    "FANTASTIC! Simple and to the point"
    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book because it was so short which means it got to the point very quickly. I haven't got the time (get it?!?!?) to listen to a 15 hour audiobook on this - i wanted something snappy, original and to the point and it is exactly what I got, for a very reasonable price. I am very happy with my purchase.

    Any additional comments?

    Very useful book, got to the point very quickly. It's like he was speaking directly to me! I have read a TON of books about my procrastination but this one was different because it gave me some REAL LIFE TIPS on how I can manage my life. It was like it was from MYYY point of view, not just some therapist telling me what to do and barking orders at me.
    The narrator for this has a nice voice too. I like it when they have the smooth voices.

    "This is very informative and efficient book"
    Any additional comments?

    The best trait most procrastinators have is high optimism. They are optimistic about their ability to delay a certain task and complete it later in a shorter amount of time. Their high hopes often keep them in this cycle of future procrastination. Procrastinators also have the ability to prioritize. They believe certain things are more urgent and demanding of their time, so they tend to give action to those things instead. In this new book you will be surprised to learn you can "eat your cake and have it too." It is possible to balance the negatives against the positives and still come out on top!

    Any additional comments?

    Such a great book! I'd been a chronic procrastinator in so many aspects of my life and this book has helped remedy so many of them. Graham Bianco delves deeply into all corners of people's procrastination and with each instance he identifies the causes and puts across really comprehensive solutions and methods to overcoming your problems. The book flows extremely well and is also laid out in nice digestible parts so while you can listen to it start to finish, you can also jump in and out of different parts on quick listens. Great for the car journey to work. 5 out of 5!

    "A good listen that helped me achieve more"
    What made the experience of listening to How to Stop Procrastination & Get More Done in Less Time! the most enjoyable?

    I liked it that the steps and advice areas were laid out in a very simple to follow fashion. Procrastination is pretty horrible and at times even debilitating. I cannot claim to the mains most productive man after listening to this, but i am certainly getting a lot more done in life than I used to....and vitally i am enjoying the process more.

    That it felt realistic and suitable and fitting to my own life! I found it very helpful.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    ??


    Have you listened to any of Christian Erickson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No but i liked his voice!


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Ummm not laugh or cry - it made me feel relieved that i was finally getting over my procrastination issues!


    Any additional comments?

    I noticed that whenever I get a lot of work, I start to procrastinate because of all of the stress that comes along with it. It's so easy to stress out and think about all of the work that needs to get done. I decided to download this book in order to stop me from procrastinating on the things that I really need to get done. It's so easy to say that I will do it later and then nothing gets done. I loved the tips in this book. I loved the advice to take a break and clear my mind. This has really helped me to become more efficient and to get more done. I feel more motivated after reading this book and feel that I will be able to stop procrastinating and get my work done.

    Great booK!

    I have always had issues with getting stuff done - I am one of those people who always TALKED about doing stuff and complained about stuff I was not happy with (such as having too much clutter in my house) but never ever did anything practical to solve these issues. I was procrastinating. It took me a long time to really accept this and stop making excuses. This book really helped me with basic but very interesting steps to follow to basically get off my butt and do more, both in my personal life and in work life. It is a work in progress thing but I can really say this book helped a LOT and I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone and everyone!

    Any additional comments?

    I wanted a book to help me get more productive and to stop procrastinating and delaying on everything, but I wanted one that did not involve me sitting for hours going thru nonsense I didn’t need. I just wanted advice, quick and simple…this is exactly what I got with this book. A lot of the stuff I had never heard before and the bits I had, had a new spin on it. Nice and simple listen, great narration and gets to the point very quickly. Recommended.

    "An outstanding and brilliant guide to manage time"
    What did you love best about How to Stop Procrastination & Get More Done in Less Time!?

    I just loved the narrator’s speech and listening to that voice was excellent to be able to work on things while getting tips and ideas to stop procrastination helped me a lot. I would recommend this audio book at 10/10 with other audio books. The tips and guidelines shared were very helpful. It’s one of the finest books ever I have ever purchased.
    I must say, as an audio book it was very well performed, overall, just loved it very much and encountered new experiences from this incredibly amazing audio book


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I listened to this audio book many times. It's not something you can pay attention to in one setting because the writer gives you particular projects to achieve throughout your day. Such projects & tasks include creating lists, adhering to your objectives, creating particular long lasting and temporary goals, and etc. This is a book you want to consume gradually to help make sure you are acting upon each step and really understanding each topic (section).


    Any additional comments?

    The exquisite tips and advices i got for those two hours were very helpful, and its impact has been positively impacting my fight towards removing procrastination. Being in a college, managing my time and handling all the tasks is been quite a difficult thing to do. Due to part-time jobs, traveling for fun with friends, family and enjoying myself, I have been regularly procrastinating so many things in my life. Reading and doing tasks have been among the best victims of delaying. When seeking help, one of my buddies recommended this guide.
    By listening to this amazing audio book, paying attention to the guide and applying the mentioned ideas, I have been able to reduce delay and avoid putting factors off by avoiding wasting time by eliminating delays and allocating less time to less important stuff and things. This guide is a must buy for anybody who is vulnerable to procrastination and will offer great help. Highly recommended!

    Where does How to Stop Procrastination & Get More Done in Less Time! rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I liked the narrators voice and listening was great to be able to work on things while getting tips and ideas to stop procrastinating helped me a lot. I would rank this an 8/10 with other audio books. The tips were useful.


    What does Christian Erickson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    calm soothing voice to listen to, not stumbling on words (how I do) just easier for a dyslexic like me to listen to things and understand everything and not have to stop and re read a section. I really enjoyed the narrators voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    sure I listened to it in one sitting while doing house chores. It's short and multitasking is my game. =)

    "This is the book I never knew I needed!"
    Where does How to Stop Procrastination & Get More Done in Less Time! rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would rank this one pretty high at the top, actually. The tips were really helpful for a procrastination-aholic like me. I have read quite a few books on productivity and time management, but I loved the sense of fun behind the efficiency of this one.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I guess you could say my favorites were the narrator -- and me! The book broke things down in a way that was easy to understand and digest: realistic little bits, instead of random psycho-babble that leaves the reader to connect the dots. There was also a bit of a humorous edge to the writing, which made facing those hard truths (such as, FINALLY admitting I'm a procrastinator) a lot more palatable.


    Which character – as performed by Christian Erickson – was your favorite?

    Erickson simply narrated the book, it wasn't a fiction book with characters. I have to admit, I found his voice nasal and grating at first -- really kind of unpleasant. But as we moved through this book together, I felt like I got to "know" him better, and began enjoying his company during my commute to work -- It wasn't easy to get our relationship to hat point — but we got there in the end!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was moved by the overall concept. This book made me feel like procrastination is just a fact of life; all humans do it, and it is OK to admit it so that we can try to get things moving in the right direction. The tone of the book wasn't preachy or judgmental, and that made me feel great about reading it.


    Any additional comments?

    Because the book is written in a friendly style, and doesn't make you feel like you're being lectured like a naughty child who didn't clean their room (though, admittedly, cleaning is one thing I do procrastinate!), I think it's a no-brainer choice for folks who are new to the self-help genre. Also, the concept of making small and manageable changes will win many readers over!

    "Make it happen!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of How to Stop Procrastination & Get More Done in Less Time! to be better than the print version?

    Yes definitely! The narrator was able to encapsulate the feeling of doing. He really helped me get motivated to get my work done and be more free.


    What other book might you compare How to Stop Procrastination & Get More Done in Less Time! to and why?

    I would compare this to previous books I've read in the past like "Get it done!" and "The art of doing". Both had very similar concepts.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I had to listen to this multiple times and throughout the day. It's not something you can listen to in one setting because the author gives you specific tasks to accomplish throughout your day. Such tasks include making lists, sticking to your goals, making specific long term and short term goals, and etc. This is a book you want to consume slowly in order to make sure you are acting upon each step and really understanding each chapter.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must read book. This was a great book because it helped me to get moving. Getting started is always a tough decision for me so this book was recommended by my friends. I am really thankful to them because it helped me break up my day into smaller, doable activities. I was not overwhelmed by the amount of tasks at hand.

    This book especially helped me in my freelancing career and my regular career at work. By listening to the book and applying the principles and actionable steps I was able to get promoted and increase customer satisfaction in my freelancing career. The author shared real life advice so he was sympathetic and cared for the reader.

    This book is fit for anybody who is a procrastinator. It will really provide assistance. I HIGHLY recommend this book. It will change your life! I already recommended this book to my friends and family. They can't stop talking about it!

    I have went thru many different books in this rough area in my time and I would sincerely put this up there with the best works by people like David Allen. It breaks down a quite complicated issue into easy to manage and easy to follow steps. Narration was great for this one, very engaging voice. I have already listened to this twice and feel like I will return to this many more times to remind myself of the key points.

    The best self help book by far that i've heard. Well laid out and inspiring. The narrator captures the tone of the writer perfectly.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes I listened to the whole thing start to finish as it was so engaging but it's also laid out in such a way that you can leap back and forth into sections. Great for a quiet afternoon or the drive to work.

    It was broken up into nice digestible parts that were full of great ideas and lessons on how to overcome procrastination. I was guilty of so many of the points that the book talked about but it wasn't till I heard them so clearly explained that I was able to face up to them.
