Audio Book Summary

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.

“A flat-out great read.”—David Allen, bestselling author of Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity
“You’ll never look at yourself, your organization, or your world quite the same way.”—Daniel H. Pink, bestselling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind
“Entertaining . . . enjoyable . . . fascinating . . . a serious look at the science of habit formation and change.”—The New York Times Book Review

    I couldn’t turn it off! Charles Duhigg is so good at turning a long list of cases into a story that holds your attention. I was left inspired and encouraged. My friends are getting tired of hearing about Everything I learned, but I am already using his discoveries at work and at home.

    I was not a big fan of the narrator. He tried different voices for different characters and it was annoying to listen to. The book itself is good with a wealth of examples to prove the authors points. Takes a weird twist at the end where it becomes very philosophical.

    The information was interesting but mostly about product habits and not creating your own habits in life. Yes, you can take the things said and apply them to yourself but was hoping for more details about everyday habit forming.

    This has some good research but most of the analysis are extremely poor... It\'s missing clear explanations for readers to apply those tips.
