  • "This book just might change your life. It changed mine. I had read every other book on procrastination before finding this book, including the others mentioned in these reviews. This is, quite simply, the BEST book; completely different from the rest. It is quite possibly the best self-help book I have ever read. It may also be one of the best books ever written on anxiety and on achieving one's goals in life - subjects which I have learned are all connected."


  • "I found The Now Habit, very helpful -- easy to read, smart and dead on in it's observations of why people procrastinate and which approaches tend to work (and which don't). From the start, the author makes clear that, for most people, beating yourself up isn't the way to beat procrastination. If it was, you'd have solved your challenges long ago. He explains how procrastination is often a rational defense against fears of failure or success. This alone is worth the read and the book delivers quite a bit more. I also liked the book's tone, which is conversational and matter-of-fact. Fiore doesn't talk down or suck up or try to "motivate" you. "


  • "This book is great, it gives you practical advice combined with theory, such that you want to follow the program, and once you do, it works for you.
    I've read lots of books on productivity, this is the best."
