Not useful. the book meanders through a series of long, detailed explanations about why people procrastinate, and why some people procrastinate to a point that is damaging, then falters. Given that most of the readers who actually finish the book are probably people who are trying to find strategies for coping with procrastinaters, it is a shame that the weakest section in the book is the one on dealing with procrastinationin others. The authors give a direct, easily understandable list of "don't's" then follow up with some incredibly vague, unhelpful advice on "negotiating." Really, this one is not worth reading. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0738211702, Paperback)

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.
