The Willpower Instinct

Book Club

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.

- Description from Goodreads

Book discussion date will be on Tuesday, September 29, 2015, at 2 p.m. at Highland Bakery by Tech Tower. All are welcome, even if you haven’t read the book! If you have read the book, please come share your favorite parts with us. Please let us know if you plan to attend.

Past books read by WSGW have included Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg and Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell. Do you have a book suggestion? Please contact our Social Chair.
