If I hadn’t read this book, I might never have forgiven myself for taking so long to finish it. The Art of Procrastination: A Guide to Effective Dawdling, Lollygagging and Postponing is a slim, sly volume that offers reassuring explanations for a life-long affliction and comfortably proves why sometimes it actually is better to put of till tomorrow what could be accomplished right then. I would advise you to make the purchase of this book your top priority, but now know that might make you all the less likely to follow through immediately. My next task: writing a thank you note to author/philosopher John Perry, professor emeritus at Stanford. I apologize in advance, Mr. Perry, if I don’t get around to it.

I've been putting off writing this review: procrastination. Now I know why! This book tells all about dilly-dallying and killing time, with humor, wit, and the reasons why. And, not least, the author reveals some of the up sides of procrastination. Don't put off reading it!
