Lots of content filled with anecdotal stories. Would have been good if it also included referenced evidence and statistics.
Excellent narrator that engages with the content.
The chapters are:
1. The power of thinking twice
2. It takes 3 sec to embrace a good challenge
3. It takes 3 sec to fuel your passion
4. It takes 3 sec to own your piece of the pie
5. It takes 3 sec to walk the extra mile
6. It takes 3 sec to quit stewing and start doing
Conclusion - how to make your second impulse second nature

Listen to it several times
Dr. Parrott's narration is great, very nice voice and inflection.
I have this on my iPod and have listened to this book several times over the last year. It helps to be reminded to take 3 seconds to refocus your thoughts.

This is a smug and lazily put together series of
anecdotes and examples to support the idea of " 3 seconds " for which no intelligent analysis is offered. A book turned out among many by this author who apparently wants to sell his ideas in a very tired and formulaic way , with little insight added . A cheap excuse for real quality.

I enjoyed Dr. Parrott's insights in this book. He See's clearly between the lines and describes a vision of how to live a better, more elevated life. Great to listen to.
