This is a solid read. I'm so happy I made to the very last page. It's full of stories, backed with studies and finishes with some practical advice on how to identify and change in our own habit loops.
the book was really engaging and had great examples. very interesting how something we do unconsciously has such a great impact on our lives
Somewhat interesting although honestly I've already forgotten most of what this book is about. Most of it seems to consistent of some case studies with logical dedications drawn out a bit too long.
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.
