Shelved to “didn’t finish”. I think I’ve had my fill of self improvement. Whilst this book was loaded with sage advice the premise of the writing and style annoyed me. A book of fiction interweaved with famous quotes after quote just didn’t engage me. Nothing new so shelved.

This book is about determining what really matters in life- not money, not material posessions, but the real stuff of life. The main character meets with three inspirational coaches who each offer a slightly different perspective and different advice on living an extraordinary life.

Everyone should have this book

This book was referred to me by my co-worker Rich. I totally enjoyed this book and hated to see it end. I liked it so much that I gave it to my CEO for his birthday.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Sharma is definitely not among my fav self-help writes, yet this book left a great impression on me. There is just one thing I really don't like about his books..they all look alike. Oh well, at least I got few good advices form this one :)

Good Book.. But if you have already read Who will cry when you die, A leader who has no tiled and The monk who sold his Ferrari then this book would be just OK.. As majority of concepts are repeated from those books.

Self-help books are tricky. In my view, to be effective, they have to balance meaning and purpose with readability for the audience. In the best books, the audience doesn't realize that they are learning. In my experience, when I begin to feel lectured to, I lose interest and begin to nit pick the writer's material.

The best self-help books I have read have been memoirs. The writer pours his or her heart out and shares what he or she has learned. Off the top of my head, two self-help or motivati

"Knowledge is, knowing that tomato is a fruit; wisdom is, not putting it in a fruit salad".

This book presents the scientific and philosophical work on human behaviour as a self-discovery journey. I can guess that I would have loved this book much more, 5-7 years ago, till I had not been introduced to the "real" scientific and philosophical work.

While I like the part dealing with the human behaviour (much to be taken with a pinch of salt, of course), this book fulfills all the typical criteria

With great quotes, this books tries to teach us what is really important in life. It is very similar to self help books but since it is written as a story it is lighter and more effective.

It is a good book however it has a story that no longer surprises. The writing of Robin Sharma is a bit like that.
Julissa Dantes-castillo
Reading this book was a wholesome experience.

It is a self-help but it also carries the story about Jack Valentine, it is very descriptive, for some can be tiresome, and that gives a great idea of where was Jack at any minute making you feel like as Jack you were also on a Hawaii beach.

It has a compilation of much self help books concepts, and even if the knowledge wasn't new the author tried to give different perspectives on every topic.

Amazing book with lot of insights to life. Its a well laid out plan on how to achieve your highest self and to live a life worth living. Leaving a legacy worth remembering is a valuable goal to have.

In comparison to the same author's "Monk Who Sold His Ferrari," which really was my cup of tea (though unexpectedly), this one was a let-down because it dwells too much in abstract concepts without any true depth.

I really enjoyed this book. It was an easy read with a lot of learning so I will use many times in the future :) 5 stars!

I was torn between writing a glowing review and writing a scathing review.  Here’s why.

With beautiful quotes of wisdom in almost every sentence, this is most definitely a feel-good book, designed to make you feel good just for being alive.  It is simultaneously the cheesiest book I have ever read in my entire life.

It starts dramatically when protagonist Jack gets a shock to the system following a serious car accident.  Whilst in hospital, he meets Cal, a particularly enigmatic man, who offers Ja

The worst book I've ever read. It is based on a fake view of reality, it's made for you to believe that the world is all wonderful.
It's fool of cliche ideas like I'll go to India and change myself completely, I'll get home from there spiritualized...
Try and open the book at any page and count how many words like "good, amazing, wonderful, beautiful..." you'll find.
The main message is that choices must be made by intuition and with the heart. Despise reason and logical reasoning. It does not a

Wow.. very powerful book! I can say without hesitation that this is one of the most impactful and profound books I’ve ever read. There’s a lot to learn in life and this book helps to break it down into much more manageable ideas and strategies. I highlighted so many quotes and actionable steps and I took screen shots of over 50 pages.
I will definitely suggest this book to everyone I can think of and I’ll most likely read it several more times throughout my life.

Another amazing book by Robin Sharma, in this book, he tries to answer simple but fundamental questions: ‘Did I live wisely?’ ‘Did I love well?’ and ‘Did I serve greatly?'.
This book, beside his other works are all about creating an internal change, which is "One single shift that takes place in a single second just might be all it takes to awaken a new reality for you"...
So, I would advise you start reading this book to "Give up the drop, and become the ocean"

honestly, i had read so much of Robin sharma when i read this book, half of the time i didn't even pay attention. i quickly went through it, not much to tell about. a few lessons here and there well placed. but all in all, nothing special.

The book is interesting and is easy to follow. The advice given by the saint, the surfer, and the CEO are simple yet profound. However, the dialogues appear to be staged with John asking a question, and summarizing the answer. Knowing oneself could be the greatest gift one could hope for.

One of my favourite books... completely changed my life and shifted my perspective on the meaning of life.
Kelly
This was a decent book. It reiterates a lot of what I've already learned and read through other authors such as Neale Donald Walsch, Rhonda Byrne, Marilyn Jenett, Napoleon Hill, etc.

The author tries to put it into a sort of storyline instead of just a straight-forward "this is what I recommend you do" approach, which ends up being the reason I'm only giving this book three stars. For me, his message starts to get lost as I get a bit side-tracked by the poor character development, hard-to-believe

This is a book with full of quotes for life. A duplicate of The Alchemist with a simplier plot.

In the beginning of the book, Robin Sharma gave 3 questions that he called "Final questions". How to live intelligently, love truely and contribute fully. And step bu step, he answer all questions by discussion between main character and 3 greatest teachers. All analysis, explanation and conclusion for 3 problems are pretty theorical though logic and persuasive.

Like everything in life, reviews are subjective to multiple factors and probably some won't relate with my comment but it is what it is.
In the end, I believe the book could have been rated as good (up to 4 stars) if I've read it earlier in my life. After "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari" during the period I started to self explore my flaws and purpose in life, I was excited for reading another Sharma's piece. Unfortunately the topic and even the writing now seems basic and without a powerful messa

If you read The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari before, this book won't enlighten you that much.

Very good life lessons between the lines but the story is very poor.

It feels like Sharma put all his life lessons and advices around a very cheap, unrealistic story. Perspectives by main characters are mind-opening if you read not so much books of this genre. However, if you are a long-term individual development reader, this book won't provide much for your development.

Frankly, I decided to continue readin

Similar to his first book, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, it is a story of a man looking for a deeper, more fulfilling life. He gets life lessons from a saint/priest, a surfer, and a CEO which ultimately changes his life. The book is filled with a plethora of quotes- seems like every other paragraph Sharma throws in a quote- overload- which is done in an elementary and choppy fashion. Other than that which brought down the originality of the story, I liked the message of the book but it is basic ...more

It is an easy-to-read book and in a very subtle way it leads us in search of answers to the following simple but fundamental questions. "Did I live wisely?", "Did you know how to love?" and "Did I fulfill my mission towards others?". It is clearly a book designed to make us feel good just because we are alive. There is nothing better, if not that.
And in this phase that the world is currently going through, this book makes us question internally many attitudes taken, it is like a bath of answers
