One afternoon - after another failed attempt to get motivated to exercise - I (accidentally) started my first mini habit. I initially committed to do one push-up, and it turned into a full workout. I was shocked. This "stupid idea" wasn't supposed to work. I was shocked again when my success with this strategy continued for months (and to this day). I had to consider that maybe I wasn't the problem in those 10 years of mediocre results. Maybe it was my prior strategies that were ineffective, despite being oft-repeated as "the way to change" in countless books.

Patronizing style with a number of claims thrown in it made it hard to completely listen to it. Nearly Nothing resonated. Only the importance of sleep.

Claims get anecdotal reference. Acupuncture and footreflex get serious treatment.

I blindly bougth great courses with intersting titles. No more. This was a waste of a credit and my time.

This is an entertaining, informative beginner's guide to understanding football. Also, I guarantee* that this is the most enjoyable introductory audiobook ever about football, and that after listening to this audiobook you will know and love the game.

Presentation is good but for non USA citizens hard to understand. I get the book since I want to understand the game better but it does not deliver completely. Sometimes too much detail, sometimes too little.
