 —Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

“Illuminating….Piers Steel shows us the secrets of procrastination, how it affects us and how we will, one day, be able to prevail.”
—Dan Ariely, author of The Upside of Irrationality and Predictably Irrational

Using a mix of psychology, evolutionary biology, self-help, and more than a decade of research, Dr. Piers Steel, the world’s foremost authority on procrastination, offers a tried and true method helping us to identify, understand, and break free of our self-destructive bad habits and create more positive lives for ourselves.

From the Back Cover:

Do you surf the Web instead of finishing overdue projects? Do you always say you’ll start that diet . . . tomorrow? Do you stay up late watching television instead of going to bed?

You are not alone. In fact, you belong to the 95 percent of the world that admits to procrastination. We are hardwired to procrastinate, and with so many new ways to distract ourselves in the digitized world, putting things off has never been easier.

Using a mix of psychology, science, self-help advice, and his own research, Dr. Piers Steel—internationally recognized as the foremost authority on procrastination—dispels the myths and misunderstandings of motivation, replacing them with a clear explanation of why we put off until tomorrow what we should be doing today and providing cutting-edge techniques you need to get things done in the workplace and at home.
