Horrible Narrator

Out of all the books I have downloaded I can't seem to listen to this one since the narrator is so awful. I've actually been forcing myself to listen since some of the material is actually quite useful. The narrator is so monotone I find myself thinking of suicide - just a little humor

Buy the book instead.

Some good ideas for overcoming procrastination

I thought the NOW Habit had some good ideas but was just OK as a book. It was a little hard to follow primarily because of the narration. To me it was one of those books that you know has some good ideas but you don't remember many of them after you finish the book. This book might actually lend itself better to a print format.

Inconsistent Narrator

Although he does get way better about two hours in, there are large portions where narrator is channeling his inner William Shatner.

Loved this book!

Great information on how to get moving on your responsibilities. I have been using this method for a few days now and both my husband and me love how it makes our day go great compared to stressful! Narrator has a great voice to listen too and definitely worth listening to again!

Just ok.

Content ok, but a bit repetitive and boring narrator.
It was hard to reach the end.

The readers cadence drove me insane

Maybe the book works, maybe it doesn't. I found myself procrastinating just because I hated the narrators performance. It took me several weeks to finish this book, because I never looked forward to listening to it
