Read an Excerpt
It is so easy to overestimate the importance of one defining moment and underestimate the value of making small improvements on a daily basis. Too often, we convince ourselves that massive success requires massive action. Whether it is losing weight, building a business, writing a book, winning a championship, or achieving any other goal, we put pressure on ourselves to make some earth- shattering improvement that everyone will talk about.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I’ve been reading James Clear’s articles for quite some time and I highly recommend him to many people. This book is an in depth, well-researched, no nonsense approach to accomplishing so much more and eliminating habits that don’t serve you well. The real life stories and science behind what we do illustrate his points very well without being overly technical. Great reading! Insightful!
I have read many self help books. This book not only gives good information. It provides you with actionable steps. Great read!
This book is very digestible, a fairly quick read packed full of intensely useful information. If you’re looking to break old habits or start new ones, you should understand *how* that process works, and this is the best book I’ve read on the subject so far. I will say that books like this give me more pause nowadays than they used to. I’m so wary of productivity porn that encourages you to work your heart out in this capitalist hellscape, force-feeding you the lie that if you just work hard enough, you can pull yourself up by your bootstraps. I think hard work is great, and optimizing our processes and habit formation is efficient, effective, and downright smart. But let’s all make sure not to forget to look at the macro of the system we’re trying to achieve things in. Don’t forget about capitalism, don’t ignore the signs of burnout, don’t deny the existence of systemic biases that might mean you’ve got all the odds stacked against you from the start. So, aside from that heavy-handed caveat: anyone interested in learning more about the habit-formation process, and how to hack that system to optimize your own life, should read this book! It’s concise, very well written, and you’ll be taking notes left and right because it’s all so darn useful.
