    This book reminded me of two books - "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari" and "Square One: A Simple Guide to a Balanced Life". The style of telling the story was similar to Sharma and the content was similar to Square One. The book is divided into 4 sections with the premise that these are the four wheels of life and if any one of them is not right, the car of life doesn't move properly. The four wheels are: 1) Personal life 2) Relationships 3) Work life 4) Social contribution There were many things that I This book reminded me of two books - "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari" and "Square One: A Simple Guide to a Balanced Life".

The four wheels are: 1) Personal life 2) Relationships 3) Work life 4) Social contribution There were many things that I agree with but a few things that I didn't. The best section was the one on relationships. The section on money seemed forced to me. The book is very easy to read. It is full of stories. Each chapter has 2-3 stories in addition to the main storyline. The author has a summary at the end of each chapter. There is also a bit of suspense, in the sense, that the author hints at something in the last few pages of a chapter and that info is available in the next chapter. It keeps you reading. Overall, recommended. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley.

    My first impression based on the cover: It’s minimalistic and so peaceful with the monk’s way to find the meaning of the ‘highest degree’ inside a human. Description: It’s described a haul of dilemmas in a person’s life, where the author himself exchanging conversation between Hariprasad (a.k.a Harry) Iyer and those dilemmas were merged with the four wheels of life, mainly ‘Personal Life’, ‘Relationships’, ‘Work Life’ and ‘Social Contribution’.

Description: It’s described a haul of dilemmas in a person’s life, where the author himself exchanging conversation between Hariprasad (a.k.a Harry) Iyer and those dilemmas were merged with the four wheels of life, mainly ‘Personal Life’, ‘Relationships’, ‘Work Life’ and ‘Social Contribution’. The explanations in each of those wheels were easy to follow towards the path of spiritual awakening, following with the author’s life and the others’. Moreover, the sayings that being provided was short and meaningful too. In every end of those chapters was being reflected on the ‘Monk Mindset’ (summary). Conclusion: I recommended reading any books that based on ‘Ikigai’ (a reason of being), as many meditation books that I’ve been discovered were based on it somehow.

    Interesting read whereby lessons about life and how to live are conferred in a simply yet engaging parable, with the author flitting in and out of some of his recollections. The message itself is beautiful, urging people to really work on themselves, and this is the work one has to do before looking to make the rest of the world right. It does get a bit slow and dragging at times, and for a monk, the author sounds a little bit inflated and full of himself at times, but this can be disregarded in Interesting read whereby lessons about life and how to live are conferred in a simply yet engaging parable, with the author flitting in and out of some of his recollections.

    Unlike other self-help books, the way main points are brought across makes this book interesting to read. It’s an easy one time sitting read, but i would suggest to break it down to process it fully. I would read it over in future just to remind myself of some things stated in a book. This book has helped me to reflect on things that i might have ignored it or never thought in depth about it. Now after analyzing on those things, I feel to have gained better perspective.

    Thank you net galley and publishers for the book The book is about how to be happy! Written with simple words in conversational way the book guides us to a spiritual way of living (The actual meaning and not converting us to be a monk!) With each point there is also short story as example to clarify the readers the concept making the book applicable for all age groups.

    This book wasn’t quite how I thought it would be, but that’s no bad thing. It gives you real life problems and real life solutions in the way it is narrated. It’s a story, more than a self-help type book, with constant reminders of how to deal with life’s issues. It’s a very positive and uplifting book. Thank you NetGalley for my complimentary copy in return for my honest review.

    Amazing insight into how we can change ourselves our relationships for the better. I couldn't put the book down. It has amazing true stories that the author has shared about his own life events. I loved the book and recommend it to anyone who wants to take a peak into what we can potentially be. Amazing insight into how we can change ourselves our relationships for the better.

    My first Gaur Gopal Das novel and it didn’t disappoint! The prose flowed nicely and I enjoyed all the small stories that intwined within his teachings. If I could award half stars would of been a solid 4.5 from me. Worth the read

    I wasn't sure what to expect with this book but I loved it. The author takes you on a journey, telling you a story of one of his trips and at the end of each chapter breaks down what he had learn't and how we can apply this to our lives. Its a good book to dip in and out of. I wasn't sure what to expect with this book but I loved it.

    “We all have two ears and one mouth; the amount we listen and the amount we speak should be done proportionately.” (pp.15) I stumbled upon Guar Gopal Das’ videos at the beginning of the week and was immediately captivated, so when I found out about this book I had no choice but to jump straight in.

The storytelling was phenomenal; the way he chooses to narrate his lessons and advice is truly inspirational and moved me throughout. I have left this book with optimism, hope and renewal - isn’t that what literature is about? I humbly thank Guar Gopal Das for his words of wisdom and I am grateful for his courage in sharing his message. An exceptional must-read.

    I truly love listening to Gaur Gopal Das. In parts this book was a delight to read, as he writes as lovely and charming as he speaks. Gopal Das tells lots of stories, some true, some mystic fictious, to make people better understand the basics of life and the importance of their balance, that he is talking about. That I really liked. Then I recognised that that many of the things that he writes about are based on spirituality. Something that I personally can't relate on.

I liked the easy to understand way in which this was written. I liked the narrative flow. At the end, I was a bit disappointed to learn that our other two main characters were indeed characters that embodied the catalyst for the rest. It kinda made me sad. I felt a bit let down. I had wondered roughly midway through if thus all actually did happen or was fictionalized to illustrate the points and then did find out that yes it is fiction used to teach. The lessons of which were many I had heard of previously, but where nice reminders all the same and told in a different way on many occasions. Many of the concepts I have read about or heard about before, yet it was nice to have these gentle sort if reminders. I liked that his ultimate goal in chatting with people is to let them know that he is not their guru, any that any decision they make is okay in most situations as long as they think about the why of their decision too. I would recommend this one to anyone looking to further cement in these wise principles and/or anyone who has heard him talk to further engage with his knowledge of the world.
