    Why do people find it so hard to change? The secret is that everyone has their own formula for making changes that stick, but most people don't know what theirs is. They think there is one way to lose five pounds, and another way to stay on top of their e-mail, but they don't realize that for all changes, there is one system that works best for each individual.

    "Many a "a-ha!" moments, but reading and pace....."

    Would you listen to This Year I Will again? Why?

    Yes, there are many good tips in this book. The author states that this isn't a read once and put away type of book. There are many things to try in order to find what method(s) suit you best.


    What three words best describe M. J. Ryan’s performance?

    Moving Right Along : )


    Any additional comments?

    Much of this book is something I've read before, but things that didn't really stick until presented here which is the odd part. It's not so much the author's reading that hindered me fully loving this book, it actually felt more conversational and relaxed with her occasional misspoken words and awkward pauses. My shortcoming with this "Audible Book" is the pacing. It feels like the chapters flow from one to the next without emphasis nor separation of idea(s). I had to pause, backup, and write down the idea or key points to the previous topic a lot.

    Me personally, I don't feel that this is a book that I can casually listen to in the car or while exercising because without rapt attention, the ideas just flow right past. I'm still giving it good marks based on content, I like the author's voice and presentation... just the pacing.
