    At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

    If you could sum up The Power of Habit in three words, what would they be?

    interesting, engrossing, useful

    What does Mike Chamberlain bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Pace, clarity, gives the subjects life.


    If you could give The Power of Habit a new subtitle, what would it be?

    The continual programming of the human brain.

    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.
