UPDATE: Just finished it. Wow. Writing that is often so bad that I laughed out loud; fiction is NOT Mr Sharma's gift and hard to understand how his editor would allow this to be published in it's current form. Forced dialogue, shallow characters, overall clumsy storytelling. (And I just read another reviewer say it's the best book he's ever read !??!!!??? He must be fairly new to reading, or otherwise have not been exposed to any skillful storytelling.)
And yet - there are some lovely, powerful ideas here. Nothing new - all of this familiar and timeless advice is available many other places - but a decent compendium of useful guidance and tips on achievement, habit development, life in general and a variety of personal growth/development ideas. This would have been a GREAT and really useful 20 page eBook guide if stripped of the shallow, repetitive, awkward storytelling.
So I guess I'll stick with my 3 star review, tho if there was a 2.5 option available, I'd have chosen that.
PS: Recently finished James Clear's "Atomic Habits" - excellent. The scope of that book is narrower than this book, but TERRIFIC habit formation and related advice.
In 2014, I read the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari. I was an attorney who had finished law school and knew I wanted to pursue something different and I did not know what. The book helped me commit to the career path I chose, in real estate (not becoming a monk), and as wild as it sounds, like the Alchemist by Coelho, instilled hope and adventure back into my imagination. My wife read The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari in one sitting at a time where she was looking to find a path and focus. Then we read The Leader Who Had No Title and in 2015 I lost 55 pounds, took on another vertical position of growth in my company, and committed to getting up at 4:30 AM each morning to run, read, and journal. Robin’s books and his material have driven my wife and I to take the risks and challenge ourselves the way we have. Was it just Robin’s content? No, and yet his books, podcasts, and YouTube videos stick out as watershed experiences on a path to creating our life by design. So much so, that I have borrowed the phrase “with love and respect” from Robin more than a few times. Business books and leadership content could all be the same and it would be boring. A step by step how to wake up at 5 AM and live your life would have been useful and very short. The truth is, like Jim Rohn said, “when enough is enough meets massive action your life will change”. The 5 AM Club tells a story that you need to see, hear, and experience. Just surrender to how wild, crazy, and silly it can be at times to think events like this could occur because when you do allow yourself to imagine that this could be you, one day it will be. Potential mentors, gurus, and masters in your life are more available than you know and when the student is ready they will appear. Robin Sharma outlines the value of getting up at 5 AM, the value of being open to opportunity and adventure, and the value of vulnerability and connection with others. The book is laced with countless business, leadership, and life lessons. It may be the most quotable piece of material from Robin yet and that is saying a lot. This is a great book, and like all of Robin’s content, a must for anyone looking to breakthrough to another level.
This is not meant to be an opus to Robin Sharma ability to write novels but more as a conduit to deliver accumulated knowledge to help people find the best of themselves
I love the book so far and am reading and listening to the audiobook
There are so many pearls of information that it is a great book that can be read over a lifetime if need be
Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention. ~ Francis Bacon
This is believe us the latter for this book
Still reading the book slowly after listening to the audiobook ... can’t stress enough the importance of reading and reflecting on his work and information
Not a novel but something else is in Mr. Sharma style that will be recognized as a great piece of literature especially for those wanting self improvement and progress on their journey
Finished audiobook and still reading the book to reinforce the ideas as well as started the 66 day app
Might be wishful thinking but can see changes in my days for the better
Nearing the end of the book and my original thoughts are still accurate
Not a great writer in the sense of novelist but if you want to read a book that will give you a chance to change your life ... I mean make it meaningful in a way only you as a person can understand then read this book and implement any or all of its suggestion and you will want to change for yourself
