The Book

In this lecture series Dr. DeWall, an expert in self-control research, covers the science around self-control and its importance when dealing with money, fitness, personal relationships, and more.

He introduces the general theories behind self-control: what it is, how it works, and how you can take steps to improve it. Topics covered include:

  • The importance of delayed gratification in better individual well-being in everything from higher self-worth to less sensitivity to rejection.
  • The limited resource model theory: self-control relies on limited energy that becomes depleted after use.
  • The link between the prefrontal cortex and aggression.

Green. These lectures are a ‘must-listen’ because of the limited understanding that general people have on the topic. Dr. DeWall is an expert on the topic. He ensures that the lectures are readable, insightful and have clear next steps for individuals to follow.
