    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.

    What disappointed you about The Power of Habit?

    The reader makes this almost unlistenable.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mike Chamberlain?

    Someone who can read a simple sentence without saturating it with mindless enthusiasm.

  • The Cow in the Parking Lot: A Zen Approach to Overcoming Anger

    Imagine you're circling a crowded parking lot. Just as you spot a space, another driver races ahead and takes it. In a world of road rage, domestic violence, and professionally angry TV and radio commentators, your likely response is anger, even fury. Now imagine that instead of another driver, a cow has lumbered into that parking space and settled down. Your anger dissolves into bemusement. What has changed? Not just the occupant of the space but your perspective on the situation.

    Overall

    My son and wife both questioned why I was reading this book. I'm easy going and not many things make me angry to the point where I consider it a problem.
    I wanted a few exercises to deal with the few things that push my buttons and this book helped me. The reader became one of those things. He was so bad at dealing with the quotations I felt compelled to warn people. He affects accents and tones of voice that seem to have been learned by listening to poorly dubbed martial arts movies. I kept hoping to hear the word "grahshoppah".
