First of all, the narrator was great. Very listenable voice. The stories that illustrate the main points of the authors thesis are good to great. Some are more interesting than others. Early on, though, I had to up the playback speed to 2x so I wouldn't bang my head against the wall. It seemed like the author took a very long time to reach the point. Finally, this is not a highly actionable book. The final chapter offers a brilliant framework for accurately accessing and decomposing your own habits but the previous ten chapters are mostly a collection of very long stories. I will have to get the book and read the final chapter more slowly before I can apply the principles toward personal growth.
