This book was recommended to me by a friend. I picked it up, read it and shared it with another friend. I immediately went to the bookstore to purchase several other books written by Mandino. Easy, concise and motivational. Those are the three words I used to describe the book when I loaned it out. This was 3 weeks ago. Since that time several people have purchased some of his books via Amazon (unfortunately for me I discovered Amazon.com after I made my purchases!!) as well as at different bookstores. I will recommend this book to all of the young people I know. As a matter of a fact I may purchase duplicate copies and distribute them myself. I believe that this author can make tremendous differences in the lives of all people, particularily those young people that are confused, lost and feeling unimportant!! Thanks to Mandino for great literature!!

Even though this book is great by anyone's standards, it is not Og Mandino's best. It is very similar to "The Greatest Salesman in the World" (also by Mandino) but it somehow does not live up to the eternal masterpiece. The story itself is as striking as "Salesman" but the 10 principles are rather lethargically added to the end and do not carry the power of the ones in "Salesman". If you already own "Salesman" this is a worthwhile investment for sure, if not get "The Greatest Salesman in the World" instead. Whichever one you choose it will change your life that I can guarantee.
Ps. Anyone else notice Anthony Robins copies Mandino's principles exactly and makes it more detailed?

Format: Paperback
A magnificent fictional story about Zacchaeus from the Bible and how he became successful using what is called in the book as "The Commandments of Success." The commandments are the guiding principles which led Zacchaeus to financial and spiritual prosperity, in which he reveals to the masses upon being begged to do so. They are simple yet effective principles that can help lead anyone to achieve their goals, whatever they may be. As Og Mandino presents to you his commandments, he does so in a splendid and marveling way with its Biblical characters and references.

I have read everyone of Og Mandinos Books and all I can say is that he writes with brilliance, clarity, enthusiasm, and spirit. You can never go wrong with any of his books. He points out the path to success and motivates the spirit within to achieve all that we as human beings are capable. He helped me to tap into my innate genuis and create a life of prosperity and creativity. If you havent raed his books, start now and your journey of the spirit will begin. He was a born writer and even after his passing continues to have a great influence on many people old and young. He truly lived a purposeful and divine life. Go buy all his books and enjoy the growth and enlightenment. After that Buy my Book " Your daily Walk with the Great Minds of the Past and Present". Enjoy and rememeber you are capable of great things in your life.

the books were advertised to be in almost new condition and all three looks as if they had barely escaped a fire smoked room....dingy colored and not fit to share with anyone. ):

While I love all things Og Mandino, this one isn't the top of the list. That goes to Greatest Miracle in the World. That said, it's still a great book.
