- a more organized, clarified treatise on habits. Ultimately, this stuff is just as good as his blog and his language or tone doesn't change much (although he gets a bit basic at points, likely assuming you haven't been reading his stuff for years already). I feel like I'm sitting down with him and saying "hey, what's with your obsession with habits? why is it such a big deal in your life and how do you apply this obsession?". And getting a knowledge bomb of an answer. What you really see by the end of the book is
#1 How far Tynan has gone to integrate habits & in EVERY form of his life.
#2 How obvious the benefits & long term ramifications of this level of intensity & commitment to habits you know matter to you.
An example & a clear, interesting, demonstrable explanation for becoming...you know...superhuman by habit.
If you're not sure if you'll enjoy the book, just read a half-dozen blog posts at tynan dot com. If you like those, buy the book. If you don't, don't buy it expecting it to be different.
Unquestionably worth well more than $5
Even though I am quite a bit older than the author, I have found that he has a lot to teach me. He writes not only about how to incorporate new habits into your life, but also why you would want to. As a result of reading this book, I have noted several habits I want - and need - to get moving on. And now I know how best to do just that! In addition, the author gives a list of recommended habits that he thinks will improve anyone's life, and how to go about adding them. Fortunately for me, several of these habits exist already in my repertoire, and I am glad to note that I don't have to or need to "load" them as well.
There are a few typos in this book. As a writer myself, I know how hard it is to catch everything. I have no doubt that Tynan will fix the few that have appeared, and I do not find the quantity of typos to be high enough to be distracting. The message he transmits is more important than a few typos (and I don't often say that - those who know me know that I am a harsh critic of errors.)
If you have a need, or just a desire, to improve your life, especially if you want to do it in a systematic and orderly way, causing the least trouble for yourself, this is definitely the book for you. I absolutely do recommend it.
This book is powerful. I've read many, many books about habits. Superhuman by Habit is the most practical guide I've read for implementing and sticking with new habits. Take habit triggers, for example. I had read about them ad nauseum in other works, and sure, I understood them intellectually and would occaisonally try them out. After reading Tynan's book, though, I actually set up a set of triggers for the morning that have had a huge impact on my productivity already. I'm not kidding when I say that the few weeks since reading this book have been the most productive I've had all year, and I have no interest whatsoever in changing back, because this new, productive pattern of behavior is now easier for me than the slightly slovenly way I used to start my morning.
I'm probably starting to sound like a crazy brand evangelist at this point, but look, just buy the book, it's not too expensive, and not too much of a time commitment. If you read it and implement Tynan's points, you will experience dramatic improvements, built up slowly and comfortably.
But with life experience, and reading material like this book, I now understand that carefully chosen habits can transform our lives and propel us toward our most important goals. Seemingly impossible dreams can be slowly, and sometimes quickly, achieved through the discipline of good habits.
Tynan explains in this book that the process of building a habit is the initial investment, but once the habit is established, the positive results are cumulative, like compound interest. So even though performing habits can sometimes be boring, the huge dividends they pay are well worth it.
Read this book - It'll change your life in all the right ways. :)
