'Triggers: Creating Behavior That Lasts-Becoming the Person You Want to Be' by Marshall Goldsmith takes a no-holds bar approach to confronting us about the habits we are trying to quit.
The book is broken into three sections. The first explains the things that keep us from becoming who we want to be. The second guides us through a process to change. The book finishes with ways to give readers more structure for the changes we want.
The book explains the environmental factors that influence us, but rather than let us off the hook, it's here merely to bring it to our awareness, not to give us excuse fodder. The reader is encouraged to develop of set of guided and hard questions to ask to direct the change that is desired. Real life examples are given.
It's a tough love approach. Brutally honest but with an encouraging level of encouragement. There is a definite call to action and the steps can be adapted. While I've read other books on this subject, I think this might be the best one on transforming oneself out of damaging behaviors.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Crown Business and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
