Publisher's Summary

Legendary leadership and elite performance expert Robin Sharma introduced The 5am Club concept more than 20 years ago, based on a revolutionary morning routine that has helped his clients maximize their productivity, activate their best health and bulletproof their serenity in this age of overwhelming complexity.

Now, in this life-changing guide, handcrafted by the author over a rigorous four-year period, you will discover the early-rising habit that has helped so many accomplish epic results while upgrading their happiness, helpfulness, and feelings of aliveness.

Through an enchanting - and often amusing - story about two struggling strangers who meet an eccentric tycoon who becomes their secret mentor, The 5am Club will walk you through:

  • How great geniuses, business titans and the world’s wisest people start their mornings to produce astonishing achievements
  • A little-known formula you can use instantly to wake up early feeling inspired, focused, and flooded with a fiery drive to get the most out of each day
  • A step-by-step method to protect the quietest hours of daybreak so you have time for exercise, self-renewal, and personal growth
  • A neuroscience-based practice proven to help make it easy to rise while most people are sleeping, giving you precious time for yourself to think, express your creativity, and begin the day peacefully instead of being rushed
  • “Insider-only” tactics to defend your gifts, talents, and dreams against digital distraction and trivial diversions so you enjoy fortune, influence, and a magnificent impact on the world

Part manifesto for mastery, part playbook for genius-grade productivity and part companion for a life lived beautifully, The 5am Club is a work that will transform your life. Forever.

An absolute waste of time!!

I’m a veteran of many many business and leadership books and this is by far the worst one I’ve ever encountered.
1. The audio performance is quite literally annoying. Just give the sample a listen and you will hear what I mean.
2. The entire book can be summed up in a couple of sentences and reading the entire book fails to add much of anything substantive to it. I’ll save you the bother of reading the book. Get up early, spend time working on your health, mental, spiritual, and emotional self before you let the day run away on you. Do some thing to move your life and business forward in the direction you want the to go. Consistent, daily small efforts will yield big rewards over time.
3. Lastly this is some of the poorest quality writing I’ve never encountered. Overly simplistic, repetitive, pedantic, and punctilious.

I suffered through the whole book, shocked at it’s lack or original ideas. Like a train wreck I simply could not look away. I kept waiting for the big reveal; only to get to the end and simply wish I had not wasted my time. Perhaps this review will help you avoid wasting your time like I did with mine.

Super disappointed

Solid principles buried under contrived and cringe-worthy storytelling. What had the great bones to a worthy self-betterment book is completely obscured by trite characters and self-important prose that seem to be more written to make the author feel like a wannabe Hemingway than a self improvement guru. If he would have written this in his own voice I would have really liked it. As it is written, I struggled through 4 chapters with the hope that the gag inducing cliche characters were just a hook to give way to first person prose but I was very disappointed. Save your money and time and skip this one.

a treasure

I loved it and even though some of the concepts were not new, the way they were presented made them easier to understand and relate to.
the story gave it a lighter air. every word is a lesson on it's own.

A guide to live at your fullest

Once again Robin surprises me with this very practical for life advises that he tells as a story. It is very clear that he has studied success as a duplicatable science and wants a better world. It is one of the most practical books I’ve known for improving any life.

Highly Recommended

Such a great story and information. Feeling empowered to focus on self-mastery. Truly feel if I focus on myself, I’ll be able to achieve anything. Highly recommend this book for anyone who’s looking for a way to improve their life regardless of where they are right now.

started well, struggled from halfway

I felt there was a hugh amount of dialogue to cover the same message. started well with great nuggets of info to make you think. but after they travel to Mauritius it looses itself, and gets very corny.

Style is a matter of taste. I loved it

The reading style in my opinion was very good. I like the different voices for the three main characters, I do understand how the above reviewer may have an issue with the difficult to listen to part, it I think that’s just the character - it didn’t bother me at all and I do highly recommend you listen to this book. I start getting up at 5am since I listen to the first chapter and that’s the whole point. This book is a game changer

Amazing book.

I loved this book. It so nicely goes through the personal development subject. It is not only about getting up at 5:00am, it is so much more!
