Quick read that got to the heart of how to consciously and subconsciously change your unwanted behaviors. Applies to everyone, so I recommend it far and wide.

The Power of Habit was helpful for me. There were several new ideas in how to overcome the self, like: never quit a habit, replace it with a better habit. Also do something you hate each day. A good beginners book for controlling the "self".

This book basically was a pep talk on transforming your life by establishing good habits. The self-punishing suggestions they offered for developing willpower did not seem to me to be based on sound behavioral science. I was hoping for something better informed by current research. If you are looking for older inspiring material, may I suggest The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin. If you want something current by someone who knows something about behavioral psychology, this is not it.
Self awareness, replace not erase, consequences, mental dress rehersal, one habit at a time, start small, persistence--lots goes in to changing habits. Some good suggestions on how to establish new healthy routines.

Nice pep talk on changing habits but I don't think changing habits is as easy as it sounds. Still, I like to pull it out every couple of years for a bit of inspiration.
