Editor 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.

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.

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.

I started from flossing my teeth.

First of all I want to thank James Clear for simplifying the science of habits.
I’ve been in and out of hospitals for the past 3 years because of depression amongs other things. I’ve struggled to get back on my habits. I got diagnosed with ADHD as an adult which made even harder to start focusing back on the small habits in life. Everything from my mouth hygiene to sleeping was out of order and even my psychologist was struggling to get me back on track. I started with flossing my teeth, now I wake up early, I work, do yoga and slowly building up my life again and his book is one of the tools that helped me do that.

Amazing

I do not normally write reviews but this book is amazing!

From front to back I thoroughly enjoyed it and I will take so much from it, I plan on listening to it a further 6 times to ingrain the values it teaches around making and breaking habits.

Fantastic

Inspirational, accessible, practical

James Clear doesn't just bestow inspiration for building a better life 1% at a time he also provides a practical road map for how to do it. He adds depth to the book by realting his points to interesting examples from the lives of well-known successful people. I've already started implementing some of his simple guidance into my daily routines.
