    Story
    "this is a concentration of knowledge and wisdom. "

    I loved almost all of it. It is a real science about change. it mostly uses methods for willful adherence to the right behaviors that lead to change. I believe adding negative reinforcement will give more strength to change efforts although this book tends to exclude it. My next assignment is to bow apply, so that I move from knowledge to skills. Overall this is one of my best reads.

    The author does a great job breaking the steps of influence into bite-size groups and then uses robust examples to help make each step actionable.
