Description:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In The Power of Habit, award-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. With a new Afterword by the author NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BYThe Wall Street Journal * Financial Times "Sharp, provocative, and useful."--Jim Collins "Few [books] become essential manuals for business and living.
