thank you.

I enjoyed listening to this book. I started listening when I had a very long commute. i finished days later with only listening when I drove. I heard some things that kept me processing the message through out the day.

Fundamental book for achievers

Great book providing radically different perspective compared to media. It gave me a fresh view how to look on my life and what I want to achieve. I will never look at masters the same way and I want to become one! #Inspiring #Fundamental #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

Mastery is simple to understand hard to do

Don’t let the simplicity fool you. This book is well thought out and well written. The real skill lies in the readers ability to apply the lessons learnt. Like with all things...

Just as good as I remember

Years ago I was given a copy of this book and it started my journey on the path. Several events have jolted me out of my comfort zone and brought me back to the path. This is a transformative book, read it, study it live it the beauty and change you have are worth the effort.

A Gem.

A great accumulation of wisdom. An alternative to modern culture of drama, violence and convenience.

Amazing book

This book will offer you insights on not just mastery of skills. But insight into the whole of life itself. Definitely worth the purchase. The narration is great and the stories and examples are as well.
