  • Good Habits, Bad Habits: The Science of Making Positive Changes That Stick

    Rs. 2,390.00

    Wendy Wood

     

    If you’ve ever struggled to make or break a habit, this is the book you need to read. Wendy Wood is widely recognized as the authority on the science of habits — Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take, and host of the TED podcast WorkLife

     

    Wendy Wood is the world’s foremost expert in the field, and this book is essential — Angela Duckworth, author of Grit

     

    Enlightening and insightful . . . Wood’s research and perspective on the malleability of habits will bring hope to any reader looking to create long-term behavioural change ― Publishers Weekly

     

    Wendy Wood . . . is the most thoughtful, innovative person who understands the role of habits in human behaviour . . . I can’t imagine a better person writing this book — Dan Ariely

     

    No one has studied how habits form and direct behaviour better than Professor Wendy Wood . . . She has described how to change negative habits into positive versions better than anybody. She’s the researcher best able to write the next big book on the topic — Robert Cialdini, author of Influence and Pre-Suasion

     

    Fascinating and fun, this book will change a lot of lives . . . Wood brings state-of-the-art social science into contact with the most pressing issues in daily life. She’s a tremendous guide — Cass R. Sunstein, Robert Walmsley University Professor at Harvard University, and author of How Change Happens

     

    In Good Habits, Bad Habits . . . the social psychologist Wendy Wood refutes both [William] James’s determinism and glib exhortations to be proactive, and seeks to give the general reader more realistic ideas for how to break habits. Drawing on her work in the field, she sees the task of sustaining positive behaviors and quelling negative ones as involving an interplay of decisions and unconscious factors . . . Even people who score high on self-control questionnaires may owe their apparent virtue to situational factors rather than to sheer fortitude . . . This observation leads to the crux of her book’s thesis: the path to breaking bad habits lies not in resolve but in restructuring our environment in ways that sustain good behaviors. ― The New Yorker

    The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business

    Rs. 2,690.00

    Charles Duhigg

     

    • NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
    • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Wall Street Journal • Financial Times
    • Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Nominee for Longlist (2012)
    • Goodreads Choice Award Nominee for Nonfiction (2012)

     

    “Entertaining . . . enjoyable . . . fascinating . . . a serious look at the science of habit formation and change.”The New York Times Book Review

     

    “Sharp, provocative, and useful.”—Jim Collins
    “Few [books] become essential manuals for business and living. The Power of Habit is an exception. Charles Duhigg not only explains how habits are formed but how to kick bad ones and hang on to the good.”Financial Times
    “A flat-out great read.”—David Allen, bestselling author of Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity

     

    “You’ll never look at yourself, your organization, or your world quite the same way.”—Daniel H. Pink, bestselling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

     

    I have been spinning like a top since reading The Power of Habit, New York Times journalist Charles Duhigg’s fascinating best-seller about how people, businesses and organizations develop the positive routines that make them productive-and happy. ― The Washington Post

     

    If Duhigg is right about the nature of habits, which I think he is, then trying to get rid of these bad habits won’t work. Instead, what is needed is to teach the managers to identify the cues that lead to these bad habits and rewards, and then learn alternative routines that lead to similar rewards, i.e. business and personal success. ― Forbes

     

    The Power of Habit is chock-full of fascinating anecdotes . . . how an early twentieth century adman turned Pepsodent into the first bestselling toothpaste by creating the habit of brushing daily, how a team of marketing mavens at Procter & Gamble rescued Febreze from the scrapheap of failed products by recognizing that a fresh smell was a fine reward for a cleaning task, how Michael Phelps’ coach instilled habits that made him an Olympic champion many times over, and how Tony Dungy turned the Indianapolis Colts into a Super Bowl-winning team. ― Los Angeles Times
