Johnny lebt im 21. Jahrhundert und arbeitet als Kurier. In Johnnys Gehirn befindet sich ein Chip-Implantat, in dem 320 Gigabytes Daten gespeichert sind.Johnny verdient seinen Lebensunterhalt mit dem Schmuggel von Daten, und was seine Auftraggeber angeht, ist er keineswegs wählerisch. Aber sein neuester Job verursacht ihm – buchstäblich – gewaltige Kopfschmerzen: Die Informationen in seinem Implantat sind heiß; sie wurden einem mächtigen Pharma-Konzern gestohlen, und die Hintermänner wollen sie um jeden Preis zurück. Zu allem Übel ist der Chip in Johnnys Gehirn auch noch überladen und droht durchzubrennen, doch der Download-Code, mit dem sie abgerufen werden könnten, ist verschwunden. Johnnys Auftraggeber sind tot, und eine Armee von Yakuza-Killern ist ihm auf den Fersen...Mit Johnny Mnemonic schuf Cyberpunk-Legende William Gibson im Jahre 1981 eine Kultfigur des literarischen Cyberpunk. 1995 drehte der Künstler Robert Longo (Arena Brains) auf der Grundlage der gleichnamigen Erzählung (und nach dem Drehbuch von William Gibson) den spektakulärsten Cyberpunk-Film der 1990er Jahre – mit Keanu Reeves als Johnny, Dina Meyer als Jane, Ice-T als J-Bone, Barbara Sukowa als Anna Kalmann, Henry Rollins als Spider und Dolph Lundgren als Preacher.Terry Bissons Novellisierung gilt als kongeniale literarische Weiterentwicklung des Films und der Motive Gibsons.

Seit kurzem versuchen Hirnforscher, Verhaltenspsychologen und Soziologen gemeinsam neue Antworten auf eine uralte Frage zu finden: Warum tun wir eigentlich, was wir tun? Was genau prägt unsere Gewohnheiten? Anhand zahlreicher Beispiele aus der Forschung wie dem Alltag erzählt Charles Duhigg von der Macht der Routine und kommt dem Mechanismus, aber auch den dunklen Seiten der Gewohnheit auf die Spur. Er erklärt, warum einige Menschen es schaffen, über Nacht mit dem Rauchen aufzuhören (und andere nicht), weshalb das Geheimnis sportlicher Höchstleistung in antrainierten Automatismen liegt und wie sich die Anonymen Alkoholiker die Macht der Gewohnheit zunutze machen. Nicht zuletzt schildert er, wie Konzerne Millionen ausgeben, um unsere Angewohnheiten für ihre Zwecke zu manipulieren. Am Ende wird eines klar: Die Macht von Gewohnheiten prägt unser Leben weit mehr, als wir es ahnen.
