Publisher's Summary

The Motivation Manifesto is a pulsing, articulate, ferocious call to claim our personal power. World-renowned high performance trainer Brendon Burchard reveals that the main motive of humankind is the pursuit of greater Personal Freedom. We desire the grand liberties of choice - time freedom, emotional freedom, social freedom, financial freedom, spiritual freedom. Only two enemies stand in our way: an external enemy, defined as the social oppression of who we are by the mediocre masses, and an internal enemy, a sort of self-oppression caused by our own doubt and fear.

The march to Personal Freedom, Burchard argues, can be won only by declaring our intent and independence, stepping into our personal power, and battling through self-doubt and the distractions of the day until full victory is won.

Recalling the revolutionist voices of the past that chose freedom over tyranny, Burchard - at times poetic yet always fierce - motivates us to free ourselves from fear and take back our lives once and for all.

What the Critics Say

"The Motivation Manifesto is a poetic and powerful call to reclaim our lives and find our own personal freedom. It's a triumphant work that transcends the title, lifting the reader from mere motivation into a soaringly purposeful and meaningful life. I love this book." (Paulo Coelho)

    What disappointed you about The Motivation Manifesto?

    Does not reflect the title, lots and lots and lots and lots of waffle . . . . .about . . .


    Has The Motivation Manifesto put you off other books in this genre?

    I just wasted 1 credit


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Great if you can't get to sleep.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Definitely disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    Should have been titled "The Personal Freedom Manifesto"

    Any additional comments?

    I've never written a review before and I bought this after hearing an interview with the author about it but was extremely disappointed. Nothing resonated with me and as far as motivational goes the only thing I feel motivated to do is write my own book on the subject!

    "pretentious nonsense"

    Written like an essay with such a strong determination to use the loftiest of language that any message is entirely lost. Grammatically it is a disaster and as an audio book it is an endurance test. It is written in the style of an address by Lincoln or Jefferson but without the quality, content or credibility.

    There's nothing in here to raise your motivation other than the strong motivation to turn this dribble off.

    "Fantastic!"

    I've already read the book, accessed the online course and now have the audio version too!
    This is book I'd recommend to anyone wanting to push themselves in the right direction. A nice approach to fundamental principles.
    Keep up the good work Brendon!
    All the best

    "Lame"

    This book just points out the obvious and doesn't use any stories or examples to back up what he's saying. At least in the first half I stopped listening half way through it wasn't worth my time but maybe the dry context could benefit someone else.

    "This is a rehash of Tony Robbins work"

    The material is OK but it is all a repeat of what I've already read from Tony Robbins. I also found his excessive repetition of key phrases so much a distraction that I had to stop and take breaks between my sessions listening to this. He uses the phrase "Let us..." about 700 times I would guess. But the material is worth having here if you haven't already read it from Robbins. It might be that a professional speaker could've made this a much better book

    "Lost interest due to narrator's delivery."

    Great content! I think this is just a book I'd rather read than listen to. I kept losing interest because his voice did not lure me in.

    Story
    "Motivational..."

    I'll never forget the first time I listened to a book by Tony Robbins. Perhaps it was Awaken the Giant Within, or something like that. It stressed me out, and I remember having this feeling of mediocrity. As if Tony wanted me to be like him – or run an IRONMAN triathlon – to be proactive and energized and buzzed-up enough.

    Tony Robbins was/is Brendon Burchard's mentor. They're friends, and it shows.

    Brendon seems to have a good heart, but I doubt his integrity when he goes down the bestseller-manipulation route. Should be no reason to do that. Borderline fake reviews of this book are plentiful on both Amazon and on Audible.

    Do I disagree with the books content?
    No, not really. It all sounds well-intended, meaningful, and to many; downright obvious. Stoic values throughout, though.

    Who should read the book?
    Anyone looking for a Motivation Manifesto. Is that you? I guess it is if you're addicted to Tony Robbin's books, and never do anything to live your dream.

    Hmm, that's not me. But at least the title of the book doesn't lie.

    Any additional comments?

    I lost interest in this book. I listen to and read a lot of books like this, but this was a lot of poetic fluff rehashing other people's topics, except they were more to the point than this author. People seem to like it, it just didn't do it for me.

    "Don't."

    Written like a poorly translated collection of Japanese motivational aphorisms that are obvious, and nowhere near as emotive as they were meant to be. Obvious content, stilted delivery, could've been abridged to about 17 mins of eye-rolling.
    Save your time & money.

    Credit to the author: he has a productivity system called The One Page Planner.
    It's so simple and brilliant, and it works; this was the reason I unfortunately bought this digital paperweight for my ears.

    Story
    "Skeptical of Positive Ratings"

    I"m generally not very cynical, but I found this book so unreadable (unlistenable) that I wonder how many of the positive reviews were from Brendon Burchard's network or the result of industry reciprocity.

    I don't believe all personal development books need to be practical and instructional, but even if the purpose is strictly motivational, there needs to be some level of substance and a discernible thought that holds the content together.

    Unless you would be inspired by listening to all of the motivational memes from the internet placed back to back for 7 hours, I would avoid this audio book.
