An excellent example of a self-help book that addresses a real problem many of us have. The author bases his recommendations on his personal history as a procrastinator, his research findings and his group therapy work with procrastinators. The result is an engaging, direct, highly practical book full of great tips. Now, the real question with any how-to book is, does it work? Yes, the tips he provides WILL work, but bear two things in mind. One, it's not overnight. You have to constantly reinforce the steps and self-talk he gives you or you'll fall back into the same patterns. Two, you may have to listen to the book more than once to get a good grasp of everything. A lifelong procrastinator, I was already experiencing positive changes just a week or so after reading the book. It takes time and some struggle, but it's worth it. The narrator is good, sets the right friendly tone for the book.

This book was really helpful! It contains a lot of good advice on overcoming procrastination. It emphasises the deeper issues behind procrastination rather than focusing on just tips to overcome.

The best selfhelp book, I've ever read. The thing that differentiate it from others of its genre is it's convincing argument based on human psychology and best practices in management.

There are some good techniques of course, but many of the stated things in the book just seem impossible in reality. This is one of those ‘good in theory’ books to me personally
