Science: Roy Baumeister & John Tierney: Mastering Self-Control
In one of the most-cited papers in social-science literature, psychologist Roy Baumeister discovered that willpower actually operates like a muscle: It can be strengthened with practice and fatigued by overuse. It's hard work resisting temptation, but Baumeister and New York Times science writer John Tierney, authors of Willpower, share modern lessons in building willpower--and once you master them, happiness becomes more achievable.
