Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

Improving your life is much easier than you think. Whether it’s losing weight, sleeping more, or restoring your work/life balance – the secret is to start small.

For years, we’ve been told that being more healthy and productive is a matter of willpower: that we should follow the latest fad and make constant changes to our lifestyles. But whether in our diets, fitness plans or jobs, radical overhauls never work. Instead we should start with quick wins — and embed new, tiny habits into our everyday routines.

The world expert on this is Silicon Valley legend BJ Fogg, pioneering research psychologist and founder of the iconic Behaviour Design Lab at Stanford. Now anyone can use his science-based approach to make changes that are simple to achieve and sticky enough to last.

In the hugely anticipated Tiny Habits, BJ Fogg shows us how to change our lives for the better, one tiny habit at a time. Based on twenty years research and his experience coaching over 40,000 people, it cracks the code of habit formation. Focus on what is easy to change, not what is hard; focus on what you want to do, not what you should do. At the heart of this is a startling truth — that creating happier, healthier lives can be easy, and surprisingly fun.

Includes a bonus PDF of graphs and diagrams.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

One to avoid

I am an avid reader of habit and focus based books, so I was really looking forward to this. Unfortunately, I found it so difficult to listen to that, after struggling through the first few chapters, I admitted defeat. Firstly, the narrator speaks really slowly with a weird intonation, which makes the book hard to listen to and unnecessarily long. Next, the content is far too drawn out and convoluted. The author seems to take good basic concepts, and, to make them his own, complicates them with rambling anecdotes, unusual terminology, and impractical solutions. I'd suggest listening to Atomic Habits by James Clear instead, it's far better in my opinion.

Professional Narrator can change everything

Seems this recording was done using some kind of filters and modification. Contents seems interesting.

The best habits book so far

I’ve read lots of habit building formula books but this is by far the most likely to work. I’ve already got a couple of new habits formed thanks to this book and feel confident to take on more with the simple skills learned.
