If you had to pick one book On changing your life, I’d pick this one.
In My Opinion this is on of the “Greatest books in the world”. It succinctly organizes some of the most potent life changing principles into a small, compact package that is also fun to read. with the gloat of self help and Success books out there, this one still stands on it’s own. If I were to have to pick one book to recommend for someone looking to change their life, I would recommend this one, and simply tell them to replace “Salesman” with “life”.
This is not a book about sales to be honest (though it’s principles will help you if that is your chosen career). It’s a book about how the human experience unfolds, and what you can do to impact it. As the old saying goes, “My son, pay attention to my words….keep them in the midst of your heart”. There is no better way to change whats in your heart then the principles he utilizes in this book. apply those to life (or whatever your trying to achieve), and you’ll do better. It’s as simply as that.

The Greatest Salesman in the World is a tiny book, and it is a treasure. First published in 1968, Og Mandino’s classic remains an invaluable guide to a philosophy of salesmanship. Mandino’s clear, simple writing style supports his purpose: to make the principles of sales known to a wide audience. A parable set in the time just prior to Christianity, The Greatest Salesman in the World weaves mythology with spirituality into a much needed message of inspiration in this culture of self-promotion. Mandino believes that to be a good salesperson, you must believe in yourself and the work you are doing. It is a simple but profound spiritual philosophy about how to succeed in the world’s marketplace, easily understood and easy to take to heart.
