Editorial Reviews


“I loved reading this book! The Little Book of Big Change will help the field of addictions and anyone suffering from a debilitating habit to find an easier, more enlightened path to full recovery, not only from habits and addictions, but a recovery of the innate health that is all of our birthright. I will encourage all the treatment centers I work with to use this as a course book for treatment. Johnson has moved the field forward to a new paradigm of treatment and recovery from addictions.”
Joseph Bailey, MA, LP, licensed psychologist, author of The Serenity Principle, and coauthor of Slowing Down to the Speed of Life

“The clarity, wisdom, and practicality of this book are simply extraordinary and unmatched in the field of addiction, making it the absolute number one read for anyone struggling with or treating destructive habits. A powerful and radiant light that brings instant relief, hope, and peace of mind.”
—Erika Bugbee, MA, partner and cofounder of the Online Learning Division at Pransky & Associates

The Little Book of Big Change is going to be a game changer for my counseling practice. I can’t wait to share this book with my clients. Amy writes in such a simple, commonsense way about what’s behind all habits...whether behaviors or thoughts that we would like to see change. It is a ‘one-size-fits-all’ kind of book. I see big changes ahead for all who read this book (including myself)!”
Karen Miller Williams, Three Principles practitioner and mental well-being expert for over thirty-five years, emotional well-being educator, counselor, coach, and consultant

“This book completely overturns current ideas about addiction, the people who suffer with them, and the human ability for change. Amy not only provides hope and a simple solution for eliminating addictive behaviors, she offers a profoundly hopeful look at the ability we all have to feel more at peace in life.”
Mara Gleason, MSW, cofounder of One Thought, a leading global company that helps individuals and businesses unleash their greatest potential through clear thinking

“I love this groundbreaking book! It frees people from the misguided idea that breaking self-destructive habits takes willpower, ‘bootstrap pulling,’ tools, techniques, or thought reconditioning! It helps people see the innocence of their self-defeating habits so they can let go of guilt and blame. It helps people realize that they have all the mental health they need already inside of them. It shows people how to use the power of thought in their best interest. When people grasp these new insights, their habits naturally melt away.”
Thomas M. Kelley, PhD, associate professor at Wayne State University, and licensed psychologist

“When Amy Johnson speaks of spirituality in this book, she is not playing lightly. Johnson speaks of a spirituality that both moves the universe and is also at the heart of ending addiction. This book reveals psychospiritual principles that are the essence of all spiritual teachings, and finally, tie spirit and science together. The information in this book can free you not just from addiction to behaviors, but from addiction to thoughts, the real culprit! A clear, profound, well-written, and revolutionary book.”
Ami Chen Mills-Naim, author of The Spark Inside and State of Mind in the Classroom, and founder of Ami Chen Coaching and Education

“Thanks to this powerful book, I’ve been Googling ‘How to Build a Time Machine,’ because, my gosh, I would have loved this book back when my worst addiction (habit) was ruining me, but I find now it also works, as a system, to delete even the smallest of current annoying habits! Very highly recommended!”
Steve Chandler, author of Time Warrior

“Amy’s potentially life-changing book gets right to the heart of who we really are: spiritual beings already and always healthy at our core. Amy’s presentation of the spiritual understanding of the Three Principles provides genuine hope that everyone already has what it takes to be free of their addictions and habits!”
Dicken Bettinger, EdD, retired licensed psychologist, and founder of Three Principles Mentoring

“Absolutely brilliant! The Little Book of Big Change is a game changer and is now officially one of my favorite self-help books. Authentic, gentle, and wise, Johnson masterfully leads us to life-changing insights—it’s impossible to read this book and not immediately feel better in a long-lasting, ‘I see,’ way. If you’re stuck on some habit, read this book! You will likely get more than you can imagine.”
Lisa Esile, coauthor of Whose Mind Is It Anyway?

“Combining modern neuroscience with timeless spiritual principles, Amy Johnson delivers a new understanding of habits that is both fascinating and practical, liberating and simple. She explains why harmful habits aren’t powerful, stable parts of who we are, but temporary logjams that cloud our natural state of well-being. Johnson helps her readers put aside faulty thoughts and urges, and points them toward the guidance of their innate wisdom. Anyone with a harmful behavioral or mental habit needs to read this book!”
Kathryn Hansen, author of Brain over Binge
