From the Inside Flap
In his long and successful career as an agent to many of the most famous and dynamic motivational speakers in the world, Bart Manning had no peer. But when a series of misfortunes silenced the voices of his star clients, he happily retired. He'd had his last innings, and with his lovely wife, Mary, was enjoying his newfound freedom.
So why, one morning, did he find himself headed back to the little office that he had never given up? He didn't know. But as he sat at his dusty desk, he decided to go back into business. If God had sent him there, Bart told himself, he would wait for His plan to unfold.
Then, at a crowded convention, he found his answer, in the person of a handsome young man named Patrick Donne, whose deep, commanding voice spoke words of profound wisdom that electrified the audience. With the thrill of discovery, Bart recognized Donne's short speech as the best inspirational talk he had ever heard. Bart was soon caught up in the extraordinary realm that was Patrick's ordinary world, where even tragedy and sorrow became transforming experiences and remarkable things happened. . . .

true to life story which concerns only three players, a
popular, classic motivational speaker (Bart Manning), a
"new-age" motivational speaker (Patrick Donne), and
Bart's wife...contains secret ways to live your life to
the fullest, one of it came out years ago...from Jesus.
The presentation is very much far from the standard ways,
you'll be surprised by the way the author did it.

I would not be understating matters if I report this is my favorite inspirational book. I've given it as a graduation gift, token of esteem, on an occasion of solace.
This is one you must own. But I bet you won't hang on to your copy long, either. Some books are just meant to be shared.
If you have not read any Og Mandino books before, then I suggest you start with The Greatest Salesman in the World. I personally like that best of all I have read.
After you have read a few of his books, you come to expect the unusual twist that all his books contain. Even though you have a good idea of what is coming, it is still spellbinding.
The book is well written and draws you into the book. The story is great but the lessons for living wrapped within the story are even more important.
You will be moved, inspired and enlightened. You can always count on Mandino to deliver a great story with some real lessons for better living.
