The book helps the reader to understand the source of their anxiety, and provides steps for overcoming it. Highly recommended.
But, just because they have a license or a PhD, I'm not saying that you should buy their book. On the contrary, most of the ones written by psychiatrists and PhD's don't really provide true solutions to the problem. They say idiotic things like "just do it". Or, if you don't take that first step, you're not really committed in solving your procrastination problem. They're only a little bit better than the motivational speakers.
This book is the first book I've found (and I've read about 10 of these) that provides some meaningful solutions. However, I should give this book 4 stars because it doesn't explore these solutions deeply enough. It's very cursory. But, I had to give it 5 stars because the books out there are such garbage, that this one stands out.
