Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Why do so many people have trouble breaking dangerous habits like smoking, overeating, and drug and alcohol abuse? According to psychologists Prochaska, Norcross and DiClemente, people must go through six stages to change a behavior: precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, maintenance and termination. Step by step, they show readers how to determine what phase they're in and find an appropriate strategy for moving to the next step by using various tactics, for example, consciousness raising and rewards. The focus here is on the process of change rather than techniques. Chapter 10, "A Changer's Manual," centers on specific habits, providing disturbing statistics for each as well as tips for becoming free of them. A combination of illustrative tables and case histories brings a concrete reality to the six-step program.

I'm only halfway thru and it's helped already-written for 'the regular guy'-you don't need any other book-this is it!

Prochaska is the guru when it comes to understanding what people go through when they need to change their habits. Changing for good gives you an academic analysis of what a person goes through to change. I think this is an important book but also highly recommend Influencer which is more up to date and better written.

I needed this book for a Holistic Health Coaching class. This book was very helpful and not as dry as other self-help/psychology books can be. There are some definite tools in this book that are necessary for anyone thinking of making a life-change, helping someone through one or considering counseling as a career.

I read this some years ago and while I found it helpful conceptually, it was so theoretical feeling and complex that it was not easy to apply in real life. However, what has lasted in my thinking about the issues of change is the idea that it takes time and repetitive effort. So when you see someone who has had a miraculous breakthrough, this book taught me that there was a lot more effort and failure preceding it than meets the eye.
