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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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... <br/>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.<br/>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.

Incredibly motivating

I’m giving this book five stars, not because it’s the best-written book, but because of the effect it had on my life. Without going into too much detail, I will simply say that this book really motivated me. Within one day of starting it, I began to implement all of the six practices Elrod talks about. I started getting up one hour earlier every day, including Saturdays and Sundays. I made lists. I am acting on the lists. I am getting tons of things done every day that have been on an imaginary “to do” list in my mind for years. I am on day seventeen and have set a goal for myself to continue to practice these six activities every day for an entire year.

I am a pretty self-motivated person, and I am also a “morning person.” Even so, I found the concepts in this book have really helped me get organized, stop procrastinating, and get things done. I also feel more purposeful in what I am doing with my life. It’s a great feeling!

I would recommend this book for anyone, of any age, who is feeling stuck, overwhelmed, without direction, or otherwise needs a new technique to motivate them to pursue their dreams.

[I listened to this as an audio book read by Rob Actis, who did a very good job. Good book to listen to while exercising!]

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.

It was ok, but in places reasonably obvious!

This book is ok, but could easily have been half as long! So much waffle, so many repeated phrases. A bit of motivation is good, but this was to American for my liking!

Don't waste your credit.

This is a nice idea that can be summed up in one sentence - For greater success, get up an hour earlier and use this time to invest in yourself.

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.

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

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.

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

Doing the work

I have a habit of listening to a ton of person so development and business audio books and rarely take action on their contents. Before reading this book I decided I would follow it's advice and take proper notes. I have only completed the first day but firmly believe that the 6 savers steps will set me up every day in the right way to create permanent changes and improvements. There are so many areas in my life that I want to improve and the overwhelm stops me from starting. Simply starting each day on a positive note will be the catalyst to make real change. I have 6 hours asleep ahead of me and I'm looking forward to waking up and starting my Saturday early.

The book is a great listen and the points are made well without being repetitive and boring. I'm already excited to listen to this book again.

Nuggets of wisdom surrounded by fluff

TMM is motivating and encouraging. Hal is an incredible individual and a real inspiration. I can't wait to start my medical mornings!

The good bits however are smothered by over selling, promises of miraculous changes to your life and a whole bunch of other fluff. Time is precious and I wish it was written in a more succinct style, and that was me listening to the audio book on 2x speed!

I still highly recommend the book, Hal's story and the lessons the reader learns, but just need to warn of the extra waffle thrown in!

A change maker

I have to admit to being a bit scepter all when I listened to the first couple of chapters, but I went with it. I have to say, I really do believe that this book will have a profound impact on my life. The idea of setting aside time early to do things that will help you become the person you would love to be, makes sense. I have done 2 consecutive mornings and loved them both. I also really admire and respect how Hal breaks down all the negative thought patterns and limiting beliefs that would potentially stop you from meditating, visualizing or saying affirmations. There were times I felt like he was reading my mind, but by the end I was more willing to accept that even though I might not have been able to do something in my life, I can now. I'll be listening again. And again. Thanks Hal!

Packed full of goodness! Even if you don't apply the ritual of the miracle morning, the last 10 minutes of the book (if applied) will be worth the investment of time and money.

Good Read

I have only give this 4 stars due to already having listened to some seminars by Hal, perhaps if the information was brand new to me I would have been on more of a buzz like when I originally found him and given it a 5!

This book along with Mindset by Carol Dweck have literally changed me into the person I've been trying to be for years!

Definitely recommended.
