Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength

getAbstract Summary: Get the key points from this book in less than 10 minutes. People with the best intentions often fall short of their self-improvement goals. Social psychologist Roy F. Baumeister collaborating with New York Times writer John Tierney explain why, and give you some tools to work with as they share the results of years of study of human self-control. Their presentation is too academic for a self-help guide to correcting bad habits, since it cites study after study, but it is a very interesting backgrounder. getAbstract recommends this information-heavy look at why just saying no doesn't work - and what you can do instead. Book Publisher: Penguin Group (USA)

Solidly grounded in psychology research. Felt a bit like reading for doctoral seminars in my PhD program ... except the book is written in an engaging and easy to read style, not the standard journal article. Vollständige Rezension lesen
