"Soon is funny and smart, but also--and I mean this as praise--a little insane...Despite its subtitle, Soon is not merely a "history"; it is a stylized re-creation of what happens when a procrastinator tires to write this history."--BookForum "Brief and poignant...Engaging, accessible, and frequently humorous...Fans of unusual historical facts and those who Try will find plenty of value in this self-help, psychological study."--Library Journal "Well-researched...[Soon] argues that in many cases eminent figures have done great work while putting off work they were supposed to be doing. Procrastination might, for some people, be part of innovation and the creative process."--Wall Street Journal "A witty, smart and, yes, motivating exploration into that quality that unites all of us: a knack for putting things off 'til tomorrow. Soon is a lively reminder that while necessity might be the mother of invention, delay can be the source of creative achievement."--Michael Hainey, author of After Visiting Friends "Soon is an utter delight. Casually erudite, full of delicious anecdotes and brutal honesty, it is catnip, in book form, for procrastinators and non-procrastinators alike."--Jennifer Egan, author of Manhattan Beach
