NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The perfect gift for anyone trying to start the new year off right, this instant classic explores how we can change our lives by changing our habits.
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Wall Street Journal • Financial Times
In The Power of Habit, award-winning business reporter Charles Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. Distilling vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives that take us from the boardrooms of Procter & Gamble to the sidelines of the NFL to the front lines of the civil rights movement, Duhigg presents a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential. At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, being more productive, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. As Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.
Praise for The Power of Habit
“Sharp, provocative, and useful.”—Jim Collins
This book is amazing. It does go a little long and I think you will get the point after a while but really great insights to human nature. The reason behind why we do what we do and how to break that cycle. The Narrator is very good and the book is peppered with stories that keep you listening. I would recommend this book to anyone trying to break or create habits into your life.
1st Half is a Must Read
This book is amazing. I drive a lot and I usually only listen when I'm driving but this was one of those books I couldn't wait to hear more and have recommended to countless people to read. Applicable as a business, self improvement, or psychological book. Very interesting and highly recommended. However the 2nd half of the book does drag on a bit but they tie everything together at the end.
Ignore low ratings too
Awesome book. I am 47 years old and bit my finger nails all my life and have not bit them since I listened to the book over a month ago. I have listened to it over and over.
