Loved it! The author has a great way to present all this information with scientific background using entertaining stories. However, I think some of the stories were too long and the overall point was lost. The narration is awesome. Great book!
I admit that it is challenging to give any book less than four stars. As a habitual reader most of this book has been covered in previous readings, But the one or two new ideas was well worth the read or more precisely the listen
Good book backed by good research. I got what I needed out of it. There was a fair amount spent on the question of why people generally think that a sleepwalking killer isn't responsible for his actions while a compulsive gambler is, even though neither is able to control their actions. I would have liked more time spent on the practical application of the principles described in the book rather than just the one example in the appendix.
Lots of historical information about habits with some in-depth analysis of specific people. I will need to relisten perhaps to glean something more interesting. I know that I didn't get a warm or fuzzy feeling with this book.
I liked this book because the information was given in a entertaining and educational format. I stopped several times to take notes. Everyone should read this book. It really shows you that change is possible in all our lives.
Narrator is good, interesting stories, and great scientific knowledge. I didn't like the fact that it doesn't focus on changing habits until the end though. That was my only beef.
Couple spots took me down too much detail on the side-story...Came in handy when running around taking care of the house. Overall an important read on the journey to self mastery.
I really enjoyed this book. It made me think. Not only about info in the book but also its application in various areas of my own life. I appreciated the application at three levels. I appreciated the practical tips at the end. I ended up discussing the book with several people and even recommending it.
