Great book but horrible narrator!

The purpose for my purchase was to identify the cause and stop my chronic procrastination. The book does a wonderful job of identifying ways to overcome excessive procrastination. However the monotone voice of the narrator makes the book a chore to continue listening. The book itself is a must read.

Good book

Hope I get to using some of the techniques. my only issue was that it seems like some of the success stories were filler. I mean I stopped comparing myself to Jayz when I was a teenager. it possible that I've read so many books about self help now that I've dissected the books and how they are written and not applied enough of the tools inside. My brand of procrastination maybe. very well thought out and the concepts and I'deas were fully fleshed out.

Poorly written but contains some useful tips.

This book is poorly written and needs to be proofread and redone if it is to be worth revisiting. Audio books are very useful as they can be revisited easily, if they are worthy of being listened to again. Therein lies their usefulness. I often listen to a well-written book up to three times. This is one I will not revisit.

Smart guide.

It’s very appealing for a self-development junkie like me. While the book has introduced fresh ideas, I heard some procedures which I used before. It felt good to know the author and I have the same point of view. It’s a book I’ll never get tired of.

My type of self-help procrastination book.

I think this book helped in many ways. Thanks for the enlightening piece of advice. I’m sure I’m not the only one it has assisted. This book is pretty clear, yet fun and engaging at times.

Everything makes sense.

I used to be in Jim’s shoes -always delaying things. The guide questions have been so useful. I learned how to stop and take time to accept the small steps along the way to a big aim, rather of worrying about the end result. This will better actually get to the end product/state.
