The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari
This is the first self-help book I have read. And I picked up this only because it's so famous, and well, the title always intrigued me. Well, it's a self-help book fitted into a fictional framework. But don't pick it up to derive any pleasure from the fiction. The fiction part only consists in a super successful lawyer getting disillusioned with life, going out in search of wisdom and peace and finding these from a secret group of hermits in Himalayas. He then returns to America to share his wisdom with others. He begins this by enlightening his best friend. The rest of the book is spent in this enlightening lesson.

However, the book's messages come across as clear and easy to understand. They are simple messages, simply told. The Author Robin S Sharma gives seven main life goals and assures that if you master these, you'd master your life and be happy. The goals are simple but make a lot of sense. For example, the author says that one must never let a negative thought enter one's mind. Mind is like a garden. Negative thoughts are like weeds that spoil the beauty and fertility of the garden. Keep them away, pluck them away, and replace them with positive thoughts.

The messages are simple, the language is simple and conversational, and the main and important points are often reported for easy retention. Not only that, they are also summarized at the end of the chapter and the book for easy revision. Besides, the book has many beautiful quotable quotes that make the reading a pleasure. My favourite is: 'The purpose of like is a life of purpose.'

Author of general fiction novel Dream's Sake
