in depth analysis of what powers us to procrastinate. take your time and hear him out as the ideas may seem at odds with what you understand about yourself. Like others, I found his narration a bit slow. But given the material, it could be a natural consequence. would recommend this book.
I was inspired by this book and have put some of the suggestions in place. It helped me understand myself and others who also procrastinate.
The narrating is not the best but can be forgiven since it's the author himself. I increased the speed of listening which helped.

7 habits because they are both so well researched, excellently presented and infinitely useful
I would recommend that any friend purchase the paper book rather than the audio version. The information in here is well presented and I like a lot of Dr. Fiore's insights, but the production itself needs improvement. While articulate, Dr. Fiore's pace of speech is extremely slow and awkward. I'm listening to it at 1.5x speed and finding it much more usable.
Dr. Fiore should have hired a professional to read the book. I can certainly understand his desire to keep the product his own, but it makes engagement with the material more difficult. That is a shame because I think there are a lot of valuable lessons.
It has made me more motivated. I chose to make an un-schedule immediately after reading about it and have found a lot of joy in doing so.
The content of the book is top drawer but the narration makes it impossible to listen to. I ended up having to get the read version and I really enjoyed it.
Bottom line: not recommended as an audio book
I listen to a lot of everything. I really enjoy fiction, but also business books, self-improvement and lectures.
I would rate this a 5 except that I had to speed up the listening speed so that I can listen to it otherwise the narrator talks too slow. the information provided however is excellent
Many useful strategies for overcoming the anxiety that's often the cause of procrastination. The author/narrator was good, but read a little too slowly for my personal preference. Presentation and information was a bit dry.
For easy to apply tips, this book has it. I've used what I learned in this book and it has been very successful.
While it was not the best narration it was still easy to listen (I just had to speed it up a little :)
Definitely worth my time for what it's saved me going forward.
the principles in the book are awesome! I've only stayed to apply a few and I've already seen a huge difference. Apparently there is a pdf that goes with the program. wish I had access to that.
2x speed felt like normal speed and normal speed seemed like a joke.
Author spends time mentioning the method of other self-help books being inadequate and how this book is different. It's largely the same as other books as far as content.
There are a few gems spread throughout the book that are worth hearing. Particularly some thought exercises.
There's also a guided meditation portion that I thought was both kind of cool and also kind of ridiculous. Meditation's cool. Guided relaxation's not for me, but could be good for others. So worth mentioning there's some in here.
