The Greatest Salesman in the World

'More Books, More Freedom' is the favorite quote of my niece, which not only believes in but also insists on launching the new series of Friday's Book Suggestions, with the promise of her personal contribution to it. So, here we are on our first series, to talk about the storytelling, human experiences as well as their values, which have always been an inspiring guide to human life.

Myself will never forget Theodore Dreiser's novel, 'An American tragedy'. The feelings of love, sadness, and greed, as well as the sleepless nights to read both huge volumes, shaped my life's Will and Purpose during my teens.

The bible is a great source of inspiration if you feel lost or lonely. In the difficult moments of decision-making, a quick browsing of the Bible has always provided me the answer.


The Alchemist of Paulo Coelho is one of the strongest stairs of my life's Pyramid. As for the magic pen of Hemingway, his career, and personal life still have a powerful impact on my daily life. To use the spoken and written words as Ernesto did on his powerful and inspiring stories is the dream of every linguist.


Beyond the novels inspired by true or fiction stories, the Self-improvement books are helping tools to get through difficult personal or professional situations. In the age of globalization and the Internet, a wide range of information offers the opportunity to choose the right book for the right situation.


"Most humans, in varying degrees, are already dead. In one way or another, they have lost their dreams, their ambitions, and their desire for a better life... They have settled for a life of mediocrity, days of despair and nights of tears... Yet they need not remain in that state. They can be resurrected from their sorry condition. They can each perform the greatest miracle in the world. They can each come back from the dead" - Og Mandino

After an in-depth study and discussion with friends and colleagues, Og ​​Mandino won the majority suggestion to be the first author of The Friday's Book Suggestion series.

The Greatest Salesman in the World of Augustine "Og" Mandino (12 Dec 1923 – 3 Sep 1996) was published in 1968. 


Mandino composed on his first masterpiece The Legend Of The Ten Scrolls with the primary message "do it now" writting 18 times in the marking of Scroll IX, "I will act now". While the repetitive actions to build good habits come with the promise to become the Greatest Salesman in the World.

Before you open the first page of this masterpiece know that for Og Mandino it was natural to think before acting, to constantly plan the short- and long-term future, and to keep elaborate notes and diary with everything well-written planned.


No wonder why the world's influential personalities like Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey cited that this book has changed their lives.


You have an inspiring read with much Freedom and always remember “Treasure the LOVE you receive above all. It will survive long after your good health has vanished”. Og Mandino.

P.s. Feel free to share here your suggestions of the week's inspirational books.
