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...

    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 ...

    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... :)
  • Les
    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.
  • Romanas Wolfsborg
    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 ...

    I would recommend this to fans of the Power of Habit, it was easy to read and quite interesting but nothing life changing.
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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.
  • 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...
  • 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...

    Very helpfulThis book is very helpful. Lots of great tips. I hope I can put them to good use. Seems simple enough.
  • 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...

    I won this in a Goodreads giveaway.Well written book on how to change your habits.
  • Arslan
    Best Book for forming new habits and cementing them . It's an interesting collection of helpful insights. Must Read
  • Christi
    If you are going to read one book on habits, this is it! I've read several books about building habits and I didn't expect there would be anything new here. Surprisingly, there were some new ideas and also a great recap of many of the concepts I've read before. James Clear understands that we are not one size fits all and gives us lots of different techniques to apply to build (or break) your own habits. He also interjects some personal stories a...

    I would say 3.5. James Clear's blog is one of the few blogs that I return to every now and then. he writes very useful content delivered with easy to read style. this book is insightful about how to make habits work, and about human behavior generally. however, one downside of this book is his approach is not applicable to all habits. nevertheless, one can get a lot from the book to improve, which, hopefully, I intend to do.

    I absolutely loved the perspective shift this book brought. Some info may not have been new but it was presented in a fresh way that really had my brain re-thinking how I approach goals, routines and habits. I definitely plan on making this an annual read!
  • 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.

    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...

    “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 identity.” I've read a number of books on how to form positive habits, including The Power of Habit by Duhigg, and in my opinion, Atomic Habits by Clear ranks as the best. It covers what could be considered as ideas of common sense, but presents these ideas in a...

    4.5 stars. I REALLY liked this. Like, it was so insightful without being groundbreaking. Hard to explain. Plus, everything he said was so reasonable. AND! It was rooted in evidence. Always a good thing. A few things I want to remember...* The ultimate form of intrinsic motivation is when a habit becomes part of your identity. It's one thing to say I'm the type of person who wants this. It's something very different to say I'm the type of person w...
  • Bianca (theperksofbeingbianca)
    I love these behavioural psychology books. It has a lot of useful information and at the same time it motivates me to do stuff! These past couple of years had been weird. I've always been good at school, at sports and languages, but I haven't kept on with those habits lately and I can see how that affected my identity in a negative way. I've dropped out of college (just this semester), stopped playing volleyball almost two years ago and haven't c...
