How We Change is written with gentle wisdom, leavened with wit, and illuminated by deftly sketched case histories. Ross Ellenhorn points a unique path to personal transformation, challenging us to forgo what he aptly calls 'the seductive reasonableness of staying the same.' - author of In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with AddictionCountless self help books claim to help people change. But Ross Ellenhorn's How We Change actually does it, not through pithy slogans and relentless bullet points, but by encouraging readers to confront their own behaviors, patterns, setbacks, and fears. Erudite, funny, and highly accessible, How We Change is one of those books that stays with you for a long time. By the end of it, it's safe to say you'll be a different person. - author of Duped: Double Lives, False Identities, and the Con Man I Almost MarriedRoss Ellenhorn has given us an elegant, convincing, and deeply humanist approach to understanding our resistance to change-and in doing so, he helps us to overcome it. Engagingly written and scientifically rigorous, his book is an important contribution to the literature of mental wellness. - bestselling author of The End of Overeating; Capture; and Fast Carbs, Slow Carbs
