If you want to make positive changes in your life and achieve your long-term goals, I can't think of a better way to do it than to learn how to become more self-disciplined.
Science has figured out a lot of interesting aspects of self-discipline and willpower, but most of this knowledge is buried deep inside long, boring scientific papers. If you'd like to benefit from these studies without actually reading them, this audiobook is for you. I've done the job for you and researched the most useful and viable scientific findings that will help you improve your self-discipline.
Here are just a few of things you will learn from this audiobook:

Great book!

One of the first books that should be read by this author. it explains so much about the role dopamine plays in willpower and finally dispels the myth that willpower is a finite resource.

Good As Gold

Would you listen to How to Build Self-Discipline again? Why?

I got the book a week ago and I have lessened to it 3 time and have taken notes.

What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Build Self-Discipline?

Towards the end of the book he list 7 traps that can slip you up and then after explaining them he gives you ways to get around them. Some of these are blind spot that I didn't even think about before going thru this book.

Have you listened to any of John Gagnepain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes But it is a lot of information to take in all in one shot.

Any additional comments?

This book is not long and not expensive. If this is an area that you think you need help or guidance in its worth a shot.
