The Marshmallow Test: Mastering Self-Control

Walter Mischel

A child is presented with a marshmallow and given a choice: Eat one now, or wait and enjoy two later. What will he do? And what are the implications of his behavior later in life? Psychologist Walter Mischel argues that the ability to delay gratification is critical for a successful life—but is willpower prewired or can it be taught? In The Marshmallow Test, Mischel explains how self-control can be mastered and applied to challenges in everyday life—from weight control, quitting smoking, overcoming heartbreak, or planning for retirement.
