I will say that this was a good book. The author is a great story teller, and I was very intrigued throughout. However, it receives 3 stars because there is zero practical use to everything that is discussed. If I had been expecting only stories this would have gotten 5 stars. Unfortunately, that's not why I purchased this book.
This book contains a lot of detailed information. It is well-researched a worthwhile read. However, the author really should have assembled a few key takeaways at the end of each chapter or section. It is sometimes difficult to recall or discern exactly what the two or three major takeaways or applications might be. As it stands now, this book reads more like a text book than a self-help book. But it's a good place to start if you want to better understand your habits.
Can't believe I waited this long to read it.
Definitely pair with Smarter, Faster, Better. Together, Duhigg's first two books are a mini-course in understanding some of the cognitive and behavioral differences in how people and organizations think, respond, and act in life and work. He also offers insight into driving change in yourself and organizations.
excellent, well developed theme, power of will, keystone habits, you can't miss it. I put on practice several lessons. For instance, the habit of drinking coffee every morning!
This book was amazing. It took potentially dry science and statistics and infused it with anecdotes and real-life uses thst it was not only practical but enjoyable to listen to.
