The author breaks habit into three key areas: Business, Social, and personal. The author also reviews the science behind habit in a way that translate well into an audio format.Section relating habit to addiction and personal accountability was eye opening for me, didn't give it much thought prior to the book. Is a compulsive gambler really accountable for the addiction ? Some of the tricks that businesses use, utilizing habit, to market products was well done. How would you market Febreeze to customers ?
Chose this book because I thought it would be great to run and listen to since its based on a long distance run. Turns out shortly after downloading I broke my foot running.
Thought about holding off and waiting until my foot healed but I started listening and was instantly hooked. While being interested in running wouldn't hurt, its definitely not needed. What really sucked me into this book was the amazing stories along the run across America (The Transamerica). Most were completely unrelated to running rather the struggles to keep the run going in depression era America and focusing in on a subset of key runners through the race. The narrator (Rupert Degas) is by far the best I have experienced taking on male and female characters from all over the world (Scottish, Mexican, French etc ...)
I am not a complete tech geek nor do I normally read anything that could be considered Sci-Fi. That being said I thought the story was incredible and somewhat plausible. I HIGHLY recommend !!
Though the story came on too slow.
Depends, if they are new to Grisham I would recommend other books ..
Thought the narrator was a bit slow.
Yes, second half was much better than the first, so hang in there.
Detailed story line with compelling plot twists and a great mix of action (but not too much action). Narrator was amazing, took on many difficult accents as the story traversed across a few continents. If you were a fan of the original three Bourne novels you should like this story.
The story or Kevin's life just got more and more interesting as the story unfolded. Its amazing how interesting a book about a hacker could be. Alot of the intereset came out of a critical part of the hacking process,
Learning about the power of Social Engineering and appreciating Kevin's devotion to hacking just for the sake of hacking.
You don't need to be a computer geek to enjoy. As long as you have some general interset in computer / IT technology I think you will appreciate the book.
