a good book about procrastination without fluff and hype (as oppose as a lot of American books)

This is not a book written for entertainment, but to solve insidious problems that hinders your potential,like procrastination. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Useful 14 April 2011
By The Emperor TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A gem of a book, Short, sharp and to the point. It really helped me to understand the reasons why I was procrastinating and how to procrastinate much less.

This book uses the basic principles of Rational Emotive Behaviour therapy, which was developed by Albert Ellis and is closely related to CBT. There is very little fluff in this book but it does contain many extremely helpful techniques and other practical advice.

It identifies common reasons why people procrastinate and also how to overcome these excuses and rationalisations. There are also some helpful time management suggestions.

It does require a little bit of work from the reader but everything is clearly explained and is fairly easy to do.

Dr Dryden gives good advice on overcoming procrastination. He understands the mix of anxieties behind it and is helpful without being condescending. He makes it clear that its your problem to solve but this is done with sympathy and worthwhile suggestions. A short but down-to-earth book without any pyscho-babble.
