Wisdom to Create a Life of Passion, Purpose, and Peace

This inspiring tale provides a step-by-step approach to living with greater courage, balance, abundance, and joy. A wonderfully crafted fable, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari tells the extraordinary story of Julian Mantle, a lawyer forced to confront the spiritual crisis of his out-of-balance life. On a life-changing odyssey to an ancient culture, he discovers powerful, wise, and practical lessons that teach us to:

  • Develop Joyful Thoughts,

  • Follow Our Life's Mission and Calling,

  • Cultivate Self-Discipline and Act Courageously,

  • Value Time as Our Most Important Commodity,

  • Nourish Our Relationships, and

  • Live Fully, One Day at a Time.

I found this book quite ordinary. It may appeal to some people who are quite optimistic or may not have faced hard realities of life. The title of the book is quite attractive but the theme is quite ordinary. Read full review

1.5 star actually. A bit more than "didn't like it", but still not good enough for "I liked it", so I'll just leave it at 1.5. Read full review
