Charles Duhigg, a native of New Mexico, has been an investigative reporter for the New York Times since 2006. He studied history at Yale and received an MBA from Harvard Business School. Before becoming a journalist, he worked in private equity and, “for one terrifying day,” he  was a bike messenger in San Francisco.

These days, Duhigg’s articles appear in the magazine and the business section of the Times.  Golden Opportunities  looked at how companies take advantage of the soaring number of older Americans. The Reckoning  studied the causes and outcome of the international financial crisis. Toxic Waters examined pollution in America’s waters and the response of regulators. The iEconomy, his most recent series, is about Apple.

Duhigg lives with his wife, a marine biologist, and their two sons in New York. His sons, he says, have a few habits he’d like to break, namely waking up at 5AM and flinging food.  

And then there are Duhigg’s own habits. He says he can acquire bad habits—mainly those involving fried foods—in minutes. But, through writing this book, he says his own habits have changed. Since he started working on The Power of Habit, he’s lost 30 pounds and now runs every other morning as part of his training for the NY Marathon.

“I'm much more productive,” writes Duhigg. “And the reason why is because I've learned to diagnose my habits, and how to change them.”
