Tiny Changes, Remarkable Results
No matter your goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving--every day. James Clear, one of the world's leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results.
If you're having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn't you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don't want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change. You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems. Here, you'll get a proven system that can take you to new heights.
Clear is known for his ability to distill complex topics into simple behaviors that can be easily applied to daily life and work. Here, he draws on the most proven ideas from biology, psychology, and neuroscience to create an easy-to-understand guide for making good habits inevitable and bad habits impossible. Along the way, readers will be inspired and entertained with true stories from Olympic gold medalists, award-winning artists, business leaders, life-saving physicians, and star comedians who have used the science of small habits to master their craft and vault to the top of their field.

A new book that covers...
A new book that covers how you can make small incremental changes over time that lead to large results. Atomic means small, as in atoms. I have followed James's Blog (link below) for a number of years and this book covers topics from the blog plus new material. His back story is interesting and inspiring. It is a practical book and he provides ideas to increase your good habits and reduce your bad habits - useful strategies to do both are included. Habits are automatic and many times unconscious, so the more automated and intentional you make your habits the more time you have for other important things. You may need to read it a couple of times to get the most out of all his suggestions. Highly recommend.
Not much that was new ...
Not much that was new here if you've read other habits books like Gretchen Rubin's Better Than Before, but it is presented in a way that seems actionable and possibly a little easier to remember. Would have appreciated more emphasis on how to eliminate bad habits, since some of the strategies seem only partially applicable in that respect. Reminded me of Tim Ferriss in parts -- hack your life, optimize everything and you can win the day! -- but not so obnoxious, I won this book for Librarything Early Reviewers but never received my copy, so I checked it out from the library instead.
