This is a great book for anyone who is a fan of Steve's show like I am because it is somewhat of a compilation of his earlier work. It's well written, concise, and packed with great advice for everyday life. Also, since the chronology of the book isn't important, you can open up to any page after reading it for a quick pick me up whenever you need a little motivation. Great book, I recommend it.

This is a book of inspirational quotes. Not entertaining, nor clever, no story line, nothing..just quotes. If you want quotes log on to google for free, don't waste your money on this book.

I love this book! I found myself laughing out loud at some of Steve's more humorous observations and stories. His ability to take the philosophies of the ages and consolidate them, sort through them, and present the truth derived from years of research to the reader is superb. I've been a fan of his show for some time and am happy to have this collection of some of his best works! A must for those trying to improve themselves!

If you're not familiar with Steve's work, this book has a lot of his best stuff inside; showing the readers what an amazing mind he has.

As a fan of his radio show, I have already familiarized with a lot of what's in this book already... so it's perfect for someone who is just hearing about Steve Maraboli.

Very grateful that FINALLY he's put a book out for all his fans.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to fill their lives with inspiration, or wants to share inspiring works with a friend or loved one.

You won't be let down, in fact, it may even inspire change in you!

Steve Maraboli's book "Life the Truth and Being Free" is designed so you can open it up to any page whenever you need a little motivation or inspiration and is packed with practical advice for everyday life. I find that, reading a few pages every morning, is a GREAT way to start my day! It reminds me to be grateful and stay positive no matter what is happening in my life. His honest, direct approach to living and positive motivating philosophies leave me feeling inspired and energized, knowing I can change my life for the better. He is a breath of fresh air in a world filled with negative thinkers. It is a must read for anyone who wants to develop an empowered way of thinking and live an empowered life! I LOVE the book!!!

I love Steve Maraboli's wisdom and quotes, his whole philosophy is uplifting, enlightening and positive! I have used this book for my daily devotional and meditative time...It sure makes the day exciting and full of anticipation when you have inspiration and positivity leading the way. Thank you, Steve.

I have shared in my usual review form, parts of his book and hope you will enjoy reading my absolute favorites as well.

Page 19 "Look around you, everything changes, everything on earth is in a continuous state of evolving, refining, improving, adapting, enhancing,...changing. you were not put on this earth to remain stagnant."

"Judging is preventing us from understanding a new truth. Free yourself from the rules of old judgements and create the space for new understanding."

I absolutely take this to heart... it also means we are in a constant state of change as human beings and should look at others in that same light...WOW! Thank you Steve! What a revelation...

His Let Today Be The Day...quotes are excellent!

Let today be the day...
"You look for the good in everyone you meet and respect their journey."
"You let your actions speak and communicate your feelings and intentions."
"You speak only the good you know of other people and encourage others to do the same."
"You stop letting your history interfere with your destiny and awaken to the opportunity to release your greatest self."
"You dedicate yourself to building relationships on the solid foundation or truth and authenticity."

and His How Would Your Life Be Different if...
"You stopped making negative judgmental assumptions about people you encounter?"
"You walked away from gossip and verbal defamation?

Format: Paperback
This seems to be a great book to give to people with comparatively "little" problems, as an encouragement to get over the minor life impediments that cause some to lose focus. In that case, it's a heavily recommended read. However, for anyone going through serious pain, trauma, mental illness, or anything weighty in any other regard, pass on this book. It is a semi-insulting tome dictating to just "get over" all your problems by "leaving them behind," which is brimming with flaccid, generic advice for those whose problems have likely already been diminished and cast aside by others, hence their continued search for the sort of book this purports to be, i.e., one that can actually help them. Deeply unsatisfying, it feigns understanding, while discouraging the reader not to linger in anything too painful; it's the equivalent of sending a get well soon card to a dying friend. If you need pseudo-religious, regurgitated self-help chastisements ("Happiness is not the absence of problems, it's the ability to deal with them," "You must learn to let go. Release the stress. You were never in control anyway," "At the end of the day, let there be no excuses, no explanations, no regrets,"), then Maraboli's book can meet your needs. If you're looking for insight in order to actually heal from deep wounds, then keep shopping.
