Présentation de l'éditeur
How many times have you thought about starting a diet or quitting smoking without doing anything about it? Or lapsed back into bad habits after hitting a rough spot on the road to recovery?
To uncover the secret to successful personal change, three acclaimed psychologists studied more than 1,000 people who were able to positively and permanently alter their lives without psychotherapy. They discovered that change does not depend on luck or willpower. It is a process that can be successfully managed by anyone who understands how it works. Once you determine which stage of change you’re in, you can:
- create a climate where positive change can occur
- maintain motivation
- turn setbacks into progress
- make your new benefifificial habits a permanent part of your life
This groundbreaking book offers simple self-assessments, informative case histories, and concrete examples to help clarify each stage and process. Whether your goal is to start saving money, to stop drinking, or to end other self-defeating or addictive behaviors, this revolutionary program will help you implement positive personal change . . . for life.
The National Cancer Institute Found this program more than twice as effective as standard programs in helping smokers quit for 18 months.

I would caution that the book is not that "deep" and is more for people who are having a fairly minor problem kicking a "habit" as opposed to somebody who's got more emotional baggage going on. For example, the book uses an example of someone who wants to stop drinking out in bars with his friends every night, but you get the impression the person wasn't an alcoholic with a "drinking problem," or at least not yet. Similarly, the book would be good for someone who wanted to drop that 25 extra pounds but not so good for someone who's 100 pounds overweight and a compulsive overeater.
Although I think this is a basically good book, it suffers from a common flaw of self-help books: it's got a lot of padding to make it book-length. Really, the research and all else that needed to be said could have been covered in far fewer pages. At some point the book becomes very tedious because it's just repeating the same stuff over and over with different examples. That's why I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5: it's useful, but not all that interesting to read past a point. The authors also have a quiz to see where a person is in the "change" process that isn't very helpful in determining where you actually are. I took it and the score had me a couple of stages back while I was actually in the process of eating healthy and losing weight.
The model itself is straightforward and rings true with anyone who has succeeded in changing a significant behavior in his/her life. The language is also direct and avoids psychological complexity and the jargon often born out of affiliation with one or another theoretical bias. Treatment approaches based on their model have proven effective in assisting individuals in making significant change in any number of areas: substance use problems, diabetes, heart disease, weight loss, medication compliance. In other words, a model helpful to anyone making significant changes in life pattern and style. The success of such approaches is not simply a matter of anecdote but of controlled studies. In short, it seems that they have hit on the way that behavioral change actually occurs in people's lives.
For therapist who are interested, it is an excellent companion to Motivational Interviewing (2nd ed.) by W. Miller and R. Rollnick.
