4.0 out of 5 stars Read for the amazing factual and inspiring trivia inside!
Reviewed in India on June 23, 2019
A self-help book with a critical message - "obstacles are meant to be overcome".

What hooked me are the trivia & knowledge points in the book. (A treasure trove for trivia collectors like me!)

- Rockefeller RETURNED money to his investors (avoiding "mad crowd" speculation). He went on to control 90% of the Oil Market!

- John Gless, the 1st US astronaut to orbit the earth controlled his heartbeat to under 100 per min for 1 month!

- Nietzsche "Being superficial - taking things at a 1st glance is the most profound approach."

- Richard Branson "Biz opportunities are like buses; there is always another coming around."

- "Getting a Dog - they're a constant reminder of how pleasant the present is."

- The INCREDIBLE story of Demosthenes (Greatest orator of Athens)

- Under the comb, the tangle & the straight path are the same - Heraclitus

- James Garfield - A US President studied by doing Janitor services in his college

- Steve Jobs obsession with making the inside of his products beautiful even though no one saw them

- The impressive Latin phrases inside!

- "Sitzfleisch (German) - Staying Power. Winning by sticking to your seat until it's over."

- Haitian proverb "Behind mountains are more mountains" (it's never over)
