If you have never read anything about building habits nor read a self-help book, you would probably find this quite interesting. This audiobook is a series of stories showing how habits=behavior. The "point" the author is making in each individual story was predictable in the first 5 minutes but.... the stories were drawn out into descriptions lasting 20-45 minutes. I was determined to "see it through" and, was never so glad to reach the end of an audiobook. The speaker really tried to make use of his voice to create an "ahh ha" effect ...even though... I never found one zzzzzzz
I did not read the print version.
too many to mention
statistics blew me away.
Think you have problems? You dont.
I was glad I found so many disparaging reviews about the presentor speaking monotone. Though it almost kept me from getting the book. I listed to the preview and got a glimpse of what I would hear and I was prepared. But actually, I DID NOT find her monotone AT ALL!!! On the other hand, maybe it was because I EXPECTED her to be so.
proof that it's best to stay away from the TV when "breaking news" occurs.
Presentation was gripping.
Have not heard any Don Leslie performances that I know of.
These boys DID NOT perfectly fit the "profile" as was stated in the news reports immediately following the incident. And, I think it was MUCH MUCH less "obvious" that these boys were crashing ...than reported. It seems that their parents, were treated very badly by those in media, who made it look as though the parents were IDIOTS for not seeing the OBVIOUS.
The Boston Marathon bombing occurred within a few months after I finished this book. And, because of this book, I turned OFF the TV & encouraged everyone in my family to do the same (relating to news about the marathon bombing). Having refused to "take in" anything about the Marathon Bombing for weeks, I believe I will hear/learn the "more accurate" story that is yet to come out. And, next year, my memory of that event, should be much less cluttered than many.
