Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones

Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones

By James Clear. Avery. 2018

Welcome to Readers’ Advisory!  Did you know that reading for pleasure increases student and all-around success? 

New Year’s resolutions are always challenging, and lucky for us, this book will guide us into new habits with a minimum of effort.  That’s right!  It’s the small changes that add up to big accomplishments.

According to James Clear, habits are the small decisions we make and actions we perform every day.  Our life is essentially the sum of our habits.

As a result of our habits, we can become happy and successful or the opposite.  What we think about and do each day, i.e. our habits, result in the type of person we become, the things we believe about ourselves, and how we portray ourselves to the world.

This book is one of the 250,000 eBooks in our library collection, available 24/7. 

Here is a short video that will introduce the book, and show how to access all eBooks.
