“The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do, and How to Change” is a bestselling book written by Charles Duhigg. Published in 2012, the book delves into the science of habits and explores why habits form, how they influence our lives, and how they can be changed.

Duhigg’s book is structured around the idea that habits are a fundamental part of human behavior and that understanding them can be a key to personal and societal transformation. The book is divided into three parts:

1. The Habits of Individuals: This section explores the neurological and psychological mechanisms behind habit formation in individuals. Duhigg introduces the habit loop, which consists of cue, routine, and reward, and explains how understanding and manipulating this loop can help people change their habits.

2. The Habits of Successful Organizations: Duhigg discusses how habits play a crucial role in organizational success and provides examples from businesses, sports teams, and other institutions. He illustrates how identifying and modifying key organizational habits can lead to significant improvements.

3. The Habits of Societies: The final part of the book delves into societal habits and the role of habits in large-scale societal changes, such as civil rights movements and public health campaigns.

“The Power of Habit” combines scientific research, case studies, and personal anecdotes to provide insights into how habits work and how they can be transformed. The book has been praised for its engaging storytelling and practical advice on how to change habits. It has had a significant impact on self-help literature and has been widely read and discussed by individuals interested in personal development and behavior change.

  1. Nabin AK (Verified Purchase)

    The book was very confirming for me. It gave me hope and more proof that change can, and will happen. Crappy habits can be changed, and new, better habits can be formed. There isn’t a specific target market defined. The book is for anyone trying become better. Anyone trying to make a change in their life, trying stop a thing, or start one.

  2. Vicky Kumar (Verified Purchase)

    Amazing combination of reality, truth and just plain great stories! The book is packed with information that is helpful to any human for use in personal life or in business or any other arena.

    This book really opened my eyes to all my daily habits. I consciously observe why I do things at certain times, and what cues makes me do those things. Now if i want to get into a study mode, I know I have to drink a cup of coffee, and sit at my kitchen table. If I want to get into exercise mode, I turn on my favorite TV show and curl my weights. The Power of Habit, has the power to change the way your view on life and carrying out your day to day activities.

  4. Arun Prabhu Sudhakaran (Verified Purchase)

    If you are fascinated by human behaviour, and, by extension, your own, and you’ve always wondered about the more primitive aspects of our brains that have a gripping influence on our lives, this book will no doubt be a great addition to your bookshelf.

  5. Dipak Khamaru (Verified Purchase)

    This book helps us understand how habits are formed and how we can use them to our benefit, change them when we need to and replace them when necessary. Duhigg does warn the reader that although we understand the way habits are made and altered it is not always easy to do it. Determining the actual cue for example can take some experimentation and work.
