We all have things about ourselves we'd like to improve, but changing behavior is often very tricky business. The spirit may be willing, but the flesh is often weak, and our efforts to change sometimes end in frustration. Feeling bad about yourself doesn't help, either. Self-Directed Behavior can help you stop wasting valuable energy on behaviors that don't serve you, and redirect that energy to behaviors that support the kind of life you want to live.

This is an excellent book and it has helped me in so many ways.

Very good book.

I can't write a detailed review right now because my Mac is about to run out of power, but if you have a passion for scientific self-help (not self-help per se, which is mostly stuff like Tony Robbins and completely unlike what this book exemplifies), email me at [email protected] so I can give a more detailed review and have a conversation about what I'm passionate about.

I originally discovered this book as an assigned text for one of my courses in college. Most textbooks are dry and boring. This is one textbook I have kept and referred to often.
I teach a workshop series titled "Sabotage to Success" and this book has been a rich source of information for me and my workshop participants. This book is "scientific", perfect for the skeptics of self-change, but you don't have to be a scientist to read it. The suggested projects are outlined clearly and methodically. The authors have taken pains to revise and renew the book, improving it with each edition. They listen to student input and even have a response form in the back of the book.
I'm glad to see this book available on Amazon. I often recommend it to my workshop participants but haven't been able to refer them to a practical place to buy it. I paid at least $50 for this text in the University Bookstore. I wish there had been an Amazon.com when I bought it originally.

I first had to read this for a college class and at the time I thought the same way some of the negative reviewers did -- Its boring, its "common sense". But the more I encountered situations with friends and family where I thought "you know this is something you could easily control with a behavioral therapy plan" the more I realized that what the professor I had said was true -- If you just skim the book without trying to apply the principles, it won't mean much to you. But if you think of it practically (and try a project of some kind yourself) you'll realize the power of it. Most people get discouraged when they try to change themselves because they try to do too much at once. Taking baby steps IS common sense, but if its so easy and anyone knew how to do it, we'd all be exactly the people we want to be, now wouldn't we?

I recommend this book to EVERYONE who says "I wish I could do this" or "I wish I didn't always think like that". If you want to change and you're willing to sit down, make a good plan, and follow through with it, this method will work for you. If you don't really want to change, or you don't believe you can, then you'll fail and it isn't the method's fault.

Purchased this book for class last semester i received it on time and it was very well packaged. Definitely recommend this product to others.

Of course, if you have no common sense or will power, the book might help a little. Overall, I found it ridiculously boring.
It is always amusing to me that one reads someone else's book for advice on how to help oneself. I don't get it... it is supposed to be self help, right?
