"In this fascinating book, Charles Duhigg reveals the myriad ways in which our habits shape our lives. Do you want to know why Febreze became a bestselling product? Or how the science of habits can be used to improve willpower? Read this book." (Jonah Lehrer)

"Once you read this book, you'll never look at yourself, your organisation, or your world quite the same way." (Daniel H. Pink)

"Absolutely fascinating." (Wired)

"This is a first-rate book - based on an impressive mass of research, written in a lively style and providing just the right balance of intellectual seriousness with practical advice on how to break our bad habits." (The Economist)

"Plenty of business books that try to tap into the scientific world manage to distil complicated research into readable prose. But few take the next step and become essential manuals for business and living. The Power of Habit is an exception." (Andrew Hill Financial Times)


Praise for "The Power of Habit"

"Charles Duhigg's thesis is powerful in its elegant simplicity: confront the root drivers of our behavior, accept them as intractable, and then channel those same cravings into productive patterns. His core insight is sharp, provocative, and useful."
--Jim Collins, #1 bestselling author of "Good to Great "and" Built to Last"
" "
""The Power of Habit" is not a magic pill but a thoroughly intriguing exploration of how habits function. Charles Duhigg expertly weaves fascinating new research and rich case studies into an intelligent model that is understandable, useful in a wide variety of contexts, and a flat-out great read. His chapter on 'keystone habits' alone would justify the book."
--David Allen, bestselling author of "Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity"

"Charles Duhigg masterfully combines cutting-edge research and captivating stories to reveal how habits shape our lives and how we can shape our habits. Once you read this book, you'll never look at yourself, your organization, or your world quite the same way."
--Daniel H. Pink, author of #1 "New York Times" bestselling "Drive" and "A Whole New Mind"

"William James once observed that ninety-nine percent of human activity is done out of mere habit. In this fascinating book, Charles Duhigg reveals why James was right, documenting the myriad ways in which our habits shape our lives. Do you want to know why Febreze became a bestselling product? Or how Tony Dungy gets the most out of his football players? Or how the science of habits can be used to improve willpower? Read this book."
--Jonah Lehrer, bestselling author of "Proust Was a Neuroscientist "and" How We Decide"

Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT
"For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice." -- Romans 7:19 (NKJV)

This book could have been more aptly titled, "How Can I Stop ________ ?"

The author's purpose seems to be making you more aware of your habitual behaviors, especially the ones that you probably wish you hadn't done just a short time later. Will this book help you to live without regret? No. But it will make you feel better equipped to try.

If you have read anything about neuroscience and habits, you are probably already more knowledgeable than you will be after reading The Power of Habit, which seems to be intended for those new to the subject who would like the simplest possible explanation. And it is a very clear and simple explanation. I admire people who can do that. It's beyond my personal skills.

So what will you learn? In many diagrams, you will see expressed the concept that when we act on cues (a "routine") that give us a reward, we form habits of doing the things that got us the reward the last time we acted on the cue. In other words, Pavlov rang the bell when he fed the dogs. After awhile, he could just ring the bell and the dogs would salivate because they associated the bell with food to soon come. Animal training is often based on the same approach, by providing food when a desired behavior occurs.

You'll also learn a little about how you can overcome such habits in a brief (too brief, to my taste) appendix:

(1)Identify the routine you habitually do.
(2)Experiment with different rewards to replace the one you don't want to seek any more.
(3)Isolate the cue that triggers the routine.
(4)Have a plan to act differently.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting yet repetitive 5. August 2012
Von BLehner
We all have our little habits, some of them most likely of the bad kind, and those are the ones we strive to overcome. If only it would be that simple. In his book The Power Of Habit Charles Duhigg approaches the subject of what habits are and how we can ultimately change them.
Written in an engaging style, with just the right balance of scientific fact and actual examples, you can tell straight away that the author has a journalistic background. This certainly pays off and pulled me right into this fascinating field of social sciences, or more precisely, human behavior.
As much as I enjoyed the first few chapters, it soon became clear that despite the different case studies of individuals, organizations, as well as societies, the core of each chapter was repeating itself over and over again, ultimately becoming redundant. The underlying message that habits cannot be eradicated, but must instead be replaced, and the connection between "cue", "routine" and "reward" haven't just been presented once or twice, but countless times, culminating in a guide to using the ideas presented in the book. You could practically skip the actual book and still get the gist by reading the appendix alone. As much as the narrative swept me along and the deliberations proved to be insightful, I felt that the book in its entirety has been unnecessarily blown up by its length.
In short: Interesting yet repetitive study on habits and how to change them!

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Random House. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Worst book ever. 8. Juni 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
"The Power of Habit" is probably the worst book I've ever read. I've never read a book containig so much nonsensical repetition and redundancy and so much simplistic pseudo-science in my entire life. The book reminds me of the importance of examining an author's reputation before buying a book. He or she should probably at least have a PhD in his or her field when writing on a topic like neuroscience. The author won a Pulitzer prize? That's hilarious, because his books reads like the homework of a twelve-year-old. Almost 400 pages of incoherent, pseudo-scientific ramblings. The success of this book can only be explained by the fact that it was promoted by The New York Times, where the author works as a journalist.

Interessantes Buch über Gewohnheiten wie sie enstehen wie man sie bearbeiten kann und welche Auswirkungen diese haben wenn sie schlechter natur sind. Der Wille ist am Ende stärker als jede Gewonheit.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great book 20. März 2014
Von Franek
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is an interesting book, it investigates the psychology of habits in depth, but in a way that is easy to read. In fact i read this book within five days.
I recommend it to anybody who is interested in how habits work and perhaps want to adjust their own.

Duhigg explains how to change habits on a personal or organizational/ society level by using a lot of examples. The idea is quite simple and well explained. Furthermore, the stories motivate to take action.

After reading this book you understand how to change your habits and how to keep your new habits!
