Review of 'Atomic Habits' on 'Storygraph'

5 stars

Excellent explanation of problems with forming good habits and stopping bad ones. There are solutions for each of the problems. He starts off with a key for me which I'd say is basically to concentrate on my system rather than on goals. That shifted my mindset to something I can do now rather than focusing on what will be in the future. This book was filled with information-not one of those that just harps about one thing with complaints about the ways some other expert has it all wrong. This is a solid book with sensible information with a bit of encouragement and some good examples added.

Diferente a lo esperado

4 stars

Hay cosas que me han gustado mucho y cosas que no tanto. 3'5 estrellas para mí. Me ha sorprendido que la historia sea tan diferente a la historia popular que el cine ha metido en nuestras cabezas. Me ha decepcionado algunas cosas de la narración, como el propio momento "nacimiento" del monstruo. Creo que se le notan los años más de lo que esperaba. Me ha parecido curioso el nivel de anidamiento de narraciones (cartas donde se cuentan historias de otros, que cuentan cartas e historias de otros). Me ha gustado el desarrollo quijotesco de los personajes.

Aprendiendo a construir hábitos

4 stars

Me gusta leer este tipo de libros de vez en cuando, aunque lo haga con mirada crítica, siempre aprendo algo. Es verdad que fomentan ese tipo de sociedad hiperproductiva que odio, así que lo dicho, ojo con caer en la autoexplotación que promueve el sistema, y la mirada del éxito desde el "hacer mucho". De cualquier modo, si intentas generar nuevos hábitos, hay buenos y útiles consejos. Lo recomiendo

Quick, useful, but over written

4 stars

Like many self help books, this could be an article and just as usefully make all the points. I've found what was said to be true to my learning about creating and keeping productive habits. So it is useful if this is what you are trying to do - or at least would be to someone like me. I think you can probably generally just skim, dive into interesting parts, and read chapter summaries to save time.
