I was prompted to write this review based on a number of negative reviews I read on this page about the book.

One reader actually said he read it twice with out getting the point-or much out of it.

Og Mandino's is one with a difference-it is not what you can get out of it that matters ( he is not really trying to impart knowledge in the real sense) it is what the book can impart into your subconscious mind that makes it different.

As one reviewer explained the best way you can acquire maximum benefit from book is by following the recommended procedure-reading each chapter for 30 days, three times daily and not turning to the next chapter until you have completed the preceding one.

I know this might sound strange and a waste of time (we are talking about 270 days here) but it is indeed worth the while.

If you go about it this way you will start noticing a change -have a more positive attitude to life-persist more and wake up with more vigor.

What you have read will keeping seeping through you conscious to your subconscious (especially when you face tough situations) and this will inspire you handle life better.

I personally read the book in 1993 - I could not believe that there was such a wonderful book in existence and it really changed my life>

How I wish more of us could learn to inspire and motivate like Og.

He definitely got me thinking about going into inspiration motivation.

I've had this book for some time now. It was a gift from my mother that just sat in my desk until I decided to give it a chance. I can't beleive I had written this treasure off as just another self-help book. Since I've read it I look at things with a little more optimism, and a liitle more zest. The scrolls in this book inspire you to live life to it's fullest, and be successfull in both you're career and you're personal life. It dosn't matter if you're religous or not, this book will brighten your outlook on everything.

The book is a tale of the greatest salesman of his country. He bears the secrets of this talent until he finds one noble & worthy enough of this knowledge. These secrets are locked in a vault amongst the pages of a scroll. Through out the tale these guidelines are revealed.
I found this book compeling and inspirational. So much so that I went back though it with my laptop to write quotes from it that I could use in every day conversation and my life. I was left with three pages. Enough said I think.
I eagerly wait to read more titles from Og mandino. Worth the read definitely.

Anyone who has read self help books will know the themes that they ALL peddle: think bigger, try harder, don't give up, count your blessings, think positive etc. And most people will know that they are pretty hard to follow in reality. The success of any individual self-help book will depend on how successfully the author can get the truisms into your mind. That in itself is dependent on how you relate to the author and his/her style. So rating such books is difficult and not all that useful. The book is OK and, of course, if you actually follow the rules you will experience some changes in attitude. But if you are non-American you are likely to cringe quite badly at times too. Especially the audio book which starts with "I'm the luckiest man alive" speech and moves to "DEAR friend...let me take you by the hand and..." - it's pretty toe curling.

I was really disappointed in the contents of the book. Think I had imagined there would be some great wisdom within but sadly and maybe just for me it did nothing. I ended up skipping through it even though it's a small book. It just didn't resonate - sorry.

If you are just starting a new business that requires you to sell your services to others, especialy if you are going to the client and not having the client come to you or your store, then this book is a must. If you have already experienced some defeats and don't know if sales is the life for you, then read this book! It is more of a soul searching book to see if you're truely up to the choices you 've made. Once you're inspired by its contents go on to more detailed books on selling techniques like 'How to Master the Art of Selling' by Tom Hopkins. My best wishes to you and may you're choices be yours - Jim Brown, Entrepreneur/Salesman

Every once in a while we all read a book that has a profound influence on the way we think about what we do and how we live. This is such a book and not just for sales people. Anybody whose job involves dealing with people will benefit from this insightful, humane and deeply spiritual book.
Buy it and put the ideas into practice. They are fundamentals that can't fail you. Inspirational stuff.

This book is essential reading for those involved in sales, marketing or management. It focuses on getting the reader to "hard wire" a positive and an empathetic approach to business rather than attempting to teach sales techniques.
