Reviews

"The Marshmallow Test is a tour de force. Despite its serious academic content, it wears its learning lightly ... this book will make [Mischel] as much of a household name as his marshmallows are." -- Natalie Gold * The Times * "This is a complex book that explores human nature, neuroscience and genetics, enlivened by a sprinkling of anecdotes. It's also a book that can show you how to change your behaviour: whether it's finally setting up that pension, cutting your alcohol intake or shunning the marshmallows for good." -- Rosamund Urwin * Evening Standard * "This is a genial, optimistic book and a rather soothing read ... it provides an important and largely painless insight into a profound transformation in psychology" * The Sunday Times * "Walter Mischel is one of the most influential psychologists of the 20th century, and The Marshmallow Test will make him one of the most influential in this century, too." * Steven Pinker * "A top five psychology title" * Independent on Sunday *
