Reviewed in the United States on August 7, 2018
A very easy read, for such deep and meaningful messages. A thought provoking book that everyone can relate to and help them think about life in a better and clearer way. I don't really go for self improvement type books, but this one was exceptional, and got across valuable insights in a friendly and novel way. Relevant for both family and business, definitely worth adding to your cart, you won't be disappointing.

A CEO, an Entrepreneur, a Tourist, and the Monk: Finding the balance between success and happiness Many of us crave to be successful in our careers and other areas of our lives. However, in our pursuit of success, we often inadvertently choose to sacrifice key elements of our lives, either, subconsciously or consciously but resigned to not having a choice. The author carefully chose four characters in his story to reflect real and key personalities which we can relate to. From these four persons' struggles and thoughts, he used the Monk to guide them onto their path of happiness without sacrificing success. I can connect with these four characters as I've personally interacted with people of such personalities and I've often cared and tried hard to steer them towards finding happiness. I now have the means to guide them by the tools given by the author and by the stories written within. It's an easy to read book and you'll find yourself not being able to let go until you found the answers, and still crave for more. If you are a CEO, an entrepreneur or anyone who is self-driven and still in search of that something that will bring happiness, this is a must read before your next step forward.
Alex Butt has done a fantastic job sharing the journey from the corporate boardroom to a Buddhist monk’s view of life, and the attainment of happiness. He weaves the deep learning & insights in an easy to read format. A great reminder & wake up call to cherish the truly important things in our lives. A great book from a business, family & personal perspective. Readers of all ages will find the lessons beneficial in so many ways.

Material success and inner happiness. A challenging combination for most of us to achieve. This book, written in CEO speak, expresses the concepts of Buddha and applies them to business, success, contentment and happiness…..without the bias of religion. A must read for those of us seeking the ultimate!
