    " A two-weeks class on improving self-control in 10 chapters, with chapter one introducing the basics, chapter ten summarizing the class, and chapter 2-9 each specializing on one big "willpower challenge". Very interesting book. Includes not only theories to help you get to know better about how our minds work but also very practical suggestions and experiments to deal with each "willpower challenge". This book changes the way I view myself in a lot of aspects. Very helpful. Like it a lot. "
