Everyone loves a good fable, and this is certainly one. The protagonist is Julian Mantle, a high-profile attorney with a whacked-out schedule and a shameful set of spiritual priorities. Of course it takes a crisis (heart attack) to give Mantle pause. And pause he does--suddenly selling all his beloved possessions to trek India in pursuit of a meaningful existence. The Himalayan gurus along the way give simple advice, such as, "What lies behind you and what lies before you is nothing compared to what lies within you." Yet it is easy to forgive the story's simplicity because each kernel of wisdom is framed to address the persistent angst of Western white-collar professionals.
Here is the story of Julian Mantle, a superstar lawyer whose out-of-balance lifestyle leads him to a near-fatal heart attack in a packed courtroom. His physical collapse brings him into a spiritual crisis that forces him to confront the condition of his life. Hoping to find happiness and fulfillment, he embarks upon an extraordinary odyssey to an ancient culture, where he discovers a powerful system to release the potential of his mind, body, and soul and learns to live with passion, purpose, and peace. Brilliantly blending ancient spiritual wisdom of the east with contemporary success principles of the West, this inspiring tale provides a step-by-step approach to living with greater courage, balance, abundance and joy.

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.
Firstly, the title is catchy and I always love reading Robin Sharma books because they are sources of enlightenment.
The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari is all about fulfilling your dreams & reaching your destiny and it’s one that will certainly make you give some thought to your life, your goals, your dreams and how your daily habits help you reach those dreams.
The book revolves around Julian mantle, a successful lawyer deep down an unhappy, confused, stressed person filled with pain who suffered a heart attack while he was arguing the Air Atlantic case and after he got discharged from the hospital he suddenly disappeared.
Actually, the book is all about that particular story so I won’t tell much.
All these chapters are so beautifully penned down. It is truly a life changer,trust me you really experience a change after you complete the book.This book has everything which will make you inspired to fulfill all your dreams. I highly recommend you to grab your copies and read it at earliest.Its a must read.

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!
