Book Review- The Secret by Rhonda Byrne

  Today, I will share the review of self-help/motivational book "The Secret" written by Rhonda Byne. This book is based on the concepts like we attract good or bad things into our life and we can attract success, wealth or anything in life by just changing our thought process.

The Secret is a successful book with millions of copies sold worldwide and most of its readers have liked it. I do get the chance to read this book when I am crossing through a bad time in life and my mind was full of negative emotions and thoughts. I found this book very helpful and encouraging to become a person with a positive mindset.

There are many critics of this book who says that this book borrows many things from others and many things are exaggeratly told in it. However, I found this book a good presentation of an idea to think positively and attract abundance in life. To enjoy this book and to get benefit from it, it is important to believe what is said in it.

Now quantum physics says that our thoughts have energy and they are constantly interacting with the universe. This book also highlights the power of such laws and one of the important laws illustrated in this book is "Law of Attraction" which says that whatever is happening in our life, we are attracting it into our life through our thoughts and emotions.

This is a nicely written book which attracts your attention till the end and fills your mind with positive emotions. After reading this book, you will try to avoid negative emotions as much as possible because you will learn that they are causing you harm. You learn the importance of becoming a happy person and attracting more happiness to your life.

Many such things are also told in many other books; however, I liked the way it is told in The Secret book. It is a good book for all people who are feeling depressed or crossing through a bad time in life. Life is all about believing and this book tells us to believe in life and higher spiritual force.

There is no doubt in it that positive thoughts and emotions put a good effect our health and future outcomes. The secret a great motivational book because it tells us to dream and dream big. Though, I can't say that it will work 100% for everyone; however, I am sure that this book will help some who will trust the secrets told in it.

My Review Book - The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference

There are a few books available in the market, which helps you understand many important points about the real life experience and human psychology. The book "The Tipping Point: How little things can make a Big Difference" written by Malcolm Gladwell is also one such book. After reading this book, you come to know about the secret of Tipping Point and how sometimes small things push a big change like the spread of an epidemic.

This book gives you example of many real life examples and case studies to understand the concept of the book. You learn after reading this book that how a few people are responsible for the revival of old brands and how some small events trigger other big events.  This book has a lot of material for your mind; however, the negative point for Indian readers is that all studies are from abroad and some people may find it hard to understand the concepts.

Mostly it is our view that small things, small group of people or small events can't make a big change; however, in this book you come to know about the power of small. This is a good book when it comes to learning something new and to understand social behavior and human psychology. In the book "The Tipping Point" Gladwell highlight that there are few highly active individuals who are responsible for the maximum spread of a news or epidemic. We also come to know about that there are few people who are more connected to others as compared to others.

My rating for this book is 4 out of 5. It contains a great relevant and practical information. This is one book which requires your full concentration and time to read it; otherwise, you may not get the point. This book is based on the observations of Malcolm Gladwell, which he has put forward with the help of examples and case studies.

Moreover this book provides many small stories of the simple men and women like us. We can understand through this book that how our behavior affect others.

Book Review - The Alchemist (You have got this life to chase your dream)

Book Review, The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho,
Today, it is time for another bestseller with 65 million copies sold worldwide. I am going to share my experience of Paulo Coelho's best seller "The Alchemist".  Initially, I didn't do justice to this book because first I bought it late and then, I read it after two years of buying.  Today, I have a regret that why I read this book so late.

The first word which came out of my mouth after this book was what a book? This is one of exceptional books which qualify for the 5 out of 5 rating. The Alchemist is a well written book which presents a great story of a Sheperd boy who sails to Egypt to find the truth of his dream.

During his journey, he faces many difficulties; however, at the end, he finds the greatest treasure, his true love and meaning of life. Today, we live in a world where most of things for us are decided by others. Very few numbers of people actually get the courage to chase their dreams and find the real meaning of their life.

Through, the beautiful story this book tells us many lessons of life. It puts emphases on trusting our dreams and then going after them. The world only recognizes people who reach their dreams while all others just become a history. Moreover, there is a great excitement and enjoyed in completing our dreams. We learn many valuable lessons of life when we go out to find the true meaning of life.

The majority of people never take their dreams seriously and die as ordinary beings. Many people never have the fun and adventure of moving out of their comfort zone. Life is actually much-much bigger than what we assume it. It has many surprises for us and we just need to follow our heart and our dreams.

In review, I don't like to go into the story because it can spoil your experience of reading a good book. The alchemist is a great book and one must have it and then read it. When I started reading this book, then soon I got absorbed in the story and I become so curious about the next event that I completed this book in a few days only.

The Alchemist is a good read for any person who is not clear about the goals of his life. Elder must encourage teenage youth to read this book so that they can become clear about the goals of their life.

I loved this book and learned lots from it. It gives me lots of encouragement to chase my dreams despite the others being against me. I read this book so deeply that I remember the whole story. Whenever I feel down, I start reading this book or imagine the Hero of the story who faced so many difficulties to complete his dreams.

Book review- "Happiness Now" by Andrew Matthews (A Great Picture Book to find the secrets of Happiness)

Book Review, Happiness, Now, Andrew Mathews,
Today, I will share my review of one of my favorite books, i.e. "Happiness Now" by Andrew Mathews. Happiness is the one thing which every person wants desperately in his or her life. When we are happy, then we enjoy our life more than we are unhappy; therefore, it is very important to remain happy in life. Even many philosophers and physiologists have said that happiness is the main driving motive for any person living in this world.

We all do various things in our life to attain happiness and mostly, we remain so much attracted towards happiness that we never want to face any unhappy moment in life. However, we all know this fact that getting happiness and then retaining it is not an easy task, due to this reason, we find most of the people struggling for some moments of happiness.

 This book can provide  a lot of help to the people who are finding it hard to attain happiness in their lives. This is a simple and well written book and comes with the aid of beautiful cartoons. This book offers a good read to all the book lovers. The main carry away point of this book is finding happiness despite grieves and struggle in life and not waiting for the appropriate time to come to feel happy. Every person can expect to learn many good and simple points which can easily make his life happier.

It is sure that every person will see himself in good mood after reading this book, this is one book which I always keep with my myself because whenever I feel down or low, I start reading this book. I love to read this book again and again because every time, I learn something new in it. I do recommend this book for your personal library because this book can be very helpful in lifting your mood.

Happiness Now tells us to celebrate even the small successes of life. It tells that no one is perfect in this world, despite all the problems, we have many things in our life for which we can thank god.  This book gives us a good understanding of life and tells us the secret of remaining happy in every situation.

Book Review- Great Expectations by Charles Dickens (An interesting Emotional Drama)

Great Expectations, Book, Book Review, Charles Dickens,
Today, I am going to share with you my review of a famous and best seller book "Great Expectations" written by Charles Dickens. This book is a Novel which was first published between 1860 to 1861 in a periodical. The present version of the book has new and happier ending where the protagonist meets the main heroine at the end.

As the name suggests, this book is a story of expectations. As we grow old, we cross through many phases of life and during these phases of life, we also had many expectations. Some of our expectations were met and some remained behind as unfulfilled desires.  This is a common story of everyone, we all cross through a sea of expectations throughout our life.

This book tells a great story of a small orphan boy and his expectations of the life. He came across a beautiful small girl and falls in love with her; however, the girl doesn't have the same emotions for him. This Novel presents us secrets and mysteries. There are many good lessons about human emotions, love and expectations defined in this book.

When you read this book, you start absorbing in the story and sometimes, you even start comparing your expectations with the expectations of the Protagonist. The book is so popular that Hollywood movies are based on its story.

The best part of any book is that you start becoming one with the story and you go so deep that you start imagining things. This book presents emotions so strongly in front of us that our own old memories resurface. A human being is an emotional creature; however, it takes a time to understand these emotions and where they are leading us.

I will not go deep into the story of this book because I don't want to spoil your excitement of reading this book. I enjoyed this book very much and I hope that you will also like it.

My Review Book - The Da Vinci Code (Dan Brown) (A food for your mind)

Dan BRown, Book, Book Review, The da Vinci Code,
There are some books which I categorized as the food for the brain and "The Da Vinci Code" is also one of them. The Da Vinci Code is a fictional novel written by Dan Brown in 2003. This is a best seller book with millions of copies sold around the world; however, it has also remained controversial in many countries of the world because of reference of alternative religious theory according to which Zesus Christ has a daughter and he married Mary Magdalene unlike the present belief that he never married and neither he has any child. Due to this reason, this book remained in lot of controversy for showing historical facts in wrong manner.

I don't want to go much deeper into the controversy because I am going to review this book as a murder mystery novel. When you read this book as a book, then just after a few pages this book starts absorbing you in the story and put your mind into action to think about the next outcome. This book is written very well and in a very simple language; therefore, anyone can easily read it and understand it too.

The other good point about this book is that it makes you search about many things like history of Chirstainity, Holy Grail, Mary Magdalene, secret societies etc. The book present a well crafted mystery in front of us and as we read the book, we get involved in this mystery. Sometimes, we ourself become a detective and try to predict what will happen next.

If we read this book as a fictional storyline, then it is a great murder-mystery novel; however, when we associate it with a religion, then we lose the whole enjoyment. Though, I do agree that this book makes you think that there may be certain things which are hidden from the present world; however, we should not go much deeper into it while losing the fun of reading a great book.

We live in a free world and therefore, we must encourage such books which represents the freedom of expression. We should allow the reader to decide and take away from the book what they feel is right for them. In the coming times, all religions across the world will face such difficulties were people will ask questions about many unanswered questions.

I read this book as a book and not as a religious controversy; though, the controversy in this book pushed me to buy it and read it. As a book, it's a great book which offers you everything from a good story, bold character, fun, excitement and food for your brain.

Today, we live in very stressful and competitive world, we work hard daily to survive on the day to day basis. The biggest disadvantage of this approach is that we stop living a natural and healthy life while becoming a robot who wake up everyday to perform the same jobs again and again. One day when we wake up, then we realize that we have lost everything to gain material wealth of the world. We may have enough enough money at the end, but hardly peace of mind and a sound health.

This book, through the medium of a fable tries to give some unique lesson for living a healthy and fulfilling life in the present stressful world. Today’s world is running very fast and therefore most the people are not able to get time for their own betterment. We remain highly busy is achieving goals and earning money; however, we forget to consider about health.

At some time, when people have everything in the world, but unfortunately, they do not have health to enjoy all this. The Monk who sold his Ferrari is a book written with this basic purpose in mind to educate people about giving full importance to all important elements of life like health and peace. It focuses on the benefits of good health and peaceful life. This book also gives emphases on ancient wisdom which is available with sages from many centuries.

Robin Sharma has presented a number of facts very logically in the form a story. The book is able to maintain interest of its readers and definitely one can improve his life by maintaining a balance between health and work. All these qualities qualify this book for everyone’s personal library. If someone wants to learn what is the best way of story telling and delivering a positive message, then he must read this book.

By reading this book, we learn the eastern wisdom through a good story. Such books are very important to read because they help us to understand the true meaning of life. Today, every person is chasing his goals and wealth at the cost of health and tranquility. All such people only repent at the later stage when their health is completely gone and they have no happiness. I hope all people who will read this book, they will never commit this mistake in life.

Leadership is the topic on which numbers of books have been written in the past and in the present also many people are putting forwards new views on the leadership. Despite the availability of so much material on leadership, it sometimes becomes very difficult to find a good read on this topic. This book by renowned author and motivational speaker Mr. John C.

Book Review- Living with the Himalayan Masters

Book, Review, Swami Rama, Living with the Himalayan Masters,
Today, I will share with my review of Swami Rama's famous book "Living with the Himalayan Masters". I found this book very interesting, simple to read, with beautiful presentations and pictures. The good point about this book is that we can learn something from each page of the book. We get a great motivation after reading this book to achieve new heights in life. Today, we know very less about the Himalayas and its mystics and here this book comes as a great help to know many new things.

India history is very old and in this history, we can find references of many cultures, traditions, religions and wisdoms, however, today the main problem with most of the Indian youth is that they have forgotten the importance of ancient India cultures. One of the main attractions of our culture is a life lived by our great mystics and masters of the Himalayas. For many centuries, this tradition was very much prevalent in India, according to which people visited Himalayas for becoming one with the supreme consciousness.

These great masters and mystics followed the path of renunciation (leaving the comforts and pains of the world). We all must have heard some of the stories associated with these great masters, however, due to lack of information and knowledge, we mostly find it hard to know the real truth. For an ordinary person, it is very difficult to exactly know or understand the life of our saints and masters. Most of the times, these mystic were considered as mad, psychics, frauds because we do not know or understand the realities associated with them.

This book “Living with the Himalayan Masters” is written by one of the great Himalayan Master Swami Rama who also remained Shankaracharya of Karvirpithan during 1949-51. He also travelled most parts of India, Nepal, Tibet and lived in mountain monasteries. During his life, he also got experience to meet a number of eminent personalities and unknown sages of the Himalaya. In this book, Swami Rama reveals a number of secrets like Can a person become alive after death? Is it is possible for a person to willingly change his body or Can anyone select time of his death? This book revolves around the real experience of Rama and his path of renunciation.

This book clearly provides a lot of insight on the great history and culture of India and provides an inside look into the lives of Himalayan sages, which is otherwise completely inaccessible to us. Reading this book is also very important because this book tells us to conquer number of our inner enemies like lust, greed, anger, jealousy etc. This book is published by The Himalayan Institute Press, Pennsylvania and costing from Rs 260-330. Overall, this book provides a good resource of valuable information which we can only learn after deep mediation and renunciation.
