    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.

    This is the first book I ever listened to, and I must say that I am totally hooked now. The information in this book will really give you insight into the mind and why you do what you do. I absolutely recommend it to anyone who wants to break a habit of any kind.


    What about Mike Chamberlain’s performance did you like?

    His voice tone and the way he read the story. He emphasized points that were important.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No. I was anxious to hear every word. I didn't skip anything.


    Any additional comments?

    A chance meeting in Rio takes Maria to Geneva, where she dreams of finding fame and fortune, yet ends up working the streets as a prostitute. In Geneva, Maria drifts further and further away from love while at the same time developing a fascination with sex. Eventually, Maria's despairing view of love is put to the test when she meets a handsome young painter. In this odyssey of self-discovery, Maria has to choose between pursuing a path of darkness or risking everything to find her own 'inner light'.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. This book is not your classic love story and its full of wise words. After reading The Alchemist by this author, I thought I would see if his other works are as good. No disappointment at all!!!! Beautifully written story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of them. The narrators do an excellent job of bringing the characters to life.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene towards the end where the main characters finally see what true love is through a sexual experience.


    Who was the most memorable character of Eleven Minutes and why?

    Ralph, by far. The way he deals with Maria and how he wins her is special.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a great listen. I guarantee anyone who can appreciate a good story will love it.
