Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest
Roy F. Baumeister and John Tierney
Because I’m interested in self-improvement and personal growth, Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength is one of the most influential books I’ve read. The authors first define willpower, then discuss why it’s important to individuals and society, inform the reader on how it becomes depleted, demonstrate the link between self-awareness and willpower and most importantly, educate the reader on how to bolster their own willpower.
Learning more about mental strength and incorporating the practical tips presented in this book has helped me immensely, especially in the areas of healthy eating and adapting to new situations. Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength has changed my life and is definitely my book of the year!
