    Why might some sex education programs result in more teen pregnancies? Why did reading that self-help book make you feel less happy? What's the best way to recover from trauma? Can we actually improve our lives by redirecting our thinking?

    Story

    Interesting book, but Wilson spends most the time describing educational intervention programs that don't work, why they don't work and why the government spends so much money on them.

    I was hoping for more in-depth information on methods that are effective in changing behavior. These experiments are briefly described before moving on to the next popular program that doesn't work.

    However, I would recommend it to parents, teachers, school board members, political leaders and anyone with a stake in the effectiveness of institutionalized education.

    A stunning new approach to how individuals can not only change their lives for the better in the workplace, but also their lives away from the office, including (but not limited to) finding ways to improve one's working relationship with others, one's overall health, outlook on life, and so on. For example, why is it that 95% of all diet attempts fail? Why do New Year's Resolutions last no more than a few days? Why can't people with good intentions seem to make consistent and positive strides in the way they want to improve their careers, financial fitness, physical fitness, and so on?

    Any additional comments?

    No simple to follow "secrets to success". Just all the pieces you need to put in place if you want to change yourself.
