    "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.

    "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!

    "Practical"

    The book is very practical and I enjoyed the stories used to drive home his points. I now have multiple methods to deal with my life long struggle with procrastination and I have started using some of the tips from the book and it's working.

    Story
    "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.

    "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.

    "Good for even a non-procrastinator"
    Any additional comments?

    I am a highly productive, non-procrastinator who was doing research for some coaching clients who struggle with procrastination. Wow! This was a GREAT book! I learned and implemented ideas that have further streamlined my productivity and, as a result of Akash's research and excellent writing skills, also better understand the challenges and mindsets of my procrastinating friends. Bravo! Highly recommend!
