Summary

Our willpower is limited, yet we rely on it every day to get our tasks done. Even if we build willpower slowly over time, it's never enough to reach all of our goals. The solution lies in habit creation, the method by which we transform hard tasks into easy ones, making them automatic and independent of our will power. Each of us has millions of habits, in how we do our work, interact with others, perceive the world, and think about ourselves. Left unexamined, these habits are just as likely to hinder our progress as they are to push it along. Without a deliberate system for building habits, we become our own worst enemy.

Superhuman by Habit examines habit building in depth. It covers the principles and philosophies of habit building, as well as the practical nuts and bolts implementing those habits. The second half of the audiobook is dedicated to specific habits in every major area of life, covering the pros and cons of each, the path to implementing them, and specific notes about each one.

very useful self development book

I've read a few books in my time in the area of improving yourself and this is one of the best. very practical, not at all repetitive like many of the genre. I don't know much about the author, he's some sort of "blogger" but he's condensed the nature of habit into something understandable and given examples of many useful habits worth adopting and the pros and cons of adopting them and ways of doing it and the risks to staying on course.
I rarely write reviews but I felt I would here because this book might help someone.

Life changing!!!

Does exactly what it says on the tin! Since applying this I've been able to exercise every day, and wake up at 4:30am and go straight for a walk. Now those two habits are almost automatic I'm adding meditation into the mix, Tynan's method makes it effortless! Thank you : )

A good addition to your habit formation library

Any additional comments?

I've spent several months finding, reading/listening to every book I can find about habit formation. Some are rich with science to back up why habit formation is at the core of who we are. Others, like this one, are practical, down-to-earth and easy to digest.

Useful book

Love the content of the book. Good examples. However, there are production mistakes that annoy me in the Audible version.

Some Gold Nuggets But Very Distracting

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Had some good ideas but might be better to read the actual book as the performance was distracting.

How could the performance have been better?

There were weird cuts where the author/narrator messed up and didn't even finish the sentence. He also wasn't the best performer. It sounded like it was read in the guys basement with not great equipment (which I kinda suspect is the cast). For me it was quite distracting in trying to soak up the info.

Reads like a self-published e-book

I really liked the concepts in this book, and it's nice that the author spells out exact examples of how to implement them. I can also appreciate that the author is narrating his own book, and that is the only reason I gave the performance 2 stars instead of 1. Authors are not the same as performers, and so when an author narrates their own book, mistakes are more acceptable because they are really writers, not narrators. Bad narration can be made up for by good editing, but this book doesn't have good editing. At one point you can even hear the narrator ask himself how to say a word. This audio book is cheap and it's obvious when you are listening to it. But I guess you get what you pay for.

Straightforward and Relatable

Very good advice was given. My favorite parts were understanding that habits use up less of your willpower and that triggers can form both good and bad habits, so create triggers for the good ones. I look forward to listening again.

Great book but NO EXCUSE for the production issues

Narration:
At one point during the narration the narrator stops and says to himself "Why cant I say this word?" and then doesnt even finish that sentence. There are 2-3 other instances too in which the narrator fumbles or pauses. How hard would it have been to re-record sentences before putting it up on audible for people to buy?

Book:
A great practical approach to building long term habits especially for young individuals who have a strong habit of procrastinating.

Outtakes were still in the recording!!

When you hear the narrator goof up and then he says "why can't I say this ?" you know this has been edited by an amateur (the editing between chapters was pretty sloppy too). The rest of it was so dry I couldn't finish it and returned it.

Terrible performance

Cuts, noise, even the author mumbling "why can't I say this?" completely ruin the experience. You'd be better off with "The power of habit", by Charles Duhigg, read by the amazing Mark Chamberlain.

Best book to change the trajectory of your life

Where does Superhuman by Habit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is probably the best all-around book on personal development that a person could ever read. No filler, completely practical and actionable, and presented in a way that will change the way you look at your life. I wish that there was more out there like this.

What did you like best about this story?

This book is pure gold - total focus on a simple system with tons of actionable examples and advice.

Have you listened to any of Tynan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, but I'd say this is the best - and the others are great.

What did you learn from Superhuman by Habit that you would use in your daily life?

The idea of loading stages vs maintaining a habit, as well as thinking long term.

Any additional comments?

This book will change your life.

Great book

First off, great book with a good message. I recommend others to have a listen.

Although, it's hard to take his claims on work productivity seriously when he didn't take the time to edit out errors in the reading of the audiobook.
