Habits are not magic. Habits of every kind - from work habits, to athletics, to eating, to addictions - can be shaped. By accident or by intention, habits are built or changed every day.
This book provides a methodology for understanding and shaping habits. And it backs up the practicum with clearly understandable evidence.
Every trainer of any kind: sales trainers, sports coaches, people wanting to change their own daily habits, must study this!
I'm 63, and all my years of studying behavior, including a behavioral psych degree, this is the best source I've ever found for understanding and shaping habits... mine, my kids, anyone's.
Brilliantly conceived and developed, this is not the frivolous, forgettable science fiction we are so used to. Even at 65 years old, it is still relevant, fresh, thought provoking, and fun. We should all hope to be so at 65.
Mildly entertaining, but I really can't recommend it.
If you want a good post-apocalyptic story, "Earth Abides" is still excellent, even after 60 years.
"The Law of Success" is a case of a fine writer in desperate need of a hard-boiled editor. There is some very good content here, buried neath a mountain of drivel.
Surely the secret of life, the universe, and everything is revealed in Part 3, but I can stand no more.
And to audible.com: Keep the money; I want my time back!
You will be better able to make your own financial and even political choices. You will understand how global debt/leverage creates instability, and how that affects national and global economy.
Both scholarly and readable, this is a thorough, practical report in very palatable form, and in terms understandable by the curious layman.
The book is a perfectly clear description and explaination of the effect of debt/leverage on financial/economic dynamics, on national and global scales, and in historical context. Its theses are extremely well explained and supported.
I now wonder why I bothered to audit this book.
Its author, (however personally respectable,) was and remains obscure and unimportant. The work is just mysticism crossed with power-of-positive-thinking happy claptrap.
For any realist, the book is mostly a waste of time.
