Tiny Changes, Remarkable Results

No matter your goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving - every day. James Clear, one of the world's leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results.

If you're having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn't you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don't want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change. You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems. Here, you'll get a proven system that can take you to new heights.

Clear is known for his ability to distill complex topics into simple behaviors that can be easily applied to daily life and work. Here, he draws on the most proven ideas from biology, psychology, and neuroscience to create an easy-to-understand guide for making good habits inevitable and bad habits impossible. Along the way, listeners will be inspired and entertained with true stories from Olympic gold medalists, award-winning artists, business leaders, life-saving physicians, and star comedians who have used the science of small habits to master their craft and vault to the top of their field.

Learn how to:

  • Make time for new habits (even when life gets crazy)
  • Overcome a lack of motivation and willpower
  • Design your environment to make success easier
  • Get back on track when you fall off course
  • And much more

Atomic Habits will reshape the way you think about progress and success, and give you the tools and strategies you need to transform your habits - whether you are a team looking to win a championship, an organization hoping to redefine an industry, or simply an individual who wishes to quit smoking, lose weight, reduce stress, or achieve any other goal.

What the critics say

"Atomic Habits was a great read. I learned a lot and think it’ll be helpful to a lot of people." (Gayle King, co-anchor of CBS This Morning and editor-at-large for O, The Oprah Magazine)

"In Atomic Habits, Clear will show you how to overcome a lack of motivation, change your environment to encourage success, and make time for new (and better) habits." (Glamour.com)

"Atomic Habits is a great book for anyone who is frustrated with the way they can’t seem to kick that one (or two dozen) bad habit(s) and wants to finally achieve health, fitness, financial freedom, great relationships, and a good life." (Medium.com)

Editorial Review

Change rarely happens all at once. As Atomic Habits shows, the road to success and life transformation starts with the smallest steps.

Atomic Habits: An Easy and Proven Way to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones is the outcome of writer James Clear’s lived experience, endless research, and countless discoveries about how making small–infinitesimally small–changes can lead to great self-improvement over time. This audiobook falls just as easily into the business and careers world as it does the self-help and habit formation genres. It offers a straightforward and manageable solution for anyone who wants to discard their old bad habits and build newer, better habits in order to progress in any endeavour.

A number-one nonfiction best seller in Canada and on the New York Times list, Atomic Habits has become the go-to guide for finding motivation, creating behaviour change and focusing on continuous improvement. By setting incremental goals and habit stacking, small changes become small habits, which replace bad habits and foster positive decision making. By implementing good daily habits, this innovative self-help book teaches the benefits of hard work and the power of habit. When a particular habit becomes automatic, it is ingrained as part of your identity, highlighting the compound interest of self-improvement. Current habits that are positive reinforce self-control, make bad habits impossible and can change your life with only a few simple steps. As Clear makes clear, the key to success and fulfillment is not to set lofty goals or aim for remarkable results but to steadily focus on forming new habits, which can truly change the way you see yourself, your abilities and your potential.

Atomic Habits is full of takeaways and gems of wisdom that will take your life to new heights. While a lot of people struggle with implementing the best of intentions, everyone can make small habit changes. Clear himself narrates this title with a style that smoothly weaves a story, adding his personality and own experiences to every line, for a system that is sure to bring success to any listener.
