Habits … – INTJs don’t need any of the self help crap, and believe
me, that’s what this book is although the author has tried his hardest
to mislead everyone with the title. It just seems that it’s a
productivity book. If you want to improve yourself, just read a good
book on Goal Setting (Brian Tracy’s good albeit a little disorganized),
read “The Power of Habit”, and finally read “Willpower: Rediscovering
the greatest human strength”. That’s all you need. If you still can’t
improve yourself, you’d still be better off introspecting and reading
books on psychology than resorting to self help crap. Really, all the
self help is the same shit repackaged again and again and worded
differently to be sold to people who’d rather read and procrastinate
rather than get up and actually improve yourself.
According to an introduction by Ray Bradbury, to a CD of a rerecording of the film score by William Stromberg conducting the Moscow Symphony Orchestra , Bradbury had suggested Bernard Herrmann to Truffaut. Bradbury had visited the set of Torn Curtain , meeting Alfred Hitchcock and Herrmann. When Truffaut contacted Bradbury for a conference about his book, Bradbury recommended Herrmann, as Bradbury knew Truffaut had written a detailed book about Hitchcock.  When Herrmann asked Truffaut why he was chosen over modern composers, such as the director's friends Pierre Boulez or Karlheinz Stockhausen , the director replied that "They'll give me music of the twentieth century but you'll give me music of the twenty first!"  Herrmann used a score of only string instruments , harp , xylophone , vibraphone , marimba and glockenspiel . As with Torn Curtain , Herrmann refused the studio's request to do a title song.
