I guess I consider myself a computer nerds somewhat. All of the pop culture and computer references were great. The story does like somewhat, but it was still enjoyable nonetheless.

It's never wise to talk to strangers...and that goes double when they're dead. Unfortunately, seventeen-year-old Anna Morgan has no choice. Resting on a park bench, touching the turnstile at the Metro station - she never knows where she'll encounter a ghost. These mental hitchhikers are the reason Anna has been tossed from one foster home and psychiatric institution to the next for most of her life.

The book seems like a decent story, but I couldn't find myself well engaged in the book or with the characters. There is not much in depth characterization, and a lot of the writing seems almost too cliche.

At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

I was engaged the whole time. the book was very informative on how habits form. I want to try and apply the principles taught in the book.
