Summary
Wendy Wood is the world's foremost expert in the field, and this book is essential.' Angela Duckworth, bestselling author of Grit A landmark, myth-busting, book about how we form habits, and what we can do with this knowledge to make positive change by Prof Wendy Wood, the leading authority on the science of habits. Shockingly, we spend nearly half our day repeating things we've done in the past without thinking about them. How we respond to the people around us; the way we conduct ourselves in a meeting; what we buy; when and how we exercise, eat, and drink - a truly remarkable number of things we do every day, we do by habit. And yet, whenever we want to change something about ourselves, we rely on willpower alone. We hope that our determination and intention will be enough to effect positive change. And that is why almost all of us fail. What if you could harness the extraordinary power of your unconscious mind, which already determines so much of what you do, to actually achieve your goals? Professor Wendy Wood is the world's foremost expert on habits. By drawing on three decades of original research she explains the fascinating science of how we form habits, and provides the key to unlocking our habitual mind in order to make the changes we seek. Combining a potent mix of neuroscience, case studies, and experiments conducted in her lab, Good Habits, Bad Habits is a comprehensive, accessible, and deeply practical book that will change the way you think about almost every aspect of your life
