Review

"The Happiness Project lays out life’s essential goals. . . . Better Than Before serves as a kind of detailed instruction manual on how to achieve them. . . . As it happens, when I was reading this book I really needed it. . . . By the end of the week I was feeling calm and productive, in perfect harmony with the cosmic schedule."
The New York Times Book Review

"Gretchen explores strategic scientifically researched formulations for changing one's life. . . . The book's specificity is impressive. Gretchen's detailed, structured methodology for diagnosing your personality type and consequent optimal modus operandi for changing habits, is enticing and I myself plan to experiment."
Huffington Post

The New York Times

“Gretchen Rubin is a writer after my own heart—seriously brilliant, very warm, and funny. I think she’s amazing.” —Anne Lamott, New York Times bestselling author of Bird by Bird and Operating Instructions“Do you have a bad habit you’re trying to shake, or a good one you wish you could cultivate?

—Dan Heath, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Made to StickSwitch, and Decisive

“Almost everyone wants to be ‘better’—slimmer, smarter, better looking, more interesting, more productive—and we want to know we’re improving, we want the reinforcing evidence. Gretchen Rubin’s new masterpiece, Better Than Before, shows us how. She shows how to turn vicious cycles into virtuous cycles and how to turn ruts into roads less traveled. The key is in starting and supporting the habits that will turn us into who we want to be. Unlike other books on habits, Rubin’s book gives us the specific tools and a blueprint for getting back on track—the fast track.”
