Thought it was too cliche

What would have made The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari better?

Though the story makes you realize that the daily mundane things aren't what your life should be about, and that you need to always remind yourself of the important things in life, to me the story was presented in a conventional and maybe not so interesting way.

Would you ever listen to anything by Robin Sharma again?

Probably not.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

It voided me of patience. The events and the discussions were very predictable, nothing new and engaging.

Much hype for rehashed ideas...

Even though I agree with Robin Sharma's intentions, I was bitterly disappointed with this book. After seeing the book in stores for ages, I finally decided to try it out. As a fellow reviewer noted, this book certainly does not live up to the hype it generated and is basically a poor summary of Anthony Robbins' personal development programs. Not only does Sharma blatantly plagiarise other authors' work, he follows an illogical 'cut & paste' formula that doesn't really work for me. Needless to say, it contains really good elements, but instead of explaining them (and the rationale behind them) fully, he over-embellishes the importance of them by using adjectives. Sadly, this book seems to similar to the style used in 'The Secret'. If you liked that, you'll like this. Not my taste- I'd much prefer listening to Robbins, Covey, Blanchard or even Dale Carnegie...

I so wanted to enjoy this book

The premise of this book is great. A high flying, fast living attorney has a heartache and wakes up to the fact that he has to change his life. He searches for the secrets of happiness, contentment and personal enlightenment. After he finds the answers, he returns to impart this new knowledge with others - the first being the author of this book who used to be his protege. The parables and metaphors are engaging and the lessons being taught are valuable and insightful but oh my God I found the author to be so irritating. The subject of the book is about finding enlightenment and he constantly makes unfunny stupid jokes that you find yourself constantly cringing at. And even the 'monk' thinks his jokes are ridiculous. Unfortunately I found myself wanting this book to be over as quickly as possible because the awkward jokes and silly statements and questions posed by the author were really getting on my nerves. So purchase this with the knowledge that you might finish it with a feeling of relief thinking 'thank God that's over'.
