Product Details


“In this masterpiece, Nowicki gets it right and delivers what he promises. In an incredibly engaging way, he convincingly conveys why locus of control is vital to people’s physical and mental well-being, relationships, and achievement in all aspects of life. Capitalizing on a massive and impressive body of research, this pioneering psychologist highlights the value of an internal, rather than external, locus of control, which gives people the strength, energy, and determination to successfully cope with life’s challenges and enjoy life’s opportunities. This fun book offers invaluable, creative, diverse, and appealing suggestions for modifying your own locus of control and improving the quality of your life. This is a must-read for anyone invested in having life choices, which hopefully is everyone.”
—Nadine J. Kaslow, PhD, ABPP, former president, American Psychological Association, and professor, Emory University School of Medicine

“This is a treat to read. It will be of benefit to all of us, young and old, as it provides insights into how we can improve our lives, and especially how to enable our children and grandchildren, our pupils and workmates to overcome problems. I recommend it to all, but especially to parents and teachers.”
—Jean Golding, Emeritus Professor of Paediatric Epidemiology, University of Bristol, United Kingdom

“With trademark warmth and a profound understanding of the psychological forces that underscore human behavior, Stephen Nowicki translates a complex concept into an approachable method for understanding how our perceptions not only frame our options but also help determine our life circumstances. In this clear and engaging narrative, full of wonderful stories, locus of control emerges as a lens through which we can better understand and influence academic, business, and personal achievement. In the classroom I have watched Professor Nowicki endow his students with frameworks that drive their lives in unexpected and rewarding directions, and I am delighted that his readers will now benefit from the same transformational experiences.”
—Andrea S. Hershatter, senior associate dean, Goizueta Business School, Emory University
