I believe everyone sees things differently from the next person. As much as other readers appreciated the book's ending, there are others that beg to differ, which is a great since everyone is entitled their own opinions and our creativeness is not the same. I, on the other hand, liked how the book was ended. The author was inspiration through out the book and in the end proved to everyone that anyone could be successful, no matter how struggling they were before.

The book ended well, but could have been better. It would have been nice if he had ended on a note on the simplicity of life and how wealth and riches are no measure for achieving inner growth. That what the book was about, relationships, life simplicity, inner wealth and how they affect the current of your personal growth.

In many ways, the book feels like only half of what we were promised at the beginning. I was looking forward to reading more about how Rob meets the Gurus he meets later on in his spiritual journey. Even his encounter with Margaret is towards the end, more than 80% into the book. So if I could change the ending, I'd add a bit more of the spiritual gurus so it doesn't feel like the author mislead the readers.

I would end with a bigger, better, more badass, showstopping Margaret story, one that she's worthy of. Her story needs some work. She needs to have a voice. And a bigger story for her would be the way to go, especially if it's the last thing you hear.

I would have loved stories on the experiences Rob had when he met the renowned world gurus. Rob has done a good job at the introduction when he briefly states the impact these gurus had on his life but I believe he didn't do their meeting and his book due justice because he barely scratches the surface with the brief introductions. I think some of these encounters should have been documented as a chapter in the book to give his work more credibility and depth in content
You want to hear Rob's real experience meeting with renowned gurus and not just a mere mention to add to his book's credibility. Great idea!

I agree. It just left me completely unsatisfied and disappointed with the book.

I think the ending is awesome. I true story about someone who cheated death. You can't get a better ending than to give us all hope at beating illness and living a long life.

I did not like how he wrote in the epilogue to go to his page and "get a free pass to the front row of your life." To me, he didn't sound arrogant in the stories because he was learning lessons, but that last sentence really irked me because he did sound arrogant. Plus, he says to pay attention to unexpected "gurus" in your life, and he acts like he's trying to force himself to be an unexpected "guru."
That phrasing really cheapens the message. The book builds up the idea of finding teachers everywhere in your life, and looking for the unexpected lessons, but then it sounds like he just wants to sell you something at the end. Really leaves you with a sour taste.

Such type of books that seem to emulate an autobiography, I feel don't need a certain type of ending. This is because it's the author's life, therefore the ending will be fully dependant on the author's life.
