Today, I have an exciting announcement: After three years of research and writing, my first full-length book will launch this fall.
I believe Atomic Habits is the most comprehensive and practical guide on how to optimize your habits and get 1 percent better every day. The book draws on proven behavior change ideas from biology, psychology, and neuroscience and explains them in a way that is easy to understand and apply. It also includes dozens of new stories and insights that I've never written about before.
I'm writing today to ask for your help. For years, I have shared articles for free on jamesclear.com and now I need your help to make this book a success.
If you are interested in supporting the book, here are 4 ways you can help:
1) Pre-order the book: The biggest thing you can do to help is to order the book now (Amazon | Barnes & Noble | IndieBound). (And if you know someone who would appreciate the book, I would be extremely grateful if you ordered one for a friend or family member too.)
2) Introductions: If you know someone in the media or someone who has a platform that reaches over 100,000 people (think: podcasts, email newsletters, radio, television, etc.) and you'd be willing to introduce us, fill out this form.
3) Interviews: If you have an audience of more than 100,000 people and you want to help promote the book, please fill out this form.
4) Bulk orders: If you are a leader on a team or in an organization and would like to consider buying copies of the book for each member of your group, fill out this form.
If none of those apply to you and you still want to help, stay tuned. I'll be sharing more information about the book and how you can help in the coming weeks.
Thank you so much. There is no doubt that Atomic Habits is the best thing I have ever created. I can't wait to share it with you.
I asked a few best-selling authors to read an early version of the book.
Here's what they said…
“A supremely practical and useful book. James Clear distills the most fundamental information about habit formation, so you can accomplish more by focusing on less.”
—Mark Manson, #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck
“James Clear has spent years honing the art and studying the science of habits. This engaging, hands-on book is the guide you need to break bad routines and make good ones.”

“A special book that will change how you approach your day and live your life.”
