NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - For anyone looking to rebuild old habits, form new ones, or start all over, this instant classic "masterfully combines cutting-edge research and captivating stories to reveal how habits shape our lives and how we can shape our habits" (Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive).

Named One of the Best Books of the Year by The Wall Street Journal and Financial Times

In The Power of Habit, award-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 the 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 more 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.
