Atomic Habits

by James Clear

Overall Book Review:

If you are looking for a hands-on, practical approach to habits, then this is the book for you.  This books is not science-y, like The Power of Habit, and that is articulated from the get-go.  This book is a quick and easy read.  Each chapter begins with an anecdote or narrative that illustrates the principle of the chapter; this enhances the accessibility of the content.  Even if the reader only cherry-picked a few ideas from this book, they would most likely find benefit.  Atomic Habits would also be a good book club read.

Although technically a non-fiction book that is aimed at the adult market, this would be a great read for teenagers interested in leveraging good habits.  Realistic, viable, pragmatic–this book is worth a read.

About the Reviewer

An accountant and CPA by profession, I found myself a book reviewer for Squeaky Clean Reads by happenstance. When the opportunity came to transform that website into Compass Book Ratings, I was excited to seize it and meld my business background with my love of books. As the mother of three teenage sons, I have read a large number of children and young adult books and I believe that there is great value in a content review service. As much as we would love to read everything our children read, there just isn’t enough time. I also appreciate being able to select books for myself that are really worth my precious and limited reading time. I believe there is a book out there for everyone–they just have to find it!
