Sterner provides his personal experience developing discipline and practice, providing useful and implementalbe suggestions for a person trying to gain more discipline and focus in life. I took quotes from the book and used them in a daily reflection to improve my focus and discipline. The book is not intended as a research paper on mindfulness or practice, but as a practical guide built on first person experience. I recommend the book to others and have bought a couple extra copies to share with family and friends. I recommend this book over authors like Gladwell ("Outliers") who tend to cite papers and sound authoritative but do not always get the science right or develop helpful suggestions that a person can use to change their own behavior. It is also more accessible to a western audience then many excellent mindfulness books by authors such as Thich Nhat Hanh (The Essential Writings is recommended). I would give the book 5 starts for how useful it has been in my life, but Sterner does get a bit wordy in places -- still an excellent book you can use to change your life.Was this review helpful?
