User reviews about this book
Great read. You can almost feel yourself evolving as a person with every flip of a page. Definitely something to share with the people I love in hopes to see them change as much as I did! Thanks Mel!
I really enjoyed this book and I’m glad I read it. But it definitely got repetitive, quick & often. What was said in 16-17 Chapters really could have been said in half of that without all the fillers and excessive testimonials. While I would definitely recommend it to a friend because it contains gems, I wish it came in a “meat and potatoes” version. And this is from an avid reader.
Not sure what the buzz is about
Mel Robbins never really got around to explaining exactly how to use the five second rule. She basically just reiterated what was sent to her by people who used the rule that they probably got from her Ted Talk or from listening to an interview she gave. I regret spending the money on the book and the time I took to read it. Pretty frustrating experience.
It Caused A "shift" In my Life
Highly recommended for anyone who can't understand why they're stuck in the minds and life.
Waste of time.

This book is a self inflating book, kinda like this whole poor me thing, then, BAM, look at me. I swear the whole book talks about what social media readers have sent in. Nothing profound.
HERE IS THE SUMMARY:
Before you do anything, count backward from 5-1 and re-think your decision again.
You welcome, I just saved you $19.
This book will change your life! Mel gives practical action steps to change your life immediately! I bought both versions of this book, that's how much I loved it! Worth every single penny!!!
The rule itself is amazing
The majority of the book seems to be a summary of people who have written in on social media about how the rule has changed their life.
All the way from Korea, taking 5 is applicable here as it is in America. Finally a formula that works. Highly recommend since taking 5 is changing everything.
How exciting to buy a book on the first day of publish.
The author know exactly what she's talking about. I love this book.
