Full of great information and research findings written in an interesting fashion. Also helpful life information for making and breaking habits. Overall excellent read / listen?
This book in compass some of the greatest ideas concerning the habit loop. I found this author to be intriguing, interesting, and captivating. I recommend this book to those interested in breaking habits or beginning new habits cycles.
I am not sure. The book was quite long for its content. It just has several stories of success viewed very one-sidedly and too stretched. It is apparently trying to motivate the reader and sell them this good feeling that everything is within reach if you have the right tools and approach but it only describes one approach. Or at least it claims to do so. In fact some of the things described as habits steer away from the initial description of habits that the book gives.
Overall it is quite enjoyable and the stories are fascinating but I feel it does not have enough practical value.
I am not familiar with a lot of narrators but I really dislike the way Mike Chamberlain imitates female voices.
Good read to and from places and for going on runs. I'd recommend it to anyone looking to confirm common sense and great case examples.
I loved this book. Loved the science behind habits and the brain, and loved how habits are broken down and analyzed. This gives me such curiosity and empowerment about changing my own habits and helping clients I work with (in health and wellness coaching) change theirs.
The book meanders. Begin reading with the appendix. It will help you frame the rest of the book.
Take notes of the important points and practical advice; there is plenty. Then return to the end of the book and update your notes to create an implementation to gain control of the habits that rule you.
