really liked it

I've been seeing this book title in book libraries for ages. The title, of course, is very appealing and I always told myself I would find one day to read it. I finally got it in an audiobook and it was a good book to have it in this format. Not all books work as audiobooks.

Robin Sharma is an expert in his field and after having heard him at some talks and interviews, I felt curious about reading some of his work. Maybe I was expecting a book to be a revelation or life-changing event, but that is not something that I can judge, self-help books affect people in different ways depending on what stage in their lives they are in. Some years ago, it could have been life-changing for me, but it wasn't today. However, I still enjoyed the book and loved how Sharma used Julian's character to tell a story that would contain the principles he wanted to share. Self-help books can a bit difficult to absorbe if you don't' find a good way to relate to people, and storytelling is definitely a good valid resource to do this. Perhaps the fable of the Zumo fighter wasn't as appealing as I would have expected, but having said that, it is hard to tell how this fable can influence other people's lives.

It is a good book nonetheless, and I recommend it.
