It was well written and I have no real complaints other than the title being misleading. It wasn't a guide at all. It was humorous but not very instructive.
Also it led me to inadvertent irony in action - I stayed up late reading this book and ended up oversleeping the next day.
There isn't enough new - I'm familiar with the time management strategy of "do the important things first, to make sure they get done."
There isn't enough substance - I had burned through 60 percent of this "book" in about an hour.
There isn't enough background - how and why did the successful people referenced in the book develop their morning routines? Tell me more about who they are?
The good thing is I got this review done before breakfast. Maybe I'll write a pamphlet next, and call it a book.
Now, let me share my own proclivities: I am not and never have been a "morning person." I tend to be more of a night owl and do some of my best work in the evening hours. Vanderkam references the differences inherent in what she calls night owls (a camp she identifies with) and larks (those who more naturally rise before dawn). But she also points out that most of fall in between these two dichotomies. My own morning routines tend to revolve around rising so that I have just enough time to do what I HAVE to do: coffee, hygiene, coffee, kids, transportation, coffee, get to meetings/work. Reading this book revealed thoughts about not only how others have found success through rising earlier (not news) but why this is so and specifically how we might apply some of these disciplines to our own lives. I found this level of detail refreshing, and liked her honest approach to habit formation (clue: it is NOT just a matter of willpower).
In all, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and, more importantly, have started to actively apply many of its recommendations and precepts into my daily life. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to make time for the important, not just urgent, things in their lives.
