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 advertised

The subtitle of the book 'what to do about procrastination' suggests that it will help combat procrastination - well it doesn't in my view. To start with the narrator has a very boring monotonous voice and then spends the first 2/3 of the book explaining the theories around the subject that just goes on and on and on ..... Without any real insight or interest. The section where I hoped to gain some useful tips into dealing with procrastination did not fare any better. It goes off in tangents - eg there is the best part of an hour discussing the loneliness of first generation immigrants in the US and how this affects procrastination - not a solution for me. Kept on listening in the hope of some wisdom but sorry, just completely wasted my time. Would have wasted less time procrastinating - how ironic.

Good info - Terrible Narrator

Would you try another book written by Jane B. Burka and Lenora M. Yuen or narrated by Sandra Burr?

I've had to google the narrator to make sure she is a real person. She sounds like an automated answer machine. Even though the internet tells me Ms Burr is a human being, I still have doubts. I would never get anything narrated by her again. It's very distracting.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jane B. Burka and Lenora M. Yuen again?

Yes. The information is in depth and helpful.

What three words best describe Sandra Burr’s voice?

Artificial. Insincere. Synthetic.

If this book were a film would you go see it?
