Product description


Joanne Foster... is one of those few authors who take a multi-modal approach to the problem, because let's face it- there ARE sometimes good personal reasons for procrastinating, good external reasons for putting things off, and robust reasons for delaying those insipid things that need to be done! If you want to be more productive, get things done - and get your kids and students to " get er done" - then pick up a copy of this book - without delay.- Dr. Michael F. Shaughnessy, Professor at Eastern New Mexico University; Editor, Gifted Education International

All teens will enjoy this quick, light, practical guide to overcoming procrastination. Whether they delay what needs to be done only on occasion or make a regular habit of it, they will find that Joanne Foster has come to the rescue with great tips to inspire, motivate and most important, break free of procrastination. Easy to read, understand and apply, the strategies in Bust Your Buts will be appreciated for a lifetime. -Sarah Chana Radcliffe, M.Ed.C.Psych., Author of "The Fear Fix"

It's easy to read, and being able to flip around the book BY DESIGN without a chronological approach, is user friendly.
