Soon: What Science, Philosophy, Religion and History Teach Us About the Surprising Power of Procrastination

Like so many of us, including most of America’s workforce, and nearly two-thirds of all university students, author Andrew Santella procrastinates.

Concerned about his habit but not quite ready to give it up, he set out to learn all he could about the human tendency to delay. He studied history’s greatest procrastinators — from Leonardo da Vinci to Frank Lloyd Wright, from Old Testament prophets to Civil War generals — to gain insights into human behavior, and also, he writes, to kill time, “research being the best way to avoid real work.” Santella offers a refreshingly sympathetic take on habitual postponement. (Why delay getting your ticket?)
