One Long Marketing Pitch

On content:
The first hour-plus will loop around the premise of why high performance habits are key to your success followed by Mr. Burchard's case for why he's the trainer to show you how only to be followed by another exhortation of why high performance habits are key. If that sentence drove you a bit batty, imagine having to listen to one elongated intro that extends nearly two chapters. You'll get to Chapter 3, roughly 15:12, before he names the habits that comprise the set.

What might frustrate you: You're advised to take the free performance assessment. Once you run through the questionnaire, you'll be inundated with marketing emails, some of which do not include a link to unsubscribe. (Borderline violation of CAN-SPAM.) The book seems set up to accompany the questionnaire and so you find yourself in this multi-layered ad campaign for his training advisement.

(One irony: He makes a point of how one client wrote to him about how conventional assessments like Myers-Brigg and personal attributes (e.g. gender and race) don't really tell the whole story of personal potential. And yet, on the questionnaire, you'll be asked questions about your race, gender, and marital status.)

On performance:
He has a pretty good reading voice. Unfortunately, he over-performs at times, by effecting the cadence and pitch of certain clients, as with the case of Kate, a female executive (and yet not for John, a male executive). This can across a bit off-putting.

Yikes. Wayyyyyyy too much useless fluff.

I couldn't listen to one more word from this book. The first hour or two consists of him just talking about all the research he did for this, and how we might hypothetically be feeling right now. The actual habits are okay, I guess, but this book should have been less than one hour long.

GET TO THE POINT. That's definitely not one of this guy's habits.

Ah-mazing for book for life

This is my first introduction to Brendon Burchard's work. I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with this research and the easy way Mr. Burchard applies it to life. His story telling makes the material even more relatable. I believe this is a book all entrepreneurs should have!

very good book. a lot of useful information.

what I lived about this book was that the advice was very practical and could be applied right way unlike many other books in this genre. It felt like I was taking a course on high performance. I loved that even in audiobook format I got the same sense if structure that you get in an actual physical books. I can recall the different sections and actually listen to this again like I would re read a book. I got real real strategies for real poeple. It went in depth and author provides resources (like worksheets etc) to be able to apply the strategies right away.

New league

This is in a league all its own. I spent the last three days listening to Brendon read his manuscript, and his soothing voice and wisdom helped me get through some hard days just after quitting an antidepressant medicine. I was an achiever that hit a plateau and slump, but after listening to High Performance Habits, I now have the keys to taking my personal and professional lives to ANY LEVEL NO MATTER HOW HIGH.

Enlightening and well presented

Brandon presents a lot of interesting information in High Performance Habits, and some of his revelations are counter intuitive and fall outside the common conceptions about beneficial habits. I particularly appreciate the references he provides that direct listeners to online resources related to the written materials.

High Performance Habits is an excellent resource for every person interested in living a better, more productive, and satisfying life.

Very poor.

After listening for over an hour I'm still bewildered with the things that are meant to help, the secrets are to elusive. No real information to improve

Dull

Lasted an hour - the sort of time I often give books which don't grab me, and that was enough. He's doing well business wise, so something is going right, but for me, it isn't the content of this audiobook ..... couldn't last any longer ... attention and interest disappeared

Brilliant

It’s one of those books that you never want to end even though it’s 10 hours!
This, in my opinion is the best self help book I’ve read. What Brendon says is not only clear but he puts it in a way in which it’s possible to apply one step at a time. This and how to win friends are at the top of the self help tree for me. Buy it now!
