Editorial Reviews


''Sean Young has taken psychology research and applied it outside the research lab, helping people make lasting changes to their behaviors. In this book, he shares a process and tools so that we can make these changes ourselves.'' (Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take)

''Behavioral scientists have been...much less successful at showing us how to make change last. With Stick with It, Sean Young has come to the rescue, offering a system for generating lasting change that is both scientifically grounded and personally implementable. It's a winner.'' --Robert Cialdini, New York Times bestselling author of Influence and Pre-Suasion

''It's a must-read for anyone who's been unable to keep a new year's resolution, improve their work productivity, or failed at making a lasting change in any other area of their life or work.'' --Jonah Berger, New York Times bestselling author of Contagious

''Stick with It helps you go from wanting to change to actually doing it. Sean Young breaks down the science behind behavior change and offers practical and effective strategies for changing your life.'' --Amy Morin, author of 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do

From the Back Cover

Whether it’s absentminded mistakes at work, a weakness for junk food, a smartphone addiction, or a lack of exercise, everyone has a bad habit or behavior that they’d like to change. But wanting to change and actually doing it—sticking with it to make that change permanent—are two very different things. 

Dr. Sean Young, an authoritative new voice in the field of behavioral science and the director of the UCLA Center for Digital Behavior and the UC Institute for Prediction Technology, knows a great deal about our behavior and how we can change it—for the better. Stick with It is his fascinating look at the science of lasting behavior, filled with crucial knowledge and practical advice to help everyone successfully alter their actions and improve their lives. As Dr. Young explains, much of what we’ve been taught about behavior change is wrong; contrary to popular belief, you don’t change behavior by changing the person or their personality—you do it by changing the process. Drawing on his own scientific research with patients and research participants, along with research from other leading experts in the field, he identifies the seven crucial forces that combine to make lasting personal transformation, including

• Stepladders: how the power of incremental steps creates long-term change.

• Community: how social support and competition fuel change and keep us accountable. 

• Neurohacks: how a set of mental shortcuts can reset the brain so that people can finally change old unwanted behaviors. 

• Engraining Good Habits: how success in life and work depends on developing the right behavioral routines. 

Packed with pragmatic approaches and stories of real people who have used them successfully, Stick with It shows that it is possible to control spending, stick to a healthy diet, become more social, exercise regularly, stop compulsively checking email, and overcome problem behaviors—forever.
