In the conclusion , I must say that author didn't put serious efforts while writing this book . When you are popular celebrity ; you develop a tendency to RELY MORE ON MARKETING & LESS ON CRAFT . And that's what Sharma Ji did . It is an avoidable book . Amazon's format doesn't allow my to rate anything lesser than 1 ; otherwise I wanted to rate it 0.5 .

Robin Sharma has emerged as a master storyteller ever since his first book "The monk who sold his Ferrari," published way back in 1997. I read that book sometime around the year 2000. And ever since then, I have become his ardent fan. I have the entire collection of his books, and personally, I have been benefitted in every walk of my life. (I hope he does not ask for a royalty!)
Robin created a lot of buzz around this new book for the past four years, and he has lived up to the expectations. "The 5 AM Club" is not a story. It has all the lessons required to succeed in our personal, family and professional lives. Robin compels us to change for better, with his signature quote, "Change is hard at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end." He has introduced several innovative infographics to help readers understand his masterly concepts as he passionately narrates his story. There are also several cinematic twists and turns to keep the readers bound to the book. And of-course there are many of his game changing formulas. The book can easily be made into a motion picture as it follows Aaron Sorkin's 3-act structure. And now Robin has become a poet also! There are 2 - 3 beautiful poems.
Here are the three most important take-home messages for me from this brand new Robin's page-turner:
1. "Life's is too short to play small with your talents."
2. "Your excuses are seducers, your fears are liars, and your doubts are thieves."
3. "The moment when you most feel like giving up is the instant when you must find it in you to press ahead."
Robin has been my Dronacharya, and I hope this review of this Ekalavya for his book will be an apt Guru Dakshina (Royalty!).

The language is abysmal, he seems to enjoy coining new phrases and words which are just atrocious and frankly unnecessary. The number of quotes from other people that appear "on the back of a t-shirt" or written here and there is such a lazy way of padding out a book and getting a point across. Each character seems to have the memory of an elephant and can recall huge swathes of text verbatim from this famous person or that one.
Save yourself the trouble and buy "the miracle morning". It is by far a better book and essentially conveys the same points (but with an even better toolkit for when you go to sleep at night). Sorry Robin, you've seriously missed the mark with this one.
I scanned through the first few pages of the book where it goes into the story of the millionaire, spellbinder, artist and homeless person. The early part of the book was not that interesting for me. I flicked to where it got into the teachings and that’s where the book came alive for me. I’ve never underlined so much in a book!
