This week’s staff pick is all about habits: what they really are, how they’re made, and how you can change yours for the better. Using examples that range from large-scale corporate marketing projects to the success of famous athletes, author Charles Duhigg demonstrates how profound a positive change of habit can be.



“In The Power of Habit, award-winning New York Times business reporter Charles Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. With penetrating intelligence and an ability to distill vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives, Duhigg brings to life a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential for transformation . . .

At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work.” Goodreads.com
