Don't buy this book. After reading the Secret Letters, I was intrigued. The Monk who Sold his Ferrari did not meet any of my expectations. I actually quit the book 3/4 of the way through because it's message was obvious, predictable, and not even told in an interesting story. Two stars is generous:(

Some of the advice he gives is sound, but he makes it all sound so mystical. For example, the "Heart of the Rose" exercise is meditation. There, simple and precise; no need to get a rose and stare at it, learn about meditation instead, not some mystical, over-specific prescription.
Other concepts, like kaizen, were interesting, but didn't talk enough about the philosophy of the idea.
All in all, the concepts expressed in the book seem to all come from some non-existant religious sect, rather than from the author's life. I know that the ideas are expressed in a story to make them more easily absorbed, but the effect seems to obscure the real potential of some of the concepts in the book.
