5.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye to Procrastination 23 Sep 2010
By Josi
Format:Paperback
This short book is by far the BEST book on procrastination I've ever read.
1) Short chapters (that even chronic procrastinators can finish)
2) Lots of useful tools that we can imply right away ('change is about doing, not just reading')
3) The book is written in a simple, unpretentious way, like a friend is talking with you about your problem and offer his help.
4) Great price for such a book!

Thank you Mr. Pychyl for writing this wonderful guide to help me solve my procrastination puzzle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely useful and great value for money 14 Feb 2011
By The Emperor TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not even chronic procrastinators have any excuse for not reading this very short work on procrastination. This is an extremely useful book and as you read it you can start putting its recommendations onto practice. The author manages to say in a hundred words what many books take a thousand to say. I greatly appreciated its brevity and also the low price on Kindle.

The author is an academic and much of what he says is backed up by evidence but it is also an easy read. There are chapters explaining what procrastination is, how to recognise when you are about to procrastinate and how to avoid it.

His ideas on implementation intentions were particularly interesting as I had not really come across this idea before. Basically we can make pre-decisions and tell ourselves "IF I am about to engage in procrastination behaviour THEN I will ...."
I found this to be very helpful as I have often avoided procrastinating for awhile and then sunk back into old habits.
