I read about half of this book. The methods and strategies is suggests using are not bad, but the book is highly repetitive. It's as if the author thinks you won't understand what he is saying unless he tells you 7 times. This book could have been half the length and just as good. I got bored of hearing the same things over and over again.

Essentially, learn to do things as they happen in smaller increments instead of letting them pile up to become huge projects that seem insurmountable so that
Poorly organized, but pregnant with useful gems. I didn't expect to get much out of this, but it is, so far, the best book on procrastination I've read, significantly more useful than Steel's much-touted Procrastination Equation.
Timothy Pychyl of the awesome productivity podcast, “iProcrastinate,” often cites William Knaus’ research and conclusions, so I was motivated to check this book out and see if Dr. Knaus had anything new to offer. He structures his prescription for overcoming procrastination into a three-pronged program, using cognitive, emotive, and behavioral approaches.

I can never pass up a time management book. I devour them like they will reveal magical powers to make everything better. I often find a good tip or two, but in the end it is still work.

Repetitive and poorly organized.

Good information. A tough read on a Kindle due to all the charts, so I would recommend a physical copy. I learned from this book, though we already know the underlying lessons from the Stoics (which this book cites quite a bit), which is: be mindful of your own thoughts and biorhythms. Buts it's good to be reminded of this in different ways.
Not the best read on a Kindle/e-reader, alas, due to all the charts. Tim Pychyl from iProcrastinate often cites Knaus' research, and the book does deliver on that. Overall a good, if slightly repetitive read. I suspect that a paper copy would be more useful for the practical application of the strategies outlined within it.
Some interesting points in the book. However there is a lot of info more relevant for someone who works a full time job for a business. The book offers a lot of charts and participation pages that I wish I owned the book to partake in.

A lot of information presented in a rather dry, clinical way, but I found it useful. (My first eBook from the library!)
