    • I have been following James Clear through his blogs and newsletters and have found his advice on habits very useful. This book by James is a very simple and practical assessment of the effects of habits and how to build new good habits and get rid of old bad ones. There is a lot of important information provided through the use of anecdotes and the science of habits but James has managed to keep the writing simple and easy to follow. I see myself revisiting this book as a reference during the course of forming and reassessing new habits. Thanks James!
    • Wow, What a great book!First I love that the author read the audio version help self. I always think you get more hearing it straight from the author and he has a great voice for it.Second, I really appreciate how practical the whole this is. It’s the perfect mix of how-to advice with scientific research and memorable stories.I’m already seeing results from his “Four simple steps to building better habits.” I can see why some habits I’ve tried to create in the past have failed and why some have succeeded. I also really like the bonus downloads he talks about in the book. The Cheat Sheet has been especially helpful.Third, I love that it’s appropriate and engaging for all ages. I’ve listened to a lot of it with my 11 year old and he’s already experimenting with creating new habits to help him focus on his homework. Of course, it’s because he wants to finish early and move on to video games! But I see how appealing of a reward that is for him, so it’s not all bad.
    • Such useful information, like his emails.Just have to follow the ideas!!
    • I have been reading James Clear's blog for some time now. His writing is inciteful, well researched and written in a relatable way through storytelling. Aside from habits, this book can help you improve yourself with steps on how to do so. Some books will just tell you what you need to improve, but this book shows you how and what steps to take with scientific research to back it up. I really appreciate that he's not always trying to sell people on some super expensive course or advertise to his audience. He is clear, transparent, and generous with his knowledge. I have the audiobook and it's good to listen to as well. I haven't finished the book yet, but have already gained so many insights from it.
    • James Clear's work scientifically backs up his premise that it's not your goals that help you achieve your dreams. It's the daily (often tiny) incremental actions of the systems you have in place. While he has the science and studies to back up each point, it is explained simply and concisely. (Material in the notes and on the website is there for anyone who wants to read about the studies in detail.)If you're having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn't you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again, not because you don't want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change. As Clear puts it, "I believe that you do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems."If you want to have a growing career or healthier body, if you want to accomplish anything that requires daily positive behavior, do check out James Clear. I have read his excellent articles for years, including his free 45-page Transform Your Habits: The Science of How to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones e-book. I also went through his Habits Academy classes last year, which were excellent.Atomic Habits is the culmination of his years of studying what works--and what doesn't--when building habits that will give you the kind of life you yearn for. And he shows you how to accomplish it: with tiny changes that yield remarkable results.
