John Perry’s insights and laugh-out-loud humor bring to mind Thurber, Wodehouse, and Harry Frankfort’s On Bullshit. This charming and accessible audio educates, entertains, and illuminates a universal subject. Procrastinators will be relieved to learn that actually you can accomplish quite a lot while procrastinating. In fact, the book itself is the result of Perry avoiding grading papers, refereeing academic proposals, and reviewing dissertation drafts. It also has a practical side, offering up advice that listeners can put to use. Who knew that placing “Learn Chinese” at the top of your to-do list would inspire you to get the less monumental tasks below it done? Witty, wise, and beautifully written, The Art of Procrastination will make the perfect gift for the untold number of lollygaggers out there.

    " Funny but light... very light "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Analisa | 2/15/2014

    " Procrastinators would probably love this book. He justifies and brings out the good points of procrastinators (yes, somewhat sarcastically). Non-procrastinators might not appreciate it so much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Andi | 2/3/2014

    " I got this book as an ebook, a preview from NetGalley. Very funny look at some of the benefits of procrastination and how to psych yourself out and actually get a lot done while not beating yourself up about what you don't get around to; and how to manage to get the important stuff done. Encouraging, quick read - great little book! "

    " A wonderful take on the well known epidemic of procrastination. The book is light-hearted and easy to read until you realize the seriousness and reasoning behind the suggestions. While it doesn't promise that it will make you kick the habit it does set your moral compass in the right place to feel less guilty and work around the habit to eventually be more effective. "
