Scientific Secrets for Self Control

This audiobook is available from The Great Courses. This is a high level overview of the subject of self control. There are several interesting citations on what causes us to lose control. Overall I feel that the interesting part of this book is that it helps to give attention to the choices we make and the state of mind we are in when such choices are made. That said, there were a few examples that I felt were flimsy or one sided and this it felt like the research might have been swayed. Of course the marshmallow experiment is cited. Overall, it is a three hour listen and I feel it is worth your time if only to get your feet wet in the subject.
