"There are few academics who write with as much grace and wisdom as Timothy Wilson. REDIRECT is a masterpiece."-Malcolm Gladwell

What if there were a magic pill that could make you happier, turn you into a better parent, solve a number of your teenager's behavior problems, reduce racial prejudice, and close the achievement gap in education? There is no such pill, but story editing - the scientifically based approach described in REDIRECT - can accomplish all of this.

The world-renowned psychologist Timothy Wilson shows us how to redirect the stories we tell about ourselves and the world around us, with subtle prompts, in ways that lead to lasting change. Fascinating, groundbreaking, and practical, REDIRECT demonstrates the remarkable power small changes can have on the ways we see ourselves and our environment, and how we can use this in our everyday lives.

Baker & Taylor
The world-renowned psychologist proposes techniques to tweak and reframe internal self-narratives to lead healthy, more productive lives and discusses the best way to recover from trauma and explains why self-help books may make you feel less happy after reading them. 50,000 first printing.

This is series of sociological studies, not much in the way of method for "redirecting."
