Pete Larkin’s smart-aleck vibe works well with this assertive guide, which debunks a good many myths about procrastination and pulls no punches regarding what you should do about it. Some smugness creeps into the performance here and there, but it’s not out of character with the confidence in this lucid writing. The author, a professor and consultant, shows how behavioral and neurological research points to two broad reasons people don’t finish important tasks: They avoid starting or continuing such tasks when they believe the work will not be enjoyable, vital, or likely to be completed successfully, and they drift away from the work because of distractibility, poor impulse control, and a poor sense of time. The second half of the book is devoted to clear advice and strategies. T.W. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2012]
