Reviewer's comment:

A book that I have re-read many times, which looks at discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. The examples that the author used to explain the habits in the book were relatable and perfect, I use many of these stories in my marketing company when chatting about buyer habits. Must read.

Pros

Relatable to everyone!

A relatively simple read, this book discusses how companies and people build habits, and the power of habits. There werent too many tangible "how-to" while would have been more beneficial to the reader, however is easily interprited.

Reviewer's comment:

This book has been one of the most influential books in my life. A well written masterpiece that enables the reader to better understand the forces that drive them to act in behave i particular ways, and how to change them. It can definitely be improved with a little more detail on how to apply what you learn from this book. But if it did have those extras, it would become a text book. I found each story is told with a fictional style which makes the information easy to digest, easy to relate to and very informative without becoming a group of excerpts from psychological studies. The perfect entry for anyone wanting to more about the habits that control their actions and how to change them.

Pros

Well written and easy to digest

Bursting with information that can be understood and applied

It hits every area of your life. Personal, family, work, society, government
