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

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?

Consumed by David Cronenberg. Enjoying it so far. Has a early Chuck Palahniuk feel to it.

Think you'll stick with it? Honestly each book gets better and delves more deeply than you'd expect from a supposed "children's" book.

I do. They've confirmed that they're keeping all the details of the authority, the church and the like in. I've high hopes for it for sure. I want to watch the film just to see what exactly they did with it.

ROB:

Nice review (apart from some weird punctuation, but my brain is trained for AP at this point so whatever).

I’m SO GLAD you’re enjoying it, and you’re really honing in on what makes (made ) Wolfe such an effective writer — his ability to such the reader in and create an experience that mimics that of actual life through the profession of the story. Kind of meta-narrative. Love it.

Haven’t read your Claw review yet, but will. Just saw Sword of the Lictor. Glad you’re seeing this through!

If you finish the four main books, you’ll only be the second person I “know” to have done so.

(BOT Long Sun is an *excellent* but utterly different semi-sequel if you crave more when your done with BOT New Sun)
