  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 2/1/2014

    " I found the first half of this quite interesting, and it had some good bits about recognizing which types of things cause you to procrastinate and why. I only skimmed the second half, it was more about dealing with procrastitors in various situations. "

It was an impulse purchase but reviews are positive and this book will be my one (and quite likely only) self-help book. I have hopes that I can apply lessons learned in my teaching and course planning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gerdav | 9/30/2013

    " The second 'self help' book..... and I enjoyed this one too. I got a wee bit stuck at chapter 7 but other than that found it readable and helpful. I stuggle to give a self help book more than 3 stars, but its definately worth the 'i liked it'. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeroen | 4/21/2013

    " I always have trouble with the self-help books that have this programmed instruction and exercise regime that you are supposed to follow. This book is no exception, but its description of the roots of procrastination and the tools to overcome them are very worthwhile in their own right. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kama | 6/29/2012

    " Not bad. I'll probably use some of the suggestions but I found the examples too specific and the stuff about meditation/relaxation exercises a bit off-topic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Briostheman | 6/26/2012

    " This is a strange one. It is an attempt to help people overcome procrastination. The only problem is that the book is a real slow read. The phrasing is somewhat like a textbook which will probably make a lot of procrastinators quit this one. Good idea, execution is a little off. "

    " I'll review it later. Does that tell you anything? "

    " Some seminarians I visited were all reading this book and since procrastination has always been one of my problems I read it too. The main point seems, in retrospect, to allow oneself to have some fun as a reward for getting the scutwork done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 9/29/2011

    " There should be a status for "re-reading," or "I'm going to read every day for the rest of my life like a devotional." "

    " Absolutely beautiful take-aways in this one. I have 8 pages of (small type) notes on things I either didn't know of didn't have a decent grasp on. His language is probably a bit too PhD for people's likings, but this is a gem on getting time, confidence, fears, and procrastination in order. "
