    "One Bit of Wisdom, Find the Rest on YouTube"

    This is easy. You want to know what the Miracle Morning entails?
    Get up early.
    There. That's it. You get up early, meditate, say affirmations, journal, exercise, drink smoothies that are blended super foods. For the rest you can find a plethora of examples of how people are doing on YouTube.
    One thing that irked me about Elrod was how glib he was about the concept that there is actually no such thing as sleep deprivation: As long as you go to bed with the mindset that you will wake up filled with energy and joy, you will indeed wake up refreshed and raring to go.
    But here's the thing that blew me away, and I'll share it, for what it might be worth it to you. It's rather given me pause as I've lollygagged in bed:
    "Would you rather stay inert and unconscious than be creative and alive?"
    Now THAT has gotten me moving.
    Not a miracle, exactly, but I appreciate that one line.

    "Great program, AWFUL book"

    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.

    "Underwhelmed! Weak content."

    I found the content in this book to be a LOT less useful than I expected. There are a few crumbs of good advice scattered throughout the book but overall I'm very disappointed! A one sentence summary of the book is... Get up earlier and you'll get more done. That's pretty much it.

    There's absolutely no medical foundation or obvious research for most of the advice in the book. I would caution anyone that uses the approach recommended in the book to do your own medical research first to make sure you're not setting yourself up for health problems down the road.

    It's also full of a lot of what I consider low-value common-sense fluff that had the appearance of just filling time. If it weren't the fast speed (3x) capability in my Audible app, I never would have made it through the book. 2x speed was very close to a normal speech speed so I can't fathom listening in normal speed.

    "The most mediocre self-help book"
    Would you try another book from Hal Elrod and/or Rob Actis?

    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.

    "Could be written in one paragraph, instead of a book"

    I love the concept, wake up early so you have time to do self improvement in the morning. You only will get the achievement you want if you make time to improve yourself internally. But that's it! Why on earth write an entire book just to repeat this idea and promote yourself?? It's such a waste of my time, can't bare the author's constant brag of how many people's life has he profoundly impacted, and repeat 1000 times.

    "Total Waste of Time and Money"

    The narrator is great. But the book is absolutely awful. You need to buy a book about waking up early? Really? My grandma did that all her life without reading any books like this, and she died at the age of 85. "The Not-so-obvious secret" is a very deceiving title. Waking up early, sleep less, meditate, drink smoothies, etc. are not something that is not so obvious.

    This book is an absolute waste of time and money. Don't even bother buying it.

    "Great idea... but designed to sell you more!"

    The core idea of the morning ritual are great. Nothing new but classical old school personal development ideas: meditate, do affirmations,visualize, exercise, read and journal - and do it all as part of your morning ritual.

    What really puts me off with the book is how the entire book is delivered in a sickening 1970's personal-development jargon as if speaking to a child.

    Every time he wants to say 'my client', he says: "my favorite VIP success coaching clients". And every paragraph includes the phrase: "so you can create the life you desire AND deserve"

    It's also totally designed to sell you more. He even has a whole chapter dedicated to try to generate referrals by making you send his book to friends and link them to his website - covering it up with "accountability partner will help you".

    Seriously, people are smarter than that, Hal. I'd much rather have a pure pitch than sneaky marketing like this wasting people's time.

    On top of that the whole book is filled with: "got i my website to get this extra piece I couldn't put in the book for no particular reason", and on the website he has an email form where you need to opt-in to his marketing machine - to get it.

    "Sort of like one long commercial for itself"

    Not impressed. Got the gist within the first 60-mins. I've read a few self-help style books so the concepts in this one aren't much different than others. Perhaps, if this is your first time delving into the world of self-help, then you may find it useful. Otherwise, it's a pass. Also, I didn't appreciate the whole "tell your friends and family about this book...log into the website, etc." spiel within the first hour. Like, at the end of your book ask for me to spread the good word, but maybe teach me something substantial first. Otherwise I'm just telling people to wake up early in the morning to get shit done.

    "5 hours of Advertisements"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone open to being pounded with advertisements for the Miracle Morning for 5 hours straight.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It's a good concept, however, I learned nothing from the 5 hours that I didn't already know from a summary of the book. Wake up early, focus on yourself- meditation, exercise, affirmations.

    "Do not buy!"

    This is not a book.

    It's a scam. A clever way to get us to pay money for one giant ego stroking advertisement for an intangible product that probably is just as much of a farce as this crap.

    "Way too much waffle, not much substance"

    This audio book could have been 20 minutes long to convey the message. I'd advise just googling miracle morning, it's not anything new and there are way better self improvement books out there.

    This book is a must read if you want a simple hack in your life to unlock your full potential. No excuses.

    Would have change: repetitive over selling add-ons and related products affect very negatively the overall performance of what could have been a timeless book.

    "Very little to no good information!"

    I personally didn't like this book. Up to almost half way through the book, you don't get to the actual topic of the book. Many side stories through the book and not getting to the point. Even the parts of the book that is related to the topic, do not provide any new information that is not already available on the Internet.

    "Good book - bit religious / American"

    Good book,

    Interesting concept but very simple.

    One of those books that refers you to their website a lot for additional content which I don't personally like.

    Also views on suicide and a general religious undertone not to my taste - a bit preachy

    In summary, 1 hours content, 3 hours waffle, slightly annoying reader and unwanted opinions on religion and suicide.

    Worth a look but you won't listen again and again

    "Nice, but not really really helpful"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Actually I aspected something more "reviling". I could not find a very useful trick to improve my morning. It is too long for not too valuable informations.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The only thing I find Hal very inspiring. His story is strong, his must have a very unique caracter and soul


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Rob Actis?

    yes why not


    Do you think The Miracle Morning needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    maybe, this version is not complete I think


    Any additional comments?

    overall not i bad book, but I would not gift it

    What disappointed you about The Miracle Morning?

    The author takes ages to actually get to the point, and I don't feel like there was any real groundbreaking revelations in here. Also, I got put off by the fact that he's essentially just telling you to get up earlier in the morning and do a bunch of stuff - who's got the time for that?!


    Has The Miracle Morning put you off other books in this genre?

    I've read better books in this genre. Will be more carefully reading the reviews on other books first, as most people seem to agree.

    "Don't waste your precious time on this book"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I think that this book is dangerously close to useless. It has an inspirational story (sort of) is fairly well read, but the basic premise - you can transform your life by waking up an hour earlier and doing stuff - is, well, it's not an insight worth paying for.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I think that the narrator did an ok job. It's not that well written.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I'm mostly disappointed by this book. I suppose, deep down, I'm a little angry that someone presumes to tell us that something like getting up in time will make our lives better, but I suppose that the author means well.
