Çocukluğumda babam, bana asla unutamayacağım bir şey söylemişti: "Evlat, doğduğunda tüm dünya gülümserken sen ağlıyordun. Öyle bir yaşam sür ki öldüğünde tüm dünya ağlarken sen gülümse." Hayatın gerçek anlamını unuttuğumuz bir çağdayız. Ay'a bile gidilebiliyorken arkadaşlarımıza zaman ayıramıyoruz. Dünyanın diğer ucundaki bir hedefi on ikiden vurabiliyoruz ama ...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

"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 than

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

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?? Its 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

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

I bought this book too; it's at home, somewhere, collecting dust. I'd never read it, though. How can you one star a book without reading it, you ask. I hate it when authors use the success of their previous book to sell new books. And I don't mean like sequels here. I'm referring to how E.L. James wrote the same fucking book from his point of view, and that became a best seller too. Or Ravinder Singh, who, while banking on the success of his first book, referred to it more times than I could ...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.

Very small & little acts during your daily moments of life which we tend to overlook/don't have time/just not interested. The best part of this book which I personally loved is the division of the whole book in small chapters, this tends to make it an enjoyable experience. While reading certain chapters I could easily remember some moments of my own childhood passing through my eyes which many times made me laugh-out loud & feel the sudden burst of happiness , energy flowing through my ...more

This book offers beautiful pieces of advice if taken seriously can create good habits and values that leads to success. It is beautifully written, easy to read and follow and quiet enjoyable.

My favourite quotes in the book:

'When you were born, you cried while the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a way that when you die the world cries while you rejoice'

'Effective, fulfilled people do not spend time doing what is most convenient and comfortable. They have the courage to listen to their

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." ...more

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.

I found this book average. There is nothing new but repetition of the teachings of wise men. The chapters of the book seems to be have been written around a quotation rather than quotations being used to give force to the message. Many of the teachings are based on his personal experience, which may not work for you as each person is different. It reminds me an story

I am not a huge fan of non-fiction, but starting with 2020, I vowed to try to read at least one non-fic book a month, starting with this one.
From what I understand, this book is the 3rd part of the monk who sold his Ferrari series, but can be read as a stand alone too.
It is a tiny book, with tiny length of lessons that portray huge ideas, The common factor among all the lessons? Just make your time worth it!
I found some amazing lessons in the book, which I will definitely be using in my life.

This book contains 101 lessons and in that lessons you would get to know about what things you should start practising in life to make the most of it and on the same hand you should not feel low at any point of time.

Making a journal everyday, see your problem as a question and then try to answer it, take out time for the worries, selfless service and many more are the lessons that you will go through when you will read this book.

Mr. Robin Sharma is a very successful and a very talented writer.

Every once in a while I feel the need to read an inspirational book, it does me good. This is the first book of Robin Sharma's that I have read, although I do have another one waiting.
This is a collection of 101 very short "life lessons". Nothing really new here, but many important reminders.
This author peppers his writing with quotes from other writers, philosophers, historical figures, etc. so much so that this felt a lot more like a compilation of quotes than an original work. I felt cheated

A simple lucid read... Who Will Cry When You Die? is one of the most easy-to-read self-help books. Big life lessons in small pockets of words. When to wake up, how to start your morning, how to get the best out of those 24 hours of your day and how to make your life worth it, and so on and so forth, every such question finds it's answer in the 101 lessons that Robin Sharma reflects upon. After all, it is not all about your crying on your birth, but the quantity and quality of people who cry on ...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 ...more

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 ...more
