Description

One of the world's most esteemed and influential psychologists, Roy F. Baumeister, teams with New York Times science writer John Tierney to reveal the secrets of self-control and how to master it.

Pioneering research psychologist Roy F. Baumeister collaborates with New York Times science writer John Tierney to revolutionize our understanding of the most coveted human virtue: self-control. Drawing on cutting-edge research and the wisdom of real-life experts, Willpower shares lessons on how to focus our strength, resist temptation, and redirect our lives. It shows listeners how to be realistic when setting goals, monitor their progress, and how to keep faith when they falter. By blending practical wisdom with the best of recent research science, Willpower makes it clear that whatever we seek - from happiness to good health to financial security - we won’t reach our goals without first learning to harness self-control.

Commentaires

"The psychologist Roy F. Baumeister has shown that the force metaphor has a kernel of neurobiological reality. In Willpower, he has teamed up with the irreverent New York Times science columnist John Tierney to explain this ingenious research and show how it can enhance our lives.... Willpower is an immensely rewarding book, filled with ingenious research, wise advice and insightful reflections on the human condition." (Steven Pinker, The New York Times Book Review

"Willpower is sure to inspire further groundbreaking research into the mechanics of willpower. One implication is already apparent. Since repeated behaviors eventually turn into habits, improving willpower long term requires a unique strategy - a habit of changing habits, of continually expanding our zones of comfort. One such practice, it seems, is the 'routine' of learning. That's a habit that this brilliant book will certainly nourish." (The Daily Beast)

"An accessible, empirically grounded guide to willpower and how best to deploy it to overcome temptation." (The Wall Street Journal)

excellent documentation

wish the authors had more faith in religion, but the empirical results of their studies are undeniable. love the approach and helps so much to know the background.

Fantastic Content Applicable to Everyone

This book itself is not exciting; however, the positive effect that this information can have on your life is cause for excitement. Baumeister explains how every day we have a limited amount of willpower and gives us tips and tricks to make the most of it, along with how to strengthen willpower over time. This book has helped and will continue to help me make the most of my willpower as I implement recommended practices into my life.

Eye opening and Insightful

one of the best books i have read as far as self improvement is concerned. The book uses a good strategy of having a real life character's story in each chapter, supplemented by numerous research findings to explain in relatively simple and intuitive ways the concepts of willpower and self control. The book is also witty with some funny anecdotes.

it's Okay

Basically a regurgitation of past studies results. Some good information on parenting. It was a recommended title from an associate. It was apparently more impactful for her. For me, mostly just a waste of time. No real takeaway that I wasn't already aware of and considered.

Awesome Book

The wisdom and principles set out in this book should be part of the standard curriculum of schools around the world and MUST be part of a compulsory university program for ALL undergraduate students. Do yourself a favour! Read the book, then re-read the book and turn this knowledge into a common practice of your everyday life.
