Publisher's Summary

Discover: How to add dozens of positive changes to your daily routine
Want to improve your life, but don't have enough time? Right now you could easily think of a dozen ways to instantly improve your life. Odds are, these ideas will only take a few minutes apiece to complete. The problem? You might feel like there's not enough time to do all of them. One solution can be found using the power of "habit stacking."
One Routine and Multiple Habits = Habit Stacking
We all know it's not easy to add dozens of new habits to your day. But what you might not realize is it's fairly easy to build a single new routine. The essence of habit stacking is to take a series of small changes (like eating a piece of fruit or sending a loving text message to your significant other) and build a ritual that you follow on a daily basis.
Habit stacking works because you eliminate the stress of trying to change too many things at once. Your goal is to simply focus on a single routine that only takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete. Within this routine is a series of actions (or small changes). All you have to do is to create a checklist and follow it every single day. That's the essence of habit stacking.
In the book Habit Stacking: 97 Small Life Changes That Take Five Minutes Or Less, you will discover 97 quick habits that can instantly improve your life. Plus you'll discover how to create a simple routine (managed by a checklist) that you repeat on a daily basis. Even better, you'll discover a few tools that will keep you motivated and consistent. So even if you're completely stressed out, you'll still find the time and energy to complete these actions on a consistent basis.
By completing dozens of small habits on a daily basis, you'll be able to make giant leaps forward in your business, strengthen your personal relationships, stay on top of your finances, get organized and improve your health.

A good listen but I might need to get the paperback

The reader was very good; clear enunciation & good variety in intonation.

Overall I enjoyed this book and am already implementing one new routine with success. If your already familiar with FlyLady or Habit Hacker a lot of the 97 small things will be already known to you. However, the advantage of this book is the discussions on motivation, "ego depletion", and the explanation of building a routine.

As I was listening to the chapters that consist solely of the list of 97 small changes, I started to get frustrated that there wasn't a synopsis at the end of each chapter suggesting how a routine could be built. However, the final chapters contain all of this information and completely assuaged my quibble in this regard.
I'm not sure the list format is suitable for audio. I may find I'll want to get the paperback for ease of reference in the future when I'm ready to build more routines.

One small suggestion to the author/editor/publisher for an improvement in a future edition: in the actions identified for each habit may I suggest a distinction is made between the one-off action that is required to set-up the habit initially, and the action that is done when the habit is being repeated?
Thanks for a great book & an enjoyable "read"/listen.

Somewhat useful yet mixed with pop self-help ideas

What would have made Habit Stacking better?

First and foremost checking that there is no pop psychology claims as "look in the mirror and say to yourself positive affirmations" that were disproved a long time ago.
The idea of habit stacking itself is useful yet it could be described in 5 minutes with a couple of examples that are science based!

Would you ever listen to anything by S.J. Scott again?


Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Greg Zarcone?
