The Power of Habit:
Why We Do What We Do
in Life and Business
by Charles Duhigg. Random
House, 2012 ($28)

Once they are established,
it takes a hefty effort to overwrite
those neural connections. In The
Power of Habit, Duhigg demystifies the
brain processes involved in forming and altering
these mindless actions.
