Summary "It's not you--it's just the way you're wired. That's the message psychologist Amy Johnson tells readers with bad habits in her unique guide, The Little Book of Big Change. Drawing on a powerful combination of neuroscience and spirituality, this book shows readers that they are not their habits. Rather, their habits and addictions are the result of simple brain wiring that is easily reversed. By learning to stop bad habits at the source, readers will take charge of their habits and addictions--once and for all"-- Provided by publisher.
