What did you like best about The 5 Second Rule? What did you like least?

I think the 5 Second Rule itself is a great tool to put into practice but I agree w the other reviewers who note how repetitive the book is. It reads more like a radio show or podcast than a book. Some of the examples were motivating but I felt much of the book was filler and Mel trying too hard to persuade the reader why it works (reader is beaten over the head as another reviewer put it).

What does Mel Robbins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is enthusiastic and persuasive.

Was The 5 Second Rule worth the listening time?

I wouldn't listen to the whole book again. The beginning is sufficient for me.

fantastic content from the author however the narrator's performance left me exhausted...i wish he wouldn't read quite so fast so the listener can digest the profound truths of the book.
