The Marshmallow Test: Understanding Self-Control and How to Master it

Dr. Mischel's book explains what is willpower and how can it be mastered. The book's suggestions are based on decades of researches with people living in various social environments (from Stanford to Bronx). The tests made with 6 years-olds were followed up for many decades by other tests with the same people to show how life unfolds with the ability of delay gratification. The author makes some important statements that are critical to overcome difficult life changes and making major decisions. The Marshmallow test can truly influence our current view of human nature.
