Better Title: "The Catch-22 of Self-Discipline"
Let me sum up the advice of this book in a single sentence: To develop self-discipline, you should do lots of things every day that require self-discipline. I kid you not. I think for most people, if they had the self-discipline required to do these things each day, they wouldn't be reading a book on how to develop the self-discipline required to do the things every day that doing will lead to stronger self-discipline. There are some good tools in the discussion of how to avoid some common pitfalls, so it's not a total waste, but it could be half as long. As editor, I would lose the long section inviting the reader to do many things that if he/she had the discipline to do in the first place they wouldn't be reading this book. Or, I would at least acknowledge the Catch-22 inherent in that advice, and explain how some of the techniques might work. I'm not convinced that forcing myself to take a cold shower every day is really going to build the sort of self-discipline I'm looking for. What I really think is that maybe Martin has watched one too many Bond or Bourne films, and in the end, I blame the editor more than the author for not trimming some of that self-help fat. But who am I to throw stones? The man's written books. I haven't. But I don't take five-minute cold showers either (unless there's a bet involved, and then Tim Ferris can explain the purpose of that).
