The Willpower Instinct
How Self-Control Works, Why It Matters, and What You Can Do to Get More of It
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
John Lammergeier, 25 juli 2019
The entire book could have been compressed down into a 3 page article and should have been in my opinion. Not entirely bad due to good examples and some illustrations.
Cecilia af Jochnick, 8 februari 2018
Många praktiska tips, tankar och slutsatser är ordentligt uppbackade av forskningsresultat. Lättläst och rätt så rolig. Om jag sedan får bättre viljekraft återstår att se.

Recensioner i media
"What a liberating book! McGonigal explains the scientific reality of willpower, exploding the myths most of us believe. Stronger willpower--based on inspiring facts, not oppressive nonsense--is finally within everyone's reach." --Geoff Colvin, author of Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers From Everybody Else "The Willpower Instinct is a new kind of self-help book. Using science to explain the why and strategies for the how, McGonigal has created a must-read for anyone who wants to change how they live in both small and big ways." --Book Page "Each chapter could stand on its own as something helpful, but taken as a whole, this book could be downright life-altering. If you are trying to lose weight, become more successful at work, rid yourself of toxic habits...heck, if you're HUMAN, you need to read this book." --Library Thing "This book has tremendous value for anyone interested in learning how to achieve their goals more effectively. McGonigal clearly breaks down a large body of relevant scientific research and its applications, and shows that awareness of the limits of willpower is crucial to our ability to exercise true self control." --Jeffrey M. Schwartz, M.D., co-author of You Are Not Your Brain and author of bestselling Brain Lock " **** out of four." --USA Today Book Review "A fun and readable survey of the field, bringing willpower wisdom out of the labs." --TIME magazine
