I found the insights in this book to be very helpful. Duhigg presents these findings in a very interesting way. I would recommend listening to the appendix (Chapter 11) first. In it the author gives a good overview of the book.
overall this was an interesting book that revealed some of the inner workings of habits. Some of it fits into the category of Captain Obvious while other parts of it truly help a person understand why they do what they do.
The stories in the book were interesting but it was quite boring at times. There was not enough helpful information to really be worth the read.
A powerful book that opened my insight about some automatic behaviors, and make me think about why I fo things in a certain way.
Overall a very interesting book and the narration is very clear and not monotonic so you won't lose interest.
This book is reminiscent of Malcolm Gladwell's work in that Duhigg uses a vast amount of anecdotal evidence to support his arguments.
It appears to be the case that there are many other reviewers with whom I share this opinion. I will leave it to them to provide further detail for you. However, I will propose one solution to this problem that I have not seen anyone else offer:
Skip everything but the appendix, which covers all of the necessary points in the book. You will save yourself a whole lot of time if your goal is to obtain worthwhile information rather than be regaled.
