Product description

Review

"In this fascinating book, Charles Duhigg reveals the myriad ways in which our habits shape our lives. Do you want to know why Febreze became a bestselling product? Or how the science of habits can be used to improve willpower? Read this book." (Jonah Lehrer)

"Once you read this book, you’ll never look at yourself, your organisation, or your world quite the same way." (Daniel H. Pink)

"Absolutely fascinating." (Wired)

"This is a first-rate book – based on an impressive mass of research, written in a lively style and providing just the right balance of intellectual seriousness with practical advice on how to break our bad habits." (The Economist)

"Plenty of business books that try to tap into the scientific world manage to distil complicated research into readable prose. But few take the next step and become essential manuals for business and living. The Power of Habit is an exception." (Andrew Hill Financial Times)

The book is divided into 3 sections..related to 1.individual..2..corporates. 3.. Societies..book discusses how habits are formed and how powerful they are in these 3 categories...author explains with sell researched case studies in all 3 categories...it explains the science of habit formation ..personally I feel author should have focussed more on habit formation at the personal level but still book is a good read with 290 pages...it's a good read for people interested in psychology and in habit formation..

It took a bit longer than usual to complete this book because I left it many times in between and started reading another one. But finally I completed it and completely overwhelmed by the content and the research done by the author. Charles Duhigg excellently​ describe the habit pattern of one i.e Habit loop 1. Identify the routine 2. Experiment with rewards 3. Isolate the cue 4. Have a plan. He put some light on the the things that we are using unconsciously from so many years not knowing that marketers are constantly playing with us and injecting there products into our habit routine. Everything has a pattern and by observing pattern We can even tell that girl conceived for the first time. Amazing Power of Habit..A must read. Fast delivery by Amazon.

While I don't like writing short reviews, I this case I think it would suffice. This is a potentially life changing book. The best thing it did to me was made me realize that there are things that we often attribute to an individual's decisions that are actually the result of their habits. You often don't know that malice that plagues you. This book can help you realize your habits and potentially modify them. This is also a great book for people with an interest in psychology, it's also great for those in marketing. In fact it's really difficult to summarize the kinds of people this might be great for, so you might as well read it. You most likely belong to the category.

Charles Duhigg keeps you hooked as he deftly moves from example to example, across data science, medicine, pop music & more. The book leaves you with a deeper understanding of the human mind and a will to use this new knowledge to carve a better version of yourself.

To much focus on society and organisations habits,less emphasis on individuals habits.
Would have been good if focus was individuals habits
