This book provided very useful information regarding the scientific studies of willpower and presented many beneficial techniques to improve willpower. It definitely deserves at least two listenings to get all the information and to find which techniques work best for an individual. The presentation was good although I'd like to have heard the original author as she presents well as evidenced by her Ted Talk presentations. Definitely recommended and will read/listen again.
This is one of very few books I find myself constantly recommending to people. It provides so many useful strategies to improve self-control.
What I really like is that all of these strategies were tested in the real world. Every strategy is explained in detail as to how to do it and why it works, and each is followed with a real world example.
The hardest part is pacing yourself. Each technique can significantly improve your will power and this can make it exciting to try them all; however, trying to do them all at once can be overwhelming and might make it harder to stick with.
This book manages to be fun at the same time that it is teaching you important lessons about life. I'll be sharing this one far and wide.
Met and exceeded all expectations. Sometimes these books focus too much on the idea and not the science or proof behind the concept. This book provided countless relevant examples of willpower challenges and instructions on how to defeat your inner procrastinator.
The reader was fun to listen to and the content was very interesting, with a fair amount of examples to help give something to connect to as well as reiterate points while I was focusing on tasks at hand.
