Magnificent Obsession by Lloyd C. Douglas

When Robert Merrick's life is saved at the expense of the life of an eccentric but adored surgeon, the carefree playboy is forced to reevaluate his own path. Merrick embarks on a course of anonymous philanthropy, inspired by reading the doctor's private papers. An engaging and dramatic story of personal redemption and private sacrifice, this spiritual tale has served as an inspiration for both the stage and screen.

I loved this book and I now am reading all of the books by Lloyd C. Douglas who is now my favorite author. He weaves inspiring and novel points of view into fictional stories that are hard to put down.

I read this book because Lloyd C. Douglas' The Robe is in my top five books of all time, and I wanted to read his earlier work. This was a very thought-provoking and interesting book, and much different from the old b/w movie. It is a perfect book for discussion. I wish there could be a resurgence of interest in the classics! I recommend it. I also recommend The Robe!! You have to read it!!!

This book should be read by every small business owner or aspiring entrepreneur. Although it is a great novel, it carries a powerful lesson in what makes people 'tick' and teaches some important lessons through a terrific storyline. A powerful novel that has been too long overlooked by the powers-that-be of the publishing industry.
