Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

Improving your life is much easier than you think. Whether it’s losing weight, sleeping more, or restoring your work/life balance – the secret is to start small.

For years, we’ve been told that being more healthy and productive is a matter of willpower: that we should follow the latest fad and make constant changes to our lifestyles. But whether in our diets, fitness plans or jobs, radical overhauls never work. Instead we should start with quick wins — and embed new, tiny habits into our everyday routines.

The world expert on this is Silicon Valley legend BJ Fogg, pioneering research psychologist and founder of the iconic Behaviour Design Lab at Stanford. Now anyone can use his science-based approach to make changes that are simple to achieve and sticky enough to last.

In the hugely anticipated Tiny Habits, BJ Fogg shows us how to change our lives for the better, one tiny habit at a time. Based on twenty years research and his experience coaching over 40,000 people, it cracks the code of habit formation. Focus on what is easy to change, not what is hard; focus on what you want to do, not what you should do. At the heart of this is a startling truth — that creating happier, healthier lives can be easy, and surprisingly fun.

Includes a bonus PDF of graphs and diagrams.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

Good one to start new habits

This one is good for habits formation. The concept is backed up by behavioral science and emphasis on starting small. Many similarities between Atomic Habits but this explains rationale from behavioral model.

Erudite and Practical

The content is easy to understand and put into practice. There are no oversimplifications. The methodologies are built on solid research and presented clearly and cojently.

The author reads it himself, a brave choice given his voice struggles. I found it better to listen at 1.2 or 1.3x speed as it’s a bit slow at normal speed.

Thank you, Dr Fogg, for getting your work into the world. It’s inspiring work. I believe you are saving and improving lives and I will recommend your book to people in my circles.

Eye opener, Life changing action pla by an expert.

It's a transformative, life changing work book. Never thought formation of good and bad habits could be explained in simpler terms. It's only a matter of time that, from teachers and parents to all big multinational players in the world, will be naturally using these principle of behavior design. Well done BJ for lighting the candle of hope for perpetual procrastinators like me. Never thought I will be able to make 15 tiny habits in 3 days. Thanks again.

A tiny method for massive results

This is a great book for anyone who wants to change or create a habit.

I know there are loads of ways to do that and this tiny habits way arguably is just another one

However it does actually work and it’s easy to understand

There’s even a free 5 day Programme that’ll let you test drive the method

So what’s stopping Yiu from doing it?

One to avoid

I am an avid reader of habit and focus based books, so I was really looking forward to this. Unfortunately, I found it so difficult to listen to that, after struggling through the first few chapters, I admitted defeat. Firstly, the narrator speaks really slowly with a weird intonation, which makes the book hard to listen to and unnecessarily long. Next, the content is far too drawn out and convoluted. The author seems to take good basic concepts, and, to make them his own, complicates them with rambling anecdotes, unusual terminology, and impractical solutions. I'd suggest listening to Atomic Habits by James Clear instead, it's far better in my opinion.

Buy it, Read it, Put it into practice - it works!

B J Fogg lays out his behaviour model and teaches you how to use it. He is not just another chump with a system to sell. He is a renowned behaviour scientist based at Stanford and if you follow the instructions you will be able not just to understand the model but to put it to work... and it really works!

Life changing, one celebration at a time

This book teaches the skills of change. No matter where you stand on the nature or nurture debate- this book tells us how- by nature- our mind can be hacked to embrace and propel change. Changing what we do and consequently who we are. While there are many books on each specific area- for example. how to eat better or how to manage your finances, this book is more fundamental: how do you actually change your day to day behaviour so that you succeed to eat better or manage your money better. I have worked with the book for few months now and have succeeded in cultivating many new behaviours in my life. The principal I found most ground breaking was the importance of celebration in the formation of new habits. These are not empty, out of thin air, meaningless 'positive affirmations', but rather- well prescribed and tuned moments of shine, that wire in the new habits.
Get this book if you want to have a better life. This just might be the route forward.

The best habits book so far

I’ve read lots of habit building formula books but this is by far the most likely to work. I’ve already got a couple of new habits formed thanks to this book and feel confident to take on more with the simple skills learned.

Perfect distillation of why we do behaviors

I heard BJ Fogg on curiosity daily podcast. what he said seemed at odds with alot of other behavior change models currently out there + well articulated I was sure this was worth exploring. Bought the book . but I find audiobooks easier so true to tiny habits I bought that with my audible credit. BJ s book is grounded in his academic research , so backed by his science.
I found that it explained alot of my behaviors good and not so good , so it gave a framework for me to understand my and others behaviors and gave me the tools to design and change my behavior . so the journey starts , this one has yielded results already, and feels like its a real game changer . the authors reading ,I found initially abit slow so I speeded it up but now I put it back to original speed, its somehow worked out better that way after a few listens. You also incidentally might notice that BJ has the personal touch.

I needed a bike powered phone to listen to this

Although I was really drawn in by the narrator/authors story about his voice at the beginning, the very systematic and methodical approach soon turned this into a snooze-fest. I loved the story about the bike powered TV but I felt I sometimes needed a bike powered phone to listen to this on Audible (and I was already listening during my daily walks). Although sound methodologies are referred to, I didn't like the fact that these strategies seemed to be given names by the author. I suppose it's understandable but I felt a bit like I was in a factory having it all explained to me in so many easy steps how the process works. The repeated sniggers/snickers were also off-putting and only served to distance me further from the author. I only got as far as most of the way through chapter 8 (with a bit of skipping to get there) before deciding I'd heard more than enough.
I suspect this title is more readable in hard copy form than it is listenable via Audible - at least I hope it is. I definitely didn't find it to be a good choice to listen to on a nature walk though.

Great content but resources are missing from the PDF

Great book but the fact that some of the resources that the author mentions should be in the PDF is reducing my “ability” to do the tiny habits method. For example the flow chart mentioned 54 minutes into chapter 3. There are several other resources missing. It’d be great if someone could go through and troubleshoot that as it is a blight on an otherwise excellent work. Particular a blight on a book about making things easier to do.

Brilliantly simple techniques.

Loved the book. Have recommended it to my adult children for them, their children and workplaces. Am putting into practice for myself and extremely pleased with the results. I increased narration speed very slightly (about 1.10 instead of 1.0) as I found 1.0 just a bit too slow for me.

Optimistic

This book lays down a clear plan to guide a change in behaviour. After years of failed attempts to change deeply ingrained behaviours and habits I now feel that there is real hope I can implement the changes I would like to make. Thank you BJ for sharing your work and giving me hope that it is not too late!

The group changes bits seem to be a bit.. idk - idealistic? Just in the sense that we all have limited energy, and it can be hard enough to invest in your own change. But loved everything else.
