This review is from: The Now Habit: A Strategic Program for Overcoming Procrastination and Enjoying Guilt-Free Play (Kindle Edition)
Ok, I will start with the positives. This book does make some really good concepts in the first half of the book. I do like the way it tells you when there is a task to do to always say "I want to or I choose to" rather than "I have to or I need to". It is a clever concept to make you stop making yourself the victim in your own head. I found it interesting him talking to people and their problems with procrastination and 1 or 2 I really could relate to and I started thinking this makes sense and I also liked that he likes to take pressure of people... so I really felt his ideas were really leading to something that would help me.
My problem with the book is when you actually get to the last couple of chapters at the climax and he's actually putting his method across "the unschedule" (basically the whole reason for reading the book). I think his method is entirely useless. So it's to create a calender with every hour of the week on a spreadsheet, take away your sleep, take away events, time for leisure and see what you have left, then don't mark down any time to do work, just do it when you can? I'm sorry but I found it entirely useless and his methods riciculous. Fair play if he's helped others and good luck to them, but I find it staggering the amount of 5 star reviews of this book.
