This is a wonderful book about a man who gives up a very successful career in the insurance business in order to follow his dream of becoming a writer. By choosing this path he gives up the security of a steady income to enter the uncertain future of being a first time author. Although he and his family struggle to make ends meet, his gamble finally pays off and his first work becomes a national best seller.
This book is also about the main character's desire to spend more quality time with his family, especially his children. Readers will identify with the feelings brought forth as they read this book because many of us know the pain of working so hard that we are not around to see our babies growing up. I recommend this book highly as well as all of Og Mandino's books. A good book to read after "The Choice" is "A Better Way to Live". This book's title is taken from the fictitional title of the book written in "The Choice". It tells the real life story of Og Mandino's own struggle and success in his own life.

Og Mandino delivers a powerful message through the compelling story of Mark Christopher, a "successful" insurance company vice-president who leaves the security of his job to become an inspirational writer.
Anyone who has already made such a leap of faith, or is thinking about stepping out to pursue their true vocation and become the person they were meant to become, will surely benefit from this book. The Choice is not written for the armchair quarterback, but for someone who is sincerely seeking positive change in their life. Mandino weaves lessons between the lines throughout the book.
As an author who has made a choice similar to the fictional Mark Christopher, I found tis book to be quite eerie, memorable and moving.

If you've been afraid of "fear", this story will definitely remind you that our only fear resides in the risks we do not take and regret later. Heartfully written and bathed in love and divine truth . . . we are guided to that which helps us to make a "choice" and when we open up our heart and soul to the needs of others and their greatness, the rewards go well beyond the material world . . . to the celestial and spiritual. Choose to read it and pass it on to someone that you know may benefit, for everyone loves a story written from the "heart".

Og Mandino is one of the most refreshing inspirational writers I've had the honor to read. He speaks from the heart and makes you think...really think about the choices that you have in your daily life. A MUST READ!

Great entertaining book and moving. I first read The Greatest Salesman and now I'm reading Og's other books. Can't believe I'd never heard of him since I've been reading and acting on info like this for decades.

Would highly recommend this if you want no nonsense principles to give you the right mindset for success. Whatever that means to you.
