Product description


Sharp, provocative, and useful. -- Jim Collins

Few [books] become essential manuals for business and living. The Power of Habit is an exception. Charles Duhigg not only explains how habits are formed but how to kick bad ones and hang on to the good. ― Financial Times

Once you read this book, you’ll never look at yourself, your organisation, or your world quite the same way.

Absolutely fascinating.Wired

Entertaining . . . enjoyable . . . fascinating . . . a serious look at the science of habit formation and change. ― The New York Times Book Review

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

I have been spinning like a top since reading The Power of Habit, New York Times journalist Charles Duhigg's fascinating best-seller about how people, businesses and organizations develop the positive routines that make them productive-and happy. ― The Washington Post

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.

A fresh examination of how routine behaviours take hold and whether they are susceptible to change . . . The stories that Duhigg has knitted together are all fascinating in their own right, but take on an added dimension when wedded to his examination of habits. ― Associated Press

Duhigg gives a compelling insight in to the world of subconscious behaviour. This is no homespun remedy, Duhigg's observations have real, scientific gravitas. ― Woman & Home

Reviewed in the United States on 27 August 2018
Use the Power of Habit to make the changes that you've wanted to make but haven't gotten around to.

I've learned to exercise regularly, wake up early, and make healthier food choices. My habits and systems have improved my wellness, and if it worked for me, then it can definitely work for you.

I've also picked up a positive habit of reading at night before bed instead of mindlessly scrolling on my phone.
