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...
