The #1 New York Times bestseller. Over 4 million copies sold!

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, readers 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.

Really changed my perspective and understanding of habits ! Great Read !

I don’t usually write reviews but this is most definitely tied with my favorite book about this topic.

This book helps you to get control over negative habits while accelerating positive habits.

Easy read with good stories but basically repeats itself through much of the book. Could have been 6 chapters

Very well written

Yep, another review saying it. But this book is truly life changing. A completely new way to think about discipline and progress.

Unearthed some principles I knew subconsciously, and gave me new strategies to work with.

Pretty good self-help book. Allows you to look at life by different stages and executing it precisely. Every step matters.

This was a wonderful read & helpful in creating habits that have brought much peace to my life.

Top 5 book!

There is great information in this book and definitely reminders of some subconscious activities we perform without assessing them. Check it out! 1%+

I finished this book in two days because it gives some much suggestion and right mindset on building habits. I find proper methods to start, undergo habits and sustain habits next time. The attitude for having habits taught me enjoy the process and reward for the habit I cultivate.

Fantastic book. So many great stories and references that could be applied and implemented immediately to see results. Between this and Outwitting the Devil, I’ve added 2 new books to my top 10 list.

For anyone who is looking to start creating changes in their life this is a great point of view .

It should definitely be this one. This is the most important book in all of self improvement, a must read and a must first read. Will be reading this over and over until it’s engraved in my head.

Me encanta la forma en que está estructurado el libro. Ame las historías de éxito , cuando hablaba de grandes personajes de la historia y como con hábitos lo han logrado. En algún punto quizá me aburrí un poco , pero se puso interesante nuevamente. Lo leería mas de una vez

Great book! Easy to read and valuable.

Such a great book! Will literally change your life! These are the books they should have us ready in high school!

This book gave me the chills when I finished my reading. It really helped me realize what bad habits I had and how to minimize them while also creating good habits along the way.

Absolutely loved this book so much! Can’t express how grateful I am for this perspective and the tools I now have to become 1 percent better each day. I have already seen the compounding effect as I have applied the 4 Laws of Behavior Change and using the Habit Tracker! I will always recommend this amazing book to all and especially to those I love! Thank you James Clear, thank you for your work and this absolutely masterpiece.

I have always wanted to make changes in my life and I have started many good habits and unfortunately bad. But regardless of how great or how much a “habit” improved my life I could never stick with it. But after reading this book I finally understand how the process of life and self improvement looks. Over the last 2 weeks reading this book, my life has begun to change dramatically and for the good. This time around however, I no longer strive for a certain goal or outcome for every habit. Instead I focus on the overall goal and the small steps or small improvements that I am making by showing up and being consistent. Thank you James Clear for not only the research that went into this book but sharing the wonderful knowledge of atomic habits.

High impact through small changes.

Deep insight on both developing good habits and removing bad ones. I even started exercising some methods into my daily routine and already have noticeable change. Great find! Will have to read again and take notes this time.

This book genuinely made me look at life differently. It helped me change my environment for the better and set myself up for success. If you put the information in this book into practice, it WILL change you.

This is a great book. There is just the right amount of redundancy that the critical points are well learned and remembered. Wish I had read this book earlier in my life! Great job!

This book helped many in so many ways from changing my mindset to knowing how to make change happen to feeling Encouraged about the future.

I’m sure it can be inspirational to some

This book is incredible. It made me completely re-evaluate how I look at my behavior and does an amazing job of giving a new insight to how we go through our daily lives. A multitude of real life examples, readable charts, and helpful graphics complement this easy-to-read book and it’s become one of my favorites of all time. I can’t recommend this book enough.

I’ve been wrestling with some personal habits and this book helped me to understand it isn’t a fault in me, but my habit forming system. This book added several tools in my toolbox to help me work on some of my habits and help me shape my understanding about myself. Highly recommend it!

Minding blowing !!!!

This book really puts the value of building good habits into perspective, helps to make starting and keeping a habit easy. Learned a lot that has help me start good habits that iv been on only 20 sum days consistently and confident that it will continue. I recommend if you are looking to build good habits and break bad ones.

Great book!

It really broke some things down for me and made think about the habits that are so automatic for me. Already implementing some things and myself and my wife have noticed a change.

If you want to change your habits this give you a great insight on how to do so. We all struggle in our ways to change things, James walks your through step-by-step.

Information, or rather the effect of information, is highly dependent of one’s emotional state, ie, if someone is in the appropriate emotional state to be ready to apply life altering changes, can be extremely gratifying. When I first picked up this book, mentally, I wasn’t ready for its intended message. Consequently, I flipped through the first couple pages fairly passively acknowledging the message and considering it fairly obvious. I wasn’t inspired. Certain life events occurred after starting this book which changed my emotional state and caused certain aspects of my perspective, unknowingly and organically, to shift and be open to exactly where this book seemed to be heading. Once this acknowledgment took place, I read this book voraciously. The light switch flipped on. Throughout the rest of the process of reading this book many “switches” kept flipping. What was once common sense transitioned to re-applying what was known to a more effective structure suited for creating a sustainable change rather than momentary inspirational blips on a map. This book hit home and it has helped me develop a perspective I once dreamed of but didn’t know how to hone. This started the first domino of a chain reaction which I feel better equipped to direct. I’d love to thank this author. I am grateful for your product. Thank you.

Simple and extraordinary at the same time

So many ppl recommended this book and now understand why . Basic yet effective concepts to navigate through life

Fantastic book with practical, easily-actionable changes that bring real results.

I knew the content of a lot of this book, but seeing it all written out so clearly was incredibly valuable.

The approach suggested in the book to develop good habits is feasible and fruitful. The examples used by author are truly inspiring. It’s the book one can read multiple times while trying to get back on track in life.

An amazing book that will break down the science and motivation behind habits in a clear concise way

I love this book so much. I love how the author presents his ideas in clear and straightforward ways, this makes the ideas easy to understand and the concepts easy to apply and implement into ones life. I highly recommend.

Really forces you to reflect and improve your daily habits. This is one of those books that I think everybody should read once. An eye opener.

Great and enjoyable read

Great book, easy to understand and very practical. Highly recommend

Great book 📚

As a professional sales person and coach it just helped open my eyes to how much there is to know about compound interest and change. Get up and start the habit.

By far one of the best books I have read in my life. I have learnt a ton from it, very intriguing and fascinating content, and extremely practical as well. It’s the kind of book that I would recommend everyone to read it. Excellent book.

This book saved my life. Bold statement I know but when you start to understand how small little negative habits are eating away at your success, happiness, joy and love it becomes scary to think of what 5 or 10 years down the road looks like. I listened to this book in December of 2018. I only started to apply these tools in February of 2019. I was at my lowest at that point. I was 192lb, drinking at least 2 drinks a day and rarely exercising. I let my business falter and my marriage was heading down a terrible path. This book sparked me, but not only that gave me tangible tools to make the tiny micro changes I needed to do I could get back on track. It started with 5 push-ups and 5 sit-ups. We are almost a year later to the date and I have lost 20lbs. I have completed 75 Hard and am not only in the best shape of my life I feel like I am in elite shape comparatively. My business is thriving and I have had so many opportunities hit my plate in the last 2 months that I can barely keep up. I have fully prescribed to the notion of setting huge goals and then setting the smallest habits to get their. Thank you for writing this book and truly saving my life. I cannot express in words how different 2019 would be had I not read this book.

so the book is amazing.. very practical and easy to follow. like most books there is a ton of examples or stories that support the point being made.. he’s not repeating himself.

Good book, easy to digest 👍🏽 I would recommend to all ages

I’ve read The Compound Effect, The Slight Edge, and many other habit development books. This book takes it a step further and really illuminates human behavior in a whole new level. Very very glad I finally picked this up after hearing it recommended so many times.

It’s a stepping stone of fixing your bad habits and creating new ones; and how to stick with the new habits without seeing them as a chore.

One of the simplest, yet eye-opening books I’ve ever read. If you’re into self-improvement this book is a must read. You will be surprised how profound some of the smallest changes to your environment and habits can radically change who you are over time. Thank you James for writing such an exceptional book, and helping so many learn how to sustainability refine and better themselves.

what a treasure!!

Very well explained & easy to follow. The summaries are nice to recap. Thank you for this wonderful book.

Very good book. I highly recommend it. This has change my life and how I see progress by creating habits that move me to the right direction. Habits that shape my identity.

This is the best book about building habits I’ve ever read. It provides both very solid theoretical framework and very actionable tips.

This is good for beginners on self development. Personally felt too simple and sounded like other books I’ve read.

I loved the high- level approach and the summaries of each section of “atomic habits” definite read and will re read again during those “ruts”.

This book is awesome

Great Book! My first book I finished this year and thanks to James Clear, I am moving toward establishing good habits! If you’re contemplating reading this book, don’t!

Excellent way to interpret that’s surely turn you into habit changes and satisfaction . Cue, craving, routine , satisfaction is the way you will automise some of your daily work and spend more time in difficult tasks. Best wishes and must read .

Life-changing book. It demands a place on every personal bookshelf!

Amazing. Remarkable. Interesting. Recommend to anyone at any age interested in making positive changes.

Very helpful!

Great book! Helps you build habits and stick with them. Very motivating!

Great book and a must read 🏆🏆🏆👍🏽

This book is so fun to read and has been amazing in starting to transform my life. It’s been hard to put down. Thank you

Very detailed approach to creating good habits and getting rid of bad habits. Ive already done a lot of these things and had great success prior to this book. Now i have a better blue print to go by.

I really enjoyed this book. It hasn’t changed my life in any huge ways (yet), but that’s the point. It’s helped me see very small ways I can make adjustments and I’m excited to see what these changes do for me 1, 5, 10 years down the road!

I recommend this book if you are trying to polish your habits. Both good and bad habits.

Very informative and great techniques you can implement into your daily routine to build a better life.

This book is the blueprint!

Very easy to read. Very inspiring and interesting. Simple but extremely effective.

Really appreciated this book. Having structure behind creating good strong habits is so helpful. It’s a must read for everyone. I will add it to my list of books that I read every year as a refresher. It’s so worthwhile.

I’ve been amazed by the idea of the book, and how we can apply small changes to our habits system that would dramatically change complete how we feel and interact to out habits in our daily life. This is truly a breakthrough book and I recommend it to anyone who wants build a new or remove a bad habits in his/her life.

Great reference and an easy read

I really enjoyed this book; it continued to add concepts that I hadn’t necessarily considered from a certain point of view, or just plain hadn’t heard yet. It definitely made me think and give way for reflection; I loved it!

A book that is engaging, inspiring and encouraging. Atomic Habits shows you a method to creating a better path to improving your life by creating lasting habits. Definitely will keep this on my list of excellent reads. Thank you James clear

Good book

I’m just thinking to myself, I wish I read this book the moment it was released. I’m not sure what my life will be life if I didn’t read this book in this season. Thank you James Clear. I’ve been empowered to begin my success journey.

Includes some nice tips about starting and sticking with goals. Overall I found this take a bit too simple and tone deaf to oppressive variables in society such as class and race.

An absolute must read. And not only is this a must read, it provides the tools for outstanding and constant improvement toward life itself.

Became the best book I’ve read on personal behavior modification in thirty years. A ~H~

Awesome book!


I needed to rethink my habits and this gave me a fresh perspective. Really working “my system” to change things.

Clarity. That’s one word I’d use to describe Atomic Habits. Imagine you’re wanting to change your life. And imagine that your mind is the sky. Now imagine how many things are up there on autopilot. This book teaches you how to reroute those things (planes; habits), prepare for takeoff (start new habits), and land with intention (end bad habits).


Definitely has life changing information backed by science. Great read would recommend to anyone looking to break a bad habit.

After reading this book, I got a clear picture about how good habits can be made a part of your everyday life in a systematic manner.

Great read on the science of habits. Much of this isn’t complex but that’s the beauty. It’s all about the execution on how to set yourself up for daily success. I couldn’t recommend this book more if you want to leverage the daily actions that lead to big results.

The title pretty much sums it up. You could probably cut the intro and condense any insight of the book in 25 pages tops.

“Atomic Habits” connects a wide variety of ideas across disciplines to present the reader with some new perspectives on changing your behavior. It’s a solid book with good theoretical and practical advice, but if you already have a hard time with self discipline, I don’t know that it will totally change your life. It may help you navigate it a little better, though.

Great book

Great read with lots of applications. The best for me is to change a small habit first

If you like this kind of genre, this book isn’t for you. Reason being that most ideas and even anecdotes are recycled from other books. Nothing new here.

About James Clear Wiki

Clear and Present Danger is a 1994 American action thriller film directed by Phillip Noyce and based on Tom Clancy's 1989 novel of the same name. It is a sequel to The Hunt for Red October (1990) and Patriot Games (1992). All three movies featured Clancy's character Jack Ryan, though Ford only played the role in the last two. It is the last film version of Clancy's novels to feature Harrison Ford as Ryan and James Earl Jones as Vice Admiral James Greer, as well as the final installment directed by Noyce. As in the novel, Ryan is appointed CIA Acting Deputy Director (Intelligence) (DDI), and discovers he is being kept in the dark by colleagues who are conducting a covert war against a drug cartel in Colombia, apparently with the approval of the President. The film premiered in theaters in the United States on August 3, 1994, and was a major financial success, earning over $200 million at the box office.
