Selfindulgent & promoting, patronising & painful

The first 3 HOURS are spent convincing himself how good he is and telling you what a profound impact this is going to have on you. Don't waste your time, hundreds of better options out there.

This book is painful to listen to!

I'm sure that this book may be helpful to some, however as someone who works in Marketing, (turns out the Author went to Marketing school also), I can't move away from the idea that this book sounds like one long sales pitch!
I could only listen to a few chapters before I had to turn it off.
The fact that he gets you to hand over your email within the first 2 chapters suggests to me that this book is unlikely to be a magic bullet, but rather a way to convince you to sign up to one of the Authors subscription offerings.
The Author continues to waffle on and on with anecdotes and stories about people he has helped and how great you can be if you're willing to put in the effort and follow his high performance strategies, I was wondering at what point he was going to throw in a free set of steak knives!
Very dissapointing.

Enjoyable and informative

Fantastic read and lots of work to do. I found it refreshing and insightful because each chapter focussed on each high performance indicator and they were put into practice. Author explained practices in simple, proactive and confident manner. I felt as if he was walking me through the process rather than ‘instructing’ me. Well worth a listen. Highly recommended.

One Long Marketing Pitch

On content:
The first hour-plus will loop around the premise of why high performance habits are key to your success followed by Mr. Burchard's case for why he's the trainer to show you how only to be followed by another exhortation of why high performance habits are key. If that sentence drove you a bit batty, imagine having to listen to one elongated intro that extends nearly two chapters. You'll get to Chapter 3, roughly 15:12, before he names the habits that comprise the set.

What might frustrate you: You're advised to take the free performance assessment. Once you run through the questionnaire, you'll be inundated with marketing emails, some of which do not include a link to unsubscribe. (Borderline violation of CAN-SPAM.) The book seems set up to accompany the questionnaire and so you find yourself in this multi-layered ad campaign for his training advisement.

(One irony: He makes a point of how one client wrote to him about how conventional assessments like Myers-Brigg and personal attributes (e.g. gender and race) don't really tell the whole story of personal potential. And yet, on the questionnaire, you'll be asked questions about your race, gender, and marital status.)

On performance:
He has a pretty good reading voice. Unfortunately, he over-performs at times, by effecting the cadence and pitch of certain clients, as with the case of Kate, a female executive (and yet not for John, a male executive). This can across a bit off-putting.

Yikes. Wayyyyyyy too much useless fluff.

I couldn't listen to one more word from this book. The first hour or two consists of him just talking about all the research he did for this, and how we might hypothetically be feeling right now. The actual habits are okay, I guess, but this book should have been less than one hour long.

GET TO THE POINT. That's definitely not one of this guy's habits.

Misleading. Author grabbing for your money.

My experience with this book was so unsatisfactory I had to write a review. 7 chapters into into the book and no realistic progression into ways of personal growth. Book was compromised of statements without explaination and a continuous infomercial about taking an online assessment which leads one to pay for courses for self-improvement. The author has a realistic agenda which is grabbing for more of your money and not caring about whether the audience is learning and growing. Do not purchase this book.

Beware of the fake reviews on this book giving 5 stars.

Excellent

I read or listen to an enormous amount of self-help, motivational, performance type books and lately I have been underwhelmed with the contact. I am an avid Tony Robbins fan and have listened to almost all of his audio books over the last 15 years so when I got audible and I sought out some new content I have been pretty disappointed as it rehashes what I've already learned. While I understand repetition is the mother of skill, I was still looking for more. Well this book does rehash some of Tony Robbins principles, what I enjoyed most was the practical to-dos at the end of each chapter. When I go through a book like this I'm really looking for tangible advice that I can put into practice at the end of each chapter in this book definitely delivers on that. It does reiterate principles I've learned from other authors but it gives a fresh perspective on them which I find helpful. Overall I would highly recommend this book is a way to restructure your outlook and daily activities in order to optimize performance. Adopt one stars I found the narration just a tad annoying… Had an unusual tempo to it. Still, it was not totally distracting from the content and I intend to listen to this book again.

Enlightening and well presented

Brandon presents a lot of interesting information in High Performance Habits, and some of his revelations are counter intuitive and fall outside the common conceptions about beneficial habits. I particularly appreciate the references he provides that direct listeners to online resources related to the written materials.

High Performance Habits is an excellent resource for every person interested in living a better, more productive, and satisfying life.

Ah-mazing for book for life

This is my first introduction to Brendon Burchard's work. I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with this research and the easy way Mr. Burchard applies it to life. His story telling makes the material even more relatable. I believe this is a book all entrepreneurs should have!

Self-promotion marketing ploy.

I bought this based on the rave reviews, but I have a theory about that. More to come shortly.

First, right off the bat this book rambles endlessly. And it doesn't simply sidestep and dance around the topic, needlessly dragging it out; its author takes the first three chapters of the book to essentially brag about himself and plug his website, encouraging the reader to sign up for a personality test that supposedly goes hand in hand with the book content. This website personality test is mentioned - I kid you not - in almost every chapter, sometimes more than once. It became very irritating very quickly.

Why did it feel particularly egregious for the author to plug his website so much? Because early on, while bragging about his successes in life, he mentions the fact that he was able to earn hundreds of thousands of dollars by being one of the first adopters of email opt-in marketing. He shows his hand at this moment, without seeming to realize it.

This is not just a book - it is a repackaged version of the 7 Habits primed to send readers to visit his website and opt in to glorified junk mail.

And here's where I circle back to the reviews. Many of these entrepreneurial email marketing salesmen will encourage those in their email chains to flood sites like Amazon and highly rate their books. I am not accusing the author of this book of having done so, but I personally find some of the reviews suspect and I have seen a recent trend of more one and two star reviews expressing similar complaints about the quality of the book and its questionable marketing tactics.

One final note on the audiobook: the author should not narrate future titles. He enunciates words in a very odd and unnerving manner, disrupting the natural flow and cadence, almost as if he pauses for a split second on certain parts of his sentences before jumping back in and sprinting to the finish line. Once I was about five hours in, between the annoying self promotion and sleazy marketing tactics and the irritating narration, I just couldn't take it any longer.
