Book Review: The Power Of Habit by Charles Duhigg

Have you ever picked up a book that you simply couldn’t put back down again? If not then make this your first, and if so then add this to your tally. Author James Duhigg delivers an insightful and educational read through The Power of Habit.

Many books have been written before on this transformative topic. Despite its popularity, the subject of habits remains one that the vast majority know relatively so little about, and yet it’s probably the single most powerful force driving human behavior.

In the first chapter, the author introduces the basics of habits. This brief introduction perfectly sets up the remainder of the book which succeeds in illustrating the influence of habits in both positive and negative scenarios.

What makes this an enthralling read are the myriad of case studies. Not only are the stories captivating but they also illustrate the power of habit at both an individual and not so individual scale.
