Did you know water is the most apt analogy for how a habit works? That the will to believe is the most important ingredient in creating the belief to change? Start building good keystone habits as you learn how through powerful, relatable stories and psychology.

The content of this book is a guide to behavior science and the secret to why some teachers can manage classrooms and others struggle with daily discipline. I am going to recommended this for a book study with my teachers and school psychs this year.
