My paperback copies and Kindle edition :-)

If you are reading this article, that indicates that you are seeking a personal change in your life. You are looking for a tool which helps you to achieve your dreams. You are searching for ways to bring lasting happiness within you.

You are here. And you are at the right place. Because I am going to share with you one of the most interesting, life changing book ever.

The monk who sold his Ferrari by Robin Sharma.

This is the book you need.

I am sure; you would have heard this book earlier, and it might surprise you that I am writing a review of a book which was published almost 15 years ago.

I came to know about this book only during last year. I have read this book again and again (at home, trains, planes and various places) and discovered that there is still something new I can learn every time I read this book. It’s amazing.

I am writing this review because I am compelled to write. It’s never too late to share a good read.

This is one of those books which had a lasting impact on me.

I feel a great sense of inner satisfaction when I share something useful with others, and I am lucky to have a platform (my blog)  which helps me to reach as many people as possible.

The monk who sold his Ferrari has been a spiritual teacher to me in many ways.

  • Book taught me that living in the moment is an actual life lived.
  • It made me realise that life need not be perfect, but it needs to be interesting, memorable.
  • It revealed a strange truth that physical possessions make our life busy, not necessarily happier.
  • It helped me to understand the life better.
  • Real happiness lies within if you realise it.
  • It helped me to build willpower and inner strength.
  • It helped me to expand my dreams.
  • Time is your most precious commodity and its non-renewable.
  • The power of ancient simplicity.

  1. Hi Naveen,

    In my mind, you couldn’t have picked a better book to review. Not because of it’s written quality, or because of it’s content, but because of it’s personal significance to me. Sharma’s book was the first self-help/personal development book I ever read, and it bought about my awakening to the person I am today.

    Great review, thanks for choosing this book Naveen :-)
