A keeper

Dr. Fiore warms to the task of being a narrator. During the first half of the book he seems to be learning how to narrate, but towards the end of the book his narration picks up speed and he modulates his points well. Amazon reviews show people buying several books on procrastination and saying this is the only one that helps. Be sure to download the extra material - a pdf file and print it out.

Highly Recommend

I found this book to be inspiring and life changing. I too initially found the narration to be slightly slow and awkward but that worked itself out and/or the content was so terrific I was no longer distracted by it.

I've listened to the good doctor's book twice and have already put a lot of his advice into practice and it has made a huge difference. Things that had been on my to do list for MONTHS have already been completed and with this positive momentum I'm actually looking forward to tackling other previously daunting tasks.

Without a doubt, this is the BEST time management book I've ever purchased.

Unique insights well worth learning

In this book Dr. Fiore provides a unique insight on causes of procrastination and some surprising strategies to deal with it. Having read some 3 or 4 books over 10 years in an effort to deal with the habit (I just never quite get around to it!), I have found Dr. Fiore's ideas among the most effective yet.

Some have commented on his narration style, and yes it is a little slow. I found turning up the narration speed on my iPod the only remedy needed.

For me this book, plus 'Eat That Frog', provide everything one needs to know to change behaviour and stop procrastinating. Now it is up to me!

Very good, I think

I like the book's opening: there are several types of procrastinators, and they procrastinate for different reasons. One of those types fit me almost perfectly -- I am good at getting the big things done, but I hate all the details. Just knowing that made me feel better.

The author then explores the psychological reasons why we procrastinate. He doesn't brow beat the reader saying it's bad. Procrastinating is rewarding, in fact, but only in the short term.

Moving on to what to do about it, the author offers many excellent suggestions. Several strategies are simple and effective, for example stop talking to yourself as a victim, but instead make the choice to do something. I have started doing those things and they do help.

There are several other things as well, which take more work. And therein is my problem. I just don't have time to work out an un-schedule right now... but I'll definitely start tomorrow.

Unlearning Procrastination: Finally

Learn from this illuminating but readily understood analysis of procrastination as a complex defense that is usually misunderstood as a weakness, incompetence, academic ineptitude, etc. Fiore illucidates the manner in which proscrastination is used defensively against other unpleasant feelings and thoughts. And why sheer will power will not over come patterns of procrastination. The author goes a step further and offers ways to "unlearn" procrastination and deal effectively with the problems that gave rise to it.

really improved my life

Fiore isn't the greatest narrator available (he speaks a little slowly for me), the content is really great. I already own the book; having it in audio format is both revealing (I've learned a few new things) and useful for review. I have recommended this for family members who suffer -- as I do -- from difficulty completing tasks.

Difficult listening.

Great content, poor delivery. I wish that this author had given over the job or reading this valuable book to somebody who could make the experience of listening to it less fatiguing. Consider buying the print version - I finally had to do that.

Best procrastination book I have ever read

I picked up this audio book after hearing "The Now Habit" recommended on several productivity blogs whose authors I respect. This is the best book on productivity I have ever read. Fiore describes the psychological root causes for procrastination, and provides several very sensible and doable strategies for attacking the causes.

Some reviewers have complained about the quality of the narration. Personally I think the criticisms are exaggerated. The book is narrated by the author, Neil Fiore, and he has a nice reading voice. Yes, at the beginning of the book his reading is a slow and a bit tentative, and this was mildly distracting. However, by about 1/5 into it, Fiore hits his stride and after that it was a pleasure to listen to.

Fantastic. I will definately also be picking up the printed book.

Life-Changing

This book is a marvelous treatment of the seemingly intractable habit of procrastination. Fiore does more than simply address the symptoms. Instead, he explores some of the more common reasons why people procrastinate, and manages to do so without boring the listener with too much psycho-babble or victimhood mentality.

Some interesting content.

Not terrible, but lacking in significant content and a fairly average performance. Worth a listen but don't expect too much.

"unschedule"? umdenken!

Wer wirklich prokrastiniert - also Dinge aufschiebt -, dem hilft "schreib dir eine Liste" nicht. Der muss tiefer graben: Warum mache ich das? Was habe ich heimlich davon? Wie gehe ich damit um? Fiore schreibt keinen "Ratgeber" im schlechten Sinn, sondern lässt einen entdecken, wie und warum man aufschiebt und wie man deswegen wirklich Änderungen erzielen kann. Von ihm selbst gelesen - man merkt, dass er kein professioneller Sprecher ist, aber ich konnte mich daran gewöhnen.

Good advise that works

I am not a classic procrastinator. Still, I experience a lack of motivation to do certain tasks (as, I guess, we all do). The book was interesting and enjoyable and I decided to put it to a test. One of the recommendations Neil gives is to "just start and spend a quality 30 minutes focused on the task". I had to prepare my early taxes and I applied this method. I just started! 30 minutes into the game (I set an alarm) I had accomplished so much - it felt great!
Very recommendable! Thanks, Neil!
