I have a review of “The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business,” by New York Times investigative reporter Charles Duhigg, up on The Daily Beast. The short version: I recommend it. The slightly longer version: Duhigg uses the Patriots’ loss to the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship Game in 2007 to make a point, and, since it’s an event that I am painfully familiar with, I noticed that he got a couple details wrong. My brain is filled with pointless things.
