Random House presents the audiobook edition of Atomic Habits by James Clear, read by the author. A revolutionary system to get 1 percent better every day. People think when you want to change your life, you need to think big. But world-renowned habits expert James Clear has discovered another way. He knows that real change comes from the compound effect of hundreds of small decisions - doing two push-ups a day, waking up five minutes early or holding a single short phone call. He calls them atomic habits.

Fantastic book, but supplementary material is not Included in audible version of the book, and I could not find it on the author's website. Do I now have to listen again to the whole book, just so I can write down URL of each file he references?
Not happy.

This is the only money guide you'll ever need. That's a bold claim, given there are already thousands of finance books on the shelves. So what makes this one different? You'll get a step-by-step formula: open this account, then do this; call this person, and say this; invest money here and not there. All with a glass of wine in your hand.

Overly religious book. Why does it not say on the cover? I don't mind him referencing Bible once in a while, but he keeps doing it over and over and does not get to the point. Books sounds more like a Sunday bible study.
Also, author takes forever to get to the point of what he's trying to say. What is order? What is chaos? He continues on and on with analogies and allegories, for over 50 minutes on just those 2 things! I will definitely be returning this.

Excellent book with tips and tricks on how to live a happy and successful life. Many myths busted as well. Of the 5-6 books I own on this website, this one is the best. Buy it, you most certainly won't regret it.

Winner of the British Book Awards, Author of the Year, 2007.
Shortlisted for the British Book Awards, Book of the Year, 2007.
Shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize, 2007.
Winner of the Audiobook Download of the Year, 2007.

As the author of many classic works on science and philosophy, Richard Dawkins has always asserted the irrationality of belief in God and the grievous harm it has inflicted on society. He now focuses his fierce intellect exclusively on this subject, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

These are just some of the questions considered in an internationally acclaimed masterpiece by one of the world's greatest thinkers. It begins by reviewing the great theories of the cosmos, from Newton to Einstein, before delving into the secrets which still lie at the heart of space and time, from the big bang to black holes, via spiral galaxies and strong theory.
