The book has very interesting aspects of habit changing processes, and brings many tales wich are sure to make you think. But at the end, I felt a little abandoned to my own devices in order to change the habits of my life.
It's a really good book, it's entertaining in a historical sense and talks more about the history of certain habits. Not specific habits that could be applied too you, and the author explains why.
There are couple of moments that are moving in this book because all of the stories are about real people and what they've had to deal with.
Overall real good book.
This was recommended to me by a friend and I have already recommended it. I have already begun to use some of the information given in my personal life and my work.
Very interesting book. I think the word habit is stretched very thin to make it fit some cases, but overall I really enjoyed this book.
the book is perfectly written and the narrator has a wonderful way to capture your attention.
his performance is impeccable every time
a better understanding of my habits and very simple and straightforward way to modify them.

I bought this book for personal use, but soon found it had a great deal of information which I also found valuable as a marketer. Engaging information told through a series of stories. Highly recommended.
Not sure. I would definitely try to get a hold of a summary of another book.
The concepts are easy to follow. You can get them by reading the first third of the book and the appendix. The middle and the end of the book contained interesting but almost unrelated and unhelpful stories.
I love the Febreeze story.
My favorite scene is the investor meeting that turns into a safety meeting.
My life is changed.
I highly recommend for you and your bad habits ;)
Habits are not magic. Habits of every kind - from work habits, to athletics, to eating, to addictions - can be shaped. By accident or by intention, habits are built or changed every day.
This book provides a methodology for understanding and shaping habits. And it backs up the practicum with clearly understandable evidence.
Every trainer of any kind: sales trainers, sports coaches, people wanting to change their own daily habits, must study this!
I'm 63, and all my years of studying behavior, including a behavioral psych degree, this is the best source I've ever found for understanding and shaping habits... mine, my kids, anyone's.
In general the story is interesting and you do learn a bit about why we do the things we do.
