Publisher's Summary

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.

In this groundbreaking book, Clears reveals exactly how these minuscule changes can grow into such life-altering outcomes. He uncovers a handful of simple life hacks (the forgotten art of Habit Stacking, the unexpected power of the Two Minute Rule or the trick to entering the Goldilocks Zone) and delves into cutting-edge psychology and neuroscience to explain why they matter. Along the way, he tells inspiring stories of Olympic gold medalists, leading CEOs and distinguished scientists who have used the science of tiny habits to stay productive, motivated and happy. 

These small changes will have a revolutionary effect on your career, your relationships and your life.

Just what I needed to start the year with.

I liked it because of how simple straightforward and practical it was. I'll be testing out James Clear's ideas over the course of this year to see what happens.

Great book, highly recommended

I enjoy how the author, James Clear, put his own experience in the centre of the book and explains how he discovered the power of habits for himself. Very down to earth and a pleasure to read! The content is very digestible too.

A wonderful book

The book is written with real clarity. It makes a good case for why the technique suggested work. And the book is packed with techniques.

The work is a deep dive into how to manage your habits. I've already implement a great deal of the book before I finished it.

Loved it.
