awesome book

It was a Saturday evening around 5:55 PM, my daily office closing time, when my mobile pinged. That mobile notification brought mail with two great news for us.
1) We got mail from Pengium India to offer us a chance to review a book
2) The book was none other than Gaur Gopal Das, who's videos are being viral every now and then, refered by many of my friends on social media.
So it was obvious that we were not gonna say no to such a golden opportunity.

Though we had said yes, we were a little bit tensed as the book belonged to a spiritual/mental self-help genre, which I personally not prefer. But I was proved wrong just like his videos. Gaur Gopal Das has used a unique concept. He has narrated his incident from his personal experience. The story started with Gaur Gopal's visit to an elite (super rich) couple's house. Harry (husband) went to drop Gaur Gopal after lunch. They stuck in traffic during the trip, at that time Harry confessed his situation to Gaur Gopal, that was when the story started. From there started a series of serious thoughts bundled with amazing short stories or narrations that one can correlate. Gaur Gopal has wonderfully used the object in which they were traveling to explain things. The content was divided into 4 sections, just like 4 tyres of a car, which according to Gaur Gopal Das makes our life easy and satisfied. These 4 tyres are
1) Personal life
2) Relationship
3) Worklife
4) Social contributions

Even if one tyre gets punctured one cannot drive safely or survive the good drive. Our life depends upon the balance of these tyres. With each section, Harry's doubts were resolved by Gaur Gopal by proper reasoning and spirituality.

Good points
1) Easy to follow language and medium pace
2) A wonderful amalgamation of self-help and short stories
3) Applicable to each and every person, especially in India where people judge first and act later
4) Question provided at end of each chapter which can help to learn yourself and align yourself with the logic

A sure shot must read for anyone and any age group. I must be the lucky one to get a chance to review such a book.

No need for separate rating 5/5 to the book.

The right advice

I think a lot of the things shared are widely publicised in the Internet ( either by the author or by others ) So there was very little new information. Decent read but could have been much better than this

Nice stories and conversation tidbits to illustrate philosophy. Interesting listen and in a very easy going storyline which is different than others' preachy ways

Not engaging

I have seen several video's of swamy and liked it so much, but this book somehow I am not able to follow along
I have finished few initial chapters
the way it is narrated I found it very boring.
also not able to get central idea about which he is talking.

I have committed myself to finish this book till end so will finish it.
WIll update the review again after finishing

Great speaker and Motivator

I would like to thanks Gaur Gopal Prabhuji for his efforts to enlighten all of us with his experience (life secrets). I found few great points. Seriously I loved you-tube lectures better than this narrations. Hope in next book, please consolidate motivational points from lectures. Thanks again for all valuable lessons and hope one day to attend live lecture. Lila Krishna Das (Atlanta)
