Listen to the first chapter and the appendix at the end, and you'll get all the useful information you need. Everything else is unnecessary fluff and a colossal waste of time.
I've never been so engrossed while learning so much. Possibly one of the most important books I'll ever encounter. If you want to live by design and not by default, this book gives you the awareness and the tools. If you lead an organization, if you have a child to raise, or if you simply want to make changes in your own life, you will benefit tremendously from this book. Here, thousands of hours of research are delivered simply & concisely with story after story that enable emotional connections to what is being learned. Brilliant and riveting. I was so captivated, I couldn't put it down. Not my usual habit. ;-)
Appreciate the writer to pinpoint what exactly one needs to change in one's habit. i.e. emotional triggers/routine.
But the narrator hovers over a simple point for far too long with a running commentary to illustrate a point.
Way too many anecdotes have made this book read like a news bulletin.
Really interesting exploration into the background processes that shape out lives. Lays the groundwork for showing how to apply this understanding. If you intentionally change your habits, you significantly change the trajectory of your life.
