The Holy Shit Moment
I got a mention in a new book, and I promised James Fell that I would post a picture of myself with my copy. So…
Here’s my brief appearance in the role of Quotable Guy #7:

To have it was to change, no work required. Just *poof!* I’m different now.”
“Forced marches across a tipping point.” This is an apt description for what most cognitive-behavioural-change models are built around.
