I am not a fan of diet books -- I've seen too many "diets-of-the-moment" come and go. But I love books that teach readers HOW to diet. This book does that and more. It's a book about habits: how they're formed and how you can change your habits to achieve your goals. Duhigg explains the neurology of habits in an easy-to-understand way, interwoven with true stories to illustrate the principles he's teaching. I found The Power of Habit to be, in theory at least, easy to apply in day-to-day life. Changing habits is really hard and Duhigg doesn't pretend otherwise. The combination of solid evidence with illustrative and inspirational stories made for an easy read.
