Book Review
My take on the book
Overall Rating
Readability Score
I read this book about 5 times now. I own it in hard copy and audio. Must be one of the all-time best books for me. A truly simple concept that should be taught to everyone. I think about this book a lot still and talk to my children about it. Got my eldest to read it when she turned 17, and will do the same for my other two kids. Life is not about the big achievements (even though it is nice to get there too), it is all about the little daily actions that put you on the right path in every part of your life! It doesn't matter where you are in life, start applying the principles every day and you'll turn your life into a fantastic journey!
Overall rating of book out of 5:
5 - One of the best ever
