    This one of the Best!

    The university of success is required reading for anyone who wants to learn about the real meaning of success. It gives insights on life which many academic institutions leave out. I am think we can learn from other peoples experinces which allows a true appreciation of the book. The University of success gives so much from financial tips; Goal setting; How to live a happy a life; time management tips; a whole host of insights which many educational institutions tend to ignore. Og Mandino has sadly left us all I am certain this was one of his best works the rich tapestries of experience seem to go through the covers which can enlighten and entertain. It takes a great team to make a great book; and this book contains a great team!
