    Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this one. For most of the duration of the story, it was a really fun ride, but then it got to the codas and suddenly showed a tremendous emotional resonance that raised it to absolute brilliance. I very highly recommend it, especially to fans of the often cheesy sci-fi tv that it does a great job parodying.

    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.

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

    I intend to listen to it many times. In fact I put a bookmark before each chapter to make it easier to do so.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    N/A


    What about Walter Dixon???s performance did you like?

    He had a very nice, even, conversational tone.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't really laugh or cry, but I had many aha moments.


    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely brilliant book. Far more than just a simple self-help book,the author gives hard, scientific data to back up all of her claims and offers practical strategies for dealing with any conceivable willpower challenge.
