Little changes can make a big, big difference! In The Little Book of Big Change, psychologist Amy Johnson shows you how to rewire your brain and overcome your bad habits - once and for all.
No matter what your bad habit is, you have the power to change it. Drawing on a powerful combination of neuroscience and spirituality, this book will show you that you are not your habits. Rather, your habits and addictions are the result of simple brain wiring that is easily reversed. By learning to stop bad habits at the source, you will take charge of your habits and addictions for good.
Anything done repeatedly has the potential to form neural circuitry in the brain. In this light, habits and addictions are impersonal brain wiring problems that result from taking your habitual thinking as truth, and acting on that thinking in the form of doing your habit - over and over. This book offers a number of small changes you can make in your everyday life that will help you stop your bad habit in its tracks.
If you want to understand the science behind your habit, make the decision to end it, and commit to real, lasting change, this book will help you to finally take charge of your life - once and for all.

"If you're ready to change, this is the book"
I mean, WOW!! For anyone like me that has struggled for decades with one or more unwanted habits, this book is a permanent game-changer. In addition to Amy's insights into the nature of thoughts & emotions as they relate to addictions, obsessions, compulsivity, etc. being spot on, her book is extraordinarily well written and refreshing in it's simple (but not simplistic), clear, easy approach. And it's completely devoid of all the usual psycho-baffle-gab so commonly found in the self help genre. As a result of the freedom I acquired through the insights written about by Amy, I am not only recommending this book to my own clients, I am retaining Amy as my own life coach. If you are looking to free yourself of one or more unwanted habits, even if you've tried everything under the sun, the answers in this book are what you're looking for. If you are already a practicer of mindfulness, this book will add even more to your understanding.
"Listened to this three times"
Great book, stilted performance.
I really connected with this book, the content and anecdotes resonates deeply with me. I very much struggled with the performance and found the readers voice sharp and somewhat robotic. Overall worth the listen.
This book was nothing revolutionary for me in terms of information but something about how the author presented it clicked with me and has helped me immensely.
"I was expecting more"
This book narrates exactly how we feel when we continuously do our habits and why we do them. Unfortunately it doesn't provide a useful nor a real solution to the problem at all, trying to think different or cope with thinking about the habit is not a solution.
"Good material, challenging to get through."
I love the content and purpose of this book. It has some really great ideas and concepts. I'm not sure exactly what it was but I found it challenging to get through the book each time I turned it on. I feel like I was continually waiting to get to the point and couldn't wait for it to be over. I was waiting and waiting for the "how to" but never really arrived specifically. There's a lot of drawn out, repeat or unnecessary filler examples of people's issues. I feel like the essence of the material could've been presented in 45 minutes or less very effectively. But I do find the material itself very valuable and enlightening, and it shed some new light.
"Transformative and life-changing"
This book was profound. It's been a long time since I have received as many new insights as I did from reading this book. I'm so glad that I read it
With this beautifully simple premise, Dr. Amy Johnson offers an effective way to eliminate addiction or to change any habit that stands between us and the life we want.
The book covered habits from a variety of perspectives and levels. I think it was written well and many different people could relate their habit to it.
"Excellent 3 principles teaching with emphasis on beating habits."
I have read Jamie Smarts "Clarity" and got very interested in the 3 principle's. It helped me see the world in an amazing new way, To actually glimpse the real me and see that I am not my thoughts but what is thinking those thoughts. Clarity was more a general look at the principles with some emphasis on how to apply them towards business.
This books focus is on habitual thinking and gave me some very valuable insights into how to see habit in a new way that disempowers those habits and in so doing gives us freedom from them.
This is an excellent book. I highly recommend it to anyone who would like to beat a habit or anyone who is interested in the true nature of how we create our reality and how you might improve on it.
"Nothing new here"
I didn't get anything from this read other than, "Habits happen because you get something of value," - which most of us know, right? Then to forgive yourself for having bad habits. Okay, that's not at all transformative. But perhaps I missed the point of the book.
Not at all. I love to learn and develop myself. I just found this one to be disappointing.
"absolutely loved it!"
such an easy listen a much have! I've went back to this on numerous occasions & recommended it to everyone I know! Thank you Amy Johnson
"The mechanics of real change"
I already have! That pretty much says it all....
It lays out why you do what you do, and how to change what you do which you don't like! It also provides the blueprint to adjust and control your behaviour. A truly valuable skill to master! Brilliant book, Exceptional even. I highly recommend it.
"A wise investment in yourself!"
I loved this book. Will be one I go back to a few times. There's so much to see freshly for me around habits. I'd recommend for anyone actively seeking to drop a bad habit or addiction - any and all! I was listening in the context of eating habits and it has been impactful already. I feel more able to make more healthy choices more of the time.
