Book Review: The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg

The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business manages to balance both a challenging point of view – you are responsible for your habits, and therefore are responsible for everything that happens to you – without being preachy or pessimistic.

Each section largely centers around a single case study (with illustrative anecdotes and data from other sources) that clearly demonstrates the point being made… while managing to not lecture or talk down to the reader. The case studies are compellingly written and researched, making the book not just fascinating, but fun to read.
