What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast by Laura Vanderkam Book Summary

Mornings are a madcap time for many of us. We wake up in a haze—often after hitting snooze a few times. Then we rush around to get ready and out the door so we can officially start the day. Before we know it, hours have slipped by without us accomplishing anything beyond downing a cup of coffee, dashing off a few emails, and dishing with our coworkers around the water cooler. By the time the workday wraps up, we’re so exhausted and defeated that any motivation to accomplish something in the evening has vanished.

But according to time management expert Laura Vanderkam, mornings hold the key to taking control of our schedules. If we use them wisely, we can build habits that will allow us to lead happier, more productive lives.

Drawing on real-life anecdotes and scientific research that shows why the early hours of the day are so important, Vanderkam reveals how successful people use mornings to help them accomplish things that are often impossible to take care of later in the day. While many of us are still in bed, these folks are scoring daily victories to improve their health, careers, and personal lives without sacrificing their sanity. For instance, former PepsiCo chairman and CEO Steve Reinemund would rise at 5:00 a.m., run four miles, pray, and eat breakfast with his family before heading to work to run a Fortune 500 company.

What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast is a fun, practical guide that will inspire you to rethink your morning routine and jump-start your life before the day has even begun.

Low DensityI agree with one of the other reviewers—wondering where the rest of the book is. I've received more from magazine. I was hoping that its size would be belied by the density of its content; I was mistaken..Score: 2/5

This book tells you the obviousThere is really nothing much to this book. It pretty much tells you mornings are awesome. That's it. I just saved you 3$. Wouldn't recommend it..Score: 2/5

There's always a butt.Thank you for this book. It has helped inspire me to better use my time. It's content is terrific! The examples are great, and short reads can always go far. ... But, I felt the writing style ran on a little. If I am to give an honest review, then I must include this. I am by no means a good writer, but as a reader it felt as though there were some run on sentences or paragraphs. Thank you anyway this is my only critique..Score: 5/5

When life gets crazy this is a must readIt is easy in our fast paced demanding lives to let life get away from you. This book is a priceless reminder of keeping perspective and delegating what's important.

Common Sense RevealedI'm glad I stumbled on this book. So much of it just makes sense. Doing the important things early in the day ensures that they don't get lost in the shuffle. Great takeaways and action items..Score: 5/5

Not much contentUnfortunately, the book is thin on content. It barely manages to flesh out the introduction. The entire book may have been written before breakfast, in a single sitting. My morning is chopped up by school bus departures beginning at 6:45 am, and the book talks about creating and making use of large chunks of uninterrupted morning time. Some of us have more control over our morning schedule than others..Score: 2/5

Don’t buy itComplete waste of $2.99. Go spend it on anything but this pamphlet!!!!.Score: 1/5

MotivatingI'm inspired. Great read, worth the asking price. Some comment saying they already know what is written in this book, then why are you still searching? If you don't like the book then point out VALID reasons, stop bashing based on your own repeated failings!! Great read if you want that extra push. Many thanks to the author..Score: 5/5

This book was wonderful!!!This definitely made me realize that you can fit more in a day if you would just make that one step to get up a little earlier. And to open your mind to new opportunities. Just make a step to a new you!.Score: 5/5

Not worth the $This short read shouldn’t cost more than $1 if that. It has a nice intention, however it’s written in a manner in which college kids write when they have to meet a word count for a class essay..Score: 2/5

Motivating & Enlightening. A defibrillator for the soulThis book opened my eyes to some things that have been missing in my life, and gave me a basic blueprint for getting back to where I'd like to be. The book reminded me of the power of habits, and made me realize how many BAD habits I had allowed to consume my life. If you are struggling in your life, this book can be an excellent quick read to get you started on a new path. It was the quick shock I needed to get started..Score: 5/5

No experienceVey shallow book. The writer has no experience in what she writes about here.... All theories to the author. While the fact of all the benefits of getting up early is completely true... I just don't like to read books that are written without the authors direct experience in what they write about..Score: 1/5

A 30 minute read about obvious conceptsThis book is very short. It's more like an essay that says if you wake up early, you can exercise, hang out with your family, or work on a project. The author mentions that a few CEOs exercise at 6:00 AM and that you're too tired to work on stuff at the end of the day. Thanks for charging me $3 to tell me that in a 30 minute read. You can't see it but I just rolled my eyes..Score: 2/5

Refreshing and motivating!!It is nice to get a motivating essay (I say this because is a little over a hundred pages) for a small price. It is to the point, captivating and inspiring. 168 hours in a week, with plenty of time left over from sleep and work... what have I been doing?? I have definitely started to take advantage of my mornings as a 2013 resolution. after reading this it has given me fuel to take a closer look at long awaited tasks in my life. in other words, this author puts things in perspective. It is a quick enjoyable read (and reference) and worth the $3!.Score: 5/5
