Holy cow! This book is so freaking interesting! I started it with the expectation that it would convince me to workout and eat better and change some lifestyle habits. It sort of did that, but mostly it told me stories of how the habit loop works and how habits change people, groups, and entire societies! I actually connected a lot of this more with how to help my students be successful at following basic rules at school. It explains the science and research of how habits work in our brain in such an interesting way. I can't tell you how many times I wanted to stay in my car listening longer or yelled, "That is so interesting!" At my steering wheel. This one did more teaching instead of persuading like a lot of the PD books I have read. I loved all of it!
