So, there's this marketing strategy in which you write a book as a lead-generator. Under this strategy, your goal isn't to make money from the book itself, but to get broader exposure, so you can find more potential customers for the other things you sell.
Typically, you'll invite the reader to download some bonus content at the end, in exchange for joining your mailing list. Usually, this is fine. If I got a lot of value out of a book, I'm happy to sign up. But this author missed the "get a lot of value out of the book" part. Now, I'm not knocking the program itself. I think it's very good, and people I know have gotten lot of benefit out of it.
But the *book* is a waste of time. Here's why: 1) The actual, useful content is maybe 15 pages long (and could be summarized in a few sentences). 2) There isn't much detail. I didn't learn anything from the book that my friend didn't tell me when she recommended it. The author gives an overview of what to do, but includes very few examples of how to implement that. He throws in lots of testimonials, but no actual case studies to model our own practice on. 3) There is a ton of filler. It's crammed with breathless descriptions of how "life-changing" it all is, how you'll be "blown away", and how you'll live your "best life ever", but very little detail of how that will happen or what it will look like. 4) The author intentionally leaves out detail to force you to sign up for the bonuses. Instead of sharing several examples of affirmations, he lists just one, then tells you to download the rest. (Which requires you to join his list.) The 30-day transformation chapter doesn't actually include the transformation, it just tells you to download it. (Which requires joining the list.) Then it tells you to recruit your friends to his list.
Again: if the bonuses were truly *supplemental*, that wouldn't be a problem. But they're not. That content belongs in the book itself. Essentially, the book is a quick summary of his method, and an extended sales pitch for joining his list. (And making your friends join his list. And buying the book for them. And becoming "VIP coaching client.")
In a free ebook, that would be fine. But in a book I paid for, it feels slimy and manipulative.
I love the program, but the author has completely lost my trust.
My recommendation:- Read a summary of the method. (There are YouTube videos and Amazon reviews that cover all the detail you need.)- If you must buy the book, get it in text, so you can skim past all the filler. If you must get the audio, skip the first 90 minutes.
Those who have never read any self-help books and don't know anything about self development and effective life probably will find this book interesting. For others don't even bother. Absolutely mediocre and banal recommendations, lots of water, big words, in general extremely boring...
The author started with a touching story of his life and I hoped he would give some interesting and new insights but no... nothing new or revealing. The author is actually a sales person in the past.
The whole idea of the book can be expressed in a simple rule: wake up early in a positive mood and do something important. You don't need to right a whole book about that.
No. The singsongy quality of the narrator was a distraction and ironically (given the title and content) had a sleep inducing quality. I've heard interviews with the author Hal Elrod - his energy level would have infused this book with far more life and charismatic interest.
The author should have read the book.
Get up earlier, drink lots of water right away, plan my day and stick to it, create solid morning rituals that are non-negotiable.
I would suggest having both. I have both. I feel I can assimilate better if I read then listen to it. I have both, paper and audio version.
Wake up early and be productive and focus to achieve my goals.
It's a book that I can read and re-read it.
The core of personal development is repetition. This concept I immediately implemented into my daily routine, and I know that future journeys through the content will better assist my mastery of the miracle morning in my life.
The author has stories I can identify with and his experiences are obviously relevant to the concept.
Rob has a soothing voice that makes the content enjoyable. Its rare to find voice work of this caliber.
I intended to listen over a few trips, but instead listened to it twice completely on a long drive.
The concept is brilliant, yet not too complicated to be consumed by novice self-developers. Rob delivers Hal's content and concept in a pleasant way, and anyone can benefit from learning what The Miracle Morning has to offer. Listen/Read this book today!
I have read many books and have achieved significant success in many areas of my life and I can honestly say that this book is definitely a catalyst that helped me achieve the success that I was looking for - faster. It is in my Top 5 and I highly recommend it.
It ranks highly. The miracle morning helps you to identify 7 causes of mediocracy and gives you tips to avoid it. It helped me realize you don't find your purpose, but you create it. Of course it also tells you the 6 steps to start your day with and therefore achieve your goals.
The compound effect & Mini habits
It made me laugh and gave me inspiration
I found it a bit too much when reference to self was made often when author relates most of the events to his own life. It was OK initially but it became a bit loud. The concepts mentioned in the book is certainly motivating and pushed me to consider it practicing it (rather started doing it) pretty seriously with my own adaptation (not precisely the way author narrated). I would surely recommend this for a one time read if not more.
I loved the BALANCED-life approach he teaches, and saw results immediately after implementing what I learned. Within 90 days, I doubled my income using Hal's techniques from the book. Absolutely phenomenal!!
I learned how to train myself to wake up EXCITED like it's "Christmas morning" every morning. I've never been a morning person, but his book taught me to LOVE waking up early
This is an absolute MUST-READ for anyone who can benefit from increased productivity and balance in his/her life.
I love to read but I never have time any more...enter Audible! & I love it!
Really good! Only my second book I have listened to since signing up with Audible!
Hal breaking down each step and how to get started.
I like every time he said "Yo Pal Hal" made me chuckle. Rob was excellent.
