"Sharp, provocative, and useful."--Jim Collins "Few [books] become essential manuals for business and living. "The Power of Habit "is an exception. Charles Duhigg not only explains how habits are formed but how to kick bad ones and hang on to the good."--"Financial Times" "A flat-out great read."--David Allen, bestselling author of "Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity"" " "You'll never look at yourself, your organization, or your world quite the same way."--Daniel H. Pink, bestselling author of "Drive "and" A Whole New Mind" "Entertaining . . . enjoyable . . . fascinating . . . a serious look at the science of habit formation and change."--"The New York Times Book Review" "Cue: see cover.

According to Duhigg (investigative reporter, New York Times), if people can understand how behaviors became habits, they can restructure those patterns in more constructive ways. He presents information on habit formation and change from academic studies, interviews with scientists and executives, and research conducted in dozens of companies. Three sections deal with the neurology of habit formation in individuals, the habits of successful companies and organizations, and the habits of societies and tough ethical issues. Duhigg offers a fascinating analysis for the college-educated reader. [See Prepub Alert, 9/11/11.] (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
