Rick’s guest is Professor Tim Wilson of the U.Va. Psychology department to talk about his new book Redirect: The Surprising New Science of Psychological Change. You can read more about Tim at http://people.virginia.edu/~tdw/

What if there were a magic pill that could make you happier, turn you into a better parent, solve a number of your teenager’s behavior problems, reduce racial prejudice, and close the achievement gap in education? Well, there is no such magic pill-but there is a new scientifically based approach called story editing that can accomplish all of this. It works by redirecting the stories we tell about ourselves and the world around us, with subtle prompts, in ways that lead to lasting change. In Redirect, world-renowned psychologist Timothy Wilson shows how story-editing works and how you can use it in your everyday life.
