Great book that has some interesting parallels in new thought spirituality. I think the class would be good to take.
Fascinating information. Useful just reading. I have more will power just understanding how the mind works. I will put more exercises into use for more effect.
This book unlike the other books on self control and will power it explains the reasoning behind your actions and what your mind does when you procrastinate.
I liked this audiobook a lot. I always prefer audio books read by the authors but this is ok. Overall, the content is amazing and useful and I strongly suggest to listen to it! Ciao:-)
this book is very practical and easy to follow. the author explains some great techniques on how to use and control willpower and also explains how willpower is affected by various situations and emotions. all in all, it was a very informative listen with some great applicable techniques and recommendations
Just finished my first listening, it's a fine book and i will go through it again taking notes and to organize a plan for my willpower challenges
I really like this book (minus a few swear words). I feel it gave a different outlook on will power and ways to control wants, cravings and bad habits. It also has a good outlook on how to push forward, stay motivated and remember the future you!
This book is amazing. Everything that McGonigal asserts is backed with heaps of research. I learned about so much more than just willpower. How society manipulates us using research on willpower, how hardwired our brain is to give-in to basic instincts for survival that over time have resulted in overeating, procrastination etc., Knowing why your brain makes you think you need something and how it is really the want not the product that satisfies your brain (temporarily) helps you overcome bad habits.
The only downside is I have watched the author on youtube and would have loved to hear this in her voice or at least in a female voice. The male narration was distracted and added nothing to the book.
But the ideas are so valuable, I had to take notes.
An excellent read for anyone looking to make a lifestyle change! Definitely listen through to the end because there are some gems towards the end!
