A good approach to the science of will power.
that habits basically carve pathways in your brain that are never re-written. Rather we need to alter a component of the pathway to overcome the most deeply ingrained habits. A very powerful idea (supported by science).
I have listened to this book and the Willpower Instinct within the last 4 months. I prefer the Willpower Instinct to this though both are good books. Some of the material between the two is redundant, but that is not my basis for preference (that would be unfair -randomness of order of listening should not be a basis for a review).
This book meanders a bit and gets into some more obscure discussion, whereas Willpower Instinct moves a bit more and keeps things more engaging. The books starts well (with good concepts and science) and ends well. I do think the closing of this book is very strong. The last chapter or two are interesting and really snaps the whole science of willpower and habit into focus.
