I would recommend it because it is a life changing book, as long as you do your part. But the book itself is the thing that makes you realize that the past and all the bad things do not matter, and you can always make a switch, no matter how late you are. And this is promising.
Right now, I cannot say as I have not read so many books on this subject. And from all that I have read, I don't feel any other book is close to this one.
I would not say favorite, but the scene that marked me and I keep on bringing it from the back of my mind when I am down, is the scene where the Husband, suffering from sleep walking, murders his wife. It is an unfortunate reminder that no matter how good of a person you are, things can happen and you need to come to terms with it and let it go. It does not have to do necessarily with the subject of habit, but it is one story that captivated me.
And it is not the only one.
Yes and no. It is not a novel, so I would not say I wanted to listen to it all in one sitting, but more I wanted to keep it for longer and savor it day by day.
I was hoping to get an action plan of how I can change my habits for better. However I was not disappointed as at the end we have a step by step guidance of how we can observe ourselves and take notes and change small things, in such a way that the pattern slowly shifts.
It was also painful to find out that you can be an alcoholic for example and than stop for years and years and than in a moment of weakness you can start all over again.
I have so many good things to say about this book, I can literally speak for one hour.
Please read it, you will be better with it.
I've told a few people about this book and informed them of what I learned about habits and they were impressed. It's not the best book I've ever read, but I'm glad I read it.
This is one of the most powerful concepts I have ever learned. It is simple and though implementing the idea may take effort simple ideas are often so extremely powerful and useful that they produce real change. I can't wait to experiment.
Who isn't in need of a technique to break even lifelong bad habits, or add some good ones to your life? Maybe you've admired the way a friend can study every night, or another take the time to stay organized at the expense of leisure time. I'm pretty far from perfect, and
this book fits the bill, in my opinion. Cheaper than hypnosis, right?
I like to read a lot of information. Join me to learn more!
This audiobook was a nice read. It was simple to get through and enjoyable.
Chamberlain gives a consistent performance.
The points are worthwhile but they could be made much more succinctly. It felt like the creators were simply searching for a way to sell a book.
the narration was excellent, but the book was much longer than it needed to be in order to deliver the final point that it delivered in the Final Chapter which was only 23 minutes long compared to some previous chapters that spanned an hour or more
