I became a die-hard fan of Robin Sharma after reading his book "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari". I pre-ordered this book and was very excited to read his latest book. This book follows the same pattern as his earlier books (i.e) blend the life teachings in an interesting story. I could see a big difference. This book is more of a story which explains the teachings than the teachings explicitly. Each portion of the story comes with a summary. The story goes like this...

Jonathan Laundry is a hardworking automobile designer who struggles to find a balance between his work life and personal life. He is separated from his wife Annisha and his son Adam. His life is in turmoil. Suddenly, his mom forces him to meet Julian Mantle, his cousin and the hero of the previous book. Julian makes him travel around the world to the sensual tango halls of Buenos Aires, the haunting catacombs of Paris, the gleaming towers of Shanghai and the staggeringly beautiful Taj Mahal in India and meet his friends to collect the talismans. Each talisman and the encounter with Julian's friends teach him the life lessons that is very much needed for him to save his family and become successful in his life. Here is a gist of the teachings...

The Power of Authenticity
The most important gift we can give ourselves is the commitment to living our authentic life.We must break free of the seductions of society and live life on our own terms, under our own values and aligned with our original dreams.We must explore the deep-seated, unseen hopes, desires, strengths and weaknesses that make us who we are. Every decision we make, every step we take, must be informed by our commitment to living a life that is true and honest and authentic to ourselves and ourselves alone.

Format: Hardcover
This book uses a format which is hardly unique. That is it tells a story, almost a little morality tale, and blends in various universal truths or lessons. There is nothing which is new or unique in these 'revelations', but it is fair to say that it does not do any harm to remind ourselves of them once in a while.

The story revolves around a salesman who has clearly lost his way in life and has lost his sense of what should be his priorities. He is sent on a mission around the globe to pick up nine different talismans from diverse places, each of which has a message attached to it. As a story, it is not the most riveting, but I have read worse. As a travelogue it is actually quite interesting in parts and the few places which I have visited are described in a way that I would consider authentic.

As previously mentioned there are no great revelations here and most of the message is common sense along the lines of relentless pursuit of material wealth does not bring happiness, confront your fears, make progress one step at a time etc. This is the fourth `monk who sold his ferrari' book by the author and I imagine that whilst the first may have had an impact, the subsequent offerings have been a restatement, with slightly different presentation, of the same core material. Not having read the other volumes, this may be somewhat judgmental and rather cynical and I stand to be corrected by someone who has read them all.

This is not the first of this sort of book which I have read, and all in all I was a lot more enthusiastic about The Celestine Prophecy. However, clearly there is a demand for the Monk since, apparently over five million of them have been sold and I imagine that for certain people, if they read it at a particular stage in their lives, it could be quite pivotal in refocusing them.

Through his educational storytelling Robin Sharma takes us around the world to teach us the key principles of life. Following in the footsteps of his other "Monk" books, we get to learn those principles by following a story of a person dealing with their own issues in life. Beautiful descriptions of places all around the world (which I am sure are taken from Robin's own travels as an author and speaker) are a perfect backdrop to the story of discovery. Having already visited half the places in the book, it made me want to visit the other half, but I am still waiting for Robin to send me on a quest to pick up talisman in those cities :-)

For those who are at crossroads in their life or not happy with their work-life balance I thoroughly recommend this book!

I am a big fan of Robin Sharma but I have found in the past that his every book since "The Monk who sold his Ferrari" was a touch below expectation. When I finally got around to reading this book in the first 5-6 pages I got a feeling that this was again the same repetition of his earlier books but then the scene changed drastically.

Without giving away too much, I will say that this book is a journey around the world, literally with a fascinating character & some wonderful life lessons learnt along the way.

Along with these life lessons, I learnt a lot about the places described in this book & I want to travel them someday :)

A real good one from Robin after a long time.

Everybody needs inspiration and so did I. Of-course, there are none better than your mom and dad. But as usual you just don't understand when they give it for free and with their heart and soul till you miss them.

My journey was to find one in daily life. I went on asking friends and family for help ( though succinctly) assuming that somebody would get the hint and guide me in my journey of life.

As I was already hooked on books - and a lot of books - My personal library includes a lot on management, computer science, programming, religious, health, martial arts. I just added self help/personal growth and hit among many good authors. Though now I have been influenced by many ( I really mean many) , for now I will just mention one author who moved my core and made me rely on myself and who taught me that following simple daily routines is more than enough to take control of your life and propel ahead.

The guide is none other than Robin Sharma whose two books worth mentioning are Who Will Cry When You Die? and The Secret Letters Of The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari.

"Who Will Cry When You Die" was one of the first I picked up and moved by the simple inspirations and notes that one should value more in my day. I did read this book innumerable times and follow just few of the values/guidance to this date since years now. Some followings are just random or whenever I recall.

While I do follow some notes from Robin's other guides like `The Leader Who Had No Title" and some of his audio tapes, I feel that "The Secret Letters.." is one of his best guides and worth to everyone of all ages. Robins guidance to live your dreams is too simple to fail.
