The Power of Habit Charles Duhigg read online review & book description:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • 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.

  • Will Change Lives

    By PassionFruite11
    The examples that this book took me through were extraordinary. I learned so much about habits, what they are, how they help, and how to change them. I am an aspiring psychologist, and I use what I’ve learned from this book in so many of my teachings, for most things we do are habits. Truly taught me so much, I need to get it for my bookshelf!
  • Catalyst for change

    This book compelled me to get my anger and smoking under control.
  • Very good

    By carmibay
    This book isn’t a magic pill to end all bad habits or create an array of good habits, but it does a fantastic job of breaking down the psychology of habits. The book was easy to read even with all the science so that even those that are intimidated by medical talk can follow along with all the examples and studies. I haven’t used the information in this book to revamp my life, but I have all the confidence that I CAN now. I’m very excited and am glad I made this purchase!
  • It is good but there are better

    By iveth2200
    It’s amazingly easy to understand how to get rid of bad habits , but for me it was too bored sometimes , it’s my opinion. ( some might disagree) for the price , you could read better books with the same Perspective.
  • Great read

    By Prathyush9789
    One of the best books I read following the principles by Ray Dalio. It has given great insights into understanding what goes under forming breaking and changing habits. If you are struggling to make those changes in life and struck with figuring out the how, I strongly suggest this book.

  • The Power Of Habit

    By Yabitse
    I love this book! It’s powerful in the since of we could all find habits we all have good/bad, like/dislike, easy/hard, or harmless/painful and what this book does is give light on our everyday habits some we might already know about some not. This book also provides ways to bring a habit into our life or change existing one. Worth a read for everyone for sure.
