    Story

    I heard an interview with the authors on this book, and decided to seek it out. It is the kind of nonfiction book that was entertaining and educational, and I think could make a big difference in a lot of peoples’ lives. It is by no means a self-help book, but I think it could switch on a few light bulbs and help explain why many of us have problems with will power.
