Book Review: Life's Golden Ticket: An Inspirational Novel by Brendon Burchard

Life's Golden Ticket: An Inspirational Novel by Brendon Burchard, is one of the best books I had the opportunity to read and review. It is one of those rare titles that I have wanted to read in one sitting but was not able to because I had to go to sleep.

The story begins with a man who hears the news that his wife, missing for forty days, was found and is now in the ICU. Thus begins the adventure to the circus...

While reading the book, I could not help but compare it to the lessons that you learn in most self-help books. But then again, important lessons in life are worth retelling, if only for us to really get it.

I enjoyed reading the book as it offered a fresh backdrop to what seemed to be an overly crowded self-help book market. Labeling is as an inspirational novel though, is misleading.

Highly recommended for everyone who enjoy reading lessons packaged as fiction.
