“[Its] principles have been fascinating and there were shared principles from writers such as Robin Sharma and Deepak Chopra. How does all that impact on a game of rugby? I can’t answer that. All I know is it’s enough to help me to proceed in a way that makes me happy enough to go out there and be proud of who I am and what I hope I can bring to this team.” Jonny Wilkinson--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Well, you will find a story in this book which is building block of our life, you will be mesmerised reading that. It is one of the main story which was told by Yogi raman to Julian while he was there in sivana learning and growing and this story is the masterpiece of this book. Actually, the book is all about that particular story so I won’t tell much.
And John here in the book plays the character who listens to Julian narrating and asks him questions about the journey and about what he learns from the voyage. And that will be more clear to you when you will read this book.
It has 13 Chapters starting with “The wake up call, The mysterious visitor, The miraculous transformation of Julian Mantle, A magical meeting with the sages of sivana, A spiritual student of the sages, The wisdom of personal change, A most Extraordinary garden, Kindling your inner fire, The ancient art of Self-leadership, The power of discipline, Your most precious commodity, The ultimate purpose of life, The timeless secret of lifelong happiness.
All these chapters are so beautifully penned down that while reading I felt that Julian is narrating his journey, sitting right in front of me.
This book has everything which will make you inspired to fulfil all your dreams.
So my self-help journey started with this one. This was the first book of Robin Sharma I read and after this I have read many more books written by him. He is just brilliant.
This book has helped me a lot in improving the quality of my life. You know what, you may not be feeling it right now but having control over your mind is the best thing that can ever happen to you, there will be nothing that can hinder your progress in any way and you'll feel yourself in a state of eternal bliss.
I read it 2 years ago and still all the concepts and techniques are fresh in my mind.
This book is magical in its own way. 💫
There's this energy that you get everytime you read the book.
I would recommend it to everyone but esp to someone struggling with something, it really is inspiring and helpful
But " the monk who sold is Ferrari " Is like a preaching to me. Every line you have to mark. And after some time I feel some bore. But so many people like this. But to me "Alchemist" is best as compared to this one.
-> It is only through success on the inside that success on the outside is possible.
-> You will never be able to hit a target that cannot see. People spend their whole lives dreaming of becoming happier. Yet they do not see the importance of taking even ten minutes a month to write out their goals and to think deeply about the meaning of their lives.
-> The purpose of life is a life of purpose. One must have a strong sense of purpose, money and happiness will follow only then.
-> Fear is a bye- product of negative stream of consciousness. Through realisation and constant confrontation of fears, we can realise self goals.
-> Book speaks about sages that live in the Himalayas. Their way of life is simple yet ornate with good-hearted self discipline. They don't allow for negative thoughts to creep into their mindset. And often conduct punishment when a negative thought does seep in. Also they set small goals and ensure they attain those.
AND MANY MORE...
This is a remarkable book. Not cliche at all. It is filled with such simple flow and the language is so unpretentious that the warmth of the words will simmer into your life as you read these words. I felt delighted as I thought a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Negative thoughts only cause stoppages and breaks in life. The aim should be to channel the positive thoughts into full fruition. Goal-Setting is important and it is through goal setting we can truly achieve something.
There are certain techniques the author calls rituals. For example the rituals include "early rising in the morning" , "the act of solitude" , "reading and enhancing knowledge" , "ritual of physicality" , "Live nourishment" , "ritual of personal reflection" , ritual of music, ritual of spoken word and more...
These are very good at guiding you. You have to read it more than once to truly check whether you are goal setting and accomplishing.
I highly recommend this book. It took me hardly 3-4 days to read.
Top international reviews
If you want to find spirituality look to the past of your people, your country, your religious histories and your family. Look into yourself and find the deeper levels of your own personality. Please don't simply adopt the religious heritage of several random eastern countries and pretend like they have any relevance with your 21st century lifestyle. It's simply irresponsible make-believe to do so and about as original as a goth dressed in black who thinks he's edgy as hell. You're not progressive. You're backwards thinking. If you want to fix the mess of 21st century living, the corporate rat race and the hellish fallout of the industrial revolution, banking crisis and all the rest of it, focus yourself on the society you inhabit instead of staring off toward Tibet, shaving your head and chanting Hari Krishna. It's not big or clever. It's childsplay. Pretending to be something you're not because you don't like who you are. Wake up call: you can't escape who you are. No amount of head shaving, getaways in Nepal, communes with monks and Feng Shui will save you from who you are, where you come from, what your ancestors did and what you yourself must do to make the world better when you leave than it was when you arrived.
Highly recommend it!

Highly recommend for those who wants more out of a dull mundane life.
The only thing that lets the book down is the way in which it is written in that the conversation between the two characters seemed very corny and false. If this was changed the book would get 5 stars. However, despite the writing the message is a very good one.
Yes, it is a bit cheesy and the dialogue a bit stilted at times, but this made it no less of a compulsive read which I looked forward to getting stuck into each day. I loved the use of Yogi Rahman's fable to summarise the ideas in the book, which I now refer to daily to remind me to put the book's teaching into practice. Overall, an enjoyable and insightful read!
