Description

In the international best seller The Power of Habit, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Charles Duhigg explained why we do what we do. In Smarter Faster Better, he applies the same relentless curiosity, rigorous reporting and rich storytelling to explain how we can get better at the things we do. The result is a groundbreaking exploration of the science of productivity.

A group of data scientists at Google embark on a four-year study of how the best teams function and find that how a group interacts is much more important than who is in the group.

A marine corps general, faced with low morale among recruits, reimagines boot camp - and discovers that instilling a 'bias toward action' can turn even the most directionless teenagers into self-motivating achievers.

The filmmakers behind Disney's Frozen are on the brink of catastrophe - until they shake up their team in just the right way, spurring a creative breakthrough that leads to one of the highest-grossing movies of all time.

What do these people have in common? They know that productivity relies on making certain choices. The way we frame our daily decisions; the big ambitions we embrace and the easy goals we ignore; the cultures we establish as leaders to drive innovation: these are the things that separate the merely busy from the genuinely productive.

At the core of Smarter Faster Better are eight key concepts - from motivation and goal setting to focus and decision making - that explain why some people and companies get so much done. Drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience, psychology and behavioural eco­nomics - as well as the experiences of CEOs, educational reformers, four-star generals, airplane pilots and Broadway songwriters - this painstakingly researched book explains that the most productive people, companies and organizations don't merely act differently.

They view the world, and their choices, in profoundly different ways.

Well Summed Up Principles

The book seems to sum up productivity and work principles. Perhaps nothing new, but all in one place with some captivating stories around it. I can only recommend.

Worth a read and needs a second read

This book is definitely worth a read, and may take a second and third read to fully embrace the tools and wisdom it contains.

For me, the last chapter should have been the first chapter, OR at the very least, the author should have offered the reader the option to first read the very last chapter and then start reading the book from the front.

Overall, I enjoyed the book, AND from the time to time the case studies were a bit drawn out. It would be an "even better if" if Duhigg could give very clear and specific tools and suggestions at the end of each chapter, as he did at the end of the book.

I love the personal style of Duhigg's writing and his passion for his subject matter is very admirable. The manner in which he shares his humanity so richly in the final chapter is wonderful. I am burning to read his next book.

Very practical and engaging from the word Go.

I've listened to it for a second time. My first time listen proved that I was a different person compared to this second one. Looking forward to a third listen.

A lot of stories with some real gems

A nice book and some very good insights and practical approaches around work and productivity. But filled with too widely knit stories and sometined difficult to connect. Overall a gid book.
