James has an extremely direct and readable style. He's clearly a student of human nature and uses a wealth of examples that can give you enough to get started with immediately.
The opening story of an injury from baseball may be traumatising for some squeamish readers, but it shows the amazing courage that James had as a very young man. I believe his extraordinary dedication and fidelity to writing and to learning about how we make or break our habits was enough to give this long-lasting gift of this book to the world.
Atomic Habits seems to be perfectly tailored to this age of distraction, and he gives advice for everybody on how they can rise above the clutter and noise.
