This is a summary of Gretchen Rubin's New York Times and Washington Post best-seller Better Than Before: What I Learned About Making and Breaking Habits - to Sleep More, Quit Sugar, Procrastinate Less, and Generally Build a Happier Life
The author of the blockbuster New York Times best-sellers The Happiness Project and Happier at Home tackles the critical question: How do we change? Gretchen Rubin's answer: through habits. Habits are the invisible architecture of everyday life. It takes work to make a habit, but once that habit is set, we can harness the energy of habits to build happier, stronger, more productive lives. So if habits are a key to change, then what we really need to know is: How do we change our habits? Better Than Before answers that question. It presents a practical, concrete framework to allow listeners to understand their habits - and to change them for good. Infused with Rubin's compelling voice, rigorous research, and easy humor, and packed with vivid stories of lives transformed, Better Than Before explains the (sometimes counter-intuitive) core principles of habit formation. Along the way, Rubin uses herself as guinea pig, tests her theories on family and friends, and answers listeners' most pressing questions - oddly, questions that other writers and researchers tend to ignore:
Whether listeners want to get more sleep, stop checking their devices, maintain a healthy weight, or finish an important project, habits make change possible.

I could not get this to play.
It's put me me off audible books altogether!!
No idea as it never played
Possibly if it had played
Is this a con???
"The first half is ads for FB & IG, but good after."
Waaay too much time spent advertising with www dots. Good very quick summary. Probably already stuff you already know though.
"Norma Jean Gradsky is a genius!"
She is lyrical, intelligent, and a poet in her own right.
I liked the narration. I thought the content was a bit pedestrian.
Only one character.
It's all applicable, but it's also all fairly obvious.
Yes, the narrator is too good for this book.
