The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business

The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business Review

Los hábitos empiezan sin que nos demos cuenta, se instalan inadvertidamente y para cuando queremos librarnos de ellos se han convertido en rutinas inamovibles. A veces, surgen de un gesto cotidiano, como la sensación de relax que sentimos al llegar a casa y encender la tele. En ocasiones, se trata de hábitos inducidos, como usar dentífrico para cepillarse los dientes o utilizar ambientador.

Decidido a desentrañar la psicología y la neurología de nuestros hábitos más arraigados, el periodista de investigación Charles Duhigg recurre a los más recientes descubrimientos en materia cerebral para mostrar a los lectores cómo llegar a dominar los resortes que definen nuestras costumbres.

Charles Duhigg no sólo nos ayudará a cambiar nuestros malos hábitos por otros más constructivos sino que nos revelará facetas ocultas de nuestra vida corporativa y social.
