    My recommendation: 8 / 10

    Date read: Year 2013

    Brief review: Life is full of peaks and valleys. In this book you will discover how to stay longer at the peak and get out of the valleys sooner. The author takes you through this journey with the story of a young man.It's natural to have highs and lows in life and we must accept it. We cannot control external events but can control our response to them. Arrogance keeps us away from the peaks. It's short, crisp and too the point. I liked the essence of the book and the way author puts his point across. Strongly recommended.
