Synopsis: REDIRECT: CHANGING THE STORIES WE LIVE BY

"Redirect" by Timothy D. Wilson, author of "Strangers to Ourselves", whose work has been acclaimed by writers such as Malcolm Gladwell, is a groundbreaking book of psychology that shows how changing the stories we tell about ourselves can help solve our problems. Why will most self help books leave you worse off? How do youth rehabilitation programmes backfire? And how can one volunteer help the whole of society? Redirecting the stories you tell about yourself - and changing the stories others are telling about themselves - can help everyone, whether improving education and parenting skills or reducing crime, teen pregnancies, and drug and alcohol abuse. This timely book offers practical advice that has been proven to give real results. "Redirect" will show you exactly how you can be happier and more successful, using only the power of your own stories. Timothy D. Wilson is the Sherrell J. Aston Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia. He is the author of "Strangers to Ourselves", which was named by "New York Times Magazine" as one of the Best 100 Ideas of 2002, and is co-author of the bestselling "Social Psychology" textbook, now in its seventh edition. He lives in Charlottesville, Virginia, with his wife and two children. "A masterpiece". (Malcolm Gladwell, author of "Blink"). "This may well be the single most important psychology book ever written". (Daniel Gilbert, author of "Stumbling on Happiness"). "A stimulating, valuable read". ("New Scientist"). "With a deft narrative touch ...and a ferocious commitment to scientific evidence, Timothy Wilson has made a remarkable contribution to knowledge". (Robert Cialdini, author of "Influence").

WILSON, TIMOTHY D.

about author

Timothy D. Wilson is Sherrell J. Aston Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia. He received his B.A. from Hampshire College and his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. He is a social psychologist who has investigated unconscious processing, the limits of introspection, the consequences of introspection, affective forecasting, and happiness. In 2001 he received an All University Outstanding Teaching Award. In 2009 was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and in 2010 he received the University of Virginia Distinguished Scientist Award. Wilson is the author of Strangers to Ourselves: Discovering the Adaptive Unconscious, published by Harvard University Press. Malcolm Gladwell wrote in the New Yorker that "Strangers to Ourselves" . . . is what popular psychology ought to be (and rarely is): thoughtful, beautifully written, and full of unexpected insights." On his web page Gladwell says, "In Blink, I probably owe a bigger intellectual debt to Tim Wilson (and his longtime collaborator, Jonathan Schooler) than anyone else, and Strangers to Ourselves is probably the most influential book I've ever read." Wilson is the coauthor of the best-selling text, Social Psychology (Prentice-Hall), now in its seventh edition.
