Stop Procrastination (John Welker)

Stop Procrastination
John Welker
First Choice Publishing
Nonfiction, Self-Help
*** (Okay)

DESCRIPTION: Procrastination is more than just a character quirk or a habit. It negatively impacts all aspects of one's life, not to mention the drain it puts on others. Learn the costs and causes of procrastination, and strategies to overcome it.
A Kindle-exclusive title.

REVIEW: Another quick-reading freebie Kindle download, it's about what one might expect based on the title... if one doesn't expect too much. Welker tends to downplay the impact of others on creating procrastination habits, especially in the workplace: few things drive a body to feel that effort isn't worthwhile like a poorly-run business and toxic co-workers. He also mentions depression as a cause while glossing over the potential seriousness of the disorder. The "strategies" section seems a little anemic, as well; most of the book deals with types of procrastinators, reasons people procrastinate, and the costs of the habit. Though Welker is American, the writing was clearly outsourced, with many subtle grammar issues that trip up the reader. Overall, it's not a bad overview of procrastination, but it's unlikely to change any lives.
