Discover how to create easy-to-use products to help people make positive changes. I received an electronic version of this book for free on LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review.
While this book focused on the how and why of processes to design products that can help behavior change, I also found it helpful to better understand behavior change in myself. I now better understand why some things that seemed logical did not work and now I have new principles to try in order to better achieve success.
This is a book that I would have enjoyed as a textbook in college. This book was written in a format that felt more like a dialog instead of a dry collection of data on a topic. For me, this made it easier to read and understand. I really appreciated the "On a Napkin" summary section at the ends of the chapters. I felt the style in which they were written made them more helpful than many other types of summaries I have read in textbooks.
I was excited to see the appendix that had "Resources to Learn More" which gave a little information about each resource, such as the topic specifics and why it might be helpful. I read this book on a Kindle Paperwhite. I liked how the footnote links would just show the data for that footnote on top of the page I was reading instead of taking me to another page that I had to back out of unless I clicked on the option to go to the footnote page.
However, there was one format feature that did not work well on my Paperwhite. There was a chart where different colors indicated different meanings. However, in black and white, there was no difference in shades, so I was unable to figure out what was what on the chart. The only other format oddity that stuck out to me was that the "y" at the end of "Appendix C. Bibliography" was on the second line by itself instead of pulling the whole word down with it to the next line.
This is definitely a book I want to keep around for future reading and reference, though I would prefer to have a physical copy, as that is more helpful to me for this type of book. I think that there is material in this book that could be useful to anyone studying behavior change. He identifies the target behavior, the new behavior and what is needed to make that happen.
