Top critical review
30 April 2019
I've been spending a lot of time recently on a personal development mission. So like many others, I have come across a lot of sources mentioning the habits of some of the world's most successful people.
The habits Hal mentions in the book I sincerely believe are life changing and some of the most profoundly valuable changes one can make in their life.
However, the way this book is written is almost like a long blog piece that has been written countless times before by countless other people with several anecdotes/personal stories that sound highly exaggerated almost to the point of being out of a cheesy feel-good movie or TV infomercial.
The worst thing about the book is the really obnoxious claims implying as thogub it's the best book ever written and the only one that will somehow allow the reader to achieve every conceivable success imaginable just my carrying out his Miracle Morning routine for a month or two.
This book would have been so much better without the heavy publicity, the countless requests to gift the book and advertise Hal. It feels insulting to pay for a book which then seems like a glorified advert so often.
I'm committed to adopting the habits Hal espouses as do so many other self-help figures and definitely am glad I read this but feel like it could have been so much better without the brick to the face sales approach to put more money in Hal's pockets.
