Review: The Marshmallow Test: Mastering Self-Control

The Marshmallow Test: Mastering Self-Control The Marshmallow Test: Mastering Self-Control by Walter Mischel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mischel's text is a great book for any of us to better understand and develop our self-control in different environments. What Mischel does well to demonstrate how lack of self-control in one area isn't any indicator of poor self-control elsewhere. In fact, it might be an indicator that the person does have better self-control elsewhere because this is an area where that person doesn't. But Mischel goes beyond the traditional "marshmallow text" that much of his research began with and looks at a lot of different elements that contribute to how one can understand, express, and learn self-control.
