There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The main take-off from the book is very simple not to say simplistic:
Recognize when you procrastinate and just get started on the task you are avoiding.
I really expected more to be honest, something more insightful, motivational. I hoped that after reading the book I would aquire some motivation
or learn minimally sophisticated techniques to overcome the problem, but I felt like the book only told me basic straightforward stuff that is self-evident and obvious. I feel disappointed and will have to look elsewhere. The book lacks in this regard as well as it doenst have any notes or bibliography.
Okay, I should stop procrastinating and get back to work now.

The advice in this book reminded me of Extreme Programming and test-driven development—I can't think of higher praise.
