Great insights into the substance of mind and power of habit. Told through stories and good presentations of studies. A good listen!
Not sure. Now that I know the way he presents his findings I would have to be very interested in the topic. As for Chamberlain no strong opinion one way or the other.
Very easy to follow. Basic and intuitive. Nothing really unexpected or new.
I give him credit because the content does not lend itself for too much creativity.
From 1 to 10? No more than a 6
Realizing how much of our life we live based on habit made me realize how much I really miss of my life. This book was like a wake up call in part. O another hand it made me think about what are the habits I have in my daily life, and what are the ones that are bad and really want to change. I managed to quit smoking and make a habit out of keeping my house clean every day. My house now looks prettier. And I smell nicer.
Very good narration
This book can be used as a self development tool or just as another book to read. If you decide to use it as a self development tool it has a lot to offer. If you decide to use it as just another book to read, you will find out a lot of new things about how habits work. Either way, I enjoyed it.
So this audiobook was over 12 hours, but had a lively narrator (Mike Chamberlain) that made it super easy to stay engaged. While the author's stories may feel a little longer than needed at times, he always does a good job of driving the point home and tying it back to earlier lessons. Definitely one of the better "reads" I've made this year. Highly recommend. Already noticing a shift in my awareness of habits and how to attack them.
All of them so that we can get to the point of the book and hopefully learn something.
I doubt that the habits of human beings can be explained by long-winded anecdotes about Christian Corporate America. Duhigg is a good storyteller but he got carried away. Frustrating.
Sure, the first few hours.
The author gives a detailed account of developing good habits, and breaking bad ones. Its a very persuading read, with many examples and science behind habit-making in the mind. The first 3-4 hours of the read was simply superb, and the rest of the read is reinforcement of the first 3-4 hours. Nevertheless, I wish I came across this book sooner.
The only thing left is to find the habit you want to make, and the ones you want to break!
Very good vocal tone, not at all dramatic/musical like some books these days; but very compelling tones. Good use of pause, and good pace. I wish all narrators were as good as this.
Many ideas: how to make new habits, and when they will stick around; and how to break patterns and what to do when they resurface.
There were lots of examples of habits, good and bad, and how they were changed, but it does not give very much real advice on how to go about changing habits into ones you want to keep.
Looking for the power and passion within myself.
The title gives you an expectation of brief and concrete solutions on how to better your habits and the way you can practice them on your daily life. However the writer extends the book into many examples that don't necessarily conclude into a pin point solution. The book ends in a conclusion of how to make your habits stick and be better.. I would have just picked up the book and read the last paragraphs because it is just the essence of the book.
I would recommend the Power of Habit as a sample of consequences if you don't better your habits today!
Yes it did.
A little bit of disappointment
Still looking for a great form of habit book...
Yes I warmly want to recommend it.Never heard so much about changing and establishing habits. It's narrated in an entertaining way.
Stories and findings of researchers at well known Universities are presented in an entertaining way.
habits in personal life, corporations and cultures told in interesting stories
the way he explained habits with great examples
great performance, enjoyable and lively
made me want to keep listening
