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
Simple and mediocre psychology. I saw an interview with the author and got excited. If you have a basic education in psychology, this is pretty much useless. I stopped about half way through about listening to basics that kept repeating themselves. Thoroughly useless simplistic drivel with a hit of science.
This book is in my top five and I go back and relisten to chapters frequently.
By fully exploring each layer of the material, this book memorably teaches and relates so that when you get to the end you really get it and understand the science that got you there.
Helpful albeit fluffy
All in all it was good, not great. Nothing bad about it, but nothing fantastic either. There was a small lack of inflection in the narration which may have added to the book. This since there are so many stories.
Reptition! I think the section about replacement habits and repeating them to lay a new framework for a productive habit was very useful.
I think that the general main ideas of each section are good points. I think these points are lost a little bit in the highly detailed stories that kind of digress from the point being made. This made me lose interest on several different chapters including ones towards the end.
Great interesting book.
Lots of case studies relating to some aspect of habits which are at the core of most activities. My favorite story was maybe the one about Hey Ya! and its stickiness, but found great little nuggets of knowledge which I felt compelled to divulge in numerous scenario's.
As always narrator Mike Chamberlain does a great job at making what could otherwise be dry interesting.
Yes: Cue, routine, reward: the habit loop.
Habits are malleable, if you are aware of them.
I have this book in hardcover, and wanted to reread it, so with a long drive ahead, I decided to get the audio book. The reader has an annoying voice, but when he imitates women's voices, it actually sounds like nails on a chalkboard to me. This is a non-fiction book, there's no need for a dramatic reading.
Signal and Noise
The Queue -> Routine -> Reward process is simple and always interesting to look for when attempting to spot a habit
Well worth your time
I did not enjoy Mike Chamberlain as a narrator. His voice is tinny and unpleasant to listen to. When my husband heard it, he recalled that he had listened to another book he narrated and avoided his books.
Not likely. It was interesting at first, but then just goes on and on and on. I don't think I'll finish it.
Not a chance.
