Original Book Summary Overview
"The Power of Habit" by Charles Duhigg puts the power of behavior change in the hands of the reader. The curtain is pulled back on the origin, structure, and purpose of the habits that keep us, our companies, and our society functioning smoothly.
Using examples from some of the most prodigious, profitable, and well-known institutions in the modern era, Duhigg explains our habits in an easy to digest and relatable format. How thoroughly we depend on our habits can be traced back to our evolution. Our habits are instincts that have evolved throughout time to dictate our relationships, our behaviors, and the way we do business. But understanding the nature of our habits is just the beginning. Once we know how our habits are built, we can work to modify them to our benefit. This behavioral empowerment is at the core of "The Power of Habit."
