Publisher's Summary

Based on their workshops and counseling experience, psychologists Jane B. Burka and Lenora M. Yuen offer a probing, sensitive, and at times humorous look at a problem that affects everyone: students and scientists, secretaries and executives, homemakers and salespeople. Procrastination identifies the reasons we put off tasks - fears of failure, success, control, separation, and attachment - and their roots in our childhood and adult experiences.
The authors offer a practical, tested program to overcome procrastination by achieving set goals, managing time, enlisting support, and handling stress. Burka and Yuen even provide tips on living and working with the procrastinators you may know.
Wise, effective, and easy to use, this new edition shows why for 25 years Procrastination has been an immediate must-have for anyone who puts things off until tomorrow.

Not as an audio book.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Different reader.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The content is helpful.

Any additional comments?

As a kindle book, fine. As an audio book, not so much. I bought the audio version so I could listen while riding the subway. The narrator's voice is grating. (Really? You couldn't get anyone better?) Also, you soon realize how often the word procrastinator is used in this book...and that's grating, too. "Be firm with the procrastinator." "If the procrastinator delays on something..." "Procrastinator. The procrastinator! I realize it's a book about procrastination, but... It's like listening to the song Roxanne. If I took a drink every time she said procrastinator.... And the way she says it and the way it's used... procrastinator starts sounding evil, nasty person. Procrastinator! I had to shut it off.
