Publisher's Summary

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, outlook on life, and so on.
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, physical fitness, and so on?
Based upon the latest research in a number of psychological and medical fields, the authors of Change Anything will show that traditional will-power 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.
The authors present an array of everyday examples that will change and truly empower you to reexamine the way you go about your business and life.

Change - Paint-by-the-Numbers

Actually, the book tells me things that I have been aware of for - well - ever, but the topic is bundled in such a way that I am seeing change in a different light. Here the listener will get a framework from which change can be made. This is a practical, psychologically sound, pattern changing approach to improving life, work, and what ever you want to approach behaviorally. The book presents six sources of influence on our lives, and then individual chapters detail how those influencers can be manipulated to our advantage. This is a very helpful book. Consider reading it soon - unless you procrastinate and this book will help you once you open volume! The writing is engaging and the reading of Joseph Grenny (the second author) is very good.

Really, don't bother!!!

I read some of the other reviews and am wondering if they weren't paid reviews. The author continually wants you to go to a website for a "complimentary" pro subscription because you bought this book. Narrator could have done a better job, but if you have read anything by Napoleon Hill or Dale Carnegie, you have read this book. The author makes some sense sometime, but save your money, read one of the other authors I mentioned.
