Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Atomic Habits by James Clear, read by the author. 

A revolutionary system to get 1 percent better every day.

People think when you want to change your life, you need to think big. But world-renowned habits expert James Clear has discovered another way. He knows that real change comes from the compound effect of hundreds of small decisions - doing two push-ups a day, waking up five minutes early or holding a single short phone call. 

He calls them atomic habits.

In this groundbreaking book, Clears reveals exactly how these minuscule changes can grow into such life-altering outcomes. He uncovers a handful of simple life hacks (the forgotten art of Habit Stacking, the unexpected power of the Two Minute Rule or the trick to entering the Goldilocks Zone) and delves into cutting-edge psychology and neuroscience to explain why they matter. Along the way, he tells inspiring stories of Olympic gold medalists, leading CEOs and distinguished scientists who have used the science of tiny habits to stay productive, motivated and happy. 

These small changes will have a revolutionary effect on your career, your relationships and your life.

Great book, highly recommended

I enjoy how the author, James Clear, put his own experience in the centre of the book and explains how he discovered the power of habits for himself. Very down to earth and a pleasure to read! The content is very digestible too.

A wonderful book

The book is written with real clarity. It makes a good case for why the technique suggested work. And the book is packed with techniques.

The work is a deep dive into how to manage your habits. I've already implement a great deal of the book before I finished it.

Loved it.

Not more of the same

I've followed James Clear's work for a long time and was reluctant to buy the audiobook thinking I already knew all of this. Whilst I did know most of what he was going to say he delivers the material beautifully, really bringing the topic to life and adding new context. Frankly I'm likely to grab the print version too.

Very practical guide

The advice in this book is clear, concise and practical. Build the habits you've always wanted by following the advice herein, which is doled out in short bitesize chapters, each with its own summary. Clear reads his own book quite well so I can recommend the Audible version.

Incredible take on habits

I’ve read many books on personal development and this is hands down the best of the lot. I’ve never read a book so clearly constructed in terms of the workings of human behaviour combined with genuinely actionable takeaways. This covers easily manageable steps to address habit formation in literally any aspect of your life. I happened to be in a personal funk at the time of reading this and going through the motion stage of addressing the things I was struggling with (ironically reading lots of books but not doing anything with the knowledge) This book has given me a plan of action, a framework to build out the habits and identity I aspire to.

A Wonderful Life Changer

James Clear's writing and narration of Atomic habis is easy to follow and a joy to learn from.
With real world examples from all areas of life, interesting stories from famous public figures and science to back up the habit forming and breaking styles he writes about, it is a must read.

Really practical advice I’m now using

I read a lot of business / personal development books and some of them are very much hit and miss. This one is a diamond in that rough. Really clear idea really clearly described with some very practical suggestions on how to implement. I’ve actually gone and bought the physical book too so I can refer to it over and over. Excellent book.

Practical Ideas

James gives a lot of good practical ideas of how to form good habits and stop bad ones. The ideas are well explained and justified. I have already applied some of the book and it even validated somethings I was already doing.
