Publisher's Summary

Our willpower is limited, yet we rely on it every day to get our tasks done. Even if we build willpower slowly over time, it's never enough to reach all of our goals. The solution lies in habit creation, the method by which we transform hard tasks into easy ones, making them automatic and independent of our will power. Each of us has millions of habits, in how we do our work, interact with others, perceive the world, and think about ourselves. Left unexamined, these habits are just as likely to hinder our progress as they are to push it along. Without a deliberate system for building habits, we become our own worst enemy.

Superhuman by Habit examines habit building in depth. It covers the principles and philosophies of habit building, as well as the practical nuts and bolts implementing those habits. The second half of the audiobook is dedicated to specific habits in every major area of life, covering the pros and cons of each, the path to implementing them, and specific notes about each one.

Useful book

Love the content of the book. Good examples. However, there are production mistakes that annoy me in the Audible version.

Reads like a self-published e-book

I really liked the concepts in this book, and it's nice that the author spells out exact examples of how to implement them. I can also appreciate that the author is narrating his own book, and that is the only reason I gave the performance 2 stars instead of 1. Authors are not the same as performers, and so when an author narrates their own book, mistakes are more acceptable because they are really writers, not narrators. Bad narration can be made up for by good editing, but this book doesn't have good editing. At one point you can even hear the narrator ask himself how to say a word. This audio book is cheap and it's obvious when you are listening to it. But I guess you get what you pay for.

Gets better as it goes on

There’s definitely some great advice within. I like that each topic is separated by chapters but he never named them so unless you can’t use this audible book to refresh any of its ideas. I would at least hope that his kindle or paper versions have names for each chapter topic.

The content is excellent and very helpful. I just wish he named those chapters so I could actually use this book for more than the initial once-through listen.

Some Gold Nuggets But Very Distracting

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Had some good ideas but might be better to read the actual book as the performance was distracting.

How could the performance have been better?

There were weird cuts where the author/narrator messed up and didn't even finish the sentence. He also wasn't the best performer. It sounded like it was read in the guys basement with not great equipment (which I kinda suspect is the cast). For me it was quite distracting in trying to soak up the info.

A good addition to your habit formation library

Any additional comments?

I've spent several months finding, reading/listening to every book I can find about habit formation. Some are rich with science to back up why habit formation is at the core of who we are. Others, like this one, are practical, down-to-earth and easy to digest.

Inspiring

I breezed though this book. The writer made it easy to enjoy. Now it has become an inspiration to polish my day to day routine and get rid of my bad habits by replacing them with new ones. The only thing I didn't like is that it doesn't have a scientific point of view on habits but in the writers personal experience and recommendations. Nonetheless, it has done great things for me and has given me a new look into my life so that's more than enough to consider buying it.

Poor guy ... omg. Horrendous!!!

The audiobook is abysmal. The book isn’t bad, but the reader is horrendous, worst I’ve ever heard, he mumbles and gets mad at self as he reads way too fast. At least he tried but it’s nearly impossible to listen, but the information wasn’t decent. I’m returning this mess.

Be a superhero (by habit)!

Short but intense dose of motivation and techniques for habit forming. One of the books that I finished listening to in 3 hours. It's impactful precisely because it's not too long. I love list of specific habits - pros, cons and path to form them. "Forming good habits so that we do the right things on auto-pilot is the way we can be closest to being a superhuman". Loading & maintenance phases for any new habit formation was a new concept for me.

Straight to the point

I usually don't purchase any audiobook that is under 4hrs length but made an exception for this. I'm someone who's already very organised but unfortunately I started slipping on productivity due to having kids etc.

This book goes directly to the point & doesn't faff around. Found myself writing down a lot of notes due to how practical the scenarios & advice were. I'll be implementing quite a bit of the strategies especially in my goal to read at least 40 books this year.

One distinct area which stood out for me was how the brain in all its magnificence can undermine you without you even knowing it.

"For all of it's glory & genius, your brain can be a stubborn selfish, lazy brat sometimes. Until you fully train the habit, your brain will try to sabotage you".

The only negative comment about this audiobook is that in his narration, he repeats an area he'd already read. Got me a bit confused - apart from that, it's definitely a recommended read if you're looking to grab life by the cajones

Good book, but badly edited.

A good little book. Nothing really new but a nice reminder of some important ideas. However, the actual recording has a few obvious mistakes that must have been missed in the edit. It makes it all feel a bit sloppy, which is a shame.

Worth coming back to

If you're struggling for motivation, but desire to improve any aspect of your life, this is good place to start.
It's not perfect by any means, and it's not going to change your life on its own, but it will give you enough ideas where to start and what to do, that it should help you.
The reading is a little monotonous at times, but overall it's fine.
It's also one of those books worth coming back to, to remind yourself of its messages.

very useful self development book

I've read a few books in my time in the area of improving yourself and this is one of the best. very practical, not at all repetitive like many of the genre. I don't know much about the author, he's some sort of "blogger" but he's condensed the nature of habit into something understandable and given examples of many useful habits worth adopting and the pros and cons of adopting them and ways of doing it and the risks to staying on course.
I rarely write reviews but I felt I would here because this book might help someone.

Life changing!!!

Does exactly what it says on the tin! Since applying this I've been able to exercise every day, and wake up at 4:30am and go straight for a walk. Now those two habits are almost automatic I'm adding meditation into the mix, Tynan's method makes it effortless! Thank you : )

Great as an intro - but very dumbed down

While this was written for the lowest common denominator to make the book sell and be accessible, it could have gone deeper into topics and been more useful. I feel the author would make a great speaker

Pure gold

Any additional comments?

I've read more books than I care to count on the subject of building habits - this is the only one I'll be passing on to friends from now on. Super succinct, loaded with gold, written by somebody you can tell has really gone deep and invested an extraordinary amount of hard work into his personal transformation. The author reads the title, delivery is a little bland and there are some mistakes that have not been edited out (quite comical), but none of that detracts from the content - this is the first review I've left of over 150 audio books from audible - I'm not saying it's the best of them all, but I felt inspired to support it!

Lecture perfectible, livre intéressant

le rythme de lecture est un peu trop rapide et il a fallu que je répète plusieurs fois certains passages pour vraiment en intégrer le principe le livre est intéressant et donne beaucoup de clés pour changer ses habitudes.
