Although I am not extremely well read, this has to be one of the 10 most important books ever compiled. It should be noted that this is not a book in the classic sense but rather a compilation of essays and chapters from individual texts written at different periods in history, by different authors and with different specialties and backgrounds.
Something very stranged happened to me while reading this book. While reading the chapter written by Benjamin Franklin I began to feel that Mr. Franklin was actually sitting in the room across from me and speaking directly to me. It was pretty weird. His chapter to me is the best in the book.
Although I am a firm believer in education I am equally firm in my belief that our educational system (overall) does more harm than good. A sentiment echoed by one of the books contributors. But contained within the pages of this text are all the knowledge you REALLY need to succeed in this world regardless of race, gender, religion, economic background or intelligence.
Although not well read overall I have read a considerable number of self-help books. This one is the most comprehensive in scope and offers the most understandable and practical approaches towards achievement that can be applied to any area of life.
A must read for anyone truly desiring success. To me the amazing thing about the world today is that we have access to the knowledge of the ages yet so few of us avail ourselves of that knowledge. So many of the answers are there yet so few will invest the meager effort to acquire them. For a few dollars and a few hours you can have it all if you are only willing to take it.

Format: Paperback
In November of 1996, I was "hearing" a inner voice within me that, looking back now, was calling me to put away aimlessnes, mediocrity and an "average" existence, and to become a person of purpose and an achiever. I began answering that voice by purchasing this book.
Three years later, I can look back, satisfied that many negative attributes and influences I used to carry with me have been extirpated from my being. While I am nowhere near my final destination of the road to achievment, I'm simply a lot better than I was before.
There are an unlimited number of tools available for those who seek personal and professional development. Few, however, can match the works of Og Mandingo. But, rather than take my word for it, that is a discovery best made by yourself.

Format: Paperback
This book is like nothing else I have ever read. It is so practically simple in its presentation, so logical, and so applicable to life that there is no way everyone reading it won't be "wow-ed" by it at every single chapter. Read it as Mandino recommends: at night before going to bed. Your subconscious mind will absorb the information and suddenly everything becomes clear to you. It's unbelievable. Read it and give it to everyone you know and love. It's an absolutely awesome book, and every chapter is applicable and stands alone, but read it in the sequence it's presented at bedtime. You'll be glad you did. You will not ever think again that anything is impossible. READ IT !!!!

I first read this book in 1984. And have regularly read it since then. It covers alot of material & gives you a variety of authors insight with out having to buy 50 books. I recently replaced my original copy b/c it was in shreds from being read so much. If I were forced to take ONE BOOK with my to a deserted island - for the rest of my life - THIS is definitely the book I would take with me...... I have given this book as a gift many times - EVERYONE I have given it to LOVES it as much as I do. Do yourself a favor - order & READ this book TODAY!

Format: Paperback
I have read several of Og Mandino's books and this one is the culmination of principles that anyone can and should use for rules on the road of life. It should be required reading for all college students and like Dale Carnigie's book "How to Win Friends and Influence People" should be read once a year for good general health and mental well being.

A great book for anyone in any situation, but especially useful if you are feeling discouraged or down. No matter what you are thinking about, or what situation you find yourself in, there's something to help you here, whether it be to help you gain new perspective, get out of a rut, or just feel better. I highly recommend this book to anyone whose life is not perfect!

This is the book where I learned---really learned how to handle my life from people who had gone where I was trying to go. This book is put together so well and the authors that Og Mandino chosed to represent each criteria was so excellent...I feel my education was finally complete with this book.

He with the help of his friends have compiled a unique piece of literature that you too will refer to as your "degree" in higher learning. What an experience!

Format: Paperback
The greatest self-help author in the world presents the ultimate success book. It contains a complete course on how to succeed, taught by 50 renowed experts in their fields. This book will advance you lesson by lesson to the world of exceptional achievement. Life is just a game but one cannot participate in this mysterious act of living with any hope of satisfaction unless one understands a few simple rules. This book provides those simple rules that will encourage fortune to smile upon you and bestow upon you a more generous portion of fame, money, power, position and freedom. In history, as in life, "only success counts". If possible, read each chapter prior to bed time. Marvellous things happen when you put your subconscious mind to work. There is a danger that you will read this book as just another entertainment. To avoid this, have a pen on your hand. When you read a line or a paragraph that is meaningful to you, underline it. You might also wish to draw a star next to certain powerful suggestions or methods that catch your fancy, or an exclamation mark or a question mark if you don't agree with them. This book consists of 50 chapters and it is impossible to delineate them all in this review. Instead, I will highlight 5 of the more salient aspects of the book. They are: (1). Personal success must exist inside if it is to exist at all. It cannot be composed of outward signs of appearance , but only by intangible personal values stemming from a mature philosophy; (2). In this country of ours everyone has the opportunity to make more of himself, in his own environment, with his own skill, with his own energy, and with his own friends; (3). By paying more wages than the average Henry Ford received more service and better service than the average.Read more ›
