The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do and How to ChangeThe Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do and How to Change by Charles Duhigg
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you like Malcolm Gladwell’s investigative journalistic style, you will take to this book like a duck to water. The notes at the back, based on my rough estimate, span almost one-quarter of the entire book, not including the footnotes that are scattered in some chapters in terribly fine print.

I initially wanted to give this book just 3 stars because I couldn’t fully grasp certain parts of the book (e.g. some of the anecdotes do not seem to support the argument of how habits are formed, or for that matter, if a particular action is the direct result of a habit loop), but then I realised that the failure to understand is probably on my part, not the author’s.
