"As various scholars argue in 'The Thief of Time' a collection of essays on procrastination, ranging from the resolutely theoretical to the surprisingly practical - the tendency raises fundamental philosophical and psychological issues." --The New Yorker
"This collection is good reading for anyone who would like to do philosophy on the subject of procrastination or who seeks to procrastinate her work by reading interesting things." --Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
"[This book] deals in fresh ways with well-known philosophical problems: will and rationality and their weaknesses, vice and virtue, identity, the nature of lived time. And more importantly, Andreou and White's collection often weds these questions to ordinary struggles and anxieties - lucidly and sometimes enjoyably.... All in all, 'The Thief of Time' does two important things. It explores standard philosophical problems with rigour and erudition. And it examines a widespread, human, all-too-human failing with sensitivity, clarity and practicality. In this, Andreou and White's anthology rewards a careful, patient reading." --The Philosopher's Magazine
