Book Review
My take on the book
Overall Rating
Readability Score
Picked this one up at the airport before a flight. First book by Robin Sharma I read. I found the book interesting, but I found it hard to follow the characters and story of the book. It has some great lessons in it, and the concept of starting your day at 5am with a fixed routine does make a lot of sense. I'm trying more and more to start my day with a great routine (even from before this book) so this just confirmed I was on the right track. BUT to be honest I had to grind through it till the end and therefore not my best ever read!
Overall rating of book out of 5:
