Great advice!

The Procrastination Cure really nails it! How does Damon know that I sneak off to Facebook or Words with Friends to avoid doing what I need to do? His concrete 21 steps are a big help.

Don’t buy

Not worth it.
Read a lot of self-help books, this is nothing but common sense and basic knowledge, impossibly boring to listen too.
Read or listen to “Rewire” by Richard O’Connor instead, that book I’m listening for 5th time over now.

Full of practical actions to stop procrastinating.

I loved it - particularly the breakdown of different types and reasons for procrastination and how to match up the right cure.

I hate being a procrastinator

The author knows my habit and has given real-life tools to fix this. My procrastination is a lifelong bad habit that I want to eradicate from my life. I feel this book will help me make the necessary changes.

Very informative and to the point.

I like the way the author related his past stories and experiences to illustrate some material in the textbook.

Somewhat helpful

The writer spends the first 6 or so chapters talking about "in this book, you'll find/learn..." it over explains things unnecessarily. it's a short book but has some helpful tips. I recommend to read and take notes as you go.
not super motivating.

If you don’t put it off, I can see the help that is here.

I did like listening to the book and can see the benefits I am an extreme procrastinator and will be listening many more times, because, I want the results of the cure, so will be putting in the work. Would recommend to anyone who procrastinate.

No value in this book or take away whatsoever

This book provides nothing else that a 15 minute article or a 10 minute YouTube video wouldn’t.

First, it lack content so much that it’s filled with tons menial examples, experiences and references to certain situations.

Second, any person who fells the need to fix procrastination knows for sure all the “tactics” the author pretends to slips as his.

Third, the core ideas would literally take 10 minutes to be explain in a clear and sufficient manner. Yet this book takes more than 3 hours at normal speed.

The writing is so plain and dull that is as boring to read as the phone guide.

After listening completely with the hope of some decent or applicable advice I’m so pissed that I regret the very first moment I downloaded it.

Fantastic, well structured

I absolutely loved this book. As a chronic procrastinator myself I found it very insightful. it is researched well and split into useful sections: reasons we procrastinate and then tactics to overcome procrastination. I also liked the fact that the chapters were smaller and easier to take on the concepts from each. I would highly recommend this book and will be searching for other books from this author.
