestselling author of QUIET: THE POWER OF INTROVERTS IN A WORLD THAT CAN'T STOP TALKING)
Filled with insights about our patterns of behavior, Better Than Before addresses one of life's big and timeless questions: how can we transform ourselves? In a way that's thought-provoking, surprising and often funny, Gretchen Rubin provides us with the tools to build a life that truly reflects our goals and values. (Arianna Huffington, founder of the Huffington Post and bestselling author of THRIVE)
THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

There were a few suggestions in this book I found useful, but I feel as a 'rebel' personality type it was less helpful than it would be for other types. The author is also slightly too evangelical about promoting her personal dietary & exercise of choice for my liking.

There are some gems in here. But the American style grates a bit. And I like more science...
I wonder if Gretchen might not be a well meaning but self orbiting person. Still the book is full of iritating good advice.Read more
I picked up this book after reading an interview with the author when she was promoting her new book.Read more
Excellent read for all those needing a structure to instigate some habit schemes. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Buy it!
I just love this book. It played on my mind well after I'd finished reading a portion and I was eager to get the opportunity to get reading again.Read more
