So many of these books have to have so much filler! Note to author, your book does not need to be 500 pages. I just want to know how to break bad habits. This book is 95% life experience tales of the author or how he or others came about their “knowledge” with little substance covering my reason for reading it. So much so that I could not find the 5% I was looking for. I don’t really care the author is fascinated with Lance Armstrong and I don’t need an education on what the Tour de France is. Reading this book is like watching a 20 minute YouTube video with 20 seconds of useful information.
