Overview

Author Summary & Quote from Eminent Psychologist Dr. Roy F. Baumeister:

The first topic in this book about sustainably increasing willpower regards my, the author's, novel conclusion. Specifically, addicts or those with impulse-control issues should have an easier time building the willpower needed to overcome their problems by their, at first, strengthening certain, seemingly insignificant character traits that are, in fact, fundamental to the establishment of personal self-control. Two such traits would be neither interrupting others nor speaking with a mouth full of food. About this first topic and conclusion of mine, the following is a quote from the greatly distinguished professor, Dr. Roy F. Baumeister, who is one of our planet's most influential psychologists and a groundbreaking expert in the study of willpower:

"[Rabbi Gruber's new understanding] is a good idea and much in keeping with the way I am thinking about [matters of willpower]. All self-control capabilities are interrelated, so those who fail at small things ([such as] table manners) may be more likely to fail at big ones ([such as] addictions). ...[The Rabbi's work is] very good. Conquering...small tasks is a great first step toward better self-control."
