This book was great. At one point, my perspective shifted. Something about the way he described 'habit loops' gave me insight on the ways in which I seek rewards from my habits that often have nothing to do with the habit itself. For instance, he describes his own cell phone-checking habit as providing relief from anxiety and boredom, and once he understood that, he was able to intervene on that emotional level. It all sounds obvious when I write it here, but something about the way Scott addresses it is very effective.
I love using practical implementation self development tools to complement loftier motivational pieces on manifestation. Life creation occurs at the ground level, which a lot of law of attraction books skim over.
And like I said in another review, Scott's reviewers are real people. He might have some loyal friends on here supporting him, but he also attracts independent reviewers.
Cons: Limited "case study"
S.J. Scott's _Bad Habits No More: 25 steps to break any bad habit_ sets a very ambitious goal for itself, and one that only you can be the judge of whether or not it meets. At 90 pages, and broken down into discrete steps, it's a quick read either in one sitting or, more likely, broken up into smaller chunks with time to think about how you would apply it in your own life. While Step 1 is a caveat to differentiate between problems that would require or benefit from professional help and those that can be tackled with the help of the book and your support network, many of his steps draw from cognitive behavioral therapy and relapse prevention strategies developed in the context of addiction recovery. If I were to change one thing about the book it would be to add one or two more examples of using the techniques to break a habit. And if I were to take away only two pieces of advice from this book, it would be to focus not just on not engaging in your target bad habit, but in choosing to engage in your alternative replacement habit(s), and the development of your if-then plan for dealing with triggers to engage in your old bad habit.
Overall a solid, fast read, with good ideas. I would have no problems recommending this to someone looking to develop a habit change plan.
This book was very thorough, outlining many ideas that can help kick our nasty habits to the door. There were so many helpful tricks, resources, and ways to get our head in the right place to make the changes.
Some of the things I was already doing. Some... not so much. Some... not at all. Glad I have a handful of new ideas.
Lots of data; would have appreciated a little more inspiration (maybe more bad-habit-kicking examples). 4.8 stars for me.
The book was well-edited and easy to read.
