Don’t buy

Not worth it.
Read a lot of self-help books, this is nothing but common sense and basic knowledge, impossibly boring to listen too.
Read or listen to “Rewire” by Richard O’Connor instead, that book I’m listening for 5th time over now.

Great advice!

The Procrastination Cure really nails it! How does Damon know that I sneak off to Facebook or Words with Friends to avoid doing what I need to do? His concrete 21 steps are a big help.

Very informative and to the point.

I like the way the author related his past stories and experiences to illustrate some material in the textbook.

Ment to do this yesterday

The 21 tactics are not new - What is new are the ways he shares how he implemented them. In our book club we spend 9 days reviewing this and it was powerful to have the level if dialogue about how we are each hindered by our own procrastination. Thanks for the book, thanks for the audio and thanks for the simple solutions. It's working!

No value in this book or take away whatsoever

This book provides nothing else that a 15 minute article or a 10 minute YouTube video wouldn’t.

First, it lack content so much that it’s filled with tons menial examples, experiences and references to certain situations.

Second, any person who fells the need to fix procrastination knows for sure all the “tactics” the author pretends to slips as his.

Third, the core ideas would literally take 10 minutes to be explain in a clear and sufficient manner. Yet this book takes more than 3 hours at normal speed.

The writing is so plain and dull that is as boring to read as the phone guide.

After listening completely with the hope of some decent or applicable advice I’m so pissed that I regret the very first moment I downloaded it.

Fantastic, well structured

I absolutely loved this book. As a chronic procrastinator myself I found it very insightful. it is researched well and split into useful sections: reasons we procrastinate and then tactics to overcome procrastination. I also liked the fact that the chapters were smaller and easier to take on the concepts from each. I would highly recommend this book and will be searching for other books from this author.
