    I am not a great believer in get rich quick schemes, lose weight in 7 days, love at first sight, etc and so does this book. This book is very different from the nonsense that media fills your mind everyday. The best thing about the book is that it teaches you to work hard. There is no such thing as an overnight success. You have to work hard considerably everyday to make the compound effect work in favour of you. According to the Author, the Compound Effect is always at work. You can make it work I am not a great believer in get rich quick schemes, lose weight in 7 days, love at first sight, etc and so does this book. This book is very different from the nonsense that media fills your mind everyday. The best thing about the book is that it teaches you to work hard. There is no such thing as an overnight success. You have to work hard considerably everyday to make the compound effect work in favour of you. According to the Author, the Compound Effect is always at work. You can make it work for you or it will work against you. He gives the example of three friends. One friend tries to improve himself everyday. He spends some time with his wife, walks for half an hour everyday, cuts 125 calories less in his diet and reads motivational books everyday. The second friend does nothing and is a little bitter about life. The third friend rarely exercises, spends enormous amount of hours watching TV everyday, takes his wife for granted and has a cookie and beer everyday to enjoy life. The result after 2 and a half years: The third friend is now obese, has got health problems and loses his job and wife. The second friend remains the same and now is more bitter than before. The first friend remains trim, has a happy relationship with his wife and gets a job promotion. You can see the compound effect in action. The Author gives lots of examples like the one above. The plane analogy, the pump analogy and the steam engine analogy. It is the small things we do in life that makes the biggest of differences. You don't become obese overnight nor do you lose your wealth instantly. It is all a compound effect of bad decisions taken almost everyday over a considerable period of time. Most importantly the Author has some very practical suggestions to implement good habits and get rid of bad ones. So if you want to lose weight, what many people do, is to buy an expensive gym membership, new gym clothes and shoes to exercise. They work out intensively for an hour a day for 7 days. Then they give up disappointed with the results. Instead the Author suggests that it is better to walk 10 minutes a day and slowly increase it till it becomes a habit like brushing your teeth. In this way you will have long lasting impact for your health. The Compound effect is always in action be it finance, business, health, relationships or your spirituality. It is also important to take things slowly. Work everyday and without burning out, you will have the compound effect giving you the biggest momentum in a few years time. I am already implementing his advice in my life and feel that in taking things slowly, I am able to adopt healthier long lasting habits. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants success in life whether it is being healthy, relationship improvement or your wealth.

    Going to be honest, I'm pretty sure this book was written for me. The Compound Effect is a motivational book about what he calls - wait for it - the Compound Effect. The concept is basically to say that smaller steps over a long period of time will have a greater, more beneficial and successful effect on your life than bigger steps in a shorter period of time (that most people will not stick to). I am the type of person that gets revved up to make a change, is all-in for about a month (tops), and Going to be honest, I'm pretty sure this book was written for me.

This book gave me such a different way to view behavior modification as well as changing life-long bad habits (of which I certainly have my fair share). Reading it just before the start of the New Year gave me a lot to think about and I have put several of his suggested methods into effect already. I would highly recommend this book to basically everyone. Whether you're looking to change a behavior, a habit, build a business or even think that things may just be fine as they are, it's a great (very quick!) read that will really have you reevaluating the way you look at your life and considering even the smallest changes that may end up making all the difference in the long run.

    EDIT: Given the one star for "complete bullshit level" that I mention in the review, and some good input in the comments (thanks Mick and Sasha), I'm bumping this one up to two stars. It did have a few things (mentioned in the review) that set it apart from other books that truly deserve one star, so in retrospect I was a bit harsh when I rated this one the first time.

It did have a few things (mentioned in the review) that set it apart from other books that truly deserve one star, so in retrospect I was a bit harsh when I rated this one the first time. Beyond that, my review stands. _ _ _ _ _ What to say... Not sure where I got this one from, to be honest. Had it lying around, and decided it was a good book to practice a few new speed reading techniques on. Took a look at this one on Amazon, and I guess I agree with a lot of the reviews there. Basically, if you've never read a self-help book before, you'll find a few good pointers here.There's a foreword by Tony Robbins, and to be honest, that is the only thing that keeps this book on the honest side of things. Without that foreword, this looks like copy/paste of someone taking one or two notes while listening to Tony's Personal Power II. - The Airplane metaphor (small shifts all the time) - "My partner screwed me over, but I'm ok with it now - Build momentum and things will happen - Gratitude (ok, this is every single self-help product out there) - Stay in good physical shape - Goal setting (also every single self-help product) ...it's all here. In addition there's a "as Jim Rohn used to say" sentence every ones in a while in every chapter, and references to SUCCESS Magazine on (it feels like) every other page. Ending the book with "if this helped you in any way whatsoever, give five copies to your friends", was just a bit too much. This is a one star. The star is for: - Free templates at the end of the book, and references to free templates (for goal setting, gratitude, etc) and resources online. - The law of attraction - this was actually well explained, for once. No it's not about sitting on your ass wishing for a new sofa. You will see sofas all over the place, because you've already primed your subconscious with thoughts about a new sofa (or camera, trip somewhere, whatever gadget tickles your fancy). The law of attraction isn't anything new, but at least this part is well worth the read for someone who's been fooled by something like The Secret. As stated - if this self-help thing is new to you, give it a go if you happen to have it lying around. If you don't, there are better books out there. Everyone tries to be Tony Robbins or Stephen Covey, so why not start with them. They won't feed you a magic "you don't have to do anything but wish for shiny stuff" pill. You'll have to do the work, but they're well worth a read. I love Awaken The Giant Within and Personal Power II (TR). Seven Habits by SC is also hard to beat. Usually a one star means this is complete bullshit, but I'll give this one a genuine one star for the points mentioned above. Still, I have read way better books. Read Tony Robbins and Steven Covey for topics similar to this one (superior), and read everything from Tim Ferriss for a very concrete angle on how to make innovative changes to your life. Very few people, in my opinion, are better than Tim Ferriss on self improvement. Hope this helps.

If you tolerate your body being overweight, tired, and perpetually sick, it will be. It’s amazing how life will organize around the standards you set for yourself. Some people think they’re the victims of other people’s behavior, but in actuality, we have control over how people treat us.

    I loved the idea of The Compound Effect. It rings so true. The little decisions you make and habits you have amass into life-altering results as they're compounded over years. BUT DARREN HARDY IS INSUFFERABLE. I have never been so annoyed, nor have I ever had the displeasure of having to read quite so many pages by one quite as egotistical and self-inflating.

The little decisions you make and habits you have amass into life-altering results as they're compounded over years. BUT DARREN HARDY IS INSUFFERABLE. I have never been so annoyed, nor have I ever had the displeasure of having to read quite so many pages by one quite as egotistical and self-inflating. Not only this, but he sees himself as so superior to others. He had the audacity to recommend that you choose your friends by their bank accounts, he used the term "thunderous thighs," he praises himself for not reading newspapers (see my previous updates for Thomas Jefferson's thoughts on that subject - hint: it does not match Darren Hardy's ideas), his idea of success is ultra-rich, super-thin, inspirational to the point that strangers will thank him for sharing his advice (that was his stated goal at the end of the book). The whole book, I'd have to write myself "reality checks" in the margins when Darren Hardy got just a bit too... Darren Hardy-ish. A reminder to myself that someone's worth is not determined by how many zeroes are in their bank account, the number on the scale, or impressive names they can drop in a book that was about 130 pages too long. I also continually reminded myself that the successes Darren Hardy was describing were success to Darren Hardy, not to me. I think one of the main flaws of this book (besides having such an unlikable author) was that the definition of success was too narrow. I do not want to be a CEO. I don't care if my thighs touch. I don't ever think about having abs of steel. I'd rather not own a mansion. This is how Darren Hardy defines success throughout the book. So, to me, the book felt so shallow. Success means very different things to different people, and it is a shame the book didn't provide more examples into different kinds of success (familial, artistic, happiness, service, etc). My advice to anyone who is interested in this book: read the first chapter "The Compound Effect in Action." That gets you the main idea of the Compound Effect. The rest of the book primarily consists of mindless rambling and name dropping, with the occasional nugget of wisdom that came originally from one of those people that were name dropped. So. There's that. Actually, now that I'm thinking about it, this book would have made an excellent article. It probably shouldn't have been stretched out to a book.

    Reading these has become my equivalent of self-flagellation. It's been a really weird year. The careful schedule I thought I was creating for myself in 2016 got interrupted with . . . shitty life stuff. I took refuge in reading books on productivity and writing because I have never felt more unproductive and unanchored. I can see the glow of dawn, now. Three more months and I should be able to be settled.

    The author starts by saying to trust him because he publishes a magazine about success and so has gone over thousands of real and bogus stories and will tell you only the real stuff. Then he goes right into highlighting Dr. Oz and his notoriously non-evidence-based medical advice. No thanks.

    Darren Hardy provided to me some great insight in that we are what we have chosen to be. When you find yourself in that rut of life, all you have to do is go back and review those choices you made that brought you to this point. When I first tried to read this book, I felt overwhelmed about the information that he was providing as I was clearly in a rut. As I tried to initially read this book several months ago, I realized that it was not going to be easy to climb out of that rut and I gave up.

    There were parts of this book I liked, but other parts that I found to be complete B.S. It's meant to be motivational and on some levels it is but certain things the author suggests, I just don't believe to be feasible or realistic, at least of for me. For instance, he suggests not reading newspapers or watching the news but instead only having RSS feeds set up to filter any news relevant to your personal or professional goals. I think this would lead to a very narrow minded view of the world. H There were parts of this book I liked, but other parts that I found to be complete B.S.

    Great book for self-help fans. I needed this as it sometimes feels like we are plugging away for little return. This book reminds us that it is little efforts, repeatedly done, over time that give us an effect that compounds over time. So a choice to blog twice a week means in 3 years, you will have an online platform that's worthwhile. Or to write 2000 words a week means you have a book in a year. Or to eat less sugar every day means losing weight over the long term. This book reminds you of so Great book for self-help fans.

    Eh, nothing new to me. I thought this book would center more on money, but it didn't. It focused on life in general...habits, tenacity, and optimism. The title and subtitle definitely overstate the book's effect. It's not a horrible read, but it feels like a compilation of all the other self-help books I've read combined.

    My main takeaways: 1. Small smart choices completed consistently over time make a radical difference in one’s life. 2. Luck consists of 4 components: preparation, attitude, opportunity, and action. 3. Humans behave like automatons, rarely getting out of their comfort zones and making changes to their lives. Tracking habits gives an insight into the choices people unconsciously make every day. 4. Creating a healthy morning and evening routine helps start and finish the day strong.

    I had this exponential growth and 'the power of little things' perspective on life, I was quite confused and had a biased idea about consistency and this book helped me understand my problem. It organizes one's thoughts and orients intuition to build a better strategy and track oneself. It mostly supports 'positive knowing' rather than any poorly founded 'positive thinking', which kind of differentiates from materials stuffed with motivational speeches that lack practical principles. Okay, this I had this exponential growth and 'the power of little things' perspective on life, I was quite confused and had a biased idea about consistency and this book helped me understand my problem.

It mostly supports 'positive knowing' rather than any poorly founded 'positive thinking', which kind of differentiates from materials stuffed with motivational speeches that lack practical principles. Okay, this one contains some fictionalized self-help too, it's going to suggest you to write 40 pages describing your future partner and assure you you're going to attract that into your life. But It emphasizes in general on the importance of clarity about what we want. Although the law of attraction for me is only half the equation, the reference was quite fair overall in this book. "We are bombarded with billions of sensory bites of information each day. To keep ourselves from going insane we ignore 99.9% of them, only really hearing or experiencing those upon which our mind focuses, when you think something it appears you are miraculously drawing it into your life" This is the key secret of fulfillment, choosing and determining the 0.01% of sensory bites that matter to you and which you can only focus on, that worth discounting all the 99.9% of the rest of the world for, to be aware and conscious rather than sleepwalking what's left of your life through poor choices thrown everywhere to nowhere, because if you don't chose, life is not going to take permission to chose for you. This book gives an insight about how to do that with -confidence- because one will know exactly why they're doing it and why it works.

    I can totally get behind the concept of using the power of compounding to create valuable changes in your life, especially with regard to tracking – spending, habits, changes. You have to know what you’re doing to know what you want to change, and you have to know the effects of the changes you’re making in order to see a difference.

But in general, this book sort of left me bored – the examples aren’t specific enough and are too simple for anyone who’s ever read any kind of self-help or inspirational book before. As with any book that attempts to help you solve all your problems (finances, relationships, self-esteem, physical fitness, eating habits, etc), the advice becomes so generic as to be nearly useless. Yes, we all KNOW that we should be saving money/working out/eating right – and we even know HOW to do all those things – but we need to be motivated. In my opinion, The Compound Effect did not provide that motivation. The Compound Effect fits right in to the lifestyle design genre that’s pretty hot right now (think The Four Hour Work Week, or even Getting Things Done) and it’s a good introduction to those types of books – if that’s what you’re looking for. I sort of gave up on lifestyle design a while ago, deciding that I’d rather be happy than productive. :)

    Excellent book. This is not a motivational book, it's an actional book. I have really noticed major gains in my time and in my steps towards achieving my goals since I allowed myself to listen to Darren Hardy on YouTube.. and to think I almost turned it off! This book also helped me clearly define my goals and why I want to achieve them Darren Hardy is a great mentor. Get this book if you are serious about growing and becoming better.

And we aren't just talking about how to be more successful in a job or make more money, but how to have a more meaningful relationship with a loved one, how to get over bad habits, and a lot of really applicable stuff to everyday life. Read it!

    This was a quick read for me that didn't really tell me anything new. I mainly used it as a motivational boost to get back into my good habits (that I led slide during the dark months). It mainly reminded me of all the good strategies and habits I already use and have. So I got out of it what I wanted. Nevertheless I think this book can be good for people starting out on the journey of tweaking their lives.

I think this can be summed up as "be aware of what you do" and "small changes have big effects". I didn't care about the aim for material wealth and using competition as a motivation, but that is just because that doesn't work for me. If it's what you are looking for give this a go. It does have valuable tips and strategies.

    Excellent book with some great insight on the self-development discipline. Not everything original though, still worth a read if you are into motivational and peak performance literature.

At times, even simple small steps towards the difference will have ripple effect and changes the entire behavior towards the goal. Simplicity is the key of compound effect and its results are intangible but powerful which brings massive differences in results. To see the results of compound effect, one should keep working consistently and efficiently. Choices plays the key role in every results. Every choice that we make initiates a behavior and as the timeline goes on, it becomes a habit. The formulae for luck is a combination of preparation along with attitude and opportunity and all these when put in action. Tracking your progress towards anything will help you to understand the pattern of your choice and your behavior towards it and helps analyze it on regular basis to change the pattern to toggle it towards the success path. Practice makes a man perfect. In order to bring in effective actions as positive habits, you need to have consistent actions towards your choices. Sticking to the core values and taking efforts to put it in action are the important steps in redirecting your life towards the success path. Set the goal, keep tracking on your progress. Let there be a routine of good habits and disciplines and following these routines everyday with consistency will make us powerful and exceptional from others. Anything that motivates self, needs the same to be put in action. Without action, they lead us to self delusion. I really like this book a lot as the author had covered most of the principles with real time examples, keeping them short and sweet.

    The start is a bit boring and repetitive The same simple idea is decorated differently and fed into first chapters There are some brilliant ideas as the Big Mo or building routines which seem pretty useful and practical Having read 'the power of habit ' and 'outliers' u can find conflicts in how habits and routines r introduced or whether success is all about hard work Trying to fit the ideas into formulas may bother the reader more personally i found it mechanical and preferred leaving the reade The start is a bit boring and repetitive The same simple idea is decorated differently and fed into first chapters There are some brilliant ideas as the Big Mo or building routines which seem pretty useful and practical Having read 'the power of habit ' and 'outliers' u can find conflicts in how habits and routines r introduced or whether success is all about hard work Trying to fit the ideas into formulas may bother the reader more personally i found it mechanical and preferred leaving the reader with how they r used in practice What amazed me the most is chapter five and really instructive pieces of advice he gives when it comes to ur environment ur friends and those u mostly spend time with As mentioned in the last chapter this is not about motivation it is about making a difference

    The book lives up to its title and will definitely give you a jump start in your life, if you start applying the easy to follow principles mentioned in the book. The topics touched upon and discussed by the author are very relatable and vividly explained.

The principle of compound effect may appear to be very simple at first and we have known it since times immemorial but we will reap the benefits only when we start applying this principle in our day to day activities. I can vouch for the effectiveness of this principle from my personal experience, as I have seen the compound effect in action, displaying its magical and profound impact in several areas, in which I wanted to make progress. A huge shoutout to the author Darren Hardy for writing this book, which really makes an impact in the readers life.

    I love how the simplest ideas can have such a profound effect. This book is full of simple tips, but the implications of them are profound. I hope after reading this book I will be more mindful of what I am "compounding" in my life.

    The Compound Effect is a book on a very specific but important concept which applies to everything we do. Being successful is not an overnight glamorous event but rather a combination of small, shaky steps compounding to unbelievable achievements. The book illustrates this idea with interesting examples and engaging stories. The author is really motivational and the tonne of the book is uplifting. While I agree with the overall sentiment, sometimes I felt like I am listening to an ad for Success The Compound Effect is a book on a very specific but important concept which applies to everything we do.

While I agree with the overall sentiment, sometimes I felt like I am listening to an ad for Success Magazine or his audio recording company, not to mention his prompt to give copies of the book to your friends. At points, the author was rambling in order to add a few more pages to the final product. It's not a bad book but not great either.

    Read on the suggestion of an executive coach and surprised myself by liking this as much as I did. I think if you went into it with the attitude that the book is much like a coach in written form you might like it too. Another book about the power of habit and routine but with its own flavor of attitude, inspirational anecdata, and good advice. The book comes with a set of templates for analyzing ones life as well.

It’s a hard-work over time with the right direction produces compound investment curves type book.
