Why did I wait to hear this book!
About the Narrator -
Mike Chamberlain's voice is clean, fresh, light, and unalloyed. The tone feels as if he brings the words directly from the author's mind to us with absolute conviction. His overall performance moves me to find more books with his narration.
About the Author -
I believe Charles has delved here a powerful finding. His study on Habits and the research done and committed here is nuanced and follows thorough folds of logic to bring the listener and reader to conclusion. His literary style is plain and can be understood by even the tender reader or listener.
About the Content -
This is one of the best books in the aisles of Personal Development, Business, Success, and self-help. Habits as whole are well traced. Its effect on us, how we develop it, how it changes us and its invisible implications over a course of period change us and our environment. A profound and in-depth study into how we can overcome. The paths we need to take in order to overcome these habits (bad ones- nail biting, gambling, injury, overeating - you name it).
This has begun a good change in me. I have started making these concious decisions in life that I otherwise wouldn't have had the gumption to try.
Powerful, wise, and bloody brilliant.
