What just happened!?

The book is only 1.5 hours in length and (I'm being generous) perhaps 15-20 minutes were spent on the subject of procrastination. The majority of the book was spent talking about substance abuse, addiction, and dependency. It would not have been SO bad if he had related this back to procrastination being an "addiction", even in general, but he literally dropped the subject of procrastination almost completely to talk about physical and chemical addiction and substance abuse.
And did he actually just walk me through the entire 12 step program without mentioning the topic of procrastination even once!?
Yes... Yes he did! And for about 45 minutes.
He mentions a couple of clichéd implementation techniques near the end, and then abruptly the book is over!
If you are looking for a book on how to conquer procrastination... Seriously, take a pass. If you are looking for a book to learn how to overcome addiction and chemical dependency, STILL... take a pass. This book doesn't do a good job at either.

Useful and documented.

I chose the book in order to address my own issue with repeated delays. Found it practical and easy to follow. Not excessively theoretical. With good ideas to implement. For all those out there who linger on Facebook instead of writing what you should. You know who you are...

Don't put off reading this. Don't procrastinate. This book was more helpful to me who has that tendency than any other advice I've received. Made it all simple. For those who put off something thinking they will do it tomorrow, probably won't do it tomorrow either. So order the book today!

A must read...

The author provides rational explanations for procrastination and does not turn it into a huge psychological problem that cannot be overcome. The book is well organised, fairly concise and holds your attention. The steps outlined are good, effective, with examples. The key is action, and the book will get you moving to do it.

The book cuts straight to the chase. My only recommendation is to discuss more in depth how the Big Five are correlated with procrastination. Thanks!

Great analysis and strategies

Will make this short since I have to just get started on some work that I have been procrastinating on. Great insights and resources to overcome this debilitating condition. I would give six stars if I could. Perfect!
