Dear Megan,

The following are books I read in the last year and enjoyed;

John Tierney and Roy Baumeister Will Power: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength.

Susan Cain Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking.

Both are written for the layman but do a good job of describing the science behind their conclusions.

Keep reading! Ray Finn, Ph.D.
