من اكثر الكتب التي احببتها
بسيط وسلس.. اشارة مرور حمراء للتوقف مع الذات وتقدير الاشياء البسيطة في الحياة
اشبه بماراثون حياة اكس لارج الذي طرحته في مدونتي استروجينات
مليء بالقصص التي مر بها الكاتب وجعلته يقدر الحياة ويهتم بما يجب ان يتركه من بعده
الكتاب عبارة عن عناوين قصيرة من صفحتين اقل او اكثر
يمكن قراءة اي عنوان منها.. لا يحتاج الى الربط بينها او التركيز فيها
لذا من الممتع قراءته في السيارة او في اوقات الانتظار

اوصي به لمن اراد التأمل في الحياة وعبرها الجميلة
"When you were born, you cried while the world rejoiced. Live your life such a way that when you die the world cries and you rejoice". This is the crux of the book written by the author of the bestseller ‘The Monk who sold his Ferrari’ who tells one how to lead a prosperous life in a simple, direct and easy-to-read way.
The author, though very young, has been able to summon some really good and inspiring unknown as well as known but not practised advice. He guides the readers through his more tha...more

Rubin Sharma ... Is a great author
His book The Monk who Sold His Ferrari was unique and appealing ... I'm in my way to read it !!!

But this book "Who Will Cry When You Die" is a life lessons from the monk who sold his ferrari ....

It is so simple and was written by simple language ...

This book helped me to make a hard decision in my life because I was reading it at critical time of my life.

It is a book you read when you are having bad days or good days!!! It just gives you a huge push to live y...more
The book is full of preachings about "the right way to lead a good life" presented in a list like manner rather than the thoughts weaved in a story line or put in a philosophical manner to make an interesting read. If leading a fulfilling life was as simple as following a check list, the world wouldn't be full of distress. In my opinion contemplating your life for half the time that you would need to finish the book would be much more fruitful.

Everything explained in the book is true, except tha...more
I think this is the best book I've ever read- in the way that it gives so many good advices. After reading (and while reading) this book I put myself together, became more disciplined (e.g. it inspired me to wake up earlier in mornings, to go swimming in mornings, to think more positive etc.). While reading this book, I put down some notes, and after finishing reading this book, I continued to read my notes over and over again. I really recommend this book if you need a little push to make some...more

Too many people lead small life, we die in our twenties and are buried at eighty. Remember nothing can stop a person who refuses to be stopped. Most people don't really fail; they simply give up trying

We know everything whatever told in this book, but do we really follow those?? It’s not just about knowing things which helps you. The real worth of knowing things is when we really implement in our daily life. This is a one book, filled with motivation and encouragement. Every chapter defines the...more
Well i am not a fan of Self Help books like these! They do give you a pump but at the end of the day you know that everything has to come from inside ;) These books are just like a beer that makes you feel high for few hours and when you wake up next morning everything is gone :P

One day at work, I found a book at my desk with a note that read, "This is for you. It is an excellent book with much wisdom on how to live your life. I absolutely love this book and I hope you enjoy it too." I pass this book and note on to you. Though the title is morose, the contents are uplifting. This author reminds us to make time for the important and cut out our futile endeavors. Such mini chapters include, "Stop Condemning," "Go on a News Fast," and "Don't Finish Every Book You Start." S...more

Robin Sharma - the man who inspired me to change the way I look at life. Robin is an amazing writer who has himself transformed his life and has helped numerous others to change the way they look at life.
Who Will Cry When You Die? is an amazing book that helps us see the deeper truth of life and help prioritize what is important and what is not.

I strongly recommend this book to everyone, to read it, re-read it and follow the teachings in the book to see a change in your life.
All the best.
Aruna Kumar Gadepalli
Reading a book of this sort will definitely makes ones day. I really enjoyed the book, though thought provoking at times. Most of these lessons are known to us probably we neglect them or take it for granted we postpone them to practice. Enjoy reading the book.
It really makes me think after this book. It is just like asking myself if I am living on my purpose and if i am doing the right thing. Really helps me to understand the views in the future. :)
Adam Kolich
I mostly enjoyed this book. It contains a great many lessons that we all should practice in life. I was a little disappointed and perplexed by the seeming contradictions also contained. For example, the ordinary social conventions of the status quo that Robin Sharma seems to enable. Like families, children and society. As a devout individualist I am reticent to conforming to society's conventions. I do dance to the beat of my own drum and follow my intuition. I do not need to be instructed on th...more
Sometimes you need a little push to know you are on the right track. That time, a book might well come in handy. This book is like the 101 on life (not literally). It has some good ideas and thoughts, and if you just look at the title itself, you might be happier than you were the moment before. It's one book that you can't classify as "one-time-read" or "re-readable". If you sit with it continuously and finish, you'd either feel very elated or very down. Because after reading some of it, you mi...more

Nice Book. Shares 101 things we can do to live a better life. Some of these are very simple to implement, the others will definitely take time, patience, dedication and passion. But overall, I find this book good for anyone who wants some quick points rather than going through a story and coming back to the same point.Who Will Cry When You Die? Life Lessons from the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari
“Who will cry when you die” offers 101 inspirational lessons on how to live a more focused prosperous life, in a simple direct and easy-to-read way. Some of the tips are clichés like keep a journal, a walk in the woods and have family meals but others are thought provoking like become an imposter, create a hero list, and have a living funeral, you can easily carry the book with you , it will offer inspiration through out your day.
Shah Saguna

A book that gives one a deep sense of satisfaction and makes the person feel good from within. The mantras, if implemented in daily life can bring a positive change in one's attitude . A must read for the youth who are filled with negative energy and lack of confidence. Very inspiring and motivational.
Vineet Joshi
It's always good to be able to refer to certain parts of this book- if you have an open mind and are okay with taking a strangers advice humbly and without being excessively egotistical, this book could really help you overcome those imaginary barriers which we can often create.
Kruthi Krishna

not to judge by what it says "cry when u die"

reminds u of what u r losing in life

each lesson is a lesson for life.

u start enjoing small things in life.

language is simple n understanding.

not to miss it
Phenomenally inspiring. This isn't a story, a novel, or anything of the nature so if that's what you're expecting you're in for a disappointment, possibly. This is more of a daily inspiration book on various topics
Sougata Ray
I am new to this type of self help literature. So I would rather take the option to come back and write my review only after I have implemented the lessons learned here in this book. Thank You. :)
Kripa Jayakumar
Definitely tops the list on my Self-help listopia! Great read! Once you are done with the book, you have this incredibly lighter heart and determination to make some changes to your monotonous lives!
Moula Hussain
A thought provoking read and must read for all the people who wants to leave behind something to this world after they are gone
Kristen Iworsky
Little pieces of typical inspiration most books have. You hear them over and over, but each time it feels like a revelation.
Ravishankar Radhakrishnan
Most Amazing book I have read till date.... Every line is heavenly inspiring...
Nishit Kadia
A very good book to discover better and happier one-self
Maja Milocanovich
I hated this title, and would not even read it if I didn't like Sharma so much. :)
Despite of that, the book was good and definitely leaves you feeling inspired and motivated to change some things about your life and live better!
I really like his advice and I've incorporated a lot of the things he talks about in my daily routine.. He makes it all seem very easy, which it is, if you want to work on yourself.
I find Sharma very charming and he has a very nice "tone" when writing, just as he does wh...more

No sé bien como "evaluar" un libro de autoayuda porque es el primero que leo, pero me gustó.
No siento un gran cambio ni nada, más bien me di cuenta de cosas que hago y que no que me ayudan a vivir mejor y sentirme mejor conmigo misma. Igual hay ENE cosas que podría hacer para mejorar mi calidad de vida y no hago xddd pero bueno.
El libro está más dirigido a gente con una vida ya más o menos armada que sienten que no saben qué hacer o que se les va el tiempo sin lograr sus objetivos o sueños.
