It was a brilliant experience reading this book and I am, in fact, overwhelmed and stupefied by the amazing ideology of the author. The highly germane usage of quotes and shibboleths accentuates the essence of the thought process which the author is trying to impart. If each and every conscious individual adapts the ideology expressed in this book, then the world will truly become a paradise. If you are an individual who feels that he/she has a decent level of conscience, humility and intellect, ...more
Wonderful book.Extremely wise and helpful for ones self awakening.
Life is a treasure and you are more than you think you are. Embrace things that happen with open heart and you will grow better, wiser, stronger. Give the new day most of it as if it will be your last and treat others with kindness, love and respect as if you will never see them again.
My dad gave me this book because of his devotion to it and his awareness of my belief that one should not follow the norm. I honestly did not plan to read the book for a while, but I went ahead and read it for my dad for his Father's Day present. I find it very hard to relate to the book and that for one to get something out of it, one must be religious, believe in determinism, and be more or less idealistic. I am essentially none of these things. I found some of the lessons in the book enlighte ...more

As we all are familiar with the "Monk who sold his Ferrari", well, this book is a continuation of that. In this book, Robin Sharma makes the reader to think out of the box, The reader is made to be aware of his own life and talents rather than being saddened and depressed.

This chosen one(person) in this book is lead by a Master who is no other than the Monk who sold his Ferrari. He enlightens the chosen one on how to lead a disciplined and a happier life. The reader is made aware of how once cou

I read this in Bali when i felt lost and wondered into a book shop searching for something to inspire me. I found it-this book. I no longer question myself nor my lifes purpose, this truly is a superb thought provoking read. The hardest thing is actually deciding it is for you, the rest is easy.

Really good book with a lot of lessons. Lots of material packed in here, and I love Julian's character as he is a real life example of what being your "best-self" looks like. A little preachy and conjectural, but overall a good read.

Take home lessons:

1) Life is a balance of making things happen and letting things happen. The analogy used in the book is that of a tennis match. In tennis all that you can do is hit your best shot when it comes your way, but once the ball is on the other side, the
After finish reading this, I am writing my own obituary in my blog. Great book and easy to understand and remember!
Ahmad Gamal
This is what the whole book is about, the fable.
The garden, the lighthouse, the sumo wrestler, the pink wire cable, the shiny watch, the fragrance of flowers, and finally the path of diamonds.

You are sitting in the middle of a magnificent, lush, green garden. This garden is filled with the most spectacular flowers you have ever seen. The environment is supremely tranquil and silent. Savor the sensual delights of this garden and feel as if you have all the time in the world to enjoy this natural

I read this in 2008. I couldn't remember anything from this book.:D except for this excerpt that I came across from my blog.

''The whole reason we are alive is to grow into our greatest selves and rememebr the truth about who we fundamentaly are. Life will suport you perfectly in this quest.

You will be sent people,events and trials that will invite you to reveal more of your brilliance and discover more of your possibilities.

Often, our lessons will not come easily. Suffering has always been a veh
“The monk who sold his Ferrari” is a tale, which provides an approach to living a simple life with greater balance, strength, courage and abundance of joy. The fable format is a refreshing change from the tiresome listing of all the good things we could do for ourselves but do not. It makes the message being conveyed linger in our minds. Although most of the principles dealt with can be found in countless other books on self-help and spirituality, there is a difference in the way of Sharma has p ...more

Quoting from the book itself " Within your heart all answers lie, walk towards your fear and then you'll learn to fly". Fortunately i got a chance to read this book. It was an experience in itself to read it. Its been a long time now when i read the book. But some of the values the book taught are unforgettable.The 7 stages of self awakening which i came across was something every one of us should try to bring into our life. Two of my best messages from this book i would like to share with you a ...more

your appreciation for the book depends on your experience in life, in which phase you are currently .
i think it is an interestig book .. does not offer much comparing with other self devloppement books but i loved the quotes inside it .. very brilliant choice.
another point is .. i did not actually understand why making a story and a conversation as long as Dar agrees on what ever julian says without any doubts or discussions !
overall i enjoyed reading the book
Sanika Pandit
I laughed. I cried. This book is so amazing that i don't have words to describe it. I just feel that it was a very good decision to read this book. At the start i thought it might be just another book full of philosophical crap which doesn't apply to our real life. This book proved me wrong and i am really glad that it did.
With simple rules,without feeling guilty,it provides to change the perception of life of yours,so it doesn't make you feel under pressure to be happy like the other self-help books.Personally,i always find the self-help books as false-hope tools with a commercial intentions.But i found this book pretty honest and really helpful.I just wished it would focused on self-love,self-acceptance matters more anyway it helped me to change my prejudge-mental thoughts about humanity a bit and it's enough fo ...more
Sometimes in life we feel left out, insecure, and completely lost. We don't know how to proceed further. We doubt our self, doubt our own ability and doubt our decisions. During those time we pray to God but no one ever heard him back. Even our family members, our friends couldn't understand the worst situation we are facing. If YOU whoever reading this review facing such a situation please do read this book. Recommend this to your friends.

a good way of suggesting a life changing measures by telling a story. Wonderful writing skills but i found it less appealing than the monk who sold his ferrari.
Must read.. Inspirational nd techniques are very practical and easy to apply

was a gift from a friend.. and i am really glad it came my way. Now I am so eager to pass it on to all my frienda. It is a life changing book, not so artistic from the literary prespective but extremely profound, and helpful. it is more of a guide on how to plan your life, find what is it that you love to do most and set your goals to be in harmony with your beliefs. it helps you work on your weaknesses and love yourself and is an amazing energy booster. Read it.. it is a real life changing book ...more

Awalnya iseng2 baca pas lagi nunggu si Mas Gramed nyariin buku yang mo gua beli, berhubung ada yang terbuka jadilah gua anteng baca di tempat selama si Mas-nya belon balik.

Eehh.. dari kalimat pembukaannya aja kok gua berasa hati gua berdesir ketika membaca rentetan kata2nya, jadilah nih buku gua beli, huahahaha :D

And overall nih buku emang baguss!!

Ceritanya lebih ke arah spiritual githu dhee ^o^

This book was a good read but not as much as praised by others. This book was just a concoction of stereotypical lines which at places were looking good but relating to them everytime was quite a thing for me. I may sound nonchalant to philosophical things what they say but I read it like many other books on the way of living life but this one had the soul out of the world which I can't relate.
Carried on from where he left off in The Monk who sold his ferrari. Good one, a step-by-step analysis of how to go deeper and towards the center or truth or enlightenment while still carrying on with this worldly duties. Very coincidentally, i read the last chapter sitting near a couple of graves. If you read the book you will know what i mean.:)

this book offered me hope when i needed it the most. the low of my life, when everything was failing and falling apart and every door was being shut on my face and i started having second thoughts and self doubts, it lifted me and gave me another few reasons to cling by. in short, it made me buy myself more time. truly cheering !
Realisation to the reader hard to come out of dialogue. Rather it should come to the reader like an accident. To make it long last.

If you are not addict reader..don't begin with this will ruin your the choice of literature.

The book is disgustingly on too much of want and want. I read this book in 2007.
