Product Description

Review

"The book is about finding out what is truly important to your real spiritual self rather than being inundated with material possessions." Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon) "A captivating story that teaches as it delights." Paulo Coelho "[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 Paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari imaginatively presents a set of simple, yet profoundly effective lessons for personal growth, created by bestselling author and renowned professional speaker Robin S. Sharma, based on his own search for life's true purpose. In a tale that is both wondrous and mystical, Sharma offers practical and wise advice on how to: develop joyful thoughts; follow your life's mission and calling; look within for success; cultivate self-discipline and act courageously; value time as your most important commodity; nourish your relationships; and live life fully, one day at a time. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Steven R. McEvoy HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on May 10 2006
Format: Paperback
This is an interesting story. It is a story of a lawyer who appears to have it all - the corner office, the life style, the cars, women, … Then he gives it all up and tours the East. While there he comes across this strange monk and monastery. He comes to live life in a much different way. Yet he is challenged by the monk who has trained him to go back home and share the message he has learnt, with the West. Julian, our main character, returns to his old law firm and to his protégé John. He tells him a parable; then the rest of the book explains the parable and how it relates to different aspects of our lives. The parable is rather simple and a little strange but as it is explained you will never forget it. Read it to find out how a garden, lighthouse, sumo wrestler, pink wire cable, stopwatch, roses and a winding path of diamonds are symbols of timeless principles and virtues by which to live your life. This book could help raise the quality of your life to a new level.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on Oct. 10 1999
Format: Paperback
I found the book to be a useful step-by-step guide to personal growth. The fable format helps to add interest to what could otherwise become a tiresome listing of all the good things we should be doing for ourselves but aren't. Although most of the principles dealt with can be found in countless other volumes on self-help, personal growth and spirituality, Sharma's way of putting it all together helps to keep one on track. And sticking to the straight and narrow is for me the most difficult aspect of becoming the person I want to be. I have a minor quibble with Sharma's treatment of fear. He ignores the fact that fear breaks down into two main types. The first is the healthy kind that keeps us out of the path of speeding trucks and the other is the kind of fear that, due to abuse or difficult upbringings or whatever, exists in our psyche as a chronic undertone of tension and anxiety that undermines our self-image and our relationships. Minor complaints aside, I feel that a careful reading of the book and an equally judicious application of it's principles will help anyone to find greater joy and freedom in their lives.

Format: Paperback
An amazing book about balancing ones life! I have read this book twice, I've found it to be one of the only books that I continue to think of when going through trial and tribulations. This book has taught me more about how little things really aren't important, and how we CAN change our lives with the simple teachings in his book.
I highly recommend everyone to read this!
