Summary
"What is motivation? Why do we feel totally paralyzed to do certain things, and utterly unable to quit others? Too many people conclude, falsely, that they are just lazy, or lacking in willpower. But what they lack is a correct understanding of their own minds, of motivation, and the way that it operates ... This book is a self-help manual and an in-depth analysis of the psychology of motivation. It will teach you to stop procrastinating, kick your addictions, circumvent laziness and achieve your goals, by thoroughly understanding the way your mind works."-- Provided by publisher
