Two young fish are swimming along when an elder fish greets the two guppies with a welcoming, "Nice water today, isn't it." The two fish swim on; then one of them says, "Geesh- What was that about? And what the hell is water?"
Not knowing, but understanding why is essential..

Loved this book! Gave it 5 stars because it was very good about toggling between discussing the principles of habits (becoming aware of them, forming them, stopping them) and providing relevant, real-life examples. Recommend this book to anyone seeking to overcome habits or looking to make their processes (in life, work, family, etc.) more streamlined with predictable success. Definitely an excellent read worth your time!
I found the examples in each chapter made the concept of habits and the different types very easy to understand.
It can be a slow listen so I suggest listening in chunks so you don't miss anything insightful.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. It was very interesting although the real practicality and application on how to actually change habits is very quickly summarized in the last 20 minutes of the book but I did very much enjoy the stories.
I enjoyed the stories, the research and the learning to the point that I wanted to take action. I wish the author would have provided more actions, experiments of frameworks to use to modify habits.
