charles duhigg - the power of habit

 


read the book summary the other day and it seemed useful. now got into the full text.

it’s a good journalistic coverage of current science on what makes habits and what makes them stick. it’s got various fascinating case studies in neuroscience, individual and organizational psychology, marketing, etc.

yes, it’s got some actionable information in it, but that’s not the real meat of the book. the real meat of the book is... brains

Yesterday I received a good condition 1st edition hardback with the dustjacket of Sword of the Lictor. Got it from ebay for $8.00. Will start in on it as soon as I finish the CLAW

 

YES!

Canít wait to read your review!

Youíre finally coming through for me, which means I will read a book or series of your choosing (within reason). Fiction only, no mocrofungi books.

Yeah, Iím pretty impressed. Slow moving because Iím working a ton these days, but it ... well, itís smarter, better, faster, stronger than the Harry Potter books to which it is so often - for some reason - compared, despite coming out much earlier.

If only Harry Potter was written this eloquently, the story could have been something, but the actual prose underestimates the attention spans of young readers.

Kinda weird that itís going to be an HBO show. Think theyíre going to up the violence?
