Don't wait, don't waste your money DUDE

Basic rehash of common sense things just bundled up and touched on briefly. Narration is like a college party guy. I found it annoying to listen to and disappointing to have spent money on it.

Nothing special

Haven't even finished last 30% of the book. The examples of things you want to be motivated for like "make the report" and "cleaning up garage" are far from real life. Material is just a compilation of countless blog posts on the Internet, and not even good one.

Don't do it.

one of the worst books I have read on the subject. I wish you would have procrastinated writing this book a little bit longer. This book is nothing more then a loosely thrown together grouping of other people's ideas without any improvement in application or concept. Literally just repackaged a bunch of other people's ideas in a terrible book, bringing down the intellectual value significantly.

Great tips!

As a chronic procrastinator, I nearly put it down to listen tomorrow 😀!
I love its brevity and its succinctness of the message. Packs huge punch in less than 2 hours. Go get it already!

EXCELLENT audio book!!!

This audio program is packed with great information that will help you overcome procrastination. Within an hour or so you will have at your disposal some very practical information. I was particularly impressed by the fact that he did a wonderful job without having to produce a six hour long audio program. Buy this book, hear it a few times, and change your life.

Horrible. Load of nonsense.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

A child.

Would you ever listen to anything by Akash Karia again?

NO.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Matt Stone?

An adult.

Any additional comments?

Awful. Another waste of money. I find it amazing that things like this actually get put on sale. It reads like the author just googled procrastination and wrote down the first few results. Utter waste of money.

These techniques are working for me!

I listen to many different audiobooks on the topic of beating procrastination and more effectively managing time. This is the first one that is actually working for me! The text is very usable in the techniques can be employed effectively right away. It is also quite funny and entertaining
