  • 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
