The science of self control is new to me and I found this to be a great starting point. A guidebook would be a great addition, especially so we can reference the many studies the professor brings up

This course is far better than the low ratings insinuate. The only problem is that it is never mentioned that self control is 60% heritable thus there are limits what you can personally do to have better self control. But other than that despite its short length it gives a pretty good overview what is self control, what depletes it and what you can do to replenish and train it. Even if you think that the practical recommendations are off (which many people here seem to do) just knowing about these facts can make a difference. It are only 6 lectures, so there's little you can lose. I highly recommend this course.
