I feel as if I finally have a road map to my mind. Not only did I learn insight in to peoples' social habits, I had some great laughs along the way. Thank You Mike & Charles.
I found it interesting and educational, this is not a step by step formula to how change habits and be a better you but rather deeper lesson and understanding of how the brain works and habits are formed. He lost me a few times with so many examples and unrelated details but over all it was a very good. I will listen to a few chapter again, I recommend it to those interesting in learning about habits.
It doesn't take the habit only as a subject but explain it using business, politics , data etc.
It's a great book for marketers and those how crave to change habits.
would have liked to have heard more concrete examples of the methodology in use. Still, the book provides s template to follow snd experiment with yourself. I didn't feel the comparison of the sleep walker and the gambler added anything but maybe on a second listening I would change my mind. I would give it 3.5.
this is a great book that teaches a lot on how habits are formed and work. but the book is 90% fluff material. this could easily be condensed down to a good hour, maybe two if you want some more stories and examples. but this length was a little unbearable. I didnt need to listen about febreeze for two hours to understand a habit.
struggled to finish this book. it was nice, but repetitive. great topics, and you definitely walk away with a better understanding of habits.
Some parts where a little slow to develop, but overall an excellent look into how habits work and how to change them!
I liked the way he broke down how big companies like Target use our data to predict our buying habits and send us coupons or sales deals that secretly make us want to buy certain products!
I will definitely listen to this again and I will recommend it to friends and family!
By studying our habits and the habits of others we gain awareness and the power to choose and change. A key element of affecting the habit loop (craving-cue habit reward) is believing you can change it. Simple clear objectives such as safety can drive good habit change.
If freedom comes through choice, choosing what habits to cultivate and excavate is an excellent place to begin.
This book offers examples of habits gone good and bad and how to recognize and effect them.
