I've read several books on procrastination and this is my favorite. It is short - about 170 pages. That's a good thing. Shorter is better for procrastinators, busy people and slow readers. It is very user-friendly and to-the-point. You can quickly diagnose the reasons you are procrastinating in chapter 1 with a short quiz. From there you can get busy addressing those reasons with straightforward strategies. The vignettes are a little cheesy, but I assume realistic. That aside, this is an excellent self-help book. I would recommend it to anyone interested in understanding their procrastination and becoming more productive.

After reading just the first few pages, I managed to make some immediate life changes that have definitely paid off. I started taking an on-line class that I'd been putting off and am helping organizing a wedding with way less distress than I ever thought possible. As Dr. Ramirez-Basco notes though, changing procrastination habits is about the long haul, so I still periodically browse through personally relevant chapters to get reinspired. Since having had the book for two months now, I have bought two more copies for family members. This would be a great gift for ones self, and then when others start to notice the difference in your life, get them a copy too!
