The Mastery Manual: Book Review

One of the greatest, and most well-known people in the self-help industry, Robin Sharma has written 15 bestselling books. The Mastery Manual is one of those feathers from his hat. Known for his eloquent way of breaking complex ideas into straightforward rules of success, Robin, in the Mastery Manual, brings 36 modules that take you towards success. The growth is not just professional but personal as well.

The 36 modules in The Mastery Manual are the best thing about it because this makes reading it so much simpler. Each module is short and crisp, bringing you new ideas that are easy to understand. Presenting the short modules makes the Mastery Manual a manual that one can revisit when needed and get solutions. Being the kind of motivator Robin is, the Mastery Manual is full of inspirational quotes from world leaders, which gives a clearer understanding of why they are what they are. Risk-taking is another crucial learning that the book states in detail. It starts by explaining how we do not live our lives to our true potential because of our fears and further illustrates the importance of taking calculated risks in our lives.

Not all bets will convert into success, but all will teach you something that will stay with you for your entire life. There were other things in the Mastery Manual that caught my attention with an opposing glare in the book, like ‘THE 5 GOLDEN DISCIPLINES OF LIFE MASTERY’ and a few other similar ‘Rules’ I find it challenging to agree with those because I believe each individual is different from another, and no 5 or 500 rules could help everyone achieve mastery of their lives.

 We should and must learn from other people’s lives but never forget that it was someone else’s life, and if a similar problem occurs in our life, the solution could be very different or even the opposite.


A great Idea from the book is to not wait for perfection but to act now. We keep spending too much time sharpening our knives, we may never get to use them. The Mastery Manual succeeds in delivering its message of living a full life that you believe is your destiny and shows you how you have to just unlock everything yourself to get there. 

Although a big part of the Mastery Manual talks about ideas of other people, or quotes from other people or Robin’s own previous books, which makes the book seem a bit cliched and thoughts to be well known, still pandering to a large audience that Robin does, it works like magic.
