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.
The book was very surprising. It brought to light so many reason for the habits that we have and also tips to change them!
I have not listened to anything else by Mike Chamberlain, at this time; however, he did an awesome job with this book.
I haven't read the book so I couldn't say for certain.
Brain mapping. Fascinating stuff!
No, it's not intended to, at least that's my opinion. It was a good book though.
Recommend this to anyone.
Yes, I would read again and did. I even took notes.
Not sure if there was a moment per say. I particularly like the objective look the author took regarding AA and why it works to the extent it does. It was brilliant.
I guess, kind of indifferent about the performance. Sometimes he tried too hard but I am not saying that was a bad thing.
Yes, but didn't, too long. I broke it up in three chunks just like the author wrote it in three chunks.
I can't wait till the author has another book out because I am certain he will keep it objective, scientific, relevant and interesting. Good Job.
I d listen again
The book tells you how a habit is formed, how you can use this information to change bad habits to good ones and how you can form new habits.
I may read another book by these authors; it totally depends on the subject.
This was nonfiction. It did have a lot of interesting research and information about habits. I would have given it a 3.5 if there was such a rating.
Didn't is pronounced didn't, not didint. Wouldn't is pronounced wouldn't not wouldint. Narrator had a stilted style but it wasn't annoying except for pronunciation of contractions.
Good book with lots of interesting info.
I love this book. I've listened to it at least 3 times. Actually, I listen to it between new credits. It's just that good. It's scientific, insightful, smart, funny, sad, and completely helpful. Before I bought the book, I read other reviews. There were a few people who said the book didn't go into enough detail about changing (or forming) habits for oneself. That is completely not true! This book, from the first chapter, is helping you to learn how to modify your own behavior (and the behavior of others, ie your children). I've recommended it to several people, all who've thanked me for the introduction. It's just great! My favorite section is about Keystone Habits. His discussion of how changing one behavior/habit can change your entire life, changed my entire life. I found, after multiple listenings, that I needed to change when I took my daily shower. Changing from morning showers to evening showers has literally changed everything for me. I can get up and out of the house in an hour...so I'm at my desk an hour earlier. I can wear makeup (evening shower means not risking the "I don't feel like washing my face syndrome I'd had before). I can go to the gym...getting to work earlier means leaving work earlier, which gives me an hour before I have to pick up the kid. It's just crazy how easy it was once I changed that habit.
I'd honestly recommend this book to everyone. It should be included in high school curriculum...let people know early that they have the power to change their own lives.
I gave this book a high rating even though it kind of read like a text book, but the material was so interesting that I had to keep listening and have found myself referring to it often since. A really good book for helping you figure out why people do what they do.
Interesting topics and thought provoking. A great book that keeps you entertained and thinking while listening.
