1) The Power of Authenticity: I've been thinking about this for quite a long time. People always tend to interfere in one's life and it happens a lot of time that you do things that you don't want or like to do, or meet some people whom you don't like. Be authentic means for me removing all the people's influences from your life. It needs courage to do so and face the consequences. On the other hand, like it or not, you are a part of big society and no one ca ...more

This is far from being the kind of book I usually read, and I was totally unaware of Robin Sharma’s existence before I read it. I was sent it to review or wouldn’t have ever ha ...more
I felt betrayed by this book, because all he truly wanted and or needed to narrate is the 7 letters composing the talismans. Now, all he did was give a roundabout story, about travels, and all. I do not favor those made-up stories. Give me truth, for the clock doesn't have time.
I loved, loved, loved the letters, for they were indeed the highlights of this ...more

The writer has simply summarized his main purpose of this book in this quotation:
"It's not what you will get out of the books that is so enriching - it is what the books will get out of you that will ultimately change your life. Books do not actually teach you anything new. Books simply help you to see what is already within your self."
And if you are content and happy with your current life situation, you should pick this, as well.
For either parties, this book takes you through the journey of the narrator and we are spiritually translated across the world and it's beauty.

It’s my 3rd book of robin sharma and i have always cherished his books. i like the positive energy he puts in his books.
So what's new in this book-- "Nothing". He was again preaching the same kind of thoughts which he tells in all other books but what bored me is a plot. The whole book was like a travel map where Jonathan travels continuously. I felt like there was lot of things written just to fill pages. The entire summary of the book was just concluded in the last ...more
The ending was good though. :')
I read The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari almost two years ago. Even then, despite my young age, I was able to understand whatever was written, and appreciate it, if not actually implement it effectively. The book was magical, and so, so, so inspiring.
Thus, when I was given the opportunity to read The Secret Letters of The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari , I jumped at the opportunity. I was expecting something similar to its prequel.
The book was some of that, and a lot more.
