“THE POWER OF HABIT – Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business”
By Charles Duhigg

From JZ Knight:
“This book should be required reading for everyone and to thoughtfully consider adopting Duhigg’s recommendations to ‘transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.’”

From the Publisher:
“In The Power of Habit, award-winning New York Times business reporter Charles Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. With penetrating intelligence and an ability to distill vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives, Duhigg brings to life a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential for transformation.”

“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 understanding how habits work.

Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives,” quoting the book’s publisher, Random House.
