#Book Giveaway: Redirect by Timothy D. Wilson {3 Winners} CLOSED

Saturday, September 10, 2011 Posted by Dina N

Book Description
We all tell ourselves stories to make sense of the world. These stories ultimately determine if we will lead healthy, productive lives or get into trouble. In REDIRECT, world-renowned psychologist Timothy Wilson proposes a radical new view-that although these narratives can be extremely hard to change, they can change surprisingly quickly if tweaked in the right way. Wilson blows the whistle on failed attempts to solve a broad range of problems and reframes them with new stories.
  • How can we best recover from trauma?
  • Why might some sex education result in more teen pregnancies?
  • Why might that self-help book have left you distinctly unhappier?
Each chapter includes "Using It" sections, offering a range of practical advice, from writing exercises to parenting techniques to happiness practices that work. Wilson's theories in REDIRECT have been tested scientifically and found to have real results, towards both personal meaning and happiness and social progress.

    Definitely The Betrayed by David Hosp. I picked this book at random, knowing nothing about it or the author. It was an excellent and engaging read.

    Technically, the last good book I read was Where the Wild Things Are (great book!) but the last great book NOT for children that I read was "For Kicks" by...ah, shoot...by this guy who writes a lot of horse racing stories. My dad suggested him and he was right. Loved the two stories I've read by him (the other was Bone Crack)
