Trigger. Action. Reward. (duh)
Duhigg did a great job of putting the obvious in perspective. Everything seemed breakthrough as he said it, then so obvious after I thought about it. He simplified a very complicated subject and I couldn't wait to get back on the road to listen to more.
Lots of driving has drove me to fall in love with audiobooks.
Powerful Inter-human Information
The amount of factual and storied information that illuminates our habits.
Mike does a great job with tone
E.P.'s story is one that does the best to explain how our habits drive our life. It brings to light that we all have a place in our brain that has us do things without thinking.
Great book. I will be listening to it again in the near future to drive some of the points home, but this book has opened my eyes to understanding and controlling habits. This is a great benefit for my life.
I really enjoyed this book...mostly. The beginning where habit, what it is and where it resides was very interesting. Everything from personal habit to work habits and how one can work to change those habits I found intriguing and fascinating. However, the part about social habits I found boring and had a hard time getting through. Understanding community or societal social habits would probably be interesting to many, but that just wasn't what I was looking for myself. But outside of those social habits chapter(s)...(which seemed inordinately long me), I really enjoyed the book. In fact, I had a hard time staying away from it for any length of time. Almost like a habit....
Yes I would. Although I found parts dull, many would probably not. There a lot of good stuff in here, either for someone just interested in habits in general, or someone trying to figure out how to change some of those bad habits we all carry around with us.
I though he was great. If I didn't know better I would have thought he wrote the book. The performance was great. I felt like I was listening to someone who was actually interested in what he was telling, and that made me enjoy it all the more.
We are all a bundle of habits, and recognizing habits is the beginning of changing them.
Showing us how to change our own habit behavior.
I purchased this book so that I could see about changing my own habits. This book drones on with example after example of how habits are formed but really says nothing about changing them. This book reads like someone thesis project in college including adding extra text to make the book thicker. Examples that could be written in about a paragraph go on and one for ever. Case studies that are 45 mins long just to make one small example.
I usually force myself to listen to a book all the way through. I was about 75% done with this book when I just had to stop listening. I found myself in traffic yelling "Get on with it" and "ok I get the concept" I picked a few useful ideas up but it could have been a small informational flyer and not a book.
A top 10
No other book has taken habits and broke them down with real research like this one.
It was more the thought then the scene of how your mind has the power to hold information that were part of a habit even when you are not aware of the information.
no, I listen to books as I drive. Parts of this book I stopped and re-listened before moving on to the next chapter.
Has many Practical examples, scientific, gives the concept in a well structured flow. The narrator made it so interesting and easy to grasp
No, it was great
All of it was perfect and moving, now i could know the secret of habits, this could positively change my life
Great Book, well read

It is amazing how Charles Duhigg has remarkable brought out the secret power of habit that we all can clearly develop over time. After reading this book I realized that I was kind of doing these habit forming tasks but unconsciously. Now doing them consciously helps in faster habits and also fosters a feel-good pattern.
Amazing book. Thanks
I plan on listening to the book again as soon as I finish the final two chapters.
I found this book amazing. I think it is structured in a very simple and easy way to follow and develop for myself on that journey of habits.
How am I able to break my own paradigms and understand human nature and its behaviors.
Love It! Great for understanding the framework of how habits develop and how to change them, both personal, individual, team, company wide and community habits
I love the story of Tony Dungee and how he made his team win by showing that tapping into instinct and flawless execution can be superior to complex strategies
The author created impactful lasting characters
I review the content and stories constantly
