Helpful albeit fluffy
All in all it was good, not great. Nothing bad about it, but nothing fantastic either. There was a small lack of inflection in the narration which may have added to the book. This since there are so many stories.
Reptition! I think the section about replacement habits and repeating them to lay a new framework for a productive habit was very useful.
I think that the general main ideas of each section are good points. I think these points are lost a little bit in the highly detailed stories that kind of digress from the point being made. This made me lose interest on several different chapters including ones towards the end.
Great interesting book.
Lots of case studies relating to some aspect of habits which are at the core of most activities. My favorite story was maybe the one about Hey Ya! and its stickiness, but found great little nuggets of knowledge which I felt compelled to divulge in numerous scenario's.
As always narrator Mike Chamberlain does a great job at making what could otherwise be dry interesting.
Yes: Cue, routine, reward: the habit loop.
Habits are malleable, if you are aware of them.
I have this book in hardcover, and wanted to reread it, so with a long drive ahead, I decided to get the audio book. The reader has an annoying voice, but when he imitates women's voices, it actually sounds like nails on a chalkboard to me. This is a non-fiction book, there's no need for a dramatic reading.
Signal and Noise
The Queue -> Routine -> Reward process is simple and always interesting to look for when attempting to spot a habit
Well worth your time
I did not enjoy Mike Chamberlain as a narrator. His voice is tinny and unpleasant to listen to. When my husband heard it, he recalled that he had listened to another book he narrated and avoided his books.
Not likely. It was interesting at first, but then just goes on and on and on. I don't think I'll finish it.
Not a chance.
The book was very surprising. It brought to light so many reason for the habits that we have and also tips to change them!
I have not listened to anything else by Mike Chamberlain, at this time; however, he did an awesome job with this book.
I haven't read the book so I couldn't say for certain.
Brain mapping. Fascinating stuff!
No, it's not intended to, at least that's my opinion. It was a good book though.
Recommend this to anyone.
Yes, I would read again and did. I even took notes.
Not sure if there was a moment per say. I particularly like the objective look the author took regarding AA and why it works to the extent it does. It was brilliant.
I guess, kind of indifferent about the performance. Sometimes he tried too hard but I am not saying that was a bad thing.
Yes, but didn't, too long. I broke it up in three chunks just like the author wrote it in three chunks.
I can't wait till the author has another book out because I am certain he will keep it objective, scientific, relevant and interesting. Good Job.
I d listen again
The book tells you how a habit is formed, how you can use this information to change bad habits to good ones and how you can form new habits.
I may read another book by these authors; it totally depends on the subject.
This was nonfiction. It did have a lot of interesting research and information about habits. I would have given it a 3.5 if there was such a rating.
Didn't is pronounced didn't, not didint. Wouldn't is pronounced wouldn't not wouldint. Narrator had a stilted style but it wasn't annoying except for pronunciation of contractions.
Good book with lots of interesting info.
