About the Author

John C. Norcross, PhD, is Distinguished Professor of Psychology at the University of Scranton, Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry at SUNY Upstate Medical College, and a board-certified clinical psychologist in part time practice. He has authored more than 300 publications and edited or co-written twenty-two professional books.

Kristin Loberg has collaborated on a lengthy list of New York Times bestselling books, including Dr. David Perlmutter's Grain Brain and Dr. David B. Agus's The End of Illness and A Short Guide to a Long Life.

Jonathon Norcross graduated from St. Joseph's University, where he studied English and film. He works in the TV and film industry in New York City.


Norcross, a recognized expert on behavior change and psychotherapy, demonstrates five basic steps to eliminate a negative behavior, start a positive one, or simply learn a new skill. The steps involved include psyching oneself up, prepping for commitment, and persevering. Norcross helps readers track progress, build commitment, identify triggers, and more. While the term "changeology" is somewhat hokey, the material is good and can aid self-improvement efforts. (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

"I have rarely read one [self-help book] that I truly felt could bring real, meaningful change into a person's life. But despite my wariness of the self-help genre, I found John C. Norcross's Changeology to be one such book . . . for most of the kinds of change that people are already trying to make, Changeology will prove to be a wonderful source of assistance.
