The bestselling author of Undoing Depression offers a brain-based guide to permanently ending bad habits Richard O'Connor's bestselling book Undoing Depression has become a touchstone in the field, helping thousands of therapists and patients overcome depressive patterns. In Rewire, O'Connor expands those ideas, showing how we actually have two brains--a conscious deliberate self and an automatic self that makes most of our decisions--and how we can train the latter to ignore distractions, withstand temptations, and interrupt reflexive, self-sabotaging responses. Rewire gives readers a road-map to overcoming the most common self-destructive habits, including procrastination, excessive worrying, internet addiction, overeating, risk-taking, and self-medication, among others.
