NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER From the author of The Power of Habit comes a
fascinating book that explores the science of productivity, and why
managing how you think is more important than what you think with an
appendix of real-world lessons to apply to your life. At the core of
Smarter Faster Better are eight key productivity concepts from motivation
and goal setting to focus and decision making that explain why some people
and companies get so much done. Drawing on the latest findings in
neuroscience, psychology, and behavioral economics as well as the
experiences of CEOs, educational reformers, four-star generals, FBI agents,
airplane pilots, and Broadway songwriters this painstakingly researched
book explains that the most productive people, companies, and organizations
don t merely act differently. They view the world, and their choices, in
profoundly different ways. A young woman drops out of a PhD program and
starts playing poker. By training herself to envision contradictory
futures, she learns to anticipate her opponents missteps and becomes one of
the most successful players in the world. A group of data scientists at
Google embark on a four-year study of how the best teams function, and find
that how a group interacts is more important than who is in the group a
principle, it turns out, that also helps explain why Saturday Night Live
became a hit. A Marine Corps general, faced with low morale among recruits,
reimagines boot camp and discovers that instilling a bias toward action can
turn even the most directionless teenagers into self-motivating achievers.
The filmmakers behind Disney s Frozen are nearly out of time and on the
brink of catastrophe until they shake up their team in just the right way,
spurring a creative breakthrough that leads to one of the highest-grossing
movies of all time. What do these people have in common? 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. InThe Power of Habit, Pulitzer Prize winning
journalist Charles Duhigg explained why we do what we do. In Smarter Faster
Better, he applies the same relentless curiosity, deep reporting, and rich
storytelling to explain how we can improve at the things we do. It s a
groundbreaking exploration of the science of productivity, one that can
help anyone learn to 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. Praise for Smarter Faster Better A pleasure
to read . . . Duhigg s skill as a storyteller makes his book so engaging to
read. The New York Times Book Review Not only will Smarter Faster Better
make you more efficient if you heed its tips, it will also save you the
effort of reading many productivity books dedicated to the ideas inside.

behind why some people and businesses are not as efficient as others.

reporting and deft analysis, presenting a wide range of case studies . . .
