Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in psychology and research -- all with really compelling things to say about how to be smarter in being human.

Tonight's guest, social psychologist Dr. Roy Baumeister.

One of the most practical and helpful self-help books I've read recently is Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength, by Dr. Roy Baumeister and John Tierney -- on an issue we all have issues with: self-control -- how to have more of it and how to have less of what we do have depleted.

Many of the studies in the book are from Baumeister's own lab, and he promises to be a fascinating guest. I've already improved my life with insights from the book, like by understanding how willpower gets depleted so I can conserve mine for important things (like writing). I can't imagine that anyone who listens to this show will come away without tips for how they can improve their life -- and be a little more relaxed about the stuff they anguish over related to self-control.


Join me and all my fascinating guests live every week from 7-8pm Pacific, 10-11pm Eastern, and listen to all my previous shows and listen live at this link:
