      I just read Kelly McGonigal s The Willpower Instinct , so I can t help but compare the two.Duhigg is an investigative reporter for the NY Times, while McGonigal is a research psychologist, and the differences come across in the writing McGonigal has a much better grasp on the research and how to apply it, while Duhigg brings in stories that are entertaining but stretch his powers of interpretation His most annoying stylistic problem is that he breaks his stories up, stopping one to start another [...]

      This is great book, and you need to read it How is that for a definitive opening line The reason it s such a good book is because it uses research to explain how habits are formed and changed Everyone knows someone who was out of shape, or was a smoker, and then in what appeared as if almost overnight, changed themselves in a short period of time How did they do that They formed new habits and changed old ones, that s how.Do something enough and it becomes a habit, good or bad This is explained [...]

      Read this because of fascinating NYT magazine excerpt on how Target tracks our buying habits The rest of the book is not as compelling anecdotes sometimes don t support particular arguments he s attempting to illustrate the Hey Ya examples being the most egregious , and his section on how social movements occur is weak and unconvincing, and not really about habits, per se Style and structure were often clunky, and the book seems a bit muddled as its ultimate purpose I dunno, I guess I was expect [...]

      This may be a crappy review since its going up via iPhone Sorry First caveat I work in research A big part of my job is creating these habit loops and seeing if they can be altered or enhanced via medication Second caveat I m a nerd and love journal articles, scientific writing, and technical reading, even off the job.Third caveat I only got to chapter eight I honestly don t know what I was expecting By far and large, when there s big buzz about a book I inevitably dislike it with very few excep [...]

      I need to start with the obvious this guy is one of those writers One of those writers that make you want to track him down and hurt him And not just him, maybe even his pets too He assumes you are as thick as dog shit and that you won t get what it is he is talking about unless he makes it painfully PAINFULLY clear He has missed his calling He really should have gone into the self help book market let s face it, assuming your readers are dumb in that market is just responding to reality You mig [...]

      I remember reading a story by the famous Malayalam writer Padmarajan called Oru Sameepakala Durantham A Tragedy of Recent Times It tells of a housing colony in Kerala, bitten by the exercise bug in the early eighties Someone gets up before sunrise and starts jogging Soon, he is joined by and people until the whole colony is out running, every day This leaves the houses unattended which comes to the notice of a group of thieves and they conduct a spate of early morning robberies The people of t [...]

      Judging from the prologue of The Power of Habit Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business, the first thing necessary in modifying one s behavior is to note the actual components of that behavior The author cites a visit with a military officer in charge of normalizing a village Kufa in Iraq The officer started by observing video of how riots began and noticed that the trouble usually broke out after people had milled around for a while and food trucks and spectators arrived He changed the behavi [...]

      This long winded book explains how habits form in individuals, organizations, and social groups Despite the intriguing premise, the verbose anecdotes left me screaming, I get the point already A better book or article would have resulted from taking the appendix a short, practical guide to changing a habit and adding some of the psychological research and a few brief examples After I wrote this review, I discovered Charles Duhigg s New York Times article, which is basically what I described The [...]

      Our local book club read this a few years ago I thought I had a reviewrhaps it disappeared Maybe it s still here I saw a friend currently reading it I thought this book explained some useful information Talked about success through good habits organizational skills addictions habits hard to break and how to create new ones lots of repetition some basic common sense but also good tidbits and even validation in some areas The personal stories of people s lives were interesting and my favorite part [...]

      Enjoyable The book presents a framework of understanding how habits work, and serves as a guide to show how to change habits Once you choose who you want to be, believe you want to change, and it becomes real Visualize the kind of person you would like to become, focus on one habit you would potentially develop, and transform that into what would become natural requiring no effort or thinking To modify a habit, you must decide to change it You must consciously accept the hard work of identifying [...]

      This was an interesting collection of research about habits and routines The book felt Gladwellian in that it combined a variety of case studies while arguing a central theme, just as Malcolm Gladwell tends to do in his books I think my favorite sections were the ones on Starbucks training programs, Procter Gamble s attempts to market Febreze, the safety record at Alcoa, the applications of Hit Song Science, and the historic Montgomery bus boycott of 1955 The overall theme is about how habits sh [...]

      How do some of us wake up for 6 a.m jogs every day What leads people to develop gambling addictions Why do people brush their teeth every day while never remembering to wear sunscreen Charles Duhigg answers these questions and in The Power of Habit, a well researched book on what motivates us to make the decisions we do in everyday life and in business.Duhigg s background as a reporter shows in this book He does a good job of stringing together a wide variety of topics to fit his thesis that re [...]

    17. Scott says:

      Duhigg s Power of Habit offered a staggering statistic about our lives 40% of what we do is habitual 40 percent That means that a huge majority of what we do in our lives is practically unconscious and habitually helping us progress or digress The major takeaways for me include two main insights First, identifying your habit s cues and rewards gives one understanding of why we do what we do For example, when analyzing my habit of running, there are specific cues and rewards that both initiate an [...]

      I thought this would be a self help book on tips of how to improve habits and it is much than that The author analyzes habits on different levels such as in individuals, organizations, businesses and societies He uses real life examples and historic events to describe behavioral habits Since the book was not what I expected I started getting distracted 20% in but pulled through to the end About half way of listening to the audiobook I started to do the review of the book I was expecting but did [...]

      Non esistono organizzazioni prive di abitudini istituzionali Esistono luoghi dove le abitudini vengono deliberatamente studiate e altri dove invece si formano spontaneamente, spesso sulla rivalit e la paura Ogni mattina ti alzi ti lavi e bevi un caff La solita strada per recarti al lavoro, le solite facce che riempiono le tue giornate.Detta cos la nostra vita di una tristezza incredibile ma la routine non solo ci d sicurezza ma ci identifica.Charles Duhigg giornalista delNew York Timesche vanta [...]

    24. Yousif Al Zeera says:

      This book delves into some science behind the notion of habits It hands out the scientific process of changing habits In between, there are interesting stories of how individuals, societies and companies can make the best use out of their habits or other people s habits.

      Charles Duhigg has three fascinating half books here They re all joined by the theme of habits He speaks of habits from a personal perspective Then he talks about business habits, switching from cognitive psychology to organizational psychology And finally, he talks about sociology What unifying pattern do these three have That same old model I learned back in college in 1991 The idea of cues, actions, and rewards is throughout this book It s not very new nor very strong in fact, Duhigg mentions [...]

    27. Joe Soltzberg says:

      A very good book about habit formation My favorite parts were the various stories and anecdotes the author provided for each lesson about habits The book is fairly cohesive and my only complaint is that the how to use this book section at the end is a bit too simple and doesn t encompass the ideas in every chapter such as incorporating keystone habits, etc Nonetheless, definitely worth a read I didn t get this book to try and change any of my habits, but still learned a ton Here s what you need [...]

    29. Andy says:

      This book claims to explain how new science can help us stop bad habits The advice on habit change ultimately comes down to the appendix with the author s personal anecdote about trying to lose weight The conclusion is obvious and it s not science it s just some dude s story People looking for books on using increased awareness of thought loops to change habits would be better served reading something about cognitive therapy or meditation.Much of what he is talking about with automatic responses [...]
