Didn't Live Up to My Expectations
on June 21, 2014
I was looking forward to reading this book, based on all the good reviews about it and also about author Og Mandino. What a disappointment!
As another reviewer has mentioned here, Mandino on one hand states that he doesn't want to brag about his own accomplishments, awards etc...but that certainly wasn't the case in this book. He went into a LOT of detail, talking about how he had been recognized over the years, by many groups and individuals. It got to be very boring too and definitely not what I expected in this kind of book.
As for the advice that he's giving, it's all 'same old, same old' stuff...be grateful, learn from your mistakes, spend time with family...yawn!!! Yes, they are all good things to remember but nothing new here.
This one is headed for the library free box. NOT a keeper.
