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.

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.

Nothing special

Haven't even finished last 30% of the book. The examples of things you want to be motivated for like "make the report" and "cleaning up garage" are far from real life. Material is just a compilation of countless blog posts on the Internet, and not even good one.

Don't do it.

one of the worst books I have read on the subject. I wish you would have procrastinated writing this book a little bit longer. This book is nothing more then a loosely thrown together grouping of other people's ideas without any improvement in application or concept. Literally just repackaged a bunch of other people's ideas in a terrible book, bringing down the intellectual value significantly.

My go-to book to keep me motivated when I need to get things done

One of my favorite anti-procrastination books all-around (and I’ve tried and downloaded several procrastination/motivational books in the past). It’s a great message, offering several different techniques to try whether you need to just get moving and get started or if you have a big project looming that you need to start making progress on. Really, a narrator’s voice can make or break a good audiobook and this one is just right for the content.

No inspiration found here!

Would you try another book from Akash Karia and/or Matt Stone?

No.

What could Akash Karia have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

They could have been more real. Very superficial and obvious.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I never read the book. Probably won't now.

Any additional comments?

Every body has a different life than his and circumstances that inhibit one person could affect another. he talks about himself and obviously doesn;t have any real issues. this book is a waste of time I wouldn't recommend it to anyone!

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.
