Wait I will write this Review Later.

A great Audio Book to get you off your behind and start controlling your life.With a good performance by the Narrator it is a
quick and easy read.


You can keep listening to the Book provided you do not procrastinate and you may very well start doing the very things you keep making excuses for not doing.Did that sound right ?



Anyway stop procrastinating download this Book or I will send a first class Kvetch to your home.

OMG THIS BOOK IS ME! GREAT STUFF!

Is this a book about procrastination, or about ME? Well, I guess it's about a lot of us... but it's literally me to a T. It was surprising and a bit frightening how much I procrastinate, and why. I found it very well written and organized, and liked the narration as well. I learned a lot about why I do the things I do, and I will definitely used that knowledge to really work on not procrastinating. Although, I seriously procrastinated on writing this review, bad bad bad!
GREAT BOOK, REALLY ENJOYED IT AND FOUND IT USEFUL.

Wish this was standard issue at the job

This little gem is good for the whole family. There are chapters for students and chapters for the workplace. Additionally, there are sections on the health impacts of procrastination, which I haven't heard addressed before.

The narrator has a pleasant, conversational tone that keeps the information interesting. Thanks to her, I zipped through this in two days of travel and never felt my attention was wavering.

The length is perfect and there's a minimum of repetition. No filler. Defines procrastination, separates out into types, then gives suggestions how to overcome it. The bit on perfectionism was right on point for this listener. I'd never considered the impacts on health until I listened to this.

For the better.

Not only has this book exposed me to new concepts, but it has inspired me to change. What more magnificent compliment can I give a book, than it has substantially changed me? For the better.

Some good content BUT

It’s been recorded in someone’s shed on a tape deck - just awful cheap sound quality.
Extremely unprofessional - I’m amazed I had to pay for this. Sounds like a school kid reading from a school paper & being bored as hell while doing it.
There is some quite good content but the droning voice & awful quality of the recording makes this a chore to listen to.
I can not understand how this book has any good ratings to be fair.

Worth the purchase.

I’m starting a new job soon and have been a serial procrastinator for YEARS, so I want to start my new position with good habits.

Was somewhat dubious about buying this book, because I wasn’t confident that I’d learn much which I’ll put into use. I’m actually really glad I did purchase it, because I’ve learned about different types of procrastination, why we do it, the consequences and what to do to combat these habits. The book is very short and this made it easy to concentrate and focus.

I’ve marked the performance down but NOT because of the narrator (whose voice and performance I enjoyed), but because the recording quality was a little poor.

Would recommend to anyone else in my position and I’ll be listening again if and when I need a reminder!

Could've been more personal

The book had everything..reasons why we procrastinate. Strategies to overcome, different types of procrastinators etc..the author must've included stories of people who suffered from the habit and how they overcame. It should've includes her own story of how she overcame the habit..there wasn't much to relate or associate with. Hope this goes as a positive feedback to the writer.

GREAT BOOK :)

This book is just as great, full of tips on how to avoid procrastination habits we may find ourselves encountering in our daily lives. Some tips are not new but rereading something may eventually motivate us to take action.
