    "It's Just a Character Flaw"

    This book was a complete waste of money. Although this man is supposed to be an authority on procrastination, every chapter is just a different way to say that there is no real cause for procrastination other than that you are lazy. His solution - stop making excuses and get over it.

    Even the colleague who wrote the foreword appears not to have been completely impressed by this book.

    Bottom line - do not get this book.

    "Lazy author, if not himself a procrastinator"
    What would have made Still Procrastinating better?

    Ditch the tired cliches. Ditch the empty academic citations. This book is not helpful.
    It reads like it was written in about as much time as it takes to read it.

    The book is just a series of pop-advice...
    example: "Worry will not lead to happiness" Really? Thanks for the wisdom!

    ...and recitations from academic literature
    "research shows that procrastinators do not trust other procrastinators." Really?

    Do these two statements help with your motivation? Then this book is for you.

    The problem is that this is a tired subject and the author seems to be an expert (don't believe me? Just ask him!), but is too lazy to edit the book down to what is actually useful (new & rare, if not unique).

    What is in this book that you Mother hasn't told you? Very, very little.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Joseph Ferrari again?

    No!

    "Very useful"

    A bit of the how-to, and a bit more of the why. Solid material; wide coverage. I give it 4 stars because the areas I found most interesting are the author spent the least amount of time on. But I will be listening to this one again.
