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.

Not more of the same

I've followed James Clear's work for a long time and was reluctant to buy the audiobook thinking I already knew all of this. Whilst I did know most of what he was going to say he delivers the material beautifully, really bringing the topic to life and adding new context. Frankly I'm likely to grab the print version too.

Very practical guide

The advice in this book is clear, concise and practical. Build the habits you've always wanted by following the advice herein, which is doled out in short bitesize chapters, each with its own summary. Clear reads his own book quite well so I can recommend the Audible version.

I didn't think there was much more I could learn about forming good habits and improving my life , but James Clear managed to incorporate a couple of OMG moments in this book for me, as well as a lot of practical advice.

Straight forward, practical and totally CLEAR!

One of the few self improvement books I would recommend. No gimmicks. Just practical strategies to develop and improve in the ways you've always wanted to. The narrator (the author) was excellent - his voice is very easy on the ear! Also, the supporting media downloads are the most generous I've seen with an audiobook.

Obvious but not so obvious -a must read / listen to book

The suggestion within the book are obvious- once you hear them, but most of the time we think too far in front.
James takes each area and gives suggestions for change in bite size chunks.
Motivational.
One of the best books I have read/ heard this year.
Completed the book within 2 days as wanted to find out more- difficult to put the book down.
Lots of tips on how to get motivated and make changes in life, with real life examples.
James looks at the psychology of behaviour and gets it!! He clearly explains why we do - or don't do things and advises on how to make the changes.
Highly recommended book
