When God things Happen to Bad People

The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari (is now making a lot of money)

Robin Sharma has clearly made a fortune from this self-help book which purports to answer life’s key questions. That is very noble, but the major flaw in this story is that it reads like a fairy tale and assumes that the reader is an infantile dimwit. The dialogues are laughable, the 'insights' are a succession of clich├ęs and the 'lessons' patently obvious. The stories are clearly the figment of his imagination and read like scenes from Hansel and Gretel.
