Publisher's Summary

This is a book summary of The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg. Get more book summaries at getflashnotes.com

Original book description:

In The Power of Habit, Pulitzer Prize-winning business reporter Charles Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. Distilling vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives that take us from the boardrooms of Procter & Gamble to sidelines of the NFL to the front lines of the civil rights movement, Duhigg presents a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential. At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, being more productive, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. As Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

Thank you for saving a lot of time for me. i got needed ideas from the book without unnecessary ( and a bit annoying) stories that original author added to book in some reason. Worth the money i spend on this summary.

Save Yourself a Few Weeks

I started the full audiobook for this title, and the excessive storytelling caused me to return it. I got about 3 hours into the book and 2 hours and 45 minutes of it were stories. This summary gives you all of the actionable steps from the book in half an hour.

just the right about of information

Would you listen to The Power of Habit, by Charles Duhigg: Book Summary again? Why?

I sort of have the gist of this information, from my own research. I did want a good overview of the book. That's what this book did and it did it well.

Dean Bokhari is an excellent job narrator.

Dean does a great job of narrating this phenomenal and ground breaking book into a well rounded abstract on the power of habit.

Very mediocre narration.

Poor narration puts you off. The book summary was just about one message over 30 mins..wonder what the whole book is all about.

Even $3 is too much for this

Thanks God I didnt buy the original book. All it was is common sense. You have a habit, you can change it if you reward yourself doing something different. Duh. Once he explains that instead of sleeping in and getting extra sleep as a reward, wake up and go to the gym and get a chocolate shake as a reward for it. But what if I want to sleep in and get a shake after I wake up and get 2 rewards ? How does o e get over that ? I was looking an answer for how to change my habit and this book is no answer for that.
