Review: The Power of Habit - Why We Do What We Do And How To Change It By: Charles Duhigg

The Power Of Habit: Why We Do What We Do In Life And BusinessThe Power Of Habit: Why We Do What We Do In Life And Business by Charles Duhigg
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There is a science to our individual behavior, a science of habit. Broken down into three sections the author delves deep into Individual Habits (which includes routine, the loop of habit, and choice vs. habit), The Habits of Successful Organizations (the breakdown of organizations and companies and what makes them great i.e. the reward, and the power of crisis), and The Habits of Societies (civil rights movement, and the neurology of free will).
Each section is easy to understand and even include some techniques to include into your daily regime. Since most people make resolutions and don't complete them or only hold on for so long - this is the perfect book to help make that change and have it stick.
