Not really, the points are good but the stories that lead to the ultimate useful information are way too long and boring, it makes your mind drift away so often. I fell that I was wasting time listening to so much padding.
Something more direct, something for busy people. Quick and useful
Shorten up the whole stories, just get to the point
No, I'll fall sleep
A mother, a wife, part-time professional trying to fit it all in...
this was a fascinating book! There is ALOT of technical and scientific information to get through and to understand, in order for you to really comprehend how a habit is formed and maintained. It encompasses historical evidence, psychology, and practical guidelines on how to change an existing habit. I believe that this book makes you be more mindful of your habit so that you can effectively change habits or use habits to your advantage. What a great foundation to learn, especially when embarking on new endeavors.
Yes. This book delivers insight, in depth understanding and real practical info.... If only bought one book this one would be worth a whole year subscription to Audible. Real Talk! :0)
I went from technical to laymen discussions uniformly. This made it a practical and applicable source of knowlege.
His narration was good... He applied animation to each scenario and topic. was not boring at all.
The Game and how to play it....
Let's just say: I Bought the book also.
You can tell a journalist, not a scientist, wrote this page-turner. Compared to other psychology books, the stories are both memorable and emotionally compelling. They're written like an article you'd get sucked into and remember years later. I can verify that, having listened to this book well over a year ago, and re-listening to it now, I not only remembered each story in its details but was excited when I heard it come on. Although at times, this distracts from the main point of the story, on the whole it makes a 10 hour audiobook go by much faster. (Although I still could have wished for a little shorter). I especially appreciated the Appendix, which describes how to apply the learnings of the book to your own life. The only other suggestions I'd have to improve this book would be to bullet point the learnings at the end of each chapter, and to get the narrator to chill out a little bit. He got into the voice acting a little too much when portraying certain protagonists.
A different narrator or narrating style. It feels forced like an audition for the lead role in a community theater production.The author takes FOREVER to get to the point. It feels like the stories drag on to prove a point. This isn't filled with info. It's a self-help book that should be printed in cheap paperback and bought in truck stops; and titled something with the word 'synergy' in it. If I had this in print, I would start skipping past the stories and move on to the stuff that matters-- which I assume is consolidated in a few bullet points at the end of each section.
Someone with less movement. Someone that could deliver the script rather than recite a teenage novel. He will put emphasis and pauses that deliver a theater performance, when I expect a constant cadence. I will listen at times with anticipation, when he emphasizes points I don't see as important or noteworthy. His influence feels like his own take on the book.
Yes bc allows you to listen to the book build a plan as you are listening
Made me take stock in me life and what I can do to change it focusing on "Keystone" habits a way to make changes
I like to read VERY much .. I'm obsessed with reading I don't have time to actually read a book so I've been a listener for three years now
it was well spent because it did have many examples to prove a point ( Habits can shape your life ) but it was too much examples that got me bored in the middle
no .. but I hope he improves by now
yes .. the narration was very good
not entirely .. it could be more intense and straight to the point
this book has some good points .. too bad it is covered with too much stories and examples that may or may not be related to the point
This book is extremely useful, both personally and professionally. There are key marketing concepts as well as powerful self-help tools. I have read this book several times.
It is so incredibly interesting. A real "page-turner" - if I was actually turning the pages.
I look forward to opportunities to listen and when I do, I hate turning it off.
Love the real-life examples given.
Very easy voice to listen to.
Informative, eye opening, surprising
No. I enjoy thinking about the heavy revelations that this book brings forth
