Mildly interesting but not really worth the money,
This review is from: The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do, and How to Change (Paperback)
First of all, this is not a how-to book. Although lessons can be learned and methods derived from the content, this book does not give a lot away in terms of tips and tricks.
The book is in three parts. Individual habits, group or organisational, and societal habits. Most readers will have interest in only the first. So that is a large chunk of the book not read. The content is mostly not new and can be found on blogs, articles or wikipedia. The author has gone to the trouble of consolidating it and making the style accessible and so deserves credit for that.
If this book was going for a the price of a latte it would be pitched about right. It is probably best to wait until that happens.
