The Michael Phelps story really inspired me. Hearing that he broke a world record without being able to see through his water-filled goggles really hit home to me. He developed the habit of visualizing the finish of his races and even practiced in the dark so that he was prepared for something really is incredible.
Great book and great voice acting as well. The stories throughout the book are the perfect length to keep you interested throughout without a lull.
Honestly, this book kept me engaged. Gave me a TON of scientific research to back up the statements and it all made sense. I would and will actually recommend this book to many people.
I will also look at this authors other work.
Definitely read this book if you are interested in habits, getting a better understanding of how and why they develop. !! (really good examples of common day items are included..... Not just random obscure things that happen in laboratories that you don't care about and getting bored hearing about.)
I urge everyone who reads this to read this book. It is the answer to whatever habit ails you. I thank God I found it and can't wait to listen to its wise lessons again and hopefully can one day change my life and by doing so the world around me. This is empowerment at it's finest.
Met my expectation, had a lot of good take aways and insight I think anyone could relate to. Whether you want to improve your habits or remove bad ones, this book will help you realize your internal potential and how to retrain your responses. Highly recommend
I love that I now know the history of the science behind the modern day thought on habit formation. This book is thorough and practical. A must-read for anyone struggling with habits (everyone, right?).
