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.

  • Much needed!

    By Hie_roe_glyphics
    This book was amazing. The author does an amazing job of detailing how the human brain works in relation to habit formation; and even gives us a “solution” for reshaping bad habits.

    I am completely astonished by what I have learned about myself, and the human brain from reading this. I really think that no matter what field, or walk of life that you are in this book will put you on a path you didn’t even realize you needed.
