    To market your business, reach new customers, and create long-lasting loyalty, you need one indispensable element: CONTENT. Whether it’s bite-sized tweets that allow you to forge relationships on Twitter, blog posts that give your readers must-have advice, ebooks or white papers that engage (and don’t bore), videos that share the human side of your company, interactive webinars that deliver a valuable learning experience, or podcasts that can be downloaded and listened to on the fly (and more!) . . .

    Stephen Guyer says: "Average at best, narration needs a lot of work."
    "Solid content, so-so delivery"

    Story

    Let's face it, after hearing some great performers on audible, it can be a letdown when an author (i.e., professional writer, amateur performer) chooses to read their own stuff no matter how well-intentioned. Here I think they do the material a bit of a disservice by opting to self-deliver --- it just doesn't have the power and clarity of a professional reader, and that means you're going to miss some good material by not being as fully engaged. That being said, it's well-researched an written - you should read it.

    Based on Stanford University psychologist Kelly McGonigal's wildly popular course The Science of Willpower, The Willpower Instinct is the first book to explain the new science of self-control and how it can be harnessed to improve our health, happiness, and productivity. Informed by the latest research and combining cutting-edge insights from psychology, economics, neuroscience, and medicine, The Willpower Instinct explains exactly what willpower is, how it works, and why it matters.

    Niv says: "life changing one of the best I read"

    Story
    Would you listen to The Willpower Instinct again? Why?

    Yes, even just picking a chapter at random is fun, and a good way to get something new from a 2nd listening. Good resource.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Balanced servings of research-based findings on willpower, anecdotes, and suggestions for practice and mindfulness.


    What about Walter Dixon’s performance did you like?

    Nice presentation - well modulated and conversational reader.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no; better digested gradually.


    Any additional comments?

    You can't help but get some really helpful ideas plus more than a few "aha" moments regarding human behavior.
