    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 made the experience of listening to The Power of Habit the most enjoyable?

    I broke a long standing habit one year ago and up until now I hadn't been able to figure out how it did it. This book gave me insight to answer the question.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    Story

    No innocent young lady here. And guys this is not a turn on. What made Fifty Shades of Grey a super book was the combination of innocense, character development, hot kinky sex and a real plot. This is a wannabe copy cat book that left out everything but the sex.The cold and mechanical way this book approaches that . . well, I'd rather listen to my Wall Street Journal daily capsule. Forget this one.

    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    What made the experience of listening to Beautiful Ruins the most enjoyable?

    I wasn't sure what to expect. I pretty much went off Audible's recommendation and was very pleased with the work.


    Have you listened to any of Edoardo Ballerini’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Sometimes his voices seemed to bleed over into different characters but it was very subtle.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I don't think there was a time when listening that I wanted to turn it off. On the other hand nearly all of my listening is done in 20 to 30 minutes pieces as I travel between work and home. That time has always passed quickly, however.
