Meet Emily and Paul: The parents of two young children, Emily is the newly promoted VP of marketing at a large corporation while Paul works from home or from clients' offices as an independent IT consultant. Their lives, like all of ours, are filled with a bewildering blizzard of emails, phone calls, yet more emails, meetings, projects, proposals, and plans. Just staying ahead of the storm has become a seemingly insurmountable task.

I have made attempts to read several "how your brain works" books but always found myself drifting into thought instead of focusing on the message. The narrators are usually monotone and the terminology is way over my head. This book is different. The narration is better, the way the David Rock lays out the message is brilliant, and I often found myself in those "Ah Ha!" moments only wanting to listen more intently. I have not stopped recommending this book to everyone I know and cannot emphasize enough how much this book can change your life by you not having to do any huge lifestyle changes. I plan on listening to this book another five times minimum!
