Description

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 an audio book.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Different reader.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The content is helpful.

Any additional comments?

As a kindle book, fine. As an audio book, not so much. I bought the audio version so I could listen while riding the subway. The narrator's voice is grating. (Really? You couldn't get anyone better?) Also, you soon realize how often the word procrastinator is used in this book...and that's grating, too. "Be firm with the procrastinator." "If the procrastinator delays on something..." "Procrastinator. The procrastinator! I realize it's a book about procrastination, but... It's like listening to the song Roxanne. If I took a drink every time she said procrastinator.... And the way she says it and the way it's used... procrastinator starts sounding like...an evil, nasty person. Procrastinator! I had to shut it off.

Waste of my money, pretty annoyed!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Ugh i don't know, but this was not for me.

What was most disappointing about Jane B. Burka and Lenora M. Yuen ’s story?

Very cliched. All stuff i had heard before many many times, but made longer...which made it more boring!

Any additional comments?

How ironic that a book about trying to cure procrastination - made me procrastinate! Trying to get thru this book was a huge chore but as i had spent so much on it i was determined to try. It was awful. I picked up a few small things but mostly this was nonsense and boring nonsense at that.

Great!

This was my first experience with an audio book. The sound was clear and the narration was understandable and enjoyable. The app is super convenient and easy to use. I'd like to listen to more books!

Powerful book that is timeless and foundational!

I found this book to be excellent in its' presentation and theory from both authors who have their doctorates and are clearly not only researchers in this topic but they are also real life practitioners in this very challenging topic of procrastination!

Enlightening

Learned quite a bit about myself. It's worth a listen if you want to learn why you put things off. A bit long, however.

Just like a therapy

What did you like best about this story?

This is a very good book, helped me a lot and I urged to write this review. Better listening than reading, feels just like a real therapy session!

Extremely helpful and informative

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. This book took procrastination and broke it down to all the reasons why someone does it, how the brain has been affected, and how patterns have been set. It cross references things such as ADD and ED and how we were raised with Cognitive thinking and awareness. This book breaks things down in a logical format that is understandible and helps you to not condemn either yourself or your loved one who is a procrastinator.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I'm currently listening to "Everyone's a Theologian: An Introduction to Theology" by R.C. Sproul.

Have you listened to any of Sandra Burr’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, this was the first book by her. She pronounces a few words a little differently than I would, but otherwise it was good.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Procrastination?

Journalling for awareness as well as talking to the procrastinator in my life very differently.

Any additional comments?

I sure wish I could get my procrastinator to listen this book.

H

It met all of my expectations and beyond. I now understand what lies beneath my procrastination, and I can move forward feeling better about myself while I implement some of the techniques to improve upon my efforts to reduce procrastination in my behaviour. Thank you so much for all of your dedication and serious efforts writing this book.

Good book but a terrible audiobook.

It took me more than three months to finish this audiobook. The content is OK but the voice is hard to listening to. You always feel as if the authors look down at you. It feels like as if you were to be pitied.
There are some good concepts in this book. But all in all very vague and general. Can't really remember much from it.
I won't listen to it again.
