Reviews

' his contention that 'Procrastination is irrational!' and then that it's a growing problem amongst today's leaders has rarely been so powerfully put [and] whether the problem is new or not, the strength of this book is in its delving deep into its psychological causes, based on recent scientific insights, to explain the why of procrastination.' - Developing Leaders
