Join us to discuss The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg

Have you already read this book? Perhaps. Have you ever discussed the concepts presented with a group of your peers (super-bright, highly educated and analytical thinkers)? Probably not.

Join us for the January Book Club, where we’ll have a mini-happy hour from 5:30 – 6:00 pm and discuss the book from 6:00 – 7:00 pm. As one member recently put it, “SEAOI Book Club is my favorite!” Come see what makes our Book Club so awesome.

Book Description

Named One of the Best Books of the Year by The Wall Street Journal • Financial Times

In The Power of Habit, award-winning business reporter Charles Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. Distilling vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives that take us from the boardrooms of Procter & Gamble to the sidelines of the NFL to the front lines of the civil rights movement, Duhigg presents a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential. At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, being more productive, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. As Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

With a new Afterword by the author.
