“I have read countless bestselling, personal development, and leadership books, but none are as powerful as The Habit Mechanic. In my opinion, it is the missing piece of the ‘how to be your best’ puzzle. It will help you optimize your personal performance and leadership.

The book is packed with straightforward but powerful science-backed tools which have helped me, my family, and my businesses to thrive. I will use this book and the toolkit it provides for the rest of my life.” — Mike Jones, serial technology entrepreneur
