Editorial reviews

James Clear’s best seller Atomic Habits sets out to prove that improving your life doesn’t have to mean making enormous changes. You can make real, important changes with small alterations in your routine—waking up five minutes early, or doing two push-ups a day. In fact, Clear states that there are only 10 simple steps you need to take in order to create remarkable change in your life.

Clear himself narrates the book and as a frequent podcaster and a guest on countless talk shows, his compelling voice makes his life lessons easy to digest. The tips and methods you’ll hear are paired with real life stories of Olympic athletes, business bigwigs and leading scientists, demonstrating how Clear’s advice has been put into action by real people — and how you can apply these methods to improve your own day-to-day.

Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

THE PHENOMENAL INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER - 1 MILLION COPIES SOLD.

Transform your life with tiny changes in behaviour, starting now.

People think that 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 ground-breaking 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.

Could literally have been condensed to like 20 pages

It’s a really interesting book.

There are some great concepts in here to make simple changes that can change your life.

Such a shame though it’s padded out by so much waffle. The author goes on about parts of the brain, psychology etc that frankly has nothing to do with the content. His tone is also very monotonous and so not very engaging.

He also mentions his website about 50000 times.

A good book, only just worth the audible credit.

University of Life

I’ve read this book and wanted to refresh my learning. This book is a wealth of knowledge on the how-to-say “pyramid” of change; not only for habits but what they can mean for your life. Structured through basics to expertise, explaining methods and results with the needed research. Providing basic methods for every step.

What I found with the audiobook, is the way James Clear(author) narrates the book added clarity, and really influences his passion and trust in these lessons. If I could give 6 stars I would.

Clear and concise

A tool of a book. No words wasted, delivered all the points clearly like the author’s last name.
Started reading with intent to help developing my exercise habits, and turned out beneficial for cementing my courage to change my career with the idea of explore and exploit. Especially enlightened me for the gene advantage part. Going to read some eugenics book next.

The most important book I’ve ever read

As a person who has spent my life having big dreams yet struggling to follow through on so many of them, this book has beautifully laid out the framework for making good habits stick and becoming the person one wants to be. Make it obvious, make it attractive, make it easy, make it satisfying. This is the lens through which I now view the habits I strive to adopt and the ones with which I want to empower my kids.

Superb. Just get it and apply it.

My review headline says it all. Very practical, very precise and so good that I then bought the paper copy so I could more easily go back to points I want to revisit.
