I updated the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning. I am reading Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength Willpower by Roy F. Baumeister and John Tierney. This book is about the psychology of self regulation and self control. Self control seems to me to be a better term than willpower which has some very dark connotations.
