‘The Monk who sold his Ferrari’ one of the best books I have ever read in my life. If I say this post is a review about this book, then it will be a blasphemy.

Well the books tell the story of a professionally successful lawyer (Julian), who was a failure in his personal life. In search of the true happiness, he moves to Himalayas and there he meets legendary saints and they teach him art of living and how to live life fullest. The story is told from the point of view of Julian’s colleague John. The story progresses by, Julian sharing the secret behind his new vigor to john. The story is explained in seven ‘virtues’ like Master your mind, Follow your purpose, practice kaizen, live with discipline, respect your time, selflessly serve others, and embrace the present.

My take
It is good to read motivating books occasionally. That will create some positive energy in our lives. The book is a must read(and must have) for all the professionals, youngsters,(2 say recommend to everyone.) .This book teach us how to live the life fullest and also deals with work-life pressure, self realization, self improvement, spirituality ,charity , time management etc .It is not a book for casual read. Take your time to read it and benefit it.
