I was working on translating the Amazon page for Atomic Habits and I ran into this sentence:


Does this seem like a correct translation?

As soon as it was published, it became popular worldwide. The business, exercise, education, and weight-loss industries all use this practical habit formation guide.

Does 實作指南 mean practical guide?

Both the translation and you are correct. Note the full title of the guide is "習慣養成實作指南".

Note: The original book title is "Tiny Changes, Remarkable Results - Automic Habits." (An Amazon eBook). I think it could be translated more close to the original, such as "小改變大成果 - 好習慣養成實作指南".
