    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.

    What did you love best about The Willpower Instinct?

    This information offered in the book is excellent. Very thought provoking and useful.


    What other book might you compare The Willpower Instinct to and why?

    The Power of Habit-The Power of habit gives lots of information on habits, this book gives you the skills to act on the information.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was slow and annoying. I found myself regularly tuning out and having to go back. If given a do over I would much rather read the book than listen to it. Also, interestingly- the author of the book has a better voice. Not sure why SHE didn't narrate it herself.


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

    No- too much to take in all at once. Best to digest the information and try bit by bit to enact in your own life.

    As the largest and most sensitive sexual organ in the body, a healthy human brain enhances your sex life and heightens sensation. A troubled brain, however, makes emotional and physical connection with others difficult. So forget the implants, the fad diets, and the pills. Learning about this intriguing and sexy organ is the key to your sexual satisfaction.

    Ronald Albury says: "Great book - for some"
    "This is not a how to manual"
    Overall

    This is a very interesting book regarding the brain and sex. Lots of fun facts regarding how sex affects our brain chemistry, fertility, longevity, chances of getting cancer, strokes, etc. I enjoyed it immensely.

    What is self-esteem? A type of confidence? Or something far greater? In Self-Esteem, best selling author Caroline Myss casts a new light on this often misunderstood subject, redefining self-esteem as an actual core power that is essential to our evolutionary progress.

    Rebecca says: "The BEST Book/Recording on Self Esteem EVER."
    "A great listen for those ready to change."
    Overall

    I have enjoyed this a great deal. She casts self esteem in a whole new light and encourages you to do more than listen and hope that things will change. Take her suggestions and watch yourself grow. Just one simple thing like- keeping your word to yourself is making all the difference for me. I keep my word when I commit to something for others in my life but I'm pretty good at sabataging myself. That simple concept was a light bulb moment for me.
