Narrator changes voice to imitate other people, and it is very annoying, especially when he squeaks to imitate women.
Yes, because it gets to the heart or science of what habits are and how to change them. And all of us have habits we wish we could change.
How to break down the components of what a habit consists of and how that is useful in altering or changing the habits we want to change in our life.
To date Mike Chamberlain is the best reader that I have had the pleasure of listening too. His reading is rich with inflection and appropriate speed and emotion for the context. I will be buying some other books in part based on his narration !
I recommend this book because it gives you examples of why habits form. By understanding how they form one can identify cues,routines,and rewards. Thus, this book makes it easier to understand how complex habits form; making it easier to prescribe them.
This is the first audio book I've listened to since I was a kid and I had forgotten why audio books are popular. If you have the time, reading is great, but for those that feel rushed the majority of the time, audio books are the way to go. I listened to most of this book while driving. I usually listen to music while driving or talk radio but I think I've found a new medium to devote that time to, especially on long trips.
I like that the story was about something that affects me without knowing it. I learned much about why my habits are and have been and how best to confront them and change them for the future.
He did an awesome job. Just all around great. There was one section that sounded like it had a slightly different production quality towards the end but that's not Mike's fault.
How to analyze my habits and how to change them.
First audio book in probably 25 years and it was a great experience. Definitely plan on listening to more.
Enlightening, Inspiring and Disturbing
The summaries of studies that had been completed and published were very interesting and supported the other parts of the book nicely.
I was a little disturbed by the tactics marketers use to market to people. I can't shop at Target now without finding an ulterior motive in everything they give/send me.
This book was an insightful read and really made me look at the things I do each day in a different way. It inspired me to attempt to change some of my own habits.
Relevant. Enlightening. Ear-Pricking.
I really enjoyed the segment on Tony Dungy where the implementation of habit change really showed itself. Truly brought home the power of a culture of practice and continual improvement, and the importance of belief.
Mike is a captivating narrator and is someone I would listen to regardless of the book.
Excellent and diverse information.
In depth inllustrations relating to history and every day experiences
Could've listened to more
Title doesn't do it justice, it is so much more,
The multiple illustrations across so many facets of life makes this books super understandable, even though it's rich in content.
The flow of this book is great. A thought is brought up and completed well with stories and scientific support.
I haven't listened to him, but I know that when he reads the girl parts, it's hysterical...
I very much enjoyed listening to how little habits can influence big things, the little wins are bigger than we think.
This was an amazingly written and well read book. I'd highly suggest it for anyone... whether they struggle with unwanted habits or are extremely self-disciplined, they'll enjoy the practical nature of this book both individually and in a social context.
I'm on my second listen with this. I've gotten a lot of help from it.
