‘A supremely practical and useful book. James Clear distils the most fundamental information about habit formation, so you can accomplish more by focusing on less.’ Mark Manson, author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck
A revolutionary system to get 1 per cent better every day
People think when you want to change your life, you need to think big. But world-renowned habits expert James Clear has discovered another way. He knows that real change comes from the compound effect of hundreds of small decisions – doing two push-ups a day, waking up five minutes early, or holding a single short phone call.
He calls them atomic habits.
In this ground-breaking book, Clear reveals exactly how these minuscule changes can grow into such life-altering outcomes. He uncovers a handful of simple life hacks (the forgotten art of Habit Stacking, the unexpected power of the Two Minute Rule, or the trick to entering the Goldilocks Zone), and delves into cutting-edge psychology and neuroscience to explain why they matter. Along the way, he tells inspiring stories of Olympic gold medalists, leading CEOs, and distinguished scientists who have used the science of tiny habits to stay productive, motivated, and happy.
These small changes will have a revolutionary effect on your career, your relationships, and your life.
‘James Clear has spent years honing the art and studying the science of habits. This engaging, hands-on book is the guide you need to break bad routines and make good ones.’ Adam Grant, author of Originals
‘A special book that will change how you approach your day and live your life.’ Ryan Holiday, author of The Obstacle is the Way
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
James Clear’s Atomic Habits gets straight to the point: If we can change our daily routines, we can change our lives. His argument is that the human mind is hardwired to form habits, so small changes are easier to maintain—and build on—than big ones. With his calm, sincere reading, Clear encourages listeners to stop thinking about major life goals (like losing 50 pounds) in favour of tweaking not-so-good habits (changing your commute route to avoid a favourite doughnut shop). Crucially, Clear also offers concrete steps to take when we slip back into old patterns.

10/10 would recommend
Very helpful and insightful book into how habits can be created and broken. Habit formation has always interested me as procrastination and unhealthy eating have plagued my life over the last year or two so I turned to this book to help me understand why... I got the answers I sought after! Excellent!
Focusing on the process
A highly insightful book, with excellent narration. The biggest takeaway for me has been the idea of process driven development, which, I have found, is a highly productive way of viewing goals and life more generally. It would have helped, though, to have a bit more of a focus on some examples of change that one can actually make, as opposed to purely mentioning them in the context of how one can bring about behavioural change.
Couldn’t stop reading! Small changes = enormous improvements
