Genre – Self Help Book 

Rating- ⅘ stars 

This week I read “Atomic Habits” by James Clear, a guide to making good habits easier and bad habits go away. It starts out with an opening about how James Clear got into teaching others about habits through his journey of life threatening injury, baseball, and public speaking. After his life story, he goes into each tool he recommends for creating healthy consistent habits that he personally uses. Clarifying that he personally did not come up with these habit ideas but he modified them to make them easier to understand and brought them together to apply to everyday life. Laying out 3 Laws to help titled “Make It Obvious,” Make It Attractive,”and “Make it Easy” followed with more advanced tactics for the last chapter. 

I recommend this book to people that struggle with sticking with habits. This book helps improve the mindset of habits and healthy ways to create consistent good habits through easy switches.  Also if you enjoyed books such as “Atlas of the Heart” by Brené Brown, “Getting Things Done” by David Allen, “How to Change” by Katy Milkman, and “The Culture Code” by Daniel Coyle.
