    Stop what you're doing and read/listen to this book! It's a game-changer. It's paradigm-shifting. Yes, those are dramatic words, but it really is. I'm a therapist and a self-help junkie, so I've got a lot of things to compare it to. I've been using this technique and telling my clients...

    Short, little repetitive, but totally motivating! Worth a reread when my mojo is dead. ...

    Very very repetitive, and I ended up speeding the audio to 2x for the last half. She could have given the same information in 1/10 of the time. I like the idea of the principle, it's just overly elaborated upon. I will try it out though and see if it helps with a few things, especially...

    I should have 5-4-3-2-1 and put the book in the trash, but I didn't. I finished this stupid book that is basically a long infomercial about nothing. Just watch the TED talk. Or don't. There's not much here. ...

    Overall I found this book to be a useful extension of the author's TEDx talk, but if you didn't read it, the talk would probably do you fine, if you watched it a couple times to internalize the ideas. That all said, the book could have used some different/better editing. There were...

    This book is incredible. I don't have a lot of issues getting motivated, but we all get comfortable in our own ways. I'm so motivated and it's incredible how MOVED my body feels by the simple act of counting down from 5. I'm blown away! ...

    This was an odd book. I cannot even imagine the author actually writing it. It sounds like she started speaking into a recorder without much of a plan and Voila! a book. While I can see some value in the concept, it would make a nice long article, or even a short one, rather than a who...

    If you don?t want to do something you should ?like get out of bed? countdown 54321 and do it. Summary of this book. It?s a helpful little tip and she included some interesting science that supports why it works but the rest of the book feels unnecessary or is clouded in her ...

    The concept this book describes is great: Countdown and act on what you know you need to do immediately, rather than storing it in your internal to-do list that may never get done. The book itself could've been an article -- and the author's TED talk on it does the job just as well. ...

    I honestly can't think of a book that I have hated more than this book in quite some time. I listened to the audio version, and first off, the author is a horrible narrator. Her voice was like sandpaper to my ears. Secondly, I kept thinking of what the conversation with her publisher m...

    This is definitely a great one, its concept is very sipmle. In this book, Mel Robbins explains the simple way of the 5 second rule and shares some stories of people who applied it and witnessed the change it brought. There's no overwhelming motivation in here, the book only makes you ...

    Mel Robbins book has way too many testimonials. It goes in circles. Entire sections should be cut out. And you absolutely positively must read it. I get the idea Mel Robbins was rushed to make this book after her wildly successful Ted Talk, and it's a prime example of why nonfictio...

    I witness people denying themselves the opportunity to try hard things EVERY DAY. Waiting for motivation. Waiting until the "time is right". Not feeling ready and thus not even giving something hard a try. And yet, there is a desire TO DO THE HARD THINGS. Takes 5 seconds and ACTION. Wh...

    Loved it. It is so simple and yet we do not use this rule which can change our lives for the better. Anyone who has seen Mel's Ted Talk, they would really want to read this book. ...

    Just watch her TED talk on youtube, that will sum up all the things she said in this book. Quite a waste of a time to read this while you can just grasp what the 5 second rule is in 10 mins. Somehow the rule did work for me, but not really that life changing, as you need a bigger pictu...

    I highly recommend the audiobook! It?s like Mel Robbins right beside you coaching you along! Can?t even tell she?s reading her book! I had read the book last year when it came out but didn?t get much out of it because my brother died about the same time. This book has been a on...

    I loved Mel Robbins's various talks and interviews. She's an incredible presenter and storyteller, but the book is a blog article stretched into short book-form. Here's the entire content in one sentence: if you have the impulse to act, count 5-4-3-2-1, and do it before your brain int...

    As an idea and a 'science' the 5second rule is great - but as a book it's pretty atrocious. The book spends way to much of its time trying to sell you a product that you already bought! It keeps self congratulating itself on how brilliant it is, and how many people it has helped with h...

    Simple solid advice. Nothing revolutionary here, more like common sense. Sometimes a person just needs to hear things out loud and that's what this book does. Basically reminds you to KISS keep it simple stupid. Act on things rather than over think them and you'll get farther in life. ...

    The Power of Counting Down Seth Godin says that he can read for a certain amount of time before "he gets the joke," or the gist of the book. The gist of this book is counting down and acting is the key to everything. The concept is a good idea, but not worth the money paid for th...

    The subtitle of the hardback contains the words 'surprisingly simple'. And it is. Unfortunately, this is one of those books that seeks to blow up a small and simple subject into an overwritten ATM. My gut feel is that the main problem the book addresses is that the author didn't manage...

    Abandoned! The 5 Second rule is a great idea, but this book was far from it. If you've not watched any of Mel Robbins' speaking videos (especially the TED Talk & Inside Quest interview) then you can find something halfway useful in this book. If you have, then this is nothi...

    Did I find her advice really useful? Not really. If I had to answer on the spot I'd say Mel Robbins comes from a good place but her suggestions are oversimplified and thinly based on science. And the book was very repetitive. But I did find her narration comforting, I consumed it in au...

    I purchased this book because I was hopeful it would give me some tools to make decisions faster. Instead, The 5 Second Rule read like an elaborate advertisement. Pages and pages of testimonials of how the 5 Second Rule changed peoples lives. The reader is left to wonder how. The id...

    Sorry but I can?t recommend this one. It felt overly repetitive, and the testimonials were of no interest to me. I originally gave it a three, but I?m downgrading it to 2.5 because the only thing I?ve retained is that you must make the decision to act in the first five seconds. ...

    It works if you work it... Life altering! Mel really nailed this... I've read countless self-help and motivation books, I never would have thought something so seemingly simple would change things in my life this quickly. She's right... motivation is crap, I rarely "feel" like doing...

    Great theory and full of fluff. I love the concept of this book. However, it's a very simple idea that was crazy fluffed. Count down from 5 and do something to help you reach your goals. There were tons of testimonials and personal stories, while they drove home the authors points, ...
