Change or Die. What if you were given that choice? If you didn't, your time would end soon--a lot sooner than it had to. Could you change when change matters most?

This is the question Alan Deutschman poses in Change or Die, which began as a sensational cover story by the same title for Fast Company. Deutschman concludes that although we all have the ability to change our behavior, we rarely ever do. From patients suffering from heart disease to repeat offenders in the criminal justice system to companies trapped in the mold of unsuccessful business practices, many of us could prevent ominous outcomes by simply changing our mindset.

A powerful book with universal appeal, Change or Die deconstructs and debunks age-old myths about change and empowers us with three critical keys--relate, repeat, and reframe--to help us make important positive changes in our lives. Explaining breakthrough research and progressive ideas from a wide selection of leaders in medicine, science, and business (including Dr. Dean Ornish, Mimi Silbert of the Delancey Street Foundation, Bill Gates, Daniel Boulud, and many others), Deutschman demonstrates how anyone can achieve lasting, revolutionary changes that are positive, attainable, and absolutely vital.

    What is it that prevents 90% of heart patients from changing their lifestyle after bypass operations?Why does the criminal pentitentiary system fail within 6 months for two-thirds of cases?How did Toyota win over disgruntled GM motor employees and turn the Fremont site into a Lean showcase?Deutschman shows that facts and fear are no panacea to change. The real key is to give people hope and Deutschman takes the reader through many successful case studies based on 3 keys, or the 3Rs: Relate, Repeat & Reframe. In addition to the three main case studies, the book also covers studies of significant change initiatives at IBM, Yahoo & MicroSoft amongst others as well as in the author's personal life. The book can be recommended as an interesting read for anyone contemplating personal change or change in the working environment, or indeed life as a Change Agent.The only minus with the book is the cheapness of the cover and paper. However, for less than £10 who can complain when the content makes the book a rivetting read.

    This book was recommended to me as I work in the health and lifestyle change sector. I have found the content very useful to reflect and apply personally and to clients. It also explains why medical doctors rarely facilitate long lasting positive changes with a fear, force and facts approach. I was interested to learn just how important the environment in which people are placed and the people surrounding them are vital in making transformative change to cultures of behaving and thinking. An easy, interesting read.
