power of habit

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.

— Prisoner in Sing Sing Correctional Facility, Ossining, NY

Note: When sending books to prisoners, it is usually required that books be sent directly from the publisher or bookseller. Please check the rules for the specific facility, which can usually be found on the website. (If you don’t see mail rules on the site, look in the family handbook, also usually available to view and/or download on the facility website.)
