I don't think he should write a sequel or another motivational book. The thing I loved best about Rob White's writing was his engaging way of telling stories. I'd love to read a book about his travel experiences, for example, but I don't think he can necessarily give me more advice.

I have never heard about series in autobiography. I don't think this novel needs a sequel.

Rob has outlined his whole life, distilling it down to the teaching moments that he got the most from. Are there other teaching experiences that he could share with us? Absolutely, but I feel that he has given the best here, so any sequel would only contain the same ideas but more long winded, or he would be giving inferior information.

I don't think he should write a sequel, though I would be interested in a book that teaches his method for earning money in real estate.

I don't there should be such things as sequels. They are just a ploy to try to make more money. In this case I particularly don't think there should be as Rob has said everything he needs to say.

I think a sequel would be a good idea. Let's meet more gurus. Let's continue with the journey. Let's learn more about what he learned and what we can learn even if it is from the same gurus.

I don't think there should be a sequel because it's an autobiography and the author wrote about his experiences already. However he could always write another motivational book and I'm sure it would be a success.

Some books are better off 'stand alone', I'd say this book also belongs to that list.

I don't think a sequel would be easy considering the kind of book it is, and I agree that if he wrote another book, it should be a stand alone as Quartz says above.

Some books are better left as they are. I have been so disappointed in many sequels, I would rather leave this one alone.

I don't think this book should have a sequel. It's better as it is. Another book can be written but not related to this one. It's better as stand-alone.

I agree what with what other's have said about how this book being an autobiography would make it hard to have a sequel. I would be interested in reading any additional books this author were to write though.

I actually think a sequel could be built up based on the lessons introduced in this book.

I don't think there should be a sequel to this book. It's not warranted at all. It's not a thriller or adventure kind of story.

It's more of how a writer, lecturer, and innovative creator of Mind Adventure Inc., a consultancy program for professional and personal growth.

I think that this book pretty much covered the message. Although there was a couple other things I would've liked to read it, I don't think it would be enough for a sequel and I also feel that with the messages in the book there isn't much else in way of those messages that would need to be said.
