The Power of Habit

CHARACTERS The Power of Habit Charles Duhigg Ñ 7 REVIEW REVIEW ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ñ Charles Duhigg OVER 60 WEEKS ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LISTWith a new Afterword by the author In The Power of Habit Pulitzer Prize–winning business reporter Charles Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed Distilling vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives that take us from the boardrooms of Procter Gamble to sidelines of the NFL to the front lines of the civil rights movement Duhigg presents a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential At its core The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument The key to exercising regularly losing weight being productive and achieving success is understanding how habits work As Duhigg shows by harnessing this new science we can transform our businesses our communities and our lives NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NPR BESTSELLER • WASHINGTON POST BESTSELLER • LOS ANGELES TIMES BESTSELLER • USA TODAY BESTSEL. I just read Kelly McGonigal s The Willpower Instinct so I can t help but compare the twoDuhigg is an investigative reporter for the NY Times while McGonigal is a research psychologist and the differences come across in the writing McGonigal has a much better grasp on the research and how to apply it while Duhigg brings in stories that are entertaining but stretch his powers of interpretation His most annoying stylistic problem is that he breaks his stories up stopping one to start another and then coming back to it later I assume he s trying to add a sense of anticipation and drama to what should otherwise be a straightforward nonfiction book but I found it frustrating for him to be jumping back and forth for no good reasonI did enjoy many of his stories though The most interesting was in the section about social habits where he explains why the arrest of Rosa Parks was so influential while other black women at the same time had also refused to give up their seats but didn t spark much interest Parks had social ties across dozens of groups black and white and knew some people of influence The entire story of how Martin Luther King Jr became involved and all the people who got the bus boycott rolling is so fascinating to hear in detail

condescending narcissistic writing style A completely failed approach that depreciates the few good elements in it and insults the reader Ok one it stigmatizes the victims of gambling addictions or

agenda disguised as facts downed it to 2 Funny just now that I am thinking about it how each hard earned everyman bill has to be tracked down and taxed while letting people lose everything within hours the reasons for addictions or brainwashing for consumerism is absolutely no problem and Duhigg is completely ignoring the structures producing the problems because he is so busy with victim blaming and shaming Other authors stay objective or avoid such topics instead of superficially dealing with it to boost sales I am pretty sure that some of the concepts and ideas won t stand the test

CHARACTERS The Power of Habit Charles Duhigg Ñ 7 REVIEW REVIEW ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ñ Charles Duhigg Mination of how routine behaviors take hold and whether they are susceptible to change The stories that Duhigg has knitted together are all fascinating in their own right but take on an added dimension when wedded to his examination of habits” Associated Press  “There’s been a lot of research over the past several years about how our habits shape us and this work is beautifully described in the new book The Power of Habit” David Brooks The New York Times   “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   “I have been spinning like a top since reading The Power of Habit New York Times journalist Charles Duhigg’s fascinating best seller about how people businesses and organizations develop the positive routines that make them productive and happy” The Washington Pos. Nothing Succeeds Like Success A Case StudyHey Have you heard of Thomas Baker How about Carol Wright Chris Cameron Vineet Shaw Let us discuss BakerThomas Baker was an average joe but not without ambitions A few years ago acting on a tip Tom a competitive enough guy decided to take his life into his own hands What s he decided to pick up one Self help book and this time follow up thoroughly on it No holds barred He asked around looked in that wonderful site and finally decided on what seemed to him like the best out there right now The ratings seemed to be out of the world too The author in the intro even tries to reassure him against feeling overwhelmed by the excess of research in the book This is exactly the sort of help that Tom needed Tom read the book with great diligence He made notes and he made placards and he even bought magnets for his fridge and special sticky tapes for his mirrors He knew this could work He only had to believeHe changed his routines identified and included habit forming cues He created them he played around with them he even had some fun He was very inventive and imaginative The author would have commended the effort if he knew Tom decide that he would write to Duhigg about his success once it pays off A month passed Tom had made slight improvements but no major pay off seemed to be in the offing He chided himself for expecting windfalls He reminded himself that these things take time He kept at it 6 months now Even the minor gains he had made originally have fallen by the wayside now He had read the book thrice in this time trying to reaffirm his faith He was discouraged now but he kept at it 2 years The book is long forgotten But Tom had taken the trouble to document his experiences and had sent a detailed case study to the author He had reuested that it be included in the next edition of the book He wanted the author to include a chapter on failures on how it might not work for everyone He wanted a caveat a mild statement of warning that just because a book worth of case studies of success is presented there is no reason to expect that any approach no matter how good might work for everyone Humans would be fulfilling Asimovesue dreams if that were the case He thought this would add depth and realism to an otherwise fine bookHe did not even get an auto generated acknowledgment slip But that was ok he had discovered a new Gladwell book on another airport aisle Apparently it is not just habits that doesn t stick lessons don t either
