Our willpower is limited, yet we rely on it every day to get our tasks done. Even if we build willpower slowly over time, it's never enough to reach all of our goals. The solution lies in habit creation, the method by which we transform hard tasks into easy ones, making them automatic and independent of our will power. Each of us has millions of habits, in how we do our work, interact with others, perceive the world, and think about ourselves. Left unexamined, these habits are just as likely to hinder our progress as they are to push it along. Without a deliberate system for building habits, we become our own worst enemy.
Superhuman by Habit examines habit building in depth. It covers the principles and philosophies of habit building, as well as the practical nuts and bolts implementing those habits. The second half of the audiobook is dedicated to specific habits in every major area of life, covering the pros and cons of each, the path to implementing them, and specific notes about each one.

Great read if you want to fully understand the importance of habits and exactly why and how they can make us excel.. I find I am looking forward to implementing some of his habit suggestions now!
Does exactly what it says on the tin! Since applying this I've been able to exercise every day, and wake up at 4:30am and go straight for a walk. Now those two habits are almost automatic I'm adding meditation into the mix, Tynan's method makes it effortless! Thank you : )
"A good addition to your habit formation library"
I've spent several months finding, reading/listening to every book I can find about habit formation. Some are rich with science to back up why habit formation is at the core of who we are. Others, like this one, are practical, down-to-earth and easy to digest.
I enjoyed this book very much! Makes me feel in the right path, thanks for that!
"great audio book"
Thers a lot of helpful habit building tips i would have liked it more if it was longer
"Logically, simplified ways to create good habits. "
It was so informative I listened to it three times. Definitely worth your time now.
"Poor production quality"
Background noise, out takes, uneven volume. I can't even really evaluate the content because the audio is so distracting.
A fantastic book - best book I've read on habits. Delivery could use some work though.
"Reads like a self-published e-book"
I really liked the concepts in this book, and it's nice that the author spells out exact examples of how to implement them. I can also appreciate that the author is narrating his own book, and that is the only reason I gave the performance 2 stars instead of 1. Authors are not the same as performers, and so when an author narrates their own book, mistakes are more acceptable because they are really writers, not narrators. Bad narration can be made up for by good editing, but this book doesn't have good editing. At one point you can even hear the narrator ask himself how to say a word. This audio book is cheap and it's obvious when you are listening to it. But I guess you get what you pay for.
"A must read after you read The Practicing Mind"
Great book. The author makes it simple to understand and mood to your life. Well worth your time and money.
"Engaging, well researched, and results focused."
Tynan connects each habit's value to real life using a story, then summarizes the key points and gives you ideas to put it into action immediately. I find myself rereading sections often, because it's so filled with practical, implementable ideas. His narration is upbeat and natural. PG
Great information.. Clear, concise and to the point. I listened to it 3 times. Made a difference in my life!!
