Please, if you have not read the original book, don't hesitate to buy it if you have problems with procrastination. You actually don't need this book to know how to apply that knowledge to your job.
I honestly feel the book is a work of self-help brilliance. Chapter Two, "Time and Life Management", really stood out for me. One simple paragraph in particular, a brief three sentences in length, made a light bulb go off over my head that was so bright it probably got reported by the Weather Channel. Any reader who really wraps their mind around the idea it expresses will find life simultaneously simpler and more productive.
The back-cover blurb by author Daniel F. Seidman, PhD, explains the above much better than I can; Neil's writing "makes the reader say 'of course' as if they are learning something they knew all along but couldn't quite grasp." Yes, the "Aha" moments in these pages are many. But don't let the apparent simplicity of THE NOW HABIT AT WORK fool you. Some of its content is actually somewhat abstract, and thus may be foolishly overlooked by those who casually skim self-help books searching for less atypical notions.
No one on the planet understands the nature of procrastination better than Neil Fiore, PhD. And the tools and tips he's gathered since his first book on the subject twenty-two years ago are all useful gems.
Get it. Read it. But only if you want to finally actually do something about not doing something.
The book was so good, I decided to get this one even if there was only a few additional details not already covered in "The Now Habit". I was pleasantly surprised to find that while there is a natural overlap and evolution in the content, all of the content is either new, or presents an *actionable* set of tools you can immediately implement.
This is an amazing book: straightforward, simple and action-focused. This is worth many times the actual book value.
