Reviews Atomic Habits

  • Simon
    This book does a great job of laying down the framework of how habits are formed, and shares insightful strategies for building good habits and breaking bad ones. Even though I was already familiar with research behind habit formation, reading through this book helped me approach habits I’m trying to adopt or break in my own life from different angles.But the book suffers from the same problems that seem to plague all self-help books. In the ch...

    I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway yesterday and immediately settled down to read it. I am always very skeptical of self help books because they often do no get to the root of issues. This one did. James Clear's main arguments are that habits are the compound interest of self improvement and that your identify emerges out of your habits. So, you must expereince a shift in identity for your habits to hold. This made a lot of sense to me,...

    My 2019 girl boss recommendation. 💕“Habits do not restrict freedom. They create it. Building habits in the present allows you to do more of what you want in the future.”This book has helped me build a more productive morning routine and I love it! ☀ Being a morning person has always been a struggle for me, but this book gives you very clear and very easy steps to create the life you’ve always imagined. When going through your daily hab...

    This is a dual review of two books about habit. Habits are important things in one’s life and there are numerous books on the subject. The classic book, a must read, is The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey. Another two popular books about habits are The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg and Atomic Habits by James Clear, that came out very recently. Having read all three of them I combined my notes for the last two in this ...

    This is basically reinforcement for Duhigg's books on habits. There is some good advice--get rid of obstacles, use cues of things you like to do with things you need to do (i.e., everytime you check facebook, do pushups or whatever). It's good advice, but nothing new or unique.
  • Mark Kater
    This book is what I expected "The power of habit" to be. Where TPOH mostly is a collection of stories/anecdotes, Atomic Habits actually goes over practical ways of implementing your own system. It's great! Here's to stop reading and to start doing... :)
  • Stephen Lubin
    8/10Atomic Habits is a useful book. It’s a practical guide to identifying and changing your habits. It’s something you can actually put into practice in your life. I think that all of the concepts in the book are good and useful to know but some of the action points I think are slightly oversimplified. If you take the action points in some chapters and modify them to your specific situation you can still apply most of them but you do have to ...

    I was enlightened by "Willpower" and got some great takeaways from "The Power of Habit", but this is next-level in terms of practical steps and also generating pivotal mental shifts both for the immediate and long terms. Important note: it gets better with each successive chapter - something critical to know since the opening is understandably crucial to the author, but not so much to many readers. Read it.
  • Hampus Jakobsson
    TLDR; - "You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems."- The best way of building a habit is making it part of your identity.- Make it easy to start: Habits are the entry point - not the goal. "Read 30 books" ⇒ "Read before bed every night" ⇒ "Read one page". Reduce a habit into a 2-minute first step.- Stick to the plan: "Professionals stick to the schedule, amateurs let life get in the way." Don't be a "f...
  • David Laing
    In an episode of the North Star Podcast with David Perrell, the software entrepreneur Daniel Gross said something that I thought was very wise:The definition of a habit, for me, is something that doesn’t require willpower. How can I build a large collection of habits that are healthy—that are correct—and save them to RAM in my head so that I don’t have to think about them? I would like to have that done by the end of my 20s. I’d like to...
  • Annie
    Before starting this book, write down some good habits you want to build and some bad habits you want to break. This book is filled with practical steps and examples. Yes, there are plenty of habit-building books out there (just as there are plenty of diet books but yet there's still more new books published every year). Plenty of people are seeking the right book that resonates with them. The key points in this book are:* Compound Effect - Very ...
  • Mariana Vieira
    This is THE book for habit building and tracking. James Clear provides clear insights on various aspects regarding habits and the four laws are simple and easy to remember. Definitely recommend!
  • Zohreh Avatefi hafez
    If you want to lose weight or want to be good book reader you can find many useful ways to make good habits in this book,but for habitual persons like me it have one or two good advice. Farther more this book is good and useful at all.اگر قصد داريد وزن كم كنيد يا از دست فضاهاي مجازي خلاص شويد اين كتاب روشهاي خوب و قابل استفاده اي براي شما دارد،اگر هم مث...
  • Katie (katieladyreads)
    I would recommend this to fans of the Power of Habit, it was easy to read and quite interesting but nothing life changing.
  • Youghourta
    كتاب "العادات الذّرّيّة" يتحدثّ حول كيفية بناء عادات حميدة جديدة وكيفية التّخلص من عادات سيّئة. في حقيقة الأمر لم تكن أغلب مُحتويات الكتاب جديدة علي، فمعظمها يعتمد على دراسات ومصادر إما ذائعة الصيت أو سبق لي أن صادفتها في كتب أخرى، ككتاب "قوة العاد...
  • Laura Noggle
    Enjoyed this one much more than The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business, as it's more to the point. Some great takeaways and excellent reminders. Each chapter succinctly summarized at the end, very quotable. Highly recommend. Favorite Quotes:“Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become. No single instance will transform your beliefs, but as the votes build up, so does the evidence of your new...
  • Scott Barngrover
    A life changing book. I was lucky to get an advanced copy. James gives great advice on how to build good habits and how to break bad ones. He gives very interesting real life examples and charts that explain his points in an entertaining way. Each chapter has a summary and there is an overall summary of the key principles (laws). I highly recommend this book.
  • Gabriele
    After watching an interview with James Clear, I had to read this book. In only 200 pages he explains everything you need to know in order to work on your habits. Plus, I also got the feeling that he is a nice and fun person in general.
  • Angie Dokos
    Very helpfulThis book is very helpful. Lots of great tips. I hope I can put them to good use. Seems simple enough.
  • Ahmad Abugosh
    There are a lot of books on habits, but this is the best book on habits I've ever read! It breaks things down in a way that is based on research and actionable. A few things that stuck with me are:1) Whenever you do a habit, you are casting a vote for the person you want to become2) When you slip up, it's ok. You just have to make the next action you take, be one that is an action you want your ideal person to take3) A 1% improvement a day, can l...

    Why do I keep doing thing to myself? It's the same superficial, regurgitated information I've been stumbling across on self-help blogs for the past 10 years. Robotic writing, highly repetitive, anecdotes taken out of context to conveniently prove the author's point, shoddy "science". It reads like an informational. This is essentially was this was, another platform to enhance the author's brand and add to his "passive income".
  • Mohammed Bouarrata
    Great book. Well researched, simple, straight forward (for the most part).I would recommend this book to any who look at the title and think "I could use that" because it lives up to its title. If you struggle with building or breaking habits, this book will offer useful insight on how to do that, or at least help you understand why it is that way. In case you are already familiar with the research behind the study, you could still benefit from s...
  • Kika
    I’ve just gotten the time to write about this lovely lovely book. I’ll preface this by saying that I am a productivity junkie. Like a complete nerd. I have 2 habit tracking apps. 2 planners: one is a journal/to-do list planner and one is a ginormous calendar. I watch productivity videos 24/7 too, my favourite YouTubers include Thomas Frank, Matt D’Avella, Michelle B, Med School Insiders, Ali Abdaal etc. I watch Tedx videos like an addict. S...

    I really liked this book. It is very practical and interesting. It did remind me a little bit of The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg. It included a lot less of the story telling, but included much of the advice of changing habits. It also reminded me of The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work by Shawn Achor. A really great book, that...
  • Martin Georgiev
    Great book containing ideas that we are all aware of but need to hear and act upon. The author tells interesting and relevant stories while mixing in some research on the topic. There are occasional unusual tips and tricks for habit formation and continuity. The system is quite rigid and similar to the one found in "The Power of Habit". I was not particularly happy about the constant links to his website but that might have been due to the Audiob...
  • Willian Molinari
    This is an amazing book! I've been reading about productivity and habits for a while now and I think this book does a great work of gathering everything together and presenting in a nice form.I think I liked it even more because I already apply many of the tips written here and I can assure (at least to myself) that it actually works. I have to say that it was really great to hear a confirmation of what I've been doing for years. :)If you read th...
  • Pam
    4.5*I found this book to be extremely helpful, even on the first day that I started reading it. I immediately changed the way I think about myself (organized and productive vs. unorganized and lazy) and created a plan to change my morning habits. It was much easier to do than I imagined. Mostly, I think it is because I wanted the change. I don't think there are any ideas in this book that I've never considered or didn't try BUT it was the present...
