Publisher's Summary

Stop not doing what you know you should do!
You might think laziness, lack of willpower, and/or low motivation are to blame for the fact that you aren't achieving your goals. But fascinating research in the field of psychoneuroimmunology has revealed another, far more likely possibility. One with the potential to transform your life in a dramatic way.
The typical excuses for not doing what you know you should - I'm too stressed out... I don't have the time... I don't have the energy, etc. - are, in fact, manifestations of a complex, interconnected web of psychological, chemical, and neurological factors.
When activated, these factors can effectively paralyze you - making it virtually impossible for you to take the actions needed to create change in your life.
In other words, even if you're highly motivated... if you've got these internal circumstances operating, you aren't going to be able to do it.
But while the biochemistry may be complex, the solutions are actually quite simple.
Dr. Nick Hall reveals these solutions - and the fascinating science behind them - in I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It? You'll learn:

An extraordinarily powerful stress-fighting tool that very few people take advantage of.
An easy way to instantly regain control and stay focused in an emotional emergency.
Six things to do when you think you've taken on more than you can accomplish in the time you have.
The mistake almost everyone makes when they organize their to-do list.
A simple exercise that can instantly tell you which side of your brain is dominant at any given time.
The first-thing-in-the-morning action that will literally reset your internal clock and have a profoundly positive impact on your energy level for the rest of the day (and it is SO easy to do!).

Good, but not what I expected

This book is fascinating, yet not what I was expecting. Most of it is on nutrition and his the brain / body works, which was interesting to me but only because I am in healthcare. There was good ideas on beliefs, visualization, etc. However, the interview at the end was horrible. The "interviewer", some big-wig at Nightingale, had the most insincere candor and was obviously not there for the interview, and was a huge insult to our intelligence. Otherwise, a good listen.

Big Disappointment!

What disappointed you about I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It??

This is a 10-hour compilation of physiology/pathophysiology medical lectures. Seriously, 50 minutes of every hour is nothing but straight physiology and pathophysiology. And he doesn’t just graze the subject either he goes very deep into the subject passing multiple layers that will completely lose the average listener. The other 10 minutes actually has to do with what the title suggests. <br/><br/>Even being a medical professional myself I quickly became annoyed and wanted him to get to the point instead of describing every minute detail of the anabolic/catabolic response, neurological pathway, and the cellular chemical responses of the brain etc. <br/><br/>Honestly I felt a little conned when I found out this wasn’t an audio book but was just a bunch of lectures he compiled from speaking at various events. Sometimes he even asks questions to the audience and then you have to listen to some random person’s question/response. He even repeats himself too and uses the same examples from a previous lecture you listened too 2 hours prior. <br/><br/>Sure there are a few gems here and there but after the 1st hour I found myself wishing I purchased something else.

Would you ever listen to anything by Nick Hall again?

Probably not.

Disappointing and Not What I Was Hoping For

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A clear and concise plan to enable me to make changes to my physiology and thinking when required.

What could Nick Hall have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I would have like to feel that I have a relatively easy plan to follow that would allow me to change my physiology as required but this was lost in the explanations. A summary at the end of the book would have been helpful.

What three words best describe Nick Hall’s voice?


You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

On balance I have to say I am disappointed with this book. I do not feel that I am now any nearer doing what I want to do, if that makes sense. So I am rather disappointed. There were interesting scientific explanations about physiology which I suppose, in fairness, does shed light on why we don't do what we want but I was hoping for something more to take away

Any additional comments?

I do not feel the book was well organised as it seemed to jump from one area to another and back again.

It's like listening to a seminar not an audiobook. You feel like someone just pressed record illegally and now you've stumbled across it. Quality is that bad. He drags on and on about nothing. Lots of filler stories. I wouldn't recommend this at all.

info was useful. Though very very difficult listen

If you have the patience and can get past the self loving attitude of "Nick Hall" and his amazing self you can learn something. So.... if you can sift through his ego theres nuggets of knowledge.

Can't listen to it

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Improved Narration.

What was most disappointing about Nick Hall’s story?


How could the performance have been better?


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It??

I'd use a different narrator!

Any additional comments?

Do some peoples voice and the way they pronounce words grate on you. Well I have just purchased this audio book and started to listen to it, however, I don't think I can continue to listen to it as the narrator (who I believe is the author) simply grates on me.
