How People Change – Allen Wheelis
Excellent writing; sage observations. Four stars only because the title almost suggests a self-help book, and while there is plenty of wisdom here, it doesn’t neatly fit that genre.
But this book has stayed with me in a way typical self-help books don’t. One person found this helpful. Wheelis presents thoughts in a simple heart felt manner, and backs up his theories with clinical study. He is extremely open, unassuming, frank, and sensitve. It is a book that launched plenty of thinking, for chaneg, about change and pain. There is much about the gap between what we know and how we behave.
The most challenging stage of change is moving from contemplative to action and he details this transgression. Kudos to Wheelis for this poignant piece of insight. I truly missed this book and am so thrilled to have found it. It’s up there with “The Road Less Traveled”.
I haven’t read it in years, but it was one of three book that I would rate as life-changing for me. Since it was introduced to me in college, I’ve bought and given this book away so many times I cannot count, but each time it was gone I would seek out another copy sometimes in bulk. What an important work! This book clarified many things about change and the nature of humans.
Because it is one of those works whose every sentence packs a punch, it will need to be reread a couple of times. This is also a deeply moving book written without dramatic flair. I love the use of analogy when trying to express any concept and so Wheelis’ use of his own personal story to share his insights and challenge my thinking was a perfect fit for me. A quick, easy read – I selected it seeing it referenced in Peck’s book The Road Less Traveled; if you like Peck – you’ll like this book as well.
