Everyone loves a good fable, and this is certainly one. The protagonist is Julian Mantle, a high-profile attorney with a whacked-out schedule and a shameful set of spiritual priorities. Of course it takes a crisis (heart attack) to give Mantle pause. And pause he does--suddenly selling all his beloved possessions to trek India in pursuit of a meaningful existence. The Himalayan gurus along the way give simple advice, such as, "What lies behind you and what lies before you is nothing compared to what lies within you." Yet it is easy to forgive the story's simplicity because each kernel of wisdom is framed to address the persistent angst of Western white-collar professionals. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
"A captivating story that teaches as it delights."--Paulo Coelho, author of "The Alchemist""Nothing less than sensational. This book will bless your life."--Mark Victor Hansen, coauthor of "Chicken Soup for the Soul""Robin Sharma has created an enchanting tale that incorporates the classic tools of transformation into a simple philosophy of living. A delightful book that will change your life."--Elaine St. James, author of "Simplify Your Life "and "Inner Spirituality"

It tells a fable that makes no sense originally but it's used as a reminder of the things that will help you live a better life. Each of the main things on the fable represent an idea and the fable helps you remember all of them.
To me the books is already worth it just with the first chapter. It is helping me avoid, or at least kick the negative thoughts out of my mind. The book explains, how our mind is like a garden and depending on your thoughts you can have a beautiful garden or one full of weed. I have started with a pretty ugly garden but I'm already working on improving it.
That's just the beginning, then it goes from there, giving more wisdom with every chapter.
Please, if you are a negative person, you need to read this book.
I've read several auto-help and motivational genre but beware...This in not an auto help book. Thus that was what kept me reading page after page. This book brings the best of you and makes you reflect on how you run your life and what you take away from it. How much time you dedicate making the best of your life and career? Finally this book does not give you an unilateral philosophical perspective of life, it actually helps you create routines that might guide you through a path of an inspiring and successful life.
I recommend this book to the ones that are actively looking to develop themselves as human beings while having consistent success along the way.
Still a very nice read.
