It was said by Norman Vincent Peale that by changing your thoughts, you change your world.

Og Mandino runs with this concept by presenting the reader with ten "scrolls;" messages of affirmation that are to be repeated each morning and night. The reader spends the first week reading scroll #1 morning and night, the second week reading scroll #2, and so on.

The book did have a transformative effect for me. I believe that what we take in to our minds has a direct impact on our attitudes, and therefo

The Greatest Secret in the World brought me to tears by the time I finished reading it years ago, and still does.

I couldn't believe what the secret was, although I knew it all along...

Get it. Read it. Believe it!

Motivational and inspires you through Hafid's story. Loved scroll |X - All is worthless without action. But lacks in telling pointers on how to get that self discipline, though it talks about controlling emotions but missed practical ways in day to day life to master self discipline.

Many of us desire to be better people. Actually becoming better is the ultimate challenge. Og Mandino's book gives the reader a very practical guide to acquiring and practicing virtue. It works as follows: one reads a short meditation three times each day and keeps a daily journal of how he or she practiced each virtue. It really doesn't take more than twenty minutes a day, and it definitely works. However, even than small commitment of time can sometimes seem like too much, and it forces us to ...more

I borrowed the book from my cousin, and I'm in the middle of the scrolls.

The book is exactly what it promises. There are scrolls which are basically daily meditations that you repeat three times a day for a month each, designed to teach you a characteristic that helps make you successful. Each chapter has a small introduction and explanation for the scroll and a success recorder.

It's a handy tool if you're willing to put in the time, kind of condescending at times, and definitely marketed to C

This is part 2 of Og Mandino's "greatest" trilogy. This is something of a workbook format - each chapter sets up and reveals one of the principles found on the 10 scrolls.

If you were looking to get right to work and skip the novel part you could skip right to this book since all of the scrolls are reprinted.

I liked the quotes in the workbook, but since I checked this from the library I am not using it daily as it was meant to be.

If you're serious about incorporating the scrolls into your life

Highly influential. It helped me identify and reflect on traits I knew I had, but was unable to express them. The ability to recognize your strong abilities and let go of your weak ones. This is up there with the Art of War, for me.

I enjoy Mandino's writing. It's my goal to read all of his books. His words inspire me and I especially enjoy the Christian perspectives. I wish I could have heard this man speak in person. He has had some miraculous experiences in his life.

This one is a workbook for following the 10 Scrolls form the Grates Salesman in the World. Since I had no intentions on doing the exercises this one was not for me. The short stories and quotes were nice.
