It's a great tool. 54321 GO! It really does hijack your brain momentarily and get you moving.
However, the book is FULL of fluff. Her reading feedback from her fans about how they've used the '5 second rule' to make changes, over and over and over and over and over again is not my idea of a 'book'. It's a 'Ra Ra' rally and a waste of my time. In the end I found it annoying. The tool however does work to defeat procrastination. You can probably find a blog post or a TEDx talk somewhere that will give you all you need.

After the first five minutes you don't need to continue. The rest is just examples to support this idea. I feel I wasted my credit this month

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Needed to move through the points more quickly and make this book MUCH shorter.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
Very American in style
Any additional comments?
The concept is simple, count down from 5 and act. It is a good concept and its useful to know the science behind it, but dragged out far too long for my liking; 7 hours! No doubt others will like this book and enjoy the emotional aspect with the examples of people putting this into practice. But from the perspective of looking for new ideas for personal development there is far too much unnecessary content. It could have been an hour or less.I would recommend this book for the concept and nothing more.

Ok to listen to, narrated well. However there is only so many times you can listen to the same stories..."This person struggled...they counted 5,4,3,2,1 and changed their lives."

While the context of this book is quite good and I have found the actual 5 Second Rule to be somewhat helpful, the length of this recording is way too long.
The author has repeated the same stories over and over like some sort of affirmation or ritual. 1 hour would have repetitive.

A great tool but seriously not a 20 chapter book. I listened for 11 chapters hoping it would shed some light then telling the same storyline 30 different ways.
