The author unsuccessfully tried turning a self-help book into a novel. I kept waiting to either learn something new or become intrigued and neither happened throughout the whole book.

My mother stumbled across this book and urged me to read it. I was skeptical at first but I have read the book 4 times from to back and every day I go back to my markings. The book is so uplifting. It has changed my life. It has changed the way I think and brought me to a happier place in life. I would highly recommend this book.

This book could work wonders in your life if you can read and follow everything written in it. The best part of the book is the fable which minds all the entities that can help you reach your destiny and meet your dreams!!

Julian, a high powered attorney who spends most of his time pushing his stress levels, has a heart attack out of the blue. He immediately quits his job and goes off to seek a better life for himself. As part of his promise to help others, he returns to his old law firm to share his story of learning inner peace and spiritual happiness from some monks who live high atop a mountain. Written very much in the style of an inspirational business book like The One Minute Manager by Ken Blanchard.Characters: Julian, the ex power attorney, seems to have taken things seriously when having his heart attack, but it seems rather unrealistic to go from being a power hungry attorney to living in India to seek your spiritual trueness overnight. Frame: setting is strictly conversations in a non-descript setting; pacing is very layered and drawn outStyle: The tone of the book is very business inspirational - much like the Ken Blanchard books who tell inspirational stories to motivate other towards becoming better managers.

A delightful, easy-to-read book, packed with life-giving wisdom. As it was published in 1997, and because I am in the second half of my life, I feel I am already living much of the wisdom shared. But, as wisdom is timeless, it still worth the read, and the reminder.

Robin Sharma's The monk who sold his Ferrari has a unique title but is worth the read. The story tells of a worn out, over weight attorney who after suffering a heart attack disappears in order to find himself. when he reappears he is the picture of excellent health and has discovered truth to his own happiness. He recounts his journey in a way that takes you back to your child like self. He outlines several age old and spiritual truths along with a wealth of wisdom (physical, emotional) in order to discover how to put passion back into a busy hectic life that can often be filled with discontentment and stress. The best part is how the story unfolds like an onion as he builds your excitement one truth at a time. I definitely recommend this to anyone who is in search of a more fulfilled life and wants to know what their purpose on earth should be. Sharma has a wonderful way with words.

The story is the awakening of a somewhat egotistical, stressed-out attorney who chooses to change and live a full life, mentally, physically and emotionally rather than a life of stress and selfish pursuits. Powerful but simple ideas on always improving yourself and making today better than yesterday. I recommend this book followed up by Sharma's new book, "A Leader Who has No Title."

The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari was a major inspiration. I recommend keeping a notebook and pen by your side everytime you pick up the book. I took pages and pages of notes, quotes, and concepts from the wisdom given here. I gave my book to a friends and will definitely purchase more as gifts to give to others, and hopefully they can pass those on as well. The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari will open your eyes to the opportunities we already have that may be over-looked or neglected. We have much more time than we believe if one is able to develop an awareness of it. Buy the book, cultivate it wisdom, and pass on the knowledge! - Howard Cramptom, Jr.

'The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari' starts off dramatically with a powerful scene where the protagonist experiences a heart attack in a court battle. He soon realizes that his pace as a lawyer is creating stress that may contribute to his early death if he doesn't change his direction in life. This wake up call takes him on a spiritual journey to India where he meets three teachers who each impart an important lesson to him. He soon realizes the meaning of life outside his materialistic goals.

This book will stimulate your mind and awaken your spirit as it unveils the mysteries of the universe. Some of these 'eternal truths' of happiness may be familiar to you, but the practical method in which they are displayed by Mr. Sharma I'm sure you have never seen before.

This book changed my life. I have made it a point to write a review just so that I can urge you as a fellow human being that if you want to do something for yourself for once, if you truly desire inner peace and you want it to be everlasting, this book is most definately for you. If you are a curious on inquisitive person and you have found yourself pondering the meaning of life or how to maximize your potential and find that there is too much information out there, this is the simple guide you have been looking for. In my opinion, you need nothing else.
