It was excellent Book. First book of Robin Sharma and I really liked it. Lots of very nice quotes. I wish this book would have been written when I got married, but it is never too late to read it. This book was recommended by a young well read mother of 2 kids and she gave it to me to read. I practice lots of recommendations in the book, however there are lots of things I will change in my life now. Everyone should read this book, it was worth my time.

It is a type of great self-help book with great ideas. Its a nice book to be presented as a gift to inspiring youngsters. The author has given his best to provide wisdom and knowledge to families through a story line. Robin Sharma indeed has a great way of representing his thoughts in a very influential way. Highly recommended for those who sincerely enjoy motivational stuff.

Специално заради тази книга си направих тетрадка, в която да записвам безценните мъдрости и съвети, които прочетох. Ръката ми омаля от писане, просто имаше толкова много, което исках да си запазя за по-нататъшен прочит, винаги когато ми потрябва вдъхновение и мотивация, да отгърна тетрадката и да се заредя положително. Не разбирам как може да има хора, които да прочетат книга като тази и да не извлекат дори и най-малка полза от нея. Ами че тя изобилства с толкова много практически съвети, лесно ...more

I couldn't have read this book in a more timely manner. As an entrepreneur that have so much to commit to both business and family, this books truly illustrates that it's possible to achieve a balance between work and family. Yes, simple yet uniquely profound methods that is a must read for all parents.

Thank you Robin, for have written a book that I believe will serve us well if we take time to understand and applies the method into our life

" Knowing exactly what you want for the future of your family protects you from all those negative influences that try and creep into our lives. When your thoughts are crystal clear and you are completely committed to your vision of your family's future, then the opinions of others mean nothing"

Thank you for your wisdom Julian

An interesting book , though it didn't match my expectation

This book is must to be read. I like about Robin is that he sticks to his fundamental knowledge/enlightenment in all his books. This book will not just help you to be better family person but also a better person in general. Simple rules, if sincerely followed will bring lot of joy in our life.

I loved the first book....The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari.....this one is just as good. Wisdom for both young and old pouring from it's pages. A book you cannot read without a pencil in hand and a book that will be read more than once and referred back to on many occasions. Highly recommended.

You don't have to be a parent to be able to read this book, as a sister who has a nine year old sister, I sometimes feel like I am raising her as well, so reading this book really opened my eyes on the wisdom of being a role model.

Sometimes it feels too much like preaching (which is not my style) but it is still inspiring and its thoughts and insights while not often groundbreaking are very useful.

A wonderful book full of awesome quotes~ my favorite, by Desiderius Erasmus 'when I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left, I buy food and clothes'.
Prasad GR
Essentially this is a repeat of the wisdom found in his other books but with a higher focus on the parenting aspect. 3 stars still because a reminder like this more than welcome!

I liked it in some parts of the book. The techniques mentioned in book are contradicted I felt. And the way it's revealed bores sometimes.
