Summary Description

In The Power of Habit, Charles Duhigg explained “why we do what we do.”  Now, in Smarter Faster Better, he applies the same relentless curiosity to explain “how we can improve doing what we do.” It is a groundbreaking exploration of the science of productivity, which can help anyone succeed with less stress and struggle, and to get more done without sacrificing what we care about most—to become smarter, faster, and better at everything we do.

Duhigg draws on the latest findings in neuroscience, psychology, and behavioral economics. Then he integrates the experiences of CEOs, educational reformers, four-star generals, FBI agents, airline pilots, and Broadway songwriters into a painstakingly researched explanation of why the most productive people, companies, and organizations don’t merely act differently’ they view the world, and their choices, in profoundly different ways.

Most importantly, they know that productivity relies on making certain choices. The way we frame our daily decisions; the big ambitions we embrace and the easy goals we ignore; the cultures we establish as leaders to drive innovation; the way we interact with data: These are the things that separate the merely busy from the genuinely productive.

At the core of Smarter Faster Better are eight key productivity concepts explain why some people and companies get so much done.
