MACHIAVELLIAN TEMPTATION

Fascinating sounding book. Have ordered it sans delay (currently out of print, dammit) and look forward to licking all my bad habits.

Quote, my "willpower is not like a dam that can block the torrent of self-indulgence ... Today, we know that free will is bounded. People can change their lives, but ordering change is not simple because many things, even within ourselves, are beyond our direct control.

Researchers have come to understand the structure of habits — cue, routine, reward.

    One of the most sinister exchanges about temptation - Job 1
    Lord “From where do you come?”
    Satan “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it.”
