Say you want to start going to the gym or practicing a musical instrument. How long should it take before you stop having to force it and start doing it automatically? The surprising answers are found in Making Habits, Breaking Habits, a leading psychologist's popular examination of one of the most powerful and underappreciated processes in the brain. Although people like to think that they are in control, the vast majority of human behavior occurs without any decision-making or conscious thought.

Drawing on hundreds of fascinating studies, psychologist Jeremy Dean busts the myths to finally explain why seemingly easy habits, like eating an apple a day, can be surprisingly difficult to form, and how to take charge of your brain's natural autopilot to make any change stick.

Witty and intriguing, Making Habits, Breaking Habits shows how behavior occurs more than just a product of what you think. It is possible to bend your habits to your will - and be happier, more creative, and more productive.

Listener Opinions

    " It read like a truly scientific, reputable psychology book. That is to say, it's a little slow, and actionable takeaways are buried under test results. I was able to create a habit changing action plan that I'm confident in, but it required a lot of work on my part to get there. "

    " I got halfway through before giving up. Your time will be much better spent reading The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Librarymary | 11/14/2013

    " I appreciate books that have some research to back up the author's theories. "

    " No miracle cures here: habits are hard to break/begin, and it takes a conscious effort to change your behavior. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Devin M. D. | 8/31/2013

    " This book was fairly interesting, and had some good tips on how to change a bad habit or implement a good one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 7/30/2013

    " I really liked the concept of this book, but I found it lacking. The writing style was not engaging for me, and I didn't feel the author took the subject as far as he could have. He stops short of showing how we can apply this research effectively. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martin Goldberg | 6/25/2013

    " Some parts were very good, but I couldn't help compare it to the Power of Habit and The Willpower Instinct, both of which tackled the same topic and which were better "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 5/22/2013

    " Listened to this book on my drive to Moab. First half was super boring and obvious. Second half was very good with great tips on how to establish or change a habit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle DiMartino | 5/3/2013

    " As someone with a good handle on CBT this wasn't much new but good points that would have been just as effective in less words. I imagine for people that don't spend much time evaluating the things they do this would be a great book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nilesh | 4/26/2013

    " Quite simply. The best book i have ever read. Applied properly this is a life changing book. Currently reading it for second time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 4/23/2013

    " Reasonably well-written, though they needed a copy editor. The information was incrementally new, not earth-shattering. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison Golden | 2/1/2013

    " This book contains lots of well-referenced research about habits and had some interesting insight. To make it more practical, I would have liked summaries or checklists to help the reader. If you're a student of habit formation, it is an essential read. "
