Previous events from FALL 2015:
WSGW plans to host another book club this year! Our next selection for 2015 will be The Willpower Instinct by Kelly McGonigal:
The first book to explain the new science of self-control and how it can be harnessed to improve our health, happiness, and productivity. After years of watching her students struggling with their choices, health psychologist Kelly McGonigal, Ph.D., realized that much of what people believe about willpower is actually sabotaging their success. Committed to sharing what the scientific community already knew about self-control, McGonigal created a course called “The Science of Willpower” for Stanford University’s Continuing Studies Program.
Informed by the latest research and combining cutting-edge insights from psychology, economics, neuroscience, and medicine, McGonigal’s book explains exactly what willpower is, how it works, and why it matters.
