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.
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!
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 heard Hal's story through an interview he did with Pat Flynn (smart Passive Income). I was intrigued by the man's story and impressed with this book. A lot of thought obviously went into this project. I half expected to be disappointed with vacuous rambling about something that could be summed up in 10 minutes... Not the case. His method and procedure are outlined, dissected, and presented in a way that everyone can try. Hal sprinkles his content with a other resources that dovetail with his method which I very much appreciated. I am coincidentally reading "Think And Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill as part of my morning.... The very same book Hal read when he first implemented his "miracle morning"
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.
The overall application points and functional aspects of the Miracle Morning are great. But the whole content could be boiled down to a five page summary. There are a lot of shameless plugs and "advertisements" for The Miracle Morning website, even if the plugs are commercials are pushing me towards free things. Lastly, too many stories by the author about himself and his VIP clients. The actual aspects of the Miracle Morning aren't discussed until the third chapter. Do yourself a favor and start with chapter three.
But back to the content... A really good morning routine to develop healthy and positive habits. It is making a difference in my day and life. I just wish the book had been written better.
