    Say you want to start going to the gym or practicing a musical instrument. How long should it take before you stop having to force it and start doing it automatically? The surprising answers are found in Making Habits, Breaking Habits, a leading psychologist’s popular examination of one of the most powerful and underappreciated processes in the brain. Although people like to think that they are in control, the vast majority of human behavior occurs without any decision-making or conscious thought.

    Ria says: "Excellent, in-depth, research supported insight"
    "Interesting view in why we do what we do"

    Story
    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I have two gripes with this book; First, the author uses a ton of psychological theories and examples to back up his points. There isn't anything inherently wrong with this, however, by about the 3/4 mark the studies were getting boring and I fully understood that he did his research without needing to listen it. Second, although I found this book quite interesting it was quite repetitive. The idea of changing our habits is quite complex, however, it could have been summed up without needing to beat the same ideas and concepts over and over.


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

    The guy reading the book felt a little dramatic at first and the content of this particular book does not call for it. By the end though, I really enjoyed his reading style.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    We are less in control of our habits and behaviours than we think.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a fascinating look into why people do what they do. It gives great insight into our own personal habits, as well as those of other people. For anyone looking to learn more about why people make the choices they make, this book is a wonderful place to look.
