Found this book very useful. Not a long read at all so it should be manageable for basically anyone. Some complained about difficult concepts or difficult terms but I couldn't find any examples of either (I took 1 psychology class in college so I don't have a particularly strong background in the field or anything).

Seriously a no non-sense guide to tackle the problem of "Procrastination". The best part of the book is that it is so concise and directly hits to the core of the problem. Though every chapter has "Strategies for Change", which are practical insights but at places the book becomes too theoretical (that's the reason I am giving 4 stars). Last chapter on technology and procrastination is like an icing on the cake. Overall I'll suggest this book to anyone who is serious in beating procrastination.
