Zakisms: Life, Simply Stated represents the insight that Dr. Zak El-Ramly has gained through his personal, social, and professional life. Zakisms represent principles that Zak has managed to articulate and express as quotes. The book also captures other people's quotes that rhyme with Zak's views on life.
Zak recognizes that many of us learn the same life lessons; the difficulty is recognizing the applicability of our experiences to others and taking the time to express them in words. Zakisms is the articulation of such lessons, as in the last few years Zak has recognized the added value of verbalizing his insights to make them useable and possibly transferable. Zakisms highlight the ironic nature of life and the eternal need for compromise.

It quickly became apparent when reading Zakisms that the author continually reflects, questions and grows from his life experiences and he is kindly sharing his wisdom in this book. Many of the quotes resonate with me and I am inspired each time I read them. This book is truly a gift to yourself or anyone lucky enough to receive it!
I was fortunate enough to receive this precious book as a gift. I devoured it in one sitting. You will love the inspirational quotes by which to live your life. The book does not preach; it encourages and motivates. If you would love to live your life in the best manner possible, you should give this book a read. You will mark the pages with your favourite quotes, as I did, so that you can refer to them time and time again.
There are just so many truths within the pages of this book. So many ah-ha moments of clarity that humans from all walks of lives will appreciate and relate to. If you're looking for something to give that delivers gem after gem of wisdom, this is perfect. I am getting this for my teenage nieces and nephews and hope that they will go back to it again and again for inspiration and insight.
Wouldn’t it be great to be young again but have all the worldly experience and wisdom that we painfully earned today... back then? How would our lives have changed, where would we be in our careers and most importantly how different would our interpersonal relationships with colleagues, friends and beloved family turn out? What a gift it would have been to visually see the future and with new information- insight, garnered from Dr. Zak El-Ramly “Life Simply Stated” , comes new decision capabilities. I recommend reading Zakisms: Life Simply Stated immediately and get everything that you thought life could be starting today...is it never too late!
