My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from Callista Publisher’s Club. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I don’t read many self help books these days because they often repeat the same idea in many ways and include a lot of extraneous info just to make their idea long enough to make into a book (in my opinion). 5-Minute Focus doesn’t do that, but, unfortunately, it was still a self help book that doesn’t help me.

5-Minute Focus teaches how to keep yourself focused when performing any task. It is written well, and it gives 75 exercises to help you do that. It does incorporate some meditation and exercises and some of the tips within the exercises can be helpful, but I don’t need to prepare myself to be an alert driver. And I don’t care what I do, a boring meeting won’t be less boring with tips given by anyone.

Those who haven’t learned how to de-stress or to survive tedious or boring tasks will probably benefit from 5-Minute Focus. Fortunately, it’s something I learned long ago.
