Better Title: "The Catch-22 of Self-Discipline"

Any additional comments?

Let me sum up the advice of this book in a single sentence: To develop self-discipline, you should do lots of things every day that require self-discipline. I kid you not. I think for most people, if they had the self-discipline required to do these things each day, they wouldn't be reading a book on how to develop the self-discipline required to do the things every day that doing will lead to stronger self-discipline. There are some good tools in the discussion of how to avoid some common pitfalls, so it's not a total waste, but it could be half as long. As editor, I would lose the long section inviting the reader to do many things that if he/she had the discipline to do in the first place they wouldn't be reading this book. Or, I would at least acknowledge the Catch-22 inherent in that advice, and explain how some of the techniques might work. I'm not convinced that forcing myself to take a cold shower every day is really going to build the sort of self-discipline I'm looking for. What I really think is that maybe Martin has watched one too many Bond or Bourne films, and in the end, I blame the editor more than the author for not trimming some of that self-help fat. But who am I to throw stones? The man's written books. I haven't. But I don't take five-minute cold showers either (unless there's a bet involved, and then Tim Ferris can explain the purpose of that).

Eh... NOTHING ground breaking

It was boring. The reader, the content, all of it. Mad I paid money for it.

Waste of time

This was a total waste of time and money. Advice like take cold showers to succeed. I'm glad the cost and time was not much.

Young, somewhat bland, unhelpful.

Did not like the athoritarian tone wrapped in trite, short-sighted truisms that if true...everybody already knows. I'd you read this book and find yourself likin it then maybe you've never read a well written book. Prose in its finest form it is not! Careful not to go too deeply or you will regret the time stolen by a blowhard know it all who writes about as well as a competent 6th grader. Good day.

Daily Self-Disciple

I could not finish this book. The content is much to basic (preschool of discipline) and the readers voice was irritating. I want my money back. I give it zero stars.

no real notable advice or strategies.

was expecting more strategy but instead most of the book was creating open loops to his other products while offering minimal value.

Could not get through it. Bored to tears

What would have made Daily Self-Discipline better?

Some actual tips early on might have been helpful. I skipped the first two chapters as I am not overweight......I honestly could not listen to this, horrible.

Listen to a youtube motivational compilation and you will get more out of it than this book.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment

Common Sense

I wished I could have returned this book. Nothing new. The author has no scientific basis to say what he affirms. Mostly, common sense. I feel ripped off.

short but brilliant

it is always the sign of a good book if you repeat what you have learnt to everyday conversations and these are such simple tips and so well explained that i am quoting it to everyone!

Made me feel motivated to get up and do something!

Some really interesting ideas on how to start gaining daily self discipline and how to keep up motivation once you take on something in your life. I will definitely implement some of the ideas and practices.

The book you've been looking for!

Very good points spelling out how the lack of discipline occurred in the first place. To be honest, this is what I had been looking for for years without realising it! Having it clearly spelled out in front of you allows you to see clearly, the areas where improvement is required, and tells you how to exercise the muscles to improve it. I feel reassured I am on the right path now that I know how to improve!
