Идея лежащая в основе книги очень хорошая... и не раз встречается в других книгах по самосовершенствованию. Причем другие писатели умудряются разъяснить ее в рамках одной главы. этого вполне достаточно. Здесь же автор натужно растягивет повествование на требуемое издателем количество знаков. В результате чтение превращается в бесконечную коровью жвачку.

Don’t Eat the Marshmallow Yet, is a very motivating novel written by Joachim de Possada and Ellen Singer. It seems like this story is very closely related to a marshmallow, but the word “marshmallow” is actually a symbolic word which the author uses to talk about both temptation and reward. This book is mainly composed of dialogues between Mr. Patient and his chauffeur, Arthur, and the story develops as Arthur, a young man who was living a complacent life, starts to change his mind as he begins ...more

This story is based on a study from Stanford. Each kids in the separate room was each given a marshamllow. The objective is that if the kids do not eat the marshmallow for 30 minutes, they will be awarded another marshmallow. It turns out that kids who waited and got two marshmallows had much more successful lives than kids who ate without waiting.

The story starts with two main protagonist: Arthur and Jonathan. Arthur is a chauffeur of Jonathan, a billionaire. Arthur one day asks Jonathan 'how

“Don’t Eat the Marshmallow…Yet!” written by Joachim de Posada, is famous of “Marshmallow story” in Korea. I read this book first about 5 years ago. The book was covered with pink color and marshmallow picture, looked so lovely and interesting for me. At first, I thought that it might be a kind of fantasy story such as “Harry Potter”. However there was nothing relative with fantasy. It was about dream, planning and saving money. But the story was more interested than my expectation. When I read t ...more

Introduced to me by Kirk Behrendt of Act Dental this very short 2 hour read tells a very powerful parable of a great tool for personal betterment. "Marshmallowing" is now a verb in my family and at my dental practice. A timely message for the financial times we find ourselves in today.

Don't Eat The Marshmallow Yet is a story about a hard-working billionaire and his success in life. The author writes about a story about the main character, Arthur and his chaperon limo driver, Jonathon, who is equally intelligent and rich. This book shows why they are separated in their levels of achievement and success. This book also ties in a research study that was done at Stanford University with children that were left in a room and given a choice of eating a marshmallow or waiting 15 min ...more

The Marshmallow Experiment by Dr. Walter Gismel did an experiment where 4 year old children were left with a marshmallow for 5 minutes on the promise if successful, they would be rewarded.
In follow up studies, those who did not eat the marshmallow were much more successful in life because they could delay gratification.
I had chosen this book first because of the title but also Daniel Goleman, the author of Emotional Intelligence was referenced.
The examples are very simplistic.
Quick read!

The self-help book "Don't Eat the Marshmallow Yet!" by Joachim de Posada is recommended to everybody. After reading this book, it made me very satisfied and felt like I have learned another valuable idea. This book is the story about a Chairman of a enormous company and his chauffeur having a talk every morning and afternoon going and coming from work. Although they both are intelligent and clever people, one is a chairman of a leading company and one is his chauffeur. The chairman tells a story ...more
This is an amazing book about Arthur and Jonathan. Arthur drives Jonathans (the millionair)car. While driving the car, Jonathan teaches him how when he was a kid they did an experiment where the teachers gave every kid a marshmallow and told them if they did not eat it yet, they would get another one. Jonathan was one of the kids who did not eat the marshmallow and lived his life based on the experiment.
I can connect to how Jonathan did not eat the marshmallow because I have to save things on

I had to read this book this year for summer reading. It was assigned because it goes along with my high school's philosophy and our mission statement, and our director wanted the students to understand more about what we are trying to do with out program. I read it in about an hour, and was able to understand the messages that Joachim de Posada wrote about. I have to admit, it was a little bit cheesy, but it is a parable, and is meant to get a lesson across in a story. I liked how the character ...more

Simple but powerful idea.

The Russian translation of the title is not correct though. I wouldn't translate marshmallow as "marmalade". First of all, marshmallow is already being sold there so people know what it is. Second, if the editors or translators wanted to use another word I would use zephyr instead. But that is just my opinion. :)

Few lessons presented in book have been mentioned in other motivational books. However, the author repeats those in a very interesting way through the marshmallow study and the dialogue between two main characters. This book is for anyone who wants to learn how to become more successful not only in work but also in life.

Don’t eat the marshmallow yet shows how to be successful in long term. This book it telling is that if you get over a temptation later on there’s going to be a reward to it. Even there’s no certain date if you work hard and just be satisfied with what you have can lead you to successful person. I learned a lot from this book. We all should see further so that we could be more successful in the future. I liked how there was stories about some people who were successful by delaying gratification. ...more

I'd heard of the marshmallow study but did not realise there was a book all about the theory, but am so excited that I found it! This book is just great and gets the marshmallow story across so well - a must read for people of all ages

This book is about a businessman named Jonathan who tells these stories to his driver named Charlie. Jonathan see's how Charlie is a great guy, but is too young to be doing nothing but driving someone else's car. Jonathan tells Charlie stories about how to build patience and resistance to temptations. I believe this is a great book for those who want to build a different life; for someone ready for a new challenge. There is a saying in the book that really captured my attention. " The greatest t ...more

If I knew that this book is more of "motivation" than a complicated method, I wouldn't read it. To my surprise, the book gave me totally the opposite, more motivation with simple method. The result is a book that may be the beginning of life changing for me!
The book has a miilion summary around the internet, yet, I recommend reading it slowly and follow the progress of the improvements that "Aurther" went through to make success in financial matter.

A nice little book based on the Marshmallow study done by Walter Mischel during the 1960s at Stanford University. He placed children alone in a room with a Marshmallow for 15 minutes and if they didn't eat it they would get an extra marshmallow. He then compared the success of those that ate and those that didn't eat the marshmallow and found that those that didn't eat the marshmallow had become more successful so this book is all about not going for the marshmallow, the instant gratification.

Nice little book. Have expected more of it. The simplicity- yes, a plus, but kinda naive way of having it thought quite plane dialogs... Reminded me of dialogs in study books from school times. Still digesting if it might be cause of translation difficulties.

The philosophy is nice, the video of 4-year kids on YouTube is funny, but it doesn't suggest too much to think about. Plus the practical examples given in the book don't bring too much practical approach in reality after finishing reading th

Leí este libro, seguramente unas 3 veces.
Era lo que había en casa, y bueno, recuerdo que me gustó bastante.
La historia era interesante, si bien no tenía grandes giros de eventos o sorpresas inesperadas, ya que su propósito era transmitir un mensaje de ayuda, me gustó.
El mensaje en si, es bueno también, habla sobre paciencia; trabajar duro por nuestros sueños y ser pacientes en la hora de conseguirlos.
Es interesante, y no es difícil de leer. Es bueno.

Понравилось. Прочел книгу в один присест - за время двухчасового перелета. Де Посада раскрывает вроде простую тему: терпи сейчас, награда будет больше. Раскрытие происходит в формате бизнес-романа: этот жанр мне все больше нравится. При этом "кейсы" рассказчик использует из реальной жизни. Книга проста, легка, не переворачивает мир, но почему-то мотивирует не набрасываться на быструю награду - иногда это крючок, на который вас целенаправлено ловят.

“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up.
It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion

It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle

It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle:
When the sun comes up, you'd better be running!”
