In mid-life I struggle with things about myself I want to change. This book helped me understand why I do some of the annoying things I do (admit it, you know what I mean) as well as what kinds of habits I have purposely or inadvertently helped my kids develop. And while not a self help book, it will help me.
More than that, it put me on an intellectual journey starting with a micro view of the physiology or habits and how that impact individuals lives to the macro perspective of how habits impact our culture, society and economy.
The most fascinating thing to me is how I now am recognizing habits as defined by the author in everyday life both at work and at home. Bravo for truly impacting the reader.
This is a classic example of how our culture is evolving. The author recounts case after case of how to live selfishly, including exploiting loopholes, avoiding responsibility under the guise of achieving efficiency and perhaps worst of all ripping off employers. Employers, his lifestyle funders, put some level of faith employers when they give them the freedom to work from home, for example and the author returns that faith by promoting a "do just enough" attitude. Frankly, the author and all those who follow his perspective should quit their jobs, and follow their dreams as entrepreneurs in the fields of their passion.
I would request my money back.
PS: to all who read these, keep in mind that the author would sat that writing these reveiws is a complete waste of time.
