After having read the book cover to cover I never felt I was reading a book. It all appeared to me that I was having a conversation with a friend, an enlightened one. Don Miguel’s style of writing is conversational. He never lets you feel that you are reading a book.

Although this is not the first self improvement book I have read recently, it left me with some great insights. The gist of the book I feel is that,the world is a reflection of your own self. The four agreements that Don has described in the book are gems of wisdom in their own right.

Don has made references to wisdom of the ancient people from different cultures across the world. It is a great thing to do cross cultural references while you are proposing something that has the potential to prove life changing for the readers. This is really thoughtful of him. Basically Rob has referred the ancient wisdom of the vedic culture of India and the Mexican natives.

It further strengthened my belief that gems of wisdom can come from any corner of the world. The only thing that matters is that we ought to keep our eyes and ears open to recognize them.

The four agreements that Don proposes the reader to make with themselves are not very uncommon to be found in the writings of other life coaches, especially the ones who derive their inspiration from the oriental cultures.

Although there are lots of books published in this genre every year around the world, this one is no run-of-the-mill creation. The book “Be Your Own Pilot” is a marvel among the self improvement books that have been published lately. Written by a veteran pilot of the Indian Air force, the book is a single point of reference a person would ever need as the source of the ultimate mantra for success in all walks of life.

 

Manish uses the analogy of flying to depict the various difficulties one faces in life and also shows the ways to overcome those difficulties. He has used his own personal experience during his days at the flying school to narrate a completely mesmerising story. If you ever had any interest in flying an aircraft yourself, you are sure to love the book. The book though very concise delivers the message it wants to deliver with absolute clarity in a simple to understand language.

 

I would recommend this book to all who ever wondered what the secret mantra for success in life is. Well, even at the risk of revealing the secret formula, I would like to give you a glimpse of the it. Manish calls it IVR. Although the secret is revealed in almost the middle of the book, the path treaded to reach the secret is equally enriching.

 

Well, now you see, how could I keep my readers from getting to know about a life changing opportunity? I had to do it… finally after trying my hand at it many times before, I have finished the review of one of the most amazing books I have ever had the opportunity to lay my hands on. Now, you bet I would recommend reading the book and keeping it in your personal library for easy access for whenever require to refer it.
