Skip the First 3 Chapters

If you're even going to attempt to get through this book, skip the first 3 chapters entirely - and then be prepared to skip through big pieces and parts throughout.

The content you want and need is in there, and he has some great insights - but they are hidden between mountains of useless and repetitive information.

Brandon hasn't quite realized yet that unless you're writing an autobiography, the book is not about you. He spends the first three chapters just telling you how marvelous he is and how many people he's worked with and how many bajillion people watch his videos and subscribe to his stuff. He also spends tons of time talking about these "high performers" they've researched and talked to, and gives you a bunch of statistics about them and how great they are. Eventually you start thinking, "Isn't this book supposed to be for me?"

As previously mentioned, there are some great parts with exceptional insights - and I kept wishing for the "Cliff Notes" to download so I could get through the incredible amount of "fluff" (as other reviewers have mentioned). Brandon doesn't seem to have developed a way to bring variety to the way he presents information and concepts. Throughout the book, the structure is the same, with the introduction of an idea, telling you how high performers do it, a few fluff stories, a whole bunch of "me, me, me" stories and examples, and a couple of bullet lists of thoughts or ideas which you could have found on a blog anywhere else.

Brandon, if you or any of your staff read this... keep in mind that people want meat and potatoes (unless they're vegetarians). Don't talk about how great meat and potatoes are, don't talk about how you and other people have meat and potatoes and others don't, don't talk about the statistics of meat and potato eaters compared to non-meat and potato eaters - and especially don't talk endlessly about how you eat your meat and potatoes and how many athletes, celebrities, CEO's and others have eaten meat and potatoes with you.

Talk to the reader, identify with us. Talk to the people that have had meat and potatoes in the past but no longer do, and exactly how they can have them again. Talk to the people that desperately dream of meat and potatoes, and give them the exact plan and the motivation to do that.

There is a bad, bad trend happening in the self-help book world which I am finding simply because of the amount of books I like to read and listen to. That trend is the authors thinking that if they impress us with how great they are, and tell us over and over again how they think and how they do things and how they are successful - without connecting the dots to the listener - that somehow we'll like the book because we the paupers and they are the kings. (Noone wants to disagree with the King, right?)

In the end, the listener doesn't care about you... we care about us. When you align your content and book to focus more on us and less on you - you'll find even greater success than you're currently bragging about.

Brandon, do yourself a favor and listen to or read anything by Brené Brown - sure, we get to know about her - but in a true and authentic way. Brené doesn't talk to her readers from a perspective of "I am here and you are there," which Brandon does FAR too much... she talks to her readers from a perspective of "I'm you, and you're me, and we're right here together."

I really admire Brandon and consider him a mentor from the standpoint of wanting to do and accomplish many of the things he has done. Again, I REALLY DO like the content and I think it's useful, so you'll still get a lot out of the book. But he could deliver the content in a much, much better way and build a true connection with his audience.

One Long Marketing Pitch

On content:
The first hour-plus will loop around the premise of why high performance habits are key to your success followed by Mr. Burchard's case for why he's the trainer to show you how only to be followed by another exhortation of why high performance habits are key. If that sentence drove you a bit batty, imagine having to listen to one elongated intro that extends nearly two chapters. You'll get to Chapter 3, roughly 15:12, before he names the habits that comprise the set.

What might frustrate you: You're advised to take the free performance assessment. Once you run through the questionnaire, you'll be inundated with marketing emails, some of which do not include a link to unsubscribe. (Borderline violation of CAN-SPAM.) The book seems set up to accompany the questionnaire and so you find yourself in this multi-layered ad campaign for his training advisement.

(One irony: He makes a point of how one client wrote to him about how conventional assessments like Myers-Brigg and personal attributes (e.g. gender and race) don't really tell the whole story of personal potential. And yet, on the questionnaire, you'll be asked questions about your race, gender, and marital status.)

On performance:
He has a pretty good reading voice. Unfortunately, he over-performs at times, by effecting the cadence and pitch of certain clients, as with the case of Kate, a female executive (and yet not for John, a male executive). This can across a bit off-putting.

Yikes. Wayyyyyyy too much useless fluff.

I couldn't listen to one more word from this book. The first hour or two consists of him just talking about all the research he did for this, and how we might hypothetically be feeling right now. The actual habits are okay, I guess, but this book should have been less than one hour long.

GET TO THE POINT. That's definitely not one of this guy's habits.

Misleading. Author grabbing for your money.

My experience with this book was so unsatisfactory I had to write a review. 7 chapters into into the book and no realistic progression into ways of personal growth. Book was compromised of statements without explaination and a continuous infomercial about taking an online assessment which leads one to pay for courses for self-improvement. The author has a realistic agenda which is grabbing for more of your money and not caring about whether the audience is learning and growing. Do not purchase this book.

Beware of the fake reviews on this book giving 5 stars.

What sells this book is the title! Nothing else.

The irony of this book is that it asks you to be high performance person by trying to waste more than 10 hours of your time.

After listening to it for about 1 hour at an accelerated speed, I got nothing from the word salad and began to suspect it was a scam that someone who never made any success before, but becomes successful(i.e. make money) by teaching others how to success.

Luckily, other people had very good comment on this book. So go find a summary and read it to get an idea. Don't waste your time on the whole thing.

This is like the author trying to teach you a recipe that can be finished in 15 minutes. But the author spend 10+ hours telling you how good the recipe is.

DON‘T BUY! IT‘S A MARKETING TRAP!

I really like to read non-fiction book and care about ‚high performance’ so I thought I‘d give it a shot. I wish I would have read the reviews properly in advance! The whole book only serves one single purpose: to promote the author and get you on his website to buy more paid content and sign up for newsletters. He wastes chapter after chapter after chapter with fluff and constantly brags about himself without getting to any point and has very - very little original information that isn‘t in one of the all-time classics of the genre.
Completely annoying voice to top it of.
Stop wasting readers‘ time!
Readers: DO NOT BUY IT! WASTE OF TIME!

very good book. a lot of useful information.

what I lived about this book was that the advice was very practical and could be applied right way unlike many other books in this genre. It felt like I was taking a course on high performance. I loved that even in audiobook format I got the same sense if structure that you get in an actual physical books. I can recall the different sections and actually listen to this again like I would re read a book. I got real real strategies for real poeple. It went in depth and author provides resources (like worksheets etc) to be able to apply the strategies right away.

Good advice, too much drama and ego

Good content, but too much self praise and overly dramatic narrations. Recommend getting the summary

Dünner input für die spieldauer, einige neue Punkt

Einige wesentliche Punkte hätten mehr herausgehoben werden können, Sprecher wird auf Dauer anstrengend, viel indirekte und direkte Werbung für das eigene Unternehmen

Selbstbeweihräucherung.

Die Erstfassung sei über 1400 Seiten gewesen. Das kann ich mir vorstellen. Die Kürzung war nicht gründlich genug. Vor allem geht es hier um Selbstbeweihräucherung in wiederholter Form. Bis dann endlich mal ein halbwegs konkreter Gedanke kommt, muss man sich durch 3 Kapitel Was-ich-alles-tolles-gemacht-habe-blabla kämpfen. Sein Erfolg gibt ihm wohl recht, und ich kann mir vorstellen, dass viele davon motiviert werden.

Extremely repetitive and many empty words

I’ve listened to the first 1,5 hours of this audiobook and the author is basically just repeating the same things, just talking about how great his studies are without talking about any advice or result of his studies.

The best book on self development I've read so far

Brendon Burchard is positivity-bomb! This book is filled with positive techniques and habits to better succeed in life and on the daily job. The book definitely motivated me and gave me positive energy. Absolutely recommend!

just relentless fluff and self-marketing

I regret getting this book. The only one this book serves is the author himself and his need to establish himself as an expert but stating how many followers he has and his need for selling his courses to you. Waste of money and time.

ebook read by ebook writer

based on the synopsis I expected more of a scientific foundation and background. I was disappointed. This book sounds like a YouTube life coach who peddles his wares to make maximum money off people who believe he can help them perform better because he himself has'performed well' in getting their money.
