So, you have to get up at 5 o’clock tomorrow morning? Tough, but how about this: there’s a person who gets up at 2 a.m., every day. It’s the early bird that catches the worm, and for the author, rising at this early (or perhaps very late?) hour has been the secret to changing from an ordinary housewife-and-mom to a professional simultaneous interpreter who can do everything she sets out to do. Read this book, and you too will be put under the spell of her extraordinary lifestyle.

In this follow-up to the greatly popular first book, author Edahiro offers pieces of more practical advice, from how to study English in order to become a simultaneous interpreter, to what type of alarm clock to choose in order to get up at 2 a.m., and how to educate(!) your husband in order to make him into a cooperative partner. Rise at 2 a.m., and your distant dreams will become your future life! Hugely motivating.
