'The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari' - Book Review

'The Monk who sold his Ferrari' is a fable about fulfilling your dreams and reaching your destiny. It is one of the most sold out books in the world today, and has been widely appreciated for being so simple yet promising. Author Robin S Sharma, a Canadian Lawyer and a Leadership Expert has done a superb job writing this book. The story is about Julian Mantle, a litigation lawyer who despite of being immensely rich fails to live a happy and peaceful life. He suffers a heart attack due to his unbalanced and chaotic lifestyle. He suffers from anxiety and amid critical spiritual and mental crisis, travels to the Himalayas in search of inner peace. He stays there to learn lessons for healthy and purposeful life. He then returns back to his country and shares the precious values and secrets of living a peaceful, yet rewarding materialistic life. 11 chapters are nicely planned and the approach is very neat and practical.
