Charles Duhigg’s Smarter Faster Better is an examination of both personal and corporate improvement. As in his previous book, The Power of Habit, Duhigg blends personal anecdotes with the research that explains why we do things the way we do- and how we can do it better.
The chapters (Motivation, Teams, Focus, Goal Setting, Managing Others, Decision Making, Innovation, and Absorbing Data) cover a lot of material. I listened to this on audio and found myself losing the thread of the bigger narrative more than once, but every section had either a fascinating story or a new mental tool to add to my box.
If you are a fan of The Power of Habit, One Small Step Can Change Your Life, or Atomic Habits, you will also enjoy Smarter Faster Better.
