Description

Legendary leadership and elite performance expert Robin Sharma introduced The 5am Club concept over twenty 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 book, 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 achievementsA 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 dayA step-by-step method to protect the quietest hours of daybreak so you have time for exercise, self-renewal and personal growthA 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.

    A good way to teach new lifestyle disciplines and habits, by using a story.
  • Good insight, horribly applied - spoiler

    I originally picked up this book not knowing it was fiction, I still continued to read it nonetheless. The overall advise within joining the 5am club is useful; However, the character development was horrible. Two of the characters, the entrepreneur and the artist, fall in love within days after meeting making their interaction and development more cringe than intriguing. There are an ungodly amount of metaphors that seem unnecessary. The advise given is overly repetitive and take 30 pages to explain with pointless verbiage to give the characters more of a “philosophical” stance; when it could easily have been explained in the sum of 2 pages. This author had amazing key points and advice to give, however the fiction format seemed to be a little much for the writer. This book would have been so much better without the fiction character development. It’s nearly impossible to get through willingly due to the highly repetitive nature, and pointless storyline. I fully believe this author could have written the book with his advise and would have had such better ratings. It isn’t easy to follow due to the lack of character development. It is hard to feel a connection to the characters- true character development doesn’t come until the last 3-4 chapters. The storyline is drawn out. The reason I’m giving three stars is because the advice that is given is useful- however, you have to search for it in the dump of verbiage and useless story line. I know Robin Sharma has amazing work, this however isn’t one of them. If you’re going to read this book I recommend reading chapter 2 and skipping to chapter 9; this is where the 5am teachings truly begin. Another thing I want to point out is that a lot of what is being taught to the entrepreneur and artist is repeated throughout the chapters in an annoying manner. I’m not a hard critic this book and the characters in the book had the potential of being better.

    The positive affirmations in this book were so good I was dancing while I read. Honestly I’m waking when the sun rises, not often at 5am. Still kind of magic
  • Work of Fiction

    I don’t care for fiction. I rarely, if ever, pick up a work of fiction, let alone enjoy it. I wish I knew what I was buying before buying. I felt like the book belittled the reader, and had too many “rah rah” moments for me to actually engage. I cringed at the “spellbinder.” Many of my hard lessons were learned from failure, and never from someone telling me I’m special. I get the sentiment, but I wish I knew what I signed up for. I would not recommend.

    Great book! Although it may be fiction, it could just as easily be fact. Read this book! Rise early, own your morning & ELEVATE YOUR LIFE!

    This book has changed my life in ways I couldn’t imagine. I’ve become a better husband, father, and have really developed my craft with aviation and video editing. Everyone needs to read this book to find that lost inspiration.

    Great book, i met someone recently who seemed to radiate this energy I couldn’t really describe as anything other than magic. And they motivated me to start working and building myself again, I read this book as a first step on that journey and I couldn’t have picked a better one as it encompassed everything that i was trying to become. I still haven’t quite joined the 5am club but I’m getting there.
