    At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Power of Habit to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the printed version.


    What other book might you compare The Power of Habit to and why?

    Predictably Unpredictable. Eventhough we like to think we are unique and in control of our behavior, the truth is we follow patterns without noticing.


    What about Mike Chamberlain’s performance did you like?

    Clear voice, paused reader, well enumciated performance. Made it easy to listen at 1 1/2 speed


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Its not that type of book, but a lot of analysis came after various chapters


    Any additional comments?

    Change one habit, change your life. Read this book find out why

  • Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders

    Story

    Prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the 20th century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers. What motivated Manson in his seemingly mindless selection of victims, and what was his hold over the young women who obeyed his orders? Now available for the first time in unabridged audio, the gripping story of this famous and haunting crime is brought to life by acclaimed narrator Scott Brick.

    Larry says: "What a great book."
    "Excellent Narrator for an excellent story"

    Story
    Would you listen to Helter Skelter again? Why?

    Story catches your attention, making the hours go by without even noticing. I tend to avoid books longer than 10 hours,, but I found myself wanting more.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Narrator has a distinctive voice, clear pronunciation and e perfect pitch. Many books can be ruined by a narrator, this is the total opposite.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The description of Manson's childhood gives a chilling view of how a dysfunctional childhood mixed with an abnormal mind are an explosive mix
