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.
Not sure if I would buy another book from either of these authors
Most interesting was how this book bordered on delivering true insights. Least interesting is that the authors seemed more content to deliver very long stories about the power of habits rather than to give practical advise on how to change or replace habits.
Those with a prior understanding of changing habits would benefit the most.
Some of the stories, while compelling and interesting, left me asking "How can I apply this?" As of yet, I have not found the answer to that question
The book is very informative, but unlike a lot of other books this one isn't boring at all. The book is useful for anybody who wants to improve himself/herself continuously.
I'm listening to books while driving. Thus I cannot compare those two. I can say he really did a good job.
That we can, and maybe we should, take control of our habits, by knowing them and knowing what internal or external factors may positively or negatively affect them.
My next book is "Your Brain at Work."
It really explain the habits of human nature. You really get to understand how things are becoming habits and why they do. Most of all, you get to understand how to change them and what is working and what's not.
I broke a long standing habit one year ago and up until now I hadn't been able to figure out how it did it. This book gave me insight to answer the question.
The connection between ques, rewards and cravings
Filled with great examples and simple lessons you can implement immediately.
Stand by to be surprised...amazing how much of our life is simply habit. And even more amazing is how changing a small part of habit can have such profound impact.
Very eye opening
The examples and research were very powerful and helped dive deep into the meaning of why we do what we do.
I've started to look at everything I do and try to analyze why I do it. It's helped to establish new good habits while trying to re-train old/bad ones.
