    Story
    (5633)

    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.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, I think if you understand how your habits control you, you will be better able to break bad habits and create good habits.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The take away that you can be in control of your habits rather than be a slave to them.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was fine. Well paced, proper inflection with a hint of humor in the right places.

    Story
    (17961)

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"
    "Funny, touching and insightful. Bravo!"

    What made the experience of listening to Bossypants the most enjoyable?

    Tina Fey is a terrific narrator. I couldn't wait to get in my car to listen to the next chapter.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bossypants?

    When she talks about her dad and scar. Unexpected personal and touching moments.

  • Thinking, Fast and Slow

    Story
    (2435)

    The guru to the gurus at last shares his knowledge with the rest of us. Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman's seminal studies in behavioral psychology, behavioral economics, and happiness studies have influenced numerous other authors, including Steven Pinker and Malcolm Gladwell. In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman at last offers his own, first book for the general public. It is a lucid and enlightening summary of his life's work. It will change the way you think about thinking. Two systems drive the way we think and make choices, Kahneman explains....

    Mike Kircher says: "Difficult Listen, but Probably a Great Read"

    What would have made Thinking, Fast and Slow better?

    A narrator who wasn't so monotone. I will buy this book and read it. Every time I listen to it I get very sleepy. Now I just play it at night and I'm sleeping within 1/2 an hour. It's my sleep aid.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    na


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    You had to force your self to focus on what he was saying rather than how he was saying it. He read the book in a very snobby, upper crust kind of tone which just made me want to sleep. I tried to listen while driving, but concluded that it was unsafe (seriously, wanted to sleep while driving).


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The topic was interesting and insightful. I can't finish listening to it, I will buy the print version and read it because I found it inspirational. By understanding how we think and make decisions, I think we can change some of our unwanted habits.
