Practical remedy to this pervasive ill

Don't put off listening to this great book until tomorrow. Seriously this is a practical, step by step approach to becoming more action orientated, focusses the mind on the order and importance of tasks. Using knowledge of human psychology the author believes we can trick, cajole and manipulate ourselves into productivity just as easily as we can fall into passivity and procrastination. We just need to recognise the signs of weakness and act on them. Worth a listen on the way to work.

Not What I Expected

This book spoke more about the situations and problems brought on by procrastination. This is something that a procrastinator already knows. The book needs to discuss more of the direct ways or step-by-step means to help you overcome procrastination.The title suggests that it is a "Handbook". It is anything but a handbook. The reader/author has a very monotone voice that almost puts you to sleep. Nothing enthusiastic about this book.In my opinion don't buy this book.
