Review: This book provides information that I believe should be common knowledge. It should be read by people of all ages and walks of life. Simple powerful ideas backed by science that can gradually change the course of your life professionally, your health and even life expectancy. As I was reading I was discussing the concepts with my daughter and my husband and it initiated very interesting and productive discussions.
I found topics on willpower and anxiety especially beneficial for me.
