Overview

It's safe to say that world-famed speaker and author Og Mandino has as many friends as any man alive, thanks to his inspiring motivational lectures and his bestselling books. This new book is a special gift to all his friends, old and new, a book they may cherish above all the rest. Secrets for Success and Happiness is Og's beautifully written journal, an intimate record of his innermost thoughts and feelings, the heartwarming events of his day-to-day life.
Whether he's writing in his old New Hampshire farmhouse on a snowy winter day or in a hotel room just about anywhere in the country; whether he's refilling the bird feeder, comforting a sick friend, racing to catch a plane, receiving a standing ovation, or planting his tomatoes, Og weaves his secrets of success into the fabric of his life and the pages of his book. He shares anecdotes, both sad and funny, and his feelings about his fan mail and the people he meets. And when trouble comes to him, he shares that, too.
Living with Og and listening to his thoughts as the rich days unfold, we once again find the sheer joy of wondering what tomorrow will bring, and the courage never to look back on yesterday.

Editorial Reviews

Ilene Cooper
It may surprise Og Mandino's fans to learn that the author of so many best-selling inspirational fables is actually, behind the aphorisms, a flesh-and-blood man. Not only that, but he turns out to be much more interesting than most of the fictional heroes he's created. In this journal, Mandino writes about the things you might expect from a professional optimist--love of family, the beauty of nature, the satisfaction of hard work. But he also acknowledges in a most personal fashion that you can't fix everything by looking on the bright side. For instance, when his doctor informs him he has a nodule on his prostate and some valve problems, his imagination runs away with him as it might for the less-positive thinkers among us, and when bona fide medical emergencies hit, Mandino feels fear and pain in normal doses. As for those secrets of success and happiness in the book's title, they're tucked away in the journal entries, sometimes even between the lines. Not to worry: Mandino's fans will know where to look, though it's even money whether his familiar wisdom will prove more inspirational than his heretofore hidden humanity.

    Great Reading!!

    I have decided to give this book as part of all my gifts. Is a perfect present for all occasions, and I am sure it will be enjoyed by all who receive it. Mandino writes this in Journal form, and shows that he lived and believed everything his books and speeches taught. Helps you get to know Mandino himself, the outstanding person he was, learn more lessons in the process, and be inspired and uplifted.
