The story is built around the idea of a master teaching his 'protégé' about enlightenment...which could have been great. However... it's as if the 'student' has a very low level of knowledge and intelligence - has he ever opened a book?
I was expecting this book to be above average, but I can't say that any advice, as well as the vocabulary, have resonated with me.
Although I did not learn anything new, I must admit that the writer has made the concepts highly accessible to all.
Overall I enjoyed it very much. The virtues caused me to think about my own life and where I'm trying to go. The ideas really aren't new if you follow Tony Robbins, Jim Rohn; however, Robin Sharma has done an excellent job presenting these ideas and virtues in a new way.
Personally, I think it is a worthwhile read for anyone who is trying to improve their lives and those around them.
Still a very nice read.
