Product description

Review

"In this fascinating book, Charles Duhigg reveals the myriad ways in which our habits shape our lives. Do you want to know why Febreze became a bestselling product? Or how the science of habits can be used to improve willpower? Read this book." (Jonah Lehrer)

"Once you read this book, you’ll never look at yourself, your organisation, or your world quite the same way." (Daniel H. Pink)

"Absolutely fascinating." (Wired)

"This is a first-rate book – based on an impressive mass of research, written in a lively style and providing just the right balance of intellectual seriousness with practical advice on how to break our bad habits." (The Economist)

"Plenty of business books that try to tap into the scientific world manage to distil complicated research into readable prose. But few take the next step and become essential manuals for business and living. The Power of Habit is an exception." (Andrew Hill Financial Times) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Inside Flap

Most of the choices we make each day may feel like they are the products of well-considered decision-making, but they're not. They are habits. And though each habit means relatively little on its own, over time they have enormous impacts on our health, productivity, financial security and happiness.

People have puzzled over our habits for centuries, but it is only in the past two decades that neurologists, psychologists, sociologists, and marketers have really begun to understand how habits work - and more importantly, how they change.

In The Power of Habit, award-winning New York Times journalist Charles Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries to explain why habits exist, and how they can be changed - to transform businesses, communities, and our lives. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
