Review quote

"It is rare to find a book that translates academically sound research into wise and helpful advice." --Jeffrey P. Prince, University of California, Berkley "THE NOW HABIT is the definitive bible for releasing anyone's procrastinating past and becoming a 'producer.' This book is my go-to recommendation to my clients (and myself!) for beating procrastinatiomn and the guilt that comes with it." --Lisa Rothstein, "The DaVinci Dilemma" "I recommend THE NOW HABIT to my coaching clients and friends and family members because it provides clear, practical, effective advice for gettingthings done without beating yourself up." --Liisa Kyle, Ph.D, co-author of" Happiness Awaits You" "If procrastination is a major problem in your life - or even a minor problem - this book is well worth a reading. The techniques in this book are mostly psychological, but that does not mean they're not incredibly powerful if used appropriately. Plus, the techniques here dovetail well with many other personal development philosophies, so you don't have to toss out what you already know and what already works for you in order to adopt THE NOW HABIT" --The SImple Dollar "'I've found THE NOW HABIT by Neil Fiore, Ph.D. to be a phenomenal resource for many clients who struggle with procrastination. Fiore helps you figure out why you are procrastinating and offers concrete exercises and strategies to overcome the most common blocks to getting started. This is a fantastic book." --Carrie Spaulding, The Thirty-something Coach
