What an awesome book which explains habits, their development, formation, and replacement, written in a very engaging format filled with in-depth research and real life examples.
As writer points out, “All of our life is a mass of habits” where “more than 40% of actions people perform are habits”. Since this is the case, would it be helpful for us to know and understand how habits form, how we can manage them, and how we an overwrite them with new, possibly better or different habits, replacing old and bad habits? That is exactly what you will learn about in this great book.
Some of the points covered in the book are:
How habits form on the neurological level
Understanding habits of societies and successful organizations
How habits can be changed, once we understand how they work
The Habit Loop – How habits work (3-step loop)
How habits are formed
How our brain reacts when new habit emerges
Delicate nature of habits
How habits can be changed
Habits and how they shape our lives
How to create new habits – “How new habits can be cultivated and grown?”
Habit and “neurological cravings”
These and many other points and topics are discussed in great detail in this very engaging, interesting, and easy to read book. I am on my third round of reading it, and every time I do, I learn something new.
I highly recommend this book to everyone who is interested to understand how habits work, and what we can do to change our habits to help us live happier and productive lives
