La idea y mensaje que intenta transmitir no está mal pero la forma de hacerlo me ha parecido un poco aburrida.
The book tells the story of a man who was obsessed with work and success and one day was suddenly hit by a massive heart attack. Obviously, from that point onwards his life deeply changes, as well as his perspective of life.
Mr. Sharma writes like an excited priest or a minister while preaching to his congregation and makes a lot of promises (after reading this book you’ll become younger, healthier, happier, wiser etc etc). I wonder who is RS’s target. A former CEO or successful business man (as the Monk was in his former life)?. Don’t think so. A young guy stepping up his career? Naaah, very unlike. Sometimes it seems to me that is audience is made of dummy children, like this Mr John, the middle-class lawyer whom the monk tells his enlightening experience (sort of modern “Dante-Vigilio” model).
In the last chapter Sharma is really boring and the three million copies sold around the world really upset me.
When I bought the Monk I also bought another RS’s book (The Leader Who Had No Title). Double mistake.
Titolo originale: The monk who sold his Ferrari
Quite boring. Seems too much similar story and techniques read before already.
