Charles Duhigg, an award-winning business reporter, brings us to the cutting edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they may be modified in The Power of Habit. Duhigg delivers a whole new perspective of human nature and its possibilities by distilling massive amounts of information into compelling narratives that take us from the boardrooms of Procter & Gamble to the sidelines of the NFL to the front lines of the civil rights struggle. The Power of Habit is built on an energizing argument: understanding how habits work is the key to exercising regularly, losing weight, becoming more productive, and attaining success. As Duhigg demonstrates, we can improve our businesses, communities, and lives by embracing this new science.
