Richard Fast knows what it’s like to have a detestable habit. He 
had one: smoking. Like many smokers, he picked up the habit as a 
teenager and by 16 he was committed to it. By the time he was in 
his early 20s he had a 60-cigarret-a-day habit.

He loathed this part of his life, angry that he was controlled by an 
utterly destructive habit. So Fast decided to quit, but not 
immediately that day or by trying to gradually cut back like past 
quitting attempts. Instead, he set out to reprogram his thinking 
about smoking from pleasurable and impossible-to-quit to 
focusing on how much he hated it and how destructive it was on 
his health.

Twenty-five years later he says the greatest accomplishment of his 
life was kicking the habit, and from this success he set out to help 
others quit bad habits or acquire desirable ones. Fast’s “29 Days” 
series is a step-by-step program that helps participants re-train 
their thought process about life goals. His series currently 
includes: 29 Days … to your perfect weight, 29 Days … to your life 
without cigarettes, 29 Days … to save money and achieve financial 
independence and 29 Days … to becoming a great listener and 
communicator.

“The ’29 Days’ programs are designed to generate gentle, effortless, forward momentum – every day,” 
Fast says. “These small gentle steps engage the cortex, the rational thinking brain, while simultaneously 
laying down a new roadway for our subconscious thoughts. This new roadway is the superhighway that 
builds new habits and lasting results.”

A prolific developer of board games, puzzles and toys, Fast is most notably the maker of the early 90s 
board game MindTrap (Mattel) – which challenges players to correctly answer brain teaser questions.

Fast is a native and current resident of Ontario and a full-time writer. He is a member of the International 
Listening Association and holds a black belt in jiu-jitsu. He and his wife, Michele Bertolin, co-author of 29 
Days … to your perfect weight, live in Burlington. For more information, please visit www.29Daysto.com.
