Great Inspirational Story for any Age Mar 15, 2007
What a great story that can be read by many over and over again.
Simple, yet compelling Feb 17, 2007
Don't let the title fool you. This book is not just for salesmen, it's for everyone. The story was written in 1968. I have read this book many times. As I just started reading it again, I'm reminded of how much I've missed the wisdom held within those one hundred and eight pages. This is an easy reader; probably most sixth graders can read and comprehend the material. Simplicity does not negate wisdom. Perhaps that's one of the secret's of the book's success. Simplicity.
Og Mandino uses the story of Hafid, a young camel boy that lived in biblical times, to promote the values that he wishes to extend to the reader. These values are presented to Hafid in the form of ten scrolls who is then instructed to read each scroll three times a day for thirty days before proceeding on to the next scroll. This method is intended to help Hafid internalize the principles. Read the book straight through, then go back and study the scrolls.
I was first introduced to this book in 1989 by a friend and it has made a profound difference in my life. It's probably considered a classic by now since over 13 million copies have been sold, and there are entire seminars, that focus on this book and the ten principles. Mandino wrote 17 books during his life and was one of the most sought-after motivational speakers in the country before his death in 1996. I had the pleasure of hearing him speak in 1994 when he was 71. His legacy is the vast quantities of love and decency spawned by the reading of his books. People still pay attention.
this book is a joke Feb 9, 2007
I read it though, and then threw it away. It was a waste of my time. I am an ontrapanuer looking to sell my own product. The advice contained within "the secrect scrolls" (ha, ha) was just pure crap. Og discouraged higher education by stating that it is not neccarry to the sales man. He said to look at your potential customer like you love him/her (anybody selling anything appreciates their customers money, but come on I love my wife but to love my customer to make a sale. Why not just sell an excellent product at a fair price and satisfy both yourself and the customer. Good luck reading this and becoming the greatest salesmen. Do yourself a favor and save the five bucks you are going to spend on this book and apply it towards a marketing class at your communtity colloge.
This book is a Masterpiece by Og Mandino. Jan 23, 2007
One of my favorite books. Million dollar companies have been created by this book. Must read, must have for anyone looking to improve in every aspect of life, Spiritually, mentally, physically, and financially. Amazing book. So much wisdom is jammed into this book that even after 5 years of starting it, i'm still learning new things from it. Love Og Mandino's works.
Great read! Jan 11, 2007
The book is written as a story during the days of Jesus' birth and I loved all the details that kept me wondering how Hafid made his business so successful. The secrets are revealed and are so basic that every person in sales needs to read it! It was a quick book to read and easy to place in your bag when on the go.
