Review

Amazon.com - Best 100 Books of 2012
Amazon.ca - Best 100 Books of 2012

The Power of Habit is an enjoyable book, and readers will find useful advice about how to change at least some of their bad habits — even if they want to keep their salt.”
The New York Times (editor’s choice)
 
“Reading the quirky anecdotes and the whizbang science of it all becomes habit-forming in itself. Cue: see cover. Routine: read book. Reward: Fully comprehend the art of manipulation.”
Bloomberg Businessweek

“[A]bsolutely fascinating . . . Really juicy, fascinating, sometimes confounding stuff here.”
Wired
 
“Fascinating.”
The Wall Street Journal
 
“Duhigg has a knack for distilling laboratory findings into accessible language. . . . The Power of Habit is a fascinating read.”
The Daily Beast

“Duhigg makes everything accessible and useable for habit-makers and habit-breakers alike. Much like a handful of potato chips, in fact, this book is hard to resist.”
—The Nashville Ledger

The Power of Habit is a good and educational read. . . . Duhigg doesn't preach, rather he invites you to learn—a much better approach.”
—Fortune
 
“Duhigg's writing is easy to consume and is sure to make you laugh. You'll forget that this non-fiction book has as many stats as your college psych textbook.”
—Huffington Post

“With penetrating intelligence and an ability to distill vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives, Charles brings to life a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential for transformation.”
—MarketWatch
