I need to start with the obvious this guy is one of those writers One of those writers that make you want to track him down and hurt him And not just him maybe even his pets too He assumes you are as thick as dog shit and that you won t get what it is he is talking about unless he makes it painfully PAINFULLY clear He has missed his calling He really should have gone into the self help book market let s face it assuming your readers are dumb in that market is just responding to reality You might be wondering why I gave this book three stars given I wanted to find ways to hurt the author Well the problem is that some of the ideas here are not insane in fact some are really well worth thinking about It s just that someone someone who also needs hunted down now that I think about it has told this guy you need to tell a story And while this is often excellent advice you also need to remember that people are reading your book for a reason and that reason isn t to cry over the last moments of a drug addict s life or to find out how the skunk lady got laid No it is to find out about the affect of habits and what we can do to change the habits of a life time that are stuffing up our livesI ve been reading lots of Bourdieu lately He talks of Habitus what he calls the feel for the game but basically the habits we have that are so unconscious we don t even know they are habits and so therefore have no idea what a huge part they play in shaping the kinds of people we are So we tend to think that because we wouldn t do something someone else clearly has done that automatically ualifies us for the golden stamp of merit Whereas so much of what we do in life is either non rational or automatic having those automatic structures implanted in us from no age is a matter of luck than of rational deliberationThis guy stuffs up his argument at the end by not having the conviction of what his view on habits was telling him He tells a long long long story of a woman that lost everything through gambling Terribly sad and all that But obviously this book is written in America and so nothing can come between the rights of rich people to take money from poor people So the fact that casinos do everything to manipulate you so that you end up with nothing is YOUR fault not theirs have you no self control Have you no free will I think this guy should read Sam Harris s new book Either that or he needs to also argue that it should be ok for drug dealers to offer kids drugs at schools and in the streets if one is wrong it isn t at all obvious why the other is right And if not drugs to kids then drugs to adults unless I m missing something the same argument appliesThis book is uite chilling in that it explains in very long and all too often boring detail in fact endless bloody detail just how companies like Target are targeting you and manipulating you to buy and buy and buy Yet again this is presented as if it was nothing to be concerned about but I struggled to read it as something I should just shrug and get over When I first learned about data warehousing it sent a cold shiver down my spine I have never had Fly Buys or any other of those loyalty programs that give those arseholes all of my details so they can work out how to better market to people like me I m manipulated enough in life without needing to provide billionaires with better weapons to trip me upThe information in this book is very worthwhile But if you ever needed proof that Gladwell has lots to answer for this book is Item A on the case for the prosecution And what the hell is it about American Football I hope to God it isn t nearly as uninteresting to watch as it is to read about No wonder Americans invade countries at the drop of a hat anything to get away from two down on
