Review

"The book is great" - The Guardian

"The Procrastination Equation is crammed with surprising insights about procrastination and human nature – as well asconcrete, helpful solutions for fighting procrastination." -
Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project 

"The Procrastination Equation will teach you how to bust the excuses that are preventing you from doing your best work and living your best life. So don’t put it off any longer. Read this book. Today." - Daniel Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

"Procrastination is the saffron spice of human behavior, where even small amounts of this tendency can shatter the best of intentions. In this illuminating book Piers Steel shows us the secrets of procrastination, how it affects us and how we will, one day, be able to prevail." -  Dan Ariely, author of The Upside of Irrationality and Predictably Irrational 

"In his absorbing first book Steel looks closely at the oft-misunderstood habit of procrastination. His engaging guide will appeal to a wide audience of past, present, and future procrastinators and researchers trying to get a handle on the science of putting things off." - Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover

Are you always late or behind with something?

Is your desk covered with stuff you just haven’t got round to dealing with?

Are there dozens of untackled jobs around your home?

Then you’re not alone. Across the world, millions of us are engaged in a never-ending battle to get stuff done. It’s a battle that frustrates us, makes us unhappy, costs us financially and takes its toll on our health. What’s more, it’s likely to limit our career potential.

So why do intelligent, able people put things off, even when we know we’ll be worse off for doing so? And, more importantly, how do we change?

In this groundbreaking book, the world’s leading expert on procrastination, Dr Piers Steel, reveals the truth about why we don’t do what we don’t do – and shows us what we can do about it.

Using a powerful mix of psychology, science, self-help, and a decade of his own research, Dr Steel shows us what effect procrastination has on our lives, and offers real hope to sufferers everywhere.

New to this revised edition, Dr Steel shows exactly how to apply the techniques in common problem areas, resulting in a step-by-step procrastination busting guide for work, money matters and losing weight.

“Procrastination is the saffron spice of human behaviour, where even small amounts of this tendency can shatter the best of intentions. In this illuminating book Piers Steel shows us the secrets of procrastination, how it affects us and how we will, one day, be able to prevail.”  Dan Ariely, author of New York Times bestseller Predictably Irrational
