I found this book to be very very hard to put down or not listen to I listen to it every day I'm going to commute to work home and back I found the source material and data to be extremely helpful and understanding the science of habitual actions exciting to know that habits can be identified and changed through understanding the process and to identify this book has motivated me with my own personal habits I want to change and I highly recommend it for other people who are looking to create good habits and eliminate bad habits
Absolutely. There was much to learn that couldn't all be absorbed on the first listen
The Narrators insipid and often feeble imitation of women's voices nearly made me turn off the recording numerous times. I find it hard to believe that every woman in his life could speak with such a timid, unsure and child like tone.
Incredibly frustrating and a disappointing imitation of these often strong and powerful woman his is supposedly speaking for.
The explanations of why people do the things they do in this book is opening and interesting. It is giving me a new way of looking at human factors problems at work and personal challenges in self improvement. I look forward to reading this again and trying to develop more insights into the things that need improving in my life.
The Michael Phelps story really inspired me. Hearing that he broke a world record without being able to see through his water-filled goggles really hit home to me. He developed the habit of visualizing the finish of his races and even practiced in the dark so that he was prepared for something really is incredible.
Great book and great voice acting as well. The stories throughout the book are the perfect length to keep you interested throughout without a lull.
Honestly, this book kept me engaged. Gave me a TON of scientific research to back up the statements and it all made sense. I would and will actually recommend this book to many people.
I will also look at this authors other work.
Definitely read this book if you are interested in habits, getting a better understanding of how and why they develop. !! (really good examples of common day items are included..... Not just random obscure things that happen in laboratories that you don't care about and getting bored hearing about.)
I urge everyone who reads this to read this book. It is the answer to whatever habit ails you. I thank God I found it and can't wait to listen to its wise lessons again and hopefully can one day change my life and by doing so the world around me. This is empowerment at it's finest.
