Really drags out a very simple concept.

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.

What made the experience of listening to The 5 Second Rule the most enjoyable?

This is the best book I have ever purchased, and I have purchased hundreds.
In my opinion, until you read, and "get" this simple concept, you'll spend a fortune seeking it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lots of them, and mostly ordinary people.

Have you listened to any of Mel Robbins’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Nope, Mel is completely new to me. Mores the pity.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me wish I'd found her way back.

Any additional comments?

My review is genuine, and for once I felt compelled to write one. It's a great book.
