"It is rare to find a book that translates academically sound research into wise and helpful advice."
--Jeffrey P. Prince, University of California, Berkley
--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
Author, Neil Fiore, offers the first comprehensive strategy to overcome the causes of procrastination and to eliminate its deleterious effects. His techniques will help any busy person get more things done more quickly, without the anxiety and stress brought on by failure to meet the workplace's pressing deadlines. This revised, redesigned edition includes a new introduction and a section that provides strategies to understand and deal with the complex role technology plays in procrastination today.See all Product description

I would also recommend this with another book "Procrastination" by Jane Burka
I would recommend taking detailed notes from the book and implementing them stage by stage. The most important for me was the "Unschedule" It will help you to reassess your mental blocks when working
Just to add - 5 hours might not sound like a lot but that's 5 hours of pure work - no internet, no making tea, nothing else. I worked in offices for years and I do more focussed work in 5 hours now than I did in 8 then.
The book follows on with chapter 3, How to talk to yourself, explaining how the language used can affect procrastination habits, with chapter 4 concentrated on how to live a guilt-free life(i.e. Not putting the things off that we want to do without feeling guilty), an issue that can affect those that are busy and have responsibility towards others...), which plays a major part in life and work.
Chapter 5, Overcoming blocks to action and chapter6, The unschedule, gives ways of improving procrastination habits and overcoming obstacles that allows procrastination to affect our way of life. Chapter 7, Working in the flow state includes focus and relaxation techniques of viewing exercises and tasks, with chapter 8, fine-tuning your progress, relating to setbacks and failures when attempting to combat procrastination and concentration techniques. The last chapter, The procrastination in your life is an overview of the many topics and issues discussed in the book, and my overall view is that this book can guide and help in understanding and tackling procrastination.
I previously had this in paperback and on audio book. As soon as I got a Kindle (only just because I am a Luddite) it was my first purchase. It's a great book for helping your to combat procrastination, which for many is an ongoing struggle.
