What a Treat! 27 Jun 2012
By Phyllis Antebi Ph.D - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm amazed that I'm the first to write a review of "Habit", by William James. Many of the James editions are actually so inexpensive, I consider them "Thank You's' from Kindle for just being a subscriber. I write this review for having learned so much about mental habits, how they influence our lives for better or worse, how they originate and how to go about altering bad habits, and how to develop better ones. O.k., so the title tells you this already, but you can have the audio on Kindle recite it to you as you walk your dog. Don't yet have a dog? You can still always get one! You can call him 'William' or ' James' and walk him as you listen to this fine book.

book is public domain 6 Jan 2014
By MP - Published on Amazon.com
This 'book' is actually a chapter in his Principles of Psychology. Because it is in the public domain, it is also available as a free (and legal) download online.

Not too good for me 18 Aug 2013

I am not sure where I received the idea to purchase this book.
I may have purchased this book because the author of this book
is William James a Harvard psychologist.
