Summary
  • Psychologist Walter Mischel, designer of the well-known Marshmallow Test, explains what self-control is and how to master it
  • Mischel has proven that the ability to delay gratification is critical for a successful life, predicting higher SAT scores, better social and cognitive functioning, a healthier lifestyle and a greater sense of self-worth. But is willpower prewired, or can it be taught? He explains how self-control can be mastered and applied to challenges in everyday life, and changes the way you think about who we are and what we can be
