In Atomic Habits, James Clear draws upon his research into cognitive and behavioral sciences, along with his own life experience, to expound a simple four-step process for alleviating bad habits and creating lifelong positive ones.

In 2002, on the final day of his sophomore year, James Clear was hit in the face by a baseball bat. The physical and psychological damage he sustained meant halting a promising high school baseball career, and a long, worrisome recovery.
Yet Clear was determined to succeed. By creating small, daily habits, he was able to regain control of his life. He went on to receive the highest academic honor from his university, and was named one of only 33 Academic All-American student-athletes selected nationally each year.
Atomic Habits outlines four laws of behavior change and an actionable path towards breaking bad habits and creating lasting positive ones. Clear uses his life experiences as the catalyst, backing his findings up with science. Since its publication in 2018, this New York Times bestseller has sold over a million copies, and has rapidly become one of the most influential titles on habit change and productivity.
Changes that seem small and unimportant at first will compound into remarkable results if you're willing to stick with them for years.
