Charles Duhigg is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter and author of "The Power of Habit," which has spent over two years on the New York Times best-seller list.
The Harvard Business School and Yale graduate, recently joined Just the Right Book Podcast to talk about his latest book, "Smarter Faster, Better: The Transformative Power of Real Productivity." "People often get tied up in being busy, rather than being productive," says Duhigg. His book explores how to get more done without sacrificing what we care about most.
Also in this episode, we hear from Cathy Langer, the director of buying for the Tattered Cover Book Store in Denver Colorado for our segment, "What's on the Front Table."
