The section of why we do what we do and how to break out of it.
The power of habit is very good at a data driven explanation of why we sometimes do what we do and are not conscious of it.
Although chock-full of examples, they sometimes seem to drag on. Also, the narration sometimes becomes too monotone. I would have liked to have heard more inflection especially when there is so much information and scientific data being provided. At times the examples go on forever after the point has been made.
Overall great insight and information but this audio book needs some kind of worksheet / reference chart so that you can review and apply the principles.
great Topix intertwined within excellent examples I would have given it 5 Stars across the board but I had to turn up the pace to 1.35 which is understandable considering I'mADD... keeps your attention throughout and covers both societal, business and personal habits entertaining enough for a second listen and chocked full of great material that would probably require a third
Love to read, but time only allows listening. Thank God for audible.
Yes, It is very entertaining and If you really work at it, you can find some great nuggets. The case studies alone are worth the price of the book, however, there practical or actionable items are minimal. It is a great eye opener of how vital and important habits are and a great place to start.
Don't expect to finish the book and be able to put together any sort of plan towards changing or improving your habits. If that is your goal, you will need another book, but if you need motivation, inspiration or better understand the powerful implications of habits, this is your book.
I believe the practical knowledge that you shouldn't change the trigger or the want it satisfies, only the routine.
Yes please make a practical guide that gives some general methods and personal examples of how to transform habits.
Please make your future books more practical
This book was amazing. It changed my life in ways that I could not have expected! I love this book and it was one of the few books that I might actually go through again. I had real world examples of things that I didn't know I was able to change about my own habits.
The narrator of this book did a pretty good job of telling the story without being boring. At times, the content can be a bit winded. It back and forth between stories/examples and that can be a bit confusing at times. Overall, this book has a lot of good info, and if you're into psychology and understanding the why and how behind the actions of people and entities, you'll love it. However, I will say that it is probably a better READ than LISTEN.
I loved the social science peek behind the curtain of something so seemingly simple as a habit. The vignettes and science danced with each other through every chapter and it was so engaging and informative. great read!
Lots of stories, examples to understand everything. I would recommend to everyone who wants to understand the power of habit.
