    The author takes time in explaining why we tend to procrastinate and highlights the different styles of procrastination. He also provides plenty of methods and practical steps on how to overcome procrastination for anyone that is new to it. For me personally it wasn't as helpful or encouraging. I personally don't see myself as a thrill-seeker (which is the closest type I could identify with). Whilst I work best under pressure, I'm not sure if I find it thrilling doing things last minute and I ce The author takes time in explaining why we tend to procrastinate and highlights the different styles of procrastination.

I personally don't see myself as a thrill-seeker (which is the closest type I could identify with). Whilst I work best under pressure, I'm not sure if I find it thrilling doing things last minute and I certainly don't find sleepless nights thrilling at all. Perhaps reading the book rather than listening to audiobook during my commute would have been better as I found the narrator slightly monotonous. So all in all I would probably give it 3.5 stars. The extra 0.5 star for my favourite part on when procrastination can in fact be useful in certain instances!

    WARNING This book ruined my morning commute! But not in a bad way. I listen to audiobooks on my daily commute and this book broke up my typically smooth drive. I had to keep pausing it and backing up so I could really listen to what the author was saying. This is no fault of the author or the narrator. There was a lot of very valuable information being presented. I started bookmarking sections so that I could go back and take notes when I got to work. I would then listen to the section again and WARNING This book ruined my morning commute! But not in a bad way.

This is no fault of the author or the narrator. There was a lot of very valuable information being presented. I started bookmarking sections so that I could go back and take notes when I got to work. I would then listen to the section again and research the topic to get a deeper understanding. In The Science of Getting Started, Patrick King discusses the many reasons why we procrastinate and why we fail to start. He not only tells us why, but he covers several tools and methods to help combat procrastination. These strategies can be used at work and at home. I think many of us don't understand what makes goals so daunting, or what makes large projects seem too daunting to start. Patrick King takes several well-researched methods and breaks them down into simple, easy to understand and easy to implement tools.

    Great advice I felt like this book was speaking to me. I kept messaging parts of it to a BFF, who was having motivation problems. It is laid out clearly and he explains things good and concisely. I would recommend this book to all who struggle with procastination!

    Has some great strategies and ways of identifying your own personal procrastination problems. Loses steam in the last couple chapters; did not much care for Colin Powell's 40-70, regarding Intelligence Decisions, for obvious reasons. Energy Pyramid bit did nothing for me.

    If I have any complaints about this book it's that it's so jam-packed with information and ideas that you simply shouldn't sit down and read it in one or even 5 sittings. I highly recommend going through one chapter a day at most. Or just read a few pages whenever you're feeling discouraged of find yourself procrastinating. Each chapter has 3 main lessons, and they're way bigger than you can implement in a day.

It's the ultimate overview of mindset tricks and hacks, but also practical advice and motivation. I love that everything is science-based and the author tells you where he gets his information. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to get more out of their time and live a bigger life.

    The ideas here are solid. Every reader will find something to implement and benefit from right away. That's also my main critique of the book. It's a lot of ideas, tools and approaches, and reading it as a book in a couple of sittings makes it daunting, as it - ironically - can make it harder to choose what to try. I think the book would have benefitted from a kind of "listicle" layout, where you could read about different tools for a concrete challenge and then pick one to try.

Maybe a bit hastely put together structure wise, but that doesn't change the value of the content. Read it in small chunks - or multiple times - to maximize value.

    It is a good book for specific people that are struggling with procrastination. Mainly because explains a bit of how we sabotage ourselfs and very clear ways to solve it. But is not for somebody that is looking for a trascendent lifestyle change, more for some practical advice

    Great Really identifies reasons for procrastination and then gives ways to resolve them. The work expands to the time allotted is a very good statement. I tried over the years to explain this to bosses wanting to implement overtime.

    Lots of good suggestions to overcome procrastination. The booked appeared kind of chintzy to me, and I think it's a self-published work, but as such, the quality is still pretty good overall.

    This book was good, but nothing crazy eye opening to me. It was definitely helpful though to think about my procrastination habits and get tips on how to improve.
