5.0 out of 5 stars Forget College. Everything you really need to know is here., 30 May 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: University of Success (Paperback)
Although I am not extremely well read, this has to be one of the 10 most important books ever compiled. It should be noted that this is not a book in the classic sense but rather a compilation of essays and chapters from individual texts written at different periods in history, by different authors and with different specialties and backgrounds.
Something very stranged happened to me while reading this book. While reading the chapter written by Benjamin Franklin I began to feel that Mr. Franklin was actually sitting in the room across from me and speaking directly to me. It was pretty weird. His chapter to me is the best in the book.
Although I am a firm believer in education I am equally firm in my belief that our educational system (overall) does more harm than good. A sentiment echoed by one of the books contributors. But contained within the pages of this text are all the knowledge you REALLY need to succeed in this world regardless of race, gender, religion, economic background or intelligence.
Although not well read overall I have read a considerable number of self-help books. This one is the most comprehensive in scope and offers the most understandable and practical approaches towards achievement that can be applied to any area of life.
A must read for anyone truly desiring success. To me the amazing thing about the world today is that we have access to the knowledge of the ages yet so few of us avail ourselves of that knowledge. So many of the answers are there yet so few will invest the meager effort to acquire them. For a few dollars and a few hours you can have it all if you are only willing to take it.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book, especially for quick "pick-me-up" when discourag, 12 Jan. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: University of Success (Paperback)
A great book for anyone in any situation, but especially useful if you are feeling discouraged or down. No matter what you are thinking about, or what situation you find yourself in, there's something to help you here, whether it be to help you gain new perspective, get out of a rut, or just feel better. I highly recommend this book to anyone whose life is not perfect!

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE MOST READ BOOKS ON SUCCESS FOR LIFE, 29 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: University of Success (Paperback)
This book is like nothing else I have ever read. It is so practically simple in its presentation, so logical, and so applicable to life that there is no way everyone reading it won't be "wow-ed" by it at every single chapter. Read it as Mandino recommends: at night before going to bed. Your subconscious mind will absorb the information and suddenly everything becomes clear to you. It's unbelievable. Read it and give it to everyone you know and love. It's an absolutely awesome book, and every chapter is applicable and stands alone, but read it in the sequence it's presented at bedtime. You'll be glad you did. You will not ever think again that anything is impossible. READ IT !!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A cornucopia of success principles for life., 5 Oct. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: University of Success (Paperback)
I have read several of Og Mandino's books and this one is the culmination of principles that anyone can and should use for rules on the road of life. It should be required reading for all college students and like Dale Carnigie's book "How to Win Friends and Influence People" should be read once a year for good general health and mental well being.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am a graduate of this "University"!, 17 Feb. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: University of Success (Paperback)
This is the book where I learned---really learned how to handle my life from people who had gone where I was trying to go. This book is put together so well and the authors that Og Mandino chosed to represent each criteria was so excellent...I feel my education was finally complete with this book.

He with the help of his friends have compiled a unique piece of literature that you too will refer to as your "degree" in higher learning. What an experience!

when i first picked up this book i was not impressed, but as i read more and more , i found most chapters contained something which helped guide me towards a more fulfilling existence, which i think is the purpose of the book . this book will not get up and make you a better person , it is not your master , you are your master . this book is full of little hints on how to gain mastery over your own self.
