Why OG?

Have you ever or have you ever wanted to read one of the “success” or “motivation” books? The great ones still sell in big numbers: Think and Grow Rich, Power of Positive Thinking, How to Win Friends and Influence People, See You at the Top, and then there are those little books by Og Mandino.

If you’ve read all the rest, and you still haven’t become “successful,” or if you don’t like the self help approach of most success books, or if you haven’t ever read one, but you’d like to start somewhere now, try The Choice by Og Mandino.

You see, Mandino tells stories that sneak up on you with their life changing morality plays. He never says, tomorrow look in the mirror and say “I am a valuable person.” He doesn’t tell you to make lists, or just keep trying. None of that.

In this particular little 2 hour read (162 pages in mass market paperback), we hear the story of a guy who has to make a choice. No one is ever faced with a more grave decision. There is mystery, a little bit of a love story, romantic getaways, and adventure.

I double dog dare you to read this book and fail to contemplate the direction your life is heading. You may stay the course, or you make a choice. Easily available at Amazon and others.
