Excellent insight into human behavior. Very enlightening for why I do things that I do.
Is very easy to listen to and continues to keep my interest through the entire book.
There are some eye opening points in this book. There were several points, however that drug on & on, which could have been more effectively summarized. The narrator's quoting of conversations was quite annoying.
I enjoyed how the author used case studies to explain his points. The narrator had an enjoyable tone and on point vocal emphasis. Overall it was a good read, I am happy to put to use some of the more practical points.
My experience with The Power of Habit is largely biased by the context of multiple transition stages of my life. Though I would like to provide a thorough review, with balanced pros and cons, an attempt to diminish the life changing impact this writing has had on me during this time would be a disservice.
I listened to an hour-long chapter at a time while carrying out household chores. Each chapter strengthened my belief in how life shaping habits are, and while the book did not directly guide me to establish new habits, except in short tidbits, it gave me impetus to identify what positive tendencies I wanted to adopt, and the ultimate miracle of belief that creating repetitive patterns of action could change my mind, and in turn, change the way I live.
I'm on the path to being healthier, happier, and goal-oriented thanks to listening to this work in the midst of muddling through different choices I've made to change my life.
loved it. so much insight into one the strongest drivers of the world. by studying many sides of Habit formation and the science behind it, you will have a better understanding of how to effectively improve your personal and social life. all is contingent on your will power and belief ofcourse. amazing.
This book was a delight to listen to. Each chapter explained the neurology of habits through different and interesting case studies. It ranged from addiction, to marketing campaigns and how songs become popular on the radio. I highly recommend it.
The stories could have been much shorter and still do the trick.
But it does give a good idea about how to change a habit
