The Art of Procrastination: A Guide to Effective Dawdling, Lollygagging and Postponing

Written By:  John Perry
Publisher: HighBridge Company

From the Press Release

Book Description:

John Perry's insights and laugh-out-loud humor bring to mind Thurber, Wodehouse, and Harry Frankfort. This charming and accessible audio educates, entertains, and illuminates a universal subject. Procrastinators will be relieved to learn that actually you can accomplish quite a lot while procrastinating. In fact, the book itself is the result of Perry avoiding grading papers, refereeing academic proposals, and reviewing dissertation drafts. It also has a practical side, offering up advice that listeners can put to use. Who knew that placing "Learn Chinese" at the top of your to-do list would inspire you to get the less monumental tasks below it done? Witty, wise, and beautifully written, The Art of Procrastination is the perfect book for all the lollygaggers out there.
