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.

    " 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. "

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