Publisher's Summary

This is not the original book. This is a book summary of The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. In The Power of Habit, Charles Duhigg, award-winning business reporter for The New York Times, takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. By distilling vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives, Duhigg brings to light a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential for transformation.  

Along the way, we learn why some people and companies struggle to change, despite years of trying, while others seem to remake themselves overnight. We discover the neuroscience behind how habits work and, precisely, which parts of the brain they develop and reside within. We discover how the right habits were crucial to the successful promotion of Pepsodent to Tony Dungy who led his team to a Super Bowl win by changing one step in his players’ habit loop. We also learn how a large corporation managed to turned itself around by changing just one routine within the organization.  

At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is about understanding how habits work. By harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities and our lives.  

Here’s what you’ll learn about in this book summary of The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg:

  • Why the brain tries to make routines into habits.
  • How cravings create and power new habits.
  • How to apply the golden rule of habit change.
  • What “keystone habits” are and the importance of them in creating a new routine.

Perfect summary!

This is a great step-by-step, actionable process that is summed up neatly in 30 minutes. I like how the narrator sounds as if he really enjoys the material. Many narrators sound like robots reading a script, but this one sounds really enthusiastic about the book!
