Description

In The Power of Habit, award-winning New York Times business reporter Charles Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. With penetrating intelligence and an ability to distil vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives, Duhigg brings to life a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential for transformation. Along the way we learn why some people and companies struggle to change, despite years of trying, while others seem to remake themselves overnight. We visit laboratories where neuroscientists explore how habits work and where, exactly, they reside in our brains. We discover how the right habits were crucial to the success of Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, and civil-rights hero Martin Luther King, Jr. We go inside Procter & Gamble, Target superstores, Rick Warren's Saddleback Church, NFL locker rooms, and the nation's largest hospitals and see how implementing so-called keystone habits can earn billions and mean the difference between failure and success, life and death.

At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren't destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

Great insights to start gaining control

Though the book might be a bit long in its illustrative stories the author clearly explains how habits actually work at a personal, social, company or institutional level and give practical advice on where to start.

Good overall

Overall a good book. Only thing I didn't like much is that the book dedicate too much space to concrete examples of habits (real people stories) and how they affect people's life, and not enough space on reflection/investigation of the core concepts.

Contenu assez inégal dans la durée

La première moitié du livre est très bien avec l'identification d'une habitude, son mécanisme , comment la déconstruire ou la mettre en place.
La seconde moitié parle davantage de fait de société, de jeu et autres éléments pour étayer le fonctionnement de l'homme par ses habitudes mais les descriptions des situations sont trop longues et ne laissent pas de place aux explications neuro scientifiques .

A bit forced

Duhigg has an idea - that habit is an important force in our lives and that we can change our habits with effort - and he has a lot of interesting stories - about Paul Ryan and Alcoa, Starbucks, compulsive gambling, sleepwalking - and he spends the book trying to put them into a coherent theory. For me this doesn't quite work, but I found the book quite entertaining anyway.

Compréhension globale des mécanismes en jeu

Livre informatif plus sur les habitudes collectives ( ex: target, marketing, entreprises) que individuelles ( ex: addictions, dépression ). Compréhension globale des mécanismes et 30 min à la fin sur son propre exemple et mise en pratique ( arrêter de manger des cookies ). Lecture agréable, vivante, pas ennuyante. Un bon livre globalement.

I want more

Where does The Power of Habit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

it is probably in the top 10%

Any additional comments?

The book is such a tease!! hold on, it is probably not fair to say that. the book is really valuable it offers great insight into the mind and how it works, into how habits form. but I need more.

1) there is so much around us that take advantage of how habits form, in a way that is sometimes (in my view) unethical. it makes me question a lot of the marketing that takes place. also made me wonder who has access to my habits and how do they use it. SCARY

2) the book offers no recipe for change. it tells you change is possible, it tells you the ingredients of the habit which can be potentially used for affecting change but it still leaves you wondering how to portion out the ingredients. not intentionally but just because of the nature of habit and the nature of individuals and how divers they are. it makes me want more.

Only stories, no evidence

This book is from beginning to the end an example for all kind of cognitive fallacies and biases.

Don't get me wrong:
I believe that most of the author's hypotheses are true. But, the author does a very poor job of showing convincing evidence for his hypotheses.

You encounter instead hindsight bias, availability bias, non-sequiturs and anecdotal evidence.

For example, the author gives several examples of success stories, like "CEO "x" was very successful. CEO "x" used to do "y". Therefore, doing "y" is the reason why CEO "x" was successful. "

What about all the other CEOs who did "y" but weren't successful?
What else did CEO "x" do? Maybe one of THOSE things also contributed to the success as well?

I found myself repeatedly saying: "You cannot conclude that from what you just told me!"

Only few examples are given, where a scientific approach and unbiased logic were used.


I also think, that some anecdotes lighten up the flow of a non-fiction-book.
But an entire book full of anecdotes?

Furthermore, most of the stories are soooo tedious. E.g. I had to fast forward the story about this coach guy....

Also, I found the narrator a little bit annoying: in my opinion there was too much over-emphasizing and dramatization.

Over all, I regret the time for listening to this book.

I give two stars instead of just one star, because the hypotheses shown in this book are very interesting.

Truly Life Changing

Any additional comments?

If you're reading this then chances are, you want to change something in your life. I've read self help books for years, some good, many terrible. This book stands head and shoulders above them all because the core concept of the book is a prerequisite for any other self help book to work.

In my opinion, anyone can write a self help book full of useful tips. You know the ones - "start with your outcome in mind, set goals, seek the advice of mentors, exercise in the morning, blah blah blah". Nothing wrong with any of that advice ..... other than the fact that so few people have the ability to follow it.

This book is the missing foundation. It's the platform that once in place will provide you the means to make successes of all the other self-help books out there (if you still need them that is).

And one more thing. Duhigg's methodology isn't really 'his' methodology. It relies on current research surrounding the triggers and rewards that make us do the things we do. It's refreshing to read a self-help book like this; one where the author forms his conclusions from empirical research instead of the all too frequent self help author who wakes us one day and writes a book about how much better our lives would be if we were self-disciplined.

Great book - but forcefully long

Pros: the content and hints are life changing. Gives fresh impulses to overthink “habits”.

Cons: You don’t really have to read it complete. The first chapters, like 3/5 of the book, is enough to get the point.

Conclusion: would totally recommend

Empowering

I am glad that I finished this book. I have a better grasp and understanding of the significance of habits. this is quite empowering because I have the tools to understand my own habits and those of others. where i am concerned, I am in a better position to manage my own habits and to manage counterproductive behaviour. I can also use this information to try to support other people that I come across to appreciate the significance of habits and how to approach acquiring better habits.

Essential reading for ... everyone

If you could sum up The Power of Habit in three words, what would they be?

How to change

Who was your favorite character and why?

EP. The realisation that habits are performed without the brain, or at least memory and reason, being involved, is scary! EP encouraged me to get my whole brain involved in every moment of my life.

What does Mike Chamberlain bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Good intonation, good pace, calming tones when appropriate but also voice variation and excitement at the right moments. Well read, sir.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Habits can be changed by getting your brain involved. Understand the interaction between cue, craving, routine and reward. Well explained and illustrated.

Any additional comments?

I wish I had read (or listened to) this book long ago. I recommend this rather highly to parents, grandparents, managers, leaders, coaches, spouses. Actually, to everyone interested in living a purposeful life.

One of the Best Books I've Read.

I keep this book and I go back to it every now and then, especially whenever I feel I'm losing control of any habits. It's a great book.

A book on football history...

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Die Theorie der habit formation und changing habits ist absolut faszinierend, dieses Buch trägt jedoch nicht wirklich zu neuen Einsichten bei. Anstatt sich mehr auf den wissenschaftlichen Hintergrund zu fokusieren - was das Buch vermutlich um mindestens 50% gekürzt hätte - gibt es endlose Beschreibungen von Spielzügen in Football Spielen, die absolut nichts mit habit formation/changing habits zu tun haben. (Offenbar ist der Autor ein Fan der Football Geschichte. Ich bin keiner, daher waren diese Passagen extrem mühsam und unnötige Zeitverschwendung.)

Irgendwie kam der Autor leider auch nicht "in die Gänge". Das Buch ist holprig, man hat das Gefühl, dass einfach nichts weiter geht. Gespannt wartet man darauf, dass endlich die Gründer hinter Gewohnheiten beleuchtet werden, leider durchwegs vergeblich. Anstatt dessen bekommt man die Geschichte der Katzenbesitzerin, die den Katzengestank in ihrem Haus nicht riechen konnte...

Leider war auch die Auswahl des Sprechers für ein "Sachbuch" ein totaler Fehlgriff. Chamberlain wäre vermutlich gut eingesetzt, wenn es sich hierbei um einen Fantasy oder Fiction Roman handeln würde. Er bemüht sich sehr, theatralisch zu sein - was bei einem Buch wie diesem jedoch eher fehl am Platz ist, und bereits nach kurzer Zeit recht nervtötend ist.

Alles in allem muss ich sagen, dass ich mir im Laufe dieses Buches mehrmals überlegt habe, die Widergabe einfach zu beenden. Was mich am Ende gehalten hat, war die Hoffnung, dass ich am Ende doch wertvolle Einsichten erlangen könnte - eine Hoffnung, die sich am Ende leider als vergebens herausgestellt hat.

Interesantes Buch mit Erkenntnisgewinn

Dieses Buch stand schon länger auf meiner Liste. Die Fallbeispiele sind aufschlussreich und erläutern die Bedeutung von Gewohnheiten. Am Ende gibt es noch eine Zusammenfassung, was beachtet werden sollte, wenn man die eigenen Gewohnheiten ändern möchte. Das Buch lässt sich auf alle Lebenslagen ausweiten, das hat mir besonders gefallen.
