This is one of those books that is a must read! The narrator's voice is warm and comforting and the message is delivered in such a way that you can't help but absorb it. I'm going to listen again and by all the other books done by The arbinger Institute.

Atomic Habits is the perfect how to book with clear explanations and great illustrations. James Clear has a compelling, compassionate and kind voice. I think this is probably the best how-to book I've ever read and I will be listening to it over and over again. I have also subscribed to his website and newsletters and extras that he talks about in the book. I can't say enough about this book. It is a must-read

This is the first book I have purchased from Audible and I loved it Mel Robbins is funny, irreverent, serious as hell, and makes her point in a super compelling way. I left this book wanting to read more of her points of view but also wanting to delve deeper into achieving my own goals and exploring what is holding me back. I highly recommend this book. Be prepared for some of the best potty mouth. And then read her 5 Second Rule.

Acuff knows the reason why many writers' novels go unfinished - it's the same reason why gyms are filled in the first week of January and empty by the end of the month and why people stop learning a new language once they get past the easy parts. It's not just that people lose momentum or get distracted. People give up on projects when they fail to live up to their own high expectations and decide that if they can't do something perfectly, they won't do it at all. If you're going to finish, you have to kill perfectionism.

I love it when the author actually reads the book. They are able to infuse the book with their personality and bring a deeper meaning to the words. This book is probably the best example of it. Well, maybe Mel Robbins is tied for this one too. I have just read two books on goals and habits and this book was the perfect tie-in to bring everything together. I will certainly be listening to it again just because Jon could be so irreverent , so real and somewhat jarring in a really good way. He certainly made me think.
