FonoBook is pleased to present Don't Eat The Marshmallow...Yet! written by world-renowned motivational speaker Joachim de Posada and Ellen Singer.

Arthur is a chauffeur who is intellectually gifted. Jonathan is no less bright than Arthur, equally hard-working, yet a billionaire. So why is Jonathan in the back seat of the limousine and Arthur in the front? What explains the difference between success and failure? Joachim de Posada found the answer in a Stanford University study of children who were able to delay gratification by not eating a marshmallow with the promise of receiving another one if they resisted eating the first for 15 minutes. Ten years later, the children who held out had grown up to be significantly more successful than those who had eaten their marshmallow immediately.

Posada saw the importance of delaying gratification in achieving success. Marshmallow resisters achieve high levels of success while others eat all their marshmallows at once, accumulating debt and dissatisfaction despite their occupations or incomes.

But it doesn't have to be that way. Using a simple parable and real-life examples, this life-changing audiobook shows you how the actions one makes today can pay off greatly tomorrow if you just don't eat the marshmallow...yet!

    " Introduced to me by Kirk Behrendt of Act Dental this very short 2 hour read tells a very powerful parable of a great tool for personal betterment. "Marshmallowing" is now a verb in my family and at my dental practice. A timely message for the financial times we find ourselves in today. "

    " Disappointed. I thought this guy was somehow involved in the actual study he blathers on about. Turns out he's just a motivational speaker who's bogarted this study's results to pad his own speaking schedule. It was all right enough of a read but I have to say, way way misleading. "
