Julian Mantle is back. And this time, he is hell bent on spoiling the life of another man  - Jonathan.

Last time, in the best-selling novel, 'The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari' by Robin Sharma (which I love to call as 'The Dumbass Who Sold His Ferrari Instead Of Giving It To Me') the accomplished attorney Julian Mantle had sold everything he had including his ferrari to become a monk and roam around in the Himalayas in search of the truth (I say, all he had to do to find the truth was to find some good hash). He meets the sages of Sivanna, who teach him life changing lessons, which in the end, (you've guessed it) change his life. He comes back and teaches these to one of his friends while Robin Sharma eavesdrops and finally writes a bestselling novel on it.

Ok! Serious now!

In 'The Secret Letters of The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari', Robin Sharma tells the tale of another man, Jonathan, whose life is going downhill. Julian Mantle, who happens to be his cousin, takes on the task to transform his life and give him the inspiration he needs. He sends Jonathan on an errand where he has to travel all across the world to gather a few talismans which Julian had kept in the possession of certain friends of his. This journey changes his life.

Ok! Now the Review!

This is one of the most predictable and boring books that I've ever read. From the very first chapter any man with an IQ above 10 will realize what is going to happen next. If you've got an IQ above 50, you might as well read the first chapter and keep the book away. I understand that it is an inspirational book, purely for the same purpose. But it could have been a lot better. The dramatizations associated with each realization of Jonathan as he receives each talisman, is quite exaggerated. Its not really an exciting journey for the reader because all along, you'll know what is going to happen in the end. It is as predictable as ever.

Rating: 3/10
[+1] for writing more than 200 pages of nothing but inspirational stuff.
[+3] for the inspiration.
[+1] for the descriptions.
[-2] for predictability.
[+0] for everything else.

You should read the book if => you love inspirational books more than anything.
You shouldn't read the book if => you like to read good books worth reading.

P.S: I'm a tough critic. I know. You'll know.
