    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.

    Story

    Really liked understanding the neurobiology of a habit (trigger, action, reward) and how its not that's difficult to swap out the middle part if you understand your trigger and reward. This is useful stuff that I'm actually using in my life.

    I found the first half more useful than the second, but its all very entertaining. This is a book I recommend for the following categories of people: marketing, sales, small business, entrepreuners and anyone trying to change something in their life.

    Dr. Suresh Jha, best known for unmasking fraudulent swamis and godmen, dies in a fit of giggles at his morning yoga class when goddess Kali appears from the mist and plunges a sword into his chest. The only one laughing now is the main suspect, a powerful guru named Maharaj Swami, who seems to have done away with his most vocal critic.

    Any additional comments?

    This was perfect for me, because I love mysteries, and I love India. I'm familiar with the Delhi locations and the cultural references. Might be a little confusing for people who don't have this connection to India, but it's an entertaining listen/read nonetheless. It's light and fun, and keeps you guessing. I am definitely looking forward to more stories from this author.
