"If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking."
by Lao Tzu
An Eastern classic of timeless wisdom
A mountain of golden advice on self-control, stress, meditation, stopping rumination and others, supported by ample data from experiments and evolutionary biology. Discusses amazing concepts like willpower fatigue, effects of self-forgiveness and ironic rebound, and great techniques to be applied in daily life. Does get a little lengthy and wordy near the end.
by Theodore Bryant
Great tips on increasing your self-discipline and how to think of it as a "learnable skill" rather than a fixed trait. Discusses visualization, positive scripting, rewarding, relaxation and avoiding harmful effects of self-criticism
Discusses the power of conscious choice of thoughts and how thoughts have the power to change our DNA and our brain's wiring. Author's strong religious tone may be a hindrance to some but a good read overall
