I purchased this book because I thought it would dive into the psychology of business, purchases, and effective marketing. This was one of the most boring things I've ever sat through. I am an avid reader and love the audible app but this may be the most boring book I've purchased in the recent memory.
The beginning chapters tell the most information. There is WAY TOO MUCH FLUFF in this book. WOW! I know more about black history, alcoholics anonymous, football and many other subjects that have nothing to do with habits and research. This book tried to do too much in regards to backstory.
Too slow. I listened at 1.25 speed.
The research: Cue Action Reward... change the action, keep the cue and reward. Find habits that will create other habits to help change the original habit.
I enjoy sci-fi, fantasy, non-fiction, historical fiction genres. Liked Hyperion, Stormlight, Mistborn, GoT. Last read: Born a crime
Author goes in detail with every anecdote and connecting with them through out the book. Sometimes leaving some stories one way and picking up later when showing a new concept. The idea is the same all the way but presented in different ways. The book could have been half the size if not for the repetition. Great material to study and understand.
The narrator was annoying to begin with, with his nasal tone. Eventually my brain tuned to it but there are so many better readers out there. Why this guy?
Using some of the concepts in the book, I was able to actually transform one of my time wasting habit into a productive one. Thank you.
if you are looking for a book that tells you exactly what to do this book is not for you. instead the author uses a number of stories to help show how habots are formed, in an effort to make them relatable and applicable to your own life. you dont need to have gone through the same dilemma to understand the gist of the story. it's more about interpretation
I kept seeing this book pop up everywhere so I decided to break up my LotR session with a quick listen to this. It is written the way I would write, clear sections almost made like bullet points. It makes you think hard on your own personal habits and how to solve them. It's the first I've listened to that I recommend to everyone I know!
There's nothing wrong with the performance but compared to other books I've listened to, his performance is more like listening to a book report.
Great easy listen. Very informative. I will be listening to this again soon. I am immediately starting on putting the knowledge I gained from this book to work.
Info was presented in a very logical format and easy to understand.
