Do you want to improve in some areas of ​​your life but do not know where to start? Maybe it depends on some habit you should change? Bob Savar’s Breakable Habits: Proven and Powerful Methods for How to Quit Smoking, Eating Healthy, Losing Weight, and Breaking Bad Habits is perfect if you want to achieve something different and believe that breaking old habits is the first step toward lasting change. In this well-researched and inspiring book, the author clarifies how habits are formed, helps you identify bad ones, and helps you build good ones through strategy and persistence. Savar will also explain why it is important to have a support community, how to manage setbacks, how to organize your surroundings to maintain good habits, and much more.

Breakable Habits shares many concepts that, until now, I had found scattered throughout various texts. This is the first strong point of the book because readers can concentrate on the topics and get the maximum benefit without having to do more research (although the author suggests further reading for those who wish to learn more). Because Bob Savar has thoroughly analyzed habits, readers can easily grasp the several stages of their formation and learn how to keep or break them. I appreciate how the discussion broadens one's perspective by examining the environment and the possibility of having a support community because, often, these aspects are neglected. All these qualities make Breakable Habits a worthwhile read for those who wish to improve in one or more areas of their lives. I heartily recommend it.

Both good and bad habits influence our lives profoundly. Breakable Habits by Bob Savar discusses issues such as how habits are formed, how they can be changed, and how to reinforce good habits. Habits are automatic responses to specific environmental cues. The habit loop consists of three key elements: cue, routine, and reward. Things that influence our habits include the environment. Our surroundings expose us to things that eventually shape who we are. Self-reflection is key to understanding and transforming habits. For ultimate results when addressing bad habits, the root cause should be identified, and once a bad habit has been removed, a positive one should be put in place to fill the vacuum created. People should also focus on gradual change.

One of the greatest strengths of Breakable Habits by Bob Savar is the numerous references provided, which make it excellent at passing on the intended message. It also provides the reader with a variety of other books to research more about habits and related topics. I also loved how Bob encouraged readers to leverage the available technology. The provided mobile applications will be very helpful to many people who were not aware of their existence. The examples given were also very practical and offered an easy way for the reader to implement the concepts being discussed. The systematic analysis made sure there was no room for confusion for the reader. This is a great self-help book, and I look forward to reading something else by this author.
