The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg should be on every prisoner’s books-to-read wish list.
Forming good habits, changing old habits, reducing bad habits – are all much easier when you understand how habits are formed in our brain stem’s ancient ‘lizard brain’ area beyond conscious awareness.
Habits are not formed or changed the way most people believe. You will be fascinated by this useful book.
