Basically a series of anecdotes that he interprets to support his hypotheses about habits. No real science. A short appendix reviews a lacklustre way to break a bad habit. Extremely disappointed that I wasted time on this. A friend had…

Well worth reading, some valuable learning to be gained. Although I don't believe recreating habits is as easy as he prescribes, it's certainly worth trying.

One of the most tedious, repetitive, just bloody awful books I've ever had the misfortune to waste several hours of the my life I'll never get back reading. The audio book is on 9 CDs. I managed to get through the first 2, and was so…

I really enjoyed this audiobook. It gave me some real food for thought. Also led me to some other resources in an interesting roundabout way. The information on how the brain works with habits is very valuable.

Great information on habits, how they work, how they work, how they can benefit and be a disabilty to us. Does give some pointers on how to change them, it would have been even better if there was more time and information on this area.

The content was fairly interesting. It would be most useful for people in the manipulation, I mean, advertising business. Less useful for regular folks who picked this up thinking it would help them quit smoking. The voice recording is…

I found this more relating to business and sales and was looking for something more related to habits of an individual, in their daily life. While some of the information was applicable, I should have picked a book more personally…

Interesting exploration of how we develop, and can change habits that are so pervasive in our lives. I thought there was enough information on how to change or enhance habits to make it very worthwhile.

Early on while listening to this audiobook, I was ready to eject the disc and forget the whole thing. The content was shaping up to be just another business book on how to maximize profits. Take the story of Claude C. Hopkins for example.…

An interesting book, and I recommend it. However there wasn't the detail I expected in exactly how to go about changing habits, and I was left mildly unsatisfied. But there's a good explanation of some of the research around habits, and…
