Everyone loves a good fable, and this is certainly one. The protagonist is Julian Mantle, a high-profile attorney with a whacked-out schedule and a shameful set of spiritual priorities. Of course it takes a crisis (heart attack) to give Mantle pause. And pause he does--suddenly selling all his beloved possessions to trek India in pursuit of a meaningful existence. The Himalayan gurus along the way give simple advice, such as, "What lies behind you and what lies before you is nothing compared to what lies within you." Yet it is easy to forgive the story's simplicity because each kernel of wisdom is framed to address the persistent angst of Western white-collar professionals. --Gail Hudson -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.
"The book is about finding out what is truly important to your real spiritual self rather than being inundated with material possessions." Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon) "A captivating story that teaches as it delights." Paulo Coelho "[Its] principles have been fascinating and there were shared principles from writers such as Robin Sharma and Deepak Chopra. How does all that impact on a game of rugby? I can't answer that. All I know is it's enough to help me to proceed in a way that makes me happy enough to go out there and be proud of who I am and what I hope I can bring to this team."

The eleven chapters are meticulously planned and flow seamlessly from one to the next.
Julian Mantle, a very successful lawyer was the epitome of success. He had achieved everything most of us could ever want, professional success with an seven figure income, a grand mansion in a neighborhood inhabited by celebrities, a private jet, a summer home on a tropical island and his prized possession a shiny red Ferrari parked in the center of his driveway. Suddenly he has to come terms with the unexpected effects of his unbalanced lifestyle.
Following his heart attack Julian Mantle had sold all his property (Yes, his Ferrari too) and left for India. The author tells us about Julian's Indian odyssey, how he met the sages of Sivana who had a life changing effect on him. Julian Mantle shares his story of transformation, his secrets of a happy and fulfilling life with his friend John. Julian describes Sivana- a small place located in the Himalayas, the land of rose covered huts, placid blue waters with white lotuses floating, youth and vitality, beautiful glowing faces, fresh and exotic fruits. He tells John about the sages of Sivana who knew all secrets of how to live life happily and how to fulfill one's dreams and reach one's destiny.
For the reader who might be in the rat race for material success and money, this book might be food for thought. But the message is a trifle too clichéd and the lectures too pedantic for the reader who is more or less conversant with the principles and insights garnered by Julian Mantle from the sages of Sivana. The presentation in the form of a story redeems the book to some extent. The book might perhaps be satisfactory for readers who are unfamiliar with and hungry for oriental wisdom. But - haven`t we all already learnt in trainings, seminars and workshops about time management, kaizen, 5Ks etc. how to improve and celebrate ourselves more and work in a team and communicate accordingly etc? The book is a guideline, an enhancer or elevator - for me a reminder of all those things we have already learnt but then forget. All in all, a book of wisdom - wisdom we all carry in us but do not really follow, cannot fulfil or want to fulfil but are the unusual individual or the rare occasion in the mass of our global working structure.
Other concepts, like kaizen, were interesting, but didn't talk enough about the philosophy of the idea.
All in all, the concepts expressed in the book seem to all come from some non-existant religious sect, rather than from the author's life. I know that the ideas are expressed in a story to make them more easily absorbed, but the effect seems to obscure the real potential of some of the concepts in the book.
