Publisher's Summary

The bestselling author of Undoing Depression offers a brain-based guide to help us finally get rid of the bad habits that plague us.
We humans tend to get in our own way time and time again - whether it comes to not speaking up for ourselves, going back to bad romantic partners, our umpteenth diet, or engaging in any of a range of bad habits we just can’t seem to shake. In Rewire, renowned psychotherapist Richard O’Connor, PhD, reveals why our bad habits die so hard. We have two brains - one a thoughtful, conscious, deliberative self, and the other an automatic self that does most of the work without our attention. Using new research and knowledge about how the brain works, the audiobook clears a path to lasting, effective change for behaviors that include:


procrastination
overeating
chronic disorganization
staying in bad situations
excessive worrying
risk-taking
passive aggression
self-medication
and more
Bringing together many different fields in psychology and brain science, Rewire offers a refreshing, science-based new paradigm for readers of Charles Duhigg and Frank Lawlis.

Meh

It's okay, particularly if you aren't familiar with his primary suggestions ... mindfulness meditation along with a 12 step program. If you are familiar with those and general behavioral modification principles, it's just several hours of listening hoping to hear something new. The narrator did a good job.

Would you consider the audio edition of Rewire to be better than the print version?

No - - I think I need to get some of the information in print. I got lost with some of the steps and would like to read parts of the book over. As an example, I need a reminder about the meditation teqniques.
