I'm not sure
Not sure either
He did a great job.
No no no no please no
The book had too many examples that were off the main focus of the story. I think it could've had more concepts and less "this is the story of a man that blah blah..."
really quite incredible
the guy who wrote this knows so much stuff, but somehow tells it to you in a way that keeps you totally glued to the thing. it's a finely woven, and even suspenseful, trail of interesting stories leading to one surprising fact after another. i can't believe how entertaining a book about human habits could be. it's a life changing book, but it's fun too!
he's very good at this
Fan of non-fiction, history and leadership philosophy.
The reader was a nice bonus to this interesting and insightful listen. The author did a great job of making a lot of research sound fascinating.
It taught me a lot of lessons I still use one year later. I am currently listening to it a second time.
Pick up this book!
Concise, compelling, breadth
The concept that we're so unaware of the many habits that direct our actions in our lives on a daily basis
Narrator's voice is a little creepy at first but after a few chapters, the content more than makes up for it
Trigger. Action. Reward. (duh)
Duhigg did a great job of putting the obvious in perspective. Everything seemed breakthrough as he said it, then so obvious after I thought about it. He simplified a very complicated subject and I couldn't wait to get back on the road to listen to more.
Lots of driving has drove me to fall in love with audiobooks.
Powerful Inter-human Information
The amount of factual and storied information that illuminates our habits.
Mike does a great job with tone
E.P.'s story is one that does the best to explain how our habits drive our life. It brings to light that we all have a place in our brain that has us do things without thinking.
Great book. I will be listening to it again in the near future to drive some of the points home, but this book has opened my eyes to understanding and controlling habits. This is a great benefit for my life.
I really enjoyed this book...mostly. The beginning where habit, what it is and where it resides was very interesting. Everything from personal habit to work habits and how one can work to change those habits I found intriguing and fascinating. However, the part about social habits I found boring and had a hard time getting through. Understanding community or societal social habits would probably be interesting to many, but that just wasn't what I was looking for myself. But outside of those social habits chapter(s)...(which seemed inordinately long me), I really enjoyed the book. In fact, I had a hard time staying away from it for any length of time. Almost like a habit....
Yes I would. Although I found parts dull, many would probably not. There a lot of good stuff in here, either for someone just interested in habits in general, or someone trying to figure out how to change some of those bad habits we all carry around with us.
I though he was great. If I didn't know better I would have thought he wrote the book. The performance was great. I felt like I was listening to someone who was actually interested in what he was telling, and that made me enjoy it all the more.
We are all a bundle of habits, and recognizing habits is the beginning of changing them.
Showing us how to change our own habit behavior.
I purchased this book so that I could see about changing my own habits. This book drones on with example after example of how habits are formed but really says nothing about changing them. This book reads like someone thesis project in college including adding extra text to make the book thicker. Examples that could be written in about a paragraph go on and one for ever. Case studies that are 45 mins long just to make one small example.
I usually force myself to listen to a book all the way through. I was about 75% done with this book when I just had to stop listening. I found myself in traffic yelling "Get on with it" and "ok I get the concept" I picked a few useful ideas up but it could have been a small informational flyer and not a book.
A top 10
No other book has taken habits and broke them down with real research like this one.
It was more the thought then the scene of how your mind has the power to hold information that were part of a habit even when you are not aware of the information.
no, I listen to books as I drive. Parts of this book I stopped and re-listened before moving on to the next chapter.
Has many Practical examples, scientific, gives the concept in a well structured flow. The narrator made it so interesting and easy to grasp
No, it was great
All of it was perfect and moving, now i could know the secret of habits, this could positively change my life
Great Book, well read
