5.0 out of 5 stars This book might help you turn "won't power" into willpower, July 14, 2009
This review is from: The Skinny on Willpower: How to Develop Self Discipline (Perfect Paperback)
This book is designed to give information to those busy people who don't have time to read more lengthy books. It contains a wealth of information in little space.

I don't know anyone keen on self improvement who hasn't moaned at one time or another, "If I just had more will power I could . . ." Sometimes it feels as if our willpower is won't power.

This book talks in detail about will power and how to get yourself in a better position to accomplish your goals. It is a startlingly different book - short but powerful chapters with stick figures illustrating the point they are making. Don't let the stick figures put you off-guard and make you think this book doesn't have content for grown-ups. It definitely does.

You will learn the 15 points for developing will power and self discipline. (and you will learn that discipline is not a dirty word). I work in the "self improvement" arena and I highly recommend it.

Irene,

I am impressed with both your reviews and the books you have reviewed. I plan to read them all.

I enjoyed this book and have read all of Jim Randel's Skinny On books. His latest is really great. It should be read by all high school and college students about to experience life on their own. It is called: Street Smarts Beyond The Diploma.

Great job!

Tom
