Change Anything presents a stunning new approach to how individuals can not only change their lives for the better in the workplace but also their lives away from the office, including (but not limited to) finding ways to improve one’s working relationship with others, one’s overall health, and outlook on life.

For example: why is it that 95% of all diet attempts fail? Why do New Year’s Resolutions last no more than a few days? Why can't people with good intentions seem to make consistent and positive strides in the way they want to improve their careers, financial fitness, and physical fitness?

Based on the latest research in a number of psychological and medical fields, the authors of Change Anything will show that traditional willpower is not necessarily the answer to these strivings, that people are affected in their behaviors by far more subtle influences. Change Anything shows how individuals can come to understand these powerful and influential forces, and how to put these forces to work in a positive manner that brings real and meaningful results.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sunny | 2/15/2014

    " So useful that I bought a copy on Amazon. Based on science and fact, with game plans to follow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dedrick | 2/13/2014

    " Great book on how to assess and change bad habits. Very well written instructions and nice collection of research as well as examples. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana | 2/1/2014

    " This book was OK. I found it to be a dull tedious read, and had to force myself to finish it. I didn't find any of the material particularly earth-shattering or life-changing. I got tired of reading the case studies. The summaries of the scientific experiments were boring. I did find the information about how addictions change neurological pathways in the brain somewhat interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle | 1/15/2014

    " I would rate this higher if I could. I now own it, as I found myself reading, and then re reading and taking notes. This is really great for ANYTHING you want to change in your life. The authors hit big hard ones (stopping smoking, weight loss, improving careers, turning marriages around...) but you could use this for something as simple as wanting to stop biting your nails. ;) I really really really liked that the first point they explain is how WILLPOWER is not often enough to change. They give a whole slew of ideas... It is well written and based with studies, and easy to follow and enjoy. Loved it and and am currently implementing steps, ideas for personal change of my own. Read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kent | 1/2/2014

    " The approach doesn't seem all that stunning or even new to me, but it does sound effective. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorna | 12/30/2013

    " We all know it's possible to change habits or behavior and yet it's so incredibly hard. I found this book fascinating because it offers scientific explanations for why this is so, as well as solutions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jana | 12/28/2013

    " This was an interesting approach to personal development. It seemed very focused on changing certain habits - overseeing and substance addiction - mores than other aspects of life. I think it would be very beneficial if you had a specific goal before starting the book but I found it lacking in overall happiness content. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric Shaffer | 12/14/2013

    " Interesting, but not as much fun as most self-help books: most are lacking in good advice, but they are still amusing. This one did have a few good insights, and there were a few cool case studies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 12/11/2013

    " I loved the short motivational experiences of others. I can see that if I follow the advice in this book, I can really make some positive changes in my life. It just made sense to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles | 11/22/2013

    " A nice, more practical follow-up to Influencer. Still could be honed better with more creativity and thoughts. Still, I've made me a influencer chart and am memorizing the structure of the six areas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Candice | 11/12/2013

    " Great book and great ideas if you will just implement them! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob Collins | 10/25/2013

    " Another research based Psychology of Success book. I saw correlations to Heidi Grant Halverson's SUCCEED. Together, they provide some serious help for creating better plans for goal attainment. Very good book. Re-working my goals based on the advice from both books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danica | 9/29/2013

    " This book was fantastic. If you want to change anything in your life, this book is the way. And it's as enjoyable as it is informative and inspiring. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathleen | 8/14/2013

    " I don't get excited about self help books. Not that it is totally uninteresting but I am so old that I've almost heard it all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alan Wayman | 5/22/2013

    " The book is very similar to Influencer only more applicable and better written. I thought this to be a good introduction to personal change strategies and a good framework for thinking about improving behavior "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dean | 2/22/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gayle | 12/27/2011

    " Some really great research and ideas about how we go about making life changes. Need to re-read and implement more of their ideas. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jody Patanjo | 7/20/2011

    " As a self-help book, it really didn't introduce anything new and groundbreaking. That said, it did present the material in a way that was fun to read. Not a waste of money, but not anything I'd go out of my way to read again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natalie | 7/20/2011

    " Some good ideas but boring to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa | 5/27/2011

    " This was an interesting book. There was a lot of information, so some of it was a little tough to get through, but it was interesting. I think I'll have to re-read this in order to really get a handle on how to "Change Anything". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 4/17/2011

    " This was a good book--dealing more with a systems approach to change. It goes with some other things I've been reading to help students battle procrastination and poor study habits. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Whitney | 1/8/2011

    " The official book is coming out in April. I would recommend it to anyone who likes these types of books. The authors of this book also wrote The Influencer, Crucial Conversations, Crucial Confrontations. Great self-improvement ideas and philosophies. "
