This book really surprised me. The story was intriguing and comical but mostly inspiring. This really makes you think of how many of us will do things for others but not necessarily for ourselves. It is a great reminder that we need to look after ourselves first so that we can spread joy and happiness to others.

A very clichéd story of self-realization. Sayings were often overused and the there is not much depth to the text.

It is a book that takes the reader on an adventure, a journey. The journey of mind and soul. It's easy to read and hard to put down. The book is a little predictible, I knew right away how it was going to end, but enjoyed reading it to find out the lessons along the way. This book won't take long to read, but will leave the reader with memorable teachings.

Inspiring. Largely holds the same lessons as "The Leader Who Had No Title", but is a lot easier to read, as it works more like a real novel without the blatant teachings from that book. The LWT is more practical to apply though and pushes more towards action.

"There are no extra people alive today. Every single one of us is here for a reason, a special purpose-a mission. Yes, build a beautiful life for yourself and those you love. Yes, be happy and have a lot of fun. And yes, become successful, on your own terms rather than on those suggested to you by society. But-above all else-be significant. Make your life matter. Be of use. This is how each of us can shift from the realm of the ordinary into the heights of the extraordinary."
