Townsend Professor of Law, Yale Law School and a professor at Yale's School of Management about his most recent book: "Carrots and Sticks. Unlock the Power of Incentives to Get Things Done" "For about thirty years there has been increasing study of how people try to manage, and sometimes succeed in managing, their own behavior: smoking, eating, procrastinating, drinking, losing their temper, fears and phobias, games, fingernails . . . . The list goes on. Here is an entertaining report on one of the basic techniques of overcoming what the ancient Greeks called "weakness of will." All can enjoy it; many may discover it therapeutic." —Thomas C. Schelling, 2005 Nobel Laureate in Economics.
