Once in a while, you read/listen to a book that shakes and forever changes the foundation of your core; This was one of those books for me. Duhigg does a beautiful job on educating the reader on the creation, implemenation, and uses of habits; all in a very simple language everybody can understand. He begins by describing them in a personal level, and even goes to describe the habits of the country. Great book, WORTH THE MONEY!
Not much story, his progression is nice though.
Great job, he speaks smoothly.
I would highly recommend this book. I only picked it on a whim. I had a short 1.5 hour trip to take and by the time I got to my destination - I did not want to turn this off. It was chalked full of research and examples of how our Habits impact our lives. I was able to take away some life changing information. I actually bought the book after listening to the whole audio so that I could reference back to it. Very enjoyable!
The content is amazing! I feel empowered and more introspective after listening to this book.
No, I would recommend listening to chunks in order to really digest the important information.
Intriguing, informative and thought provoking
I think I can make more progress on my own habits that I would like to change
Because I read this book
Might read it again too
This is now one of my favorite books. It shows us how to change our bad habits by replacing it with a different or better habit. It shows the process of changing our bad habits by doing it one habit at a time and helps us determine why we have the habits we do and what reward we are getting from the habit. I have already been changing my bad habits by changing one bad habit at a time. This is an excelent book and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to change things in there life for the better.
Insights on how habits form, how to change, them and examples from history - Tony Dungy, Rosa Parks, Alcoholics, Gamblers, Michale Phelps, and companies.
Not all in one, but maybe 5. Not bad for a 10 hour book.
Great for getting ideas for how to change your own life and habits. However the stories and history is not as informative as I expected from a business book. But still a great listen and everyone can learn how to better their lifes from it.
A very interesting book. Very different than what I normal listen to. However extremely interesting how habit affects our day to day life AND how retail manipulates our habits to their benefit. Who knew so much study went into our every day to day purchases
The book was okay, but by not providing the appendix as a download PDF, the most important part of the book was left off; that is, how to make the power of habit work for me.
Brain Trust, because they do have the necessary information available in a download.
The narrator was okay.
I would have added the appendices. In this case, the regular book would have been a better use of my money than the Audible version.
