“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you would call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much though.” – J. D. Salinger.
Hellos, how are you all doing? I’ve been thinking of doing book reviews for a while from my love of books and well, there is always a starting point! Hope to share with you the most amazing books I come across and the ones you are reading too.
The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari is an interesting non-fiction book that tells the story of this lawyer who was only concerned about work, money, power and prestige. He collapses in a court room due to a severe heart attack after which his doctor told him to either give up law or give up his life. He had spent so much time chasing the big pleasures of life, forgetting the little ones. He chose his life, sold everything he had including his Ferrari and traveled to India which sort of liberated him.
The book talks about choices, that one’s destiny unfolds according to the choices one makes. This is a book that will make you give some thought to your life, goals and dreams and how your daily habits helps you reach those dreams. It is a recommendation to anyone interested in incorporating routines and habits that can transform your life and help you achieve your dreams.
I like how the book explains on the importance of family and spending time with the people we love. I would give it a rating of 8/10. If you are looking for a book to help you on achieving your goals and your daily routines, you can try out this book.
