SEPTEMBER 14th to SEPTEMBER 28th, 2011


REDIRECT
by TIMOTHY D. WILSON

SYNOPSIS:
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.

  1. Yes I have gotten great advice that helped in a bad situation. I was told that if I am angry about something, rather than discuss it in the moment to wait until the next day to discuss. Oftentimes, upon doing so I decide it wasn't a major issue to begin with. However, if it is still bothering me, I know it is serious and we sit and discuss calmly.

  25. The best piece of advice I ever received above and beyond every other piece of advice is that if you 'want' something, wait 24 hrs. I have found that it works wonderfully. I would say using this method, out of every 10-12 things I want, I really only ever truly want 1. This has saved me tons of money and buyers remorse.;0)

  28. The best advice I got was in the Food service industry as a chef. It made sense, but was a simple way of looking at things. It was "If it doesn't look like something you would pay top dollar for, don't serve it"
