Brilliant and timeless
Jim Rohn is eternal and this is a richer world for having received his wisdom over forty amazing years. this is a fabulous collection that you will enjoy over and again,
Good solid Trekkie fun
If you could sum up Captain to Captain in three words, what would they be?
Traditional, exciting, fun
What did you like best about this story?
This was an enjoyable book that bounced along at a good pace. It ends with a cliff hanger that was unexpected so well done for that. It loses a point for pandering to the gender neutral 'hir' pronoun for half the book which makes it really distracting trying to follow bits of the story.
Buy the book instead
Would you try another book written by Warren Farrell or narrated by Warren Farrell?
The book was excellent but this is just an interview. The other problem is that Dr Farrell comes across as badly muffled - the sound quality is really poor and it makes the whole thing pretty unsatisfactory.
A Scientific Study - not a practical listen
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
If you have an interest (in a dry sense) in the subject of willpower then you will enjoy this but I spent the whole book waiting for the aha moment but it never ever came. If you want to get something practical from this then you simply won't. The author has marketed this in such a way that it would seem to appeal to popular consumption but it is simply a thesis; clever perhaps but dry and lacking in any way that the reader can interpret and put into practice.
What could Walter Mischel have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Get to the point.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
The narrator was fine.
Do you think The Marshmallow Test needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Padded out and shallow
You can find better than this paltry and frankly useless and boring effort elsewhere. if you can focus through this book then you have no problem at all. about 20 minutes of slightly useful info crammed into 6 hours.

Awful in just about every way
written by an academic for God knows who, narrated by the author which was a bad decision. it might relieve anxiety by sending you to sleep but that's about it.

The author puts more emphasis on trying to be fun and funny than putting any real content into the book. I am struggling to find one single useful piece of content in this.
