Willpower

Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength

(1)
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 readers 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.
Rezension
"An immensely rewarding book, filled with ingenious research, wise advice and insightful reflections on the human condition." - THE NEW YORK TIMES (Steven Pinker)

"An accessible, empirically grounded guide to willpower and how best to deploy it to overcome temptation. 'Willpower' offers no shortage of helpful strategies to compensate for weakness of will" - WALL STREET JOURNAL

"Brilliant."
- THE DAILY BEAST

"Baumeister and Tierney use their appealingly upbeat voice to explain the intricate call-and-response between the failure of self-control and its problematical results."
- KIRKUS REVIEWS

"Willpower (the thing) lies at the curious intersection of science and behavior. Willpower (the book) lies at the intersection of Roy Baumeister, an extraordinarily creative scientist, and John Tierney, a phenomenally perceptive journalist. Ignore it at your peril."- - Stephen J Dubner, author of FREAKONOMICS
