This was the first psychologically inspirational book I purchased at 16. If you want a beautiful book that has a powerful, life changing message then this is it. How to live happily ever after in the truest sense.

Review quote

"The Precious Present puts life in its simplest form. We should all follow its message and live life in the wonderful state The Precious Present awards each of us. I read it to all of my teams before we take the floor for the first day of practice." --Rick Pitino, author of Success is a Choice

Discover the precious present and find yourself! A simple story, engagingly told, The Precious Present does more than capture the heart; it is a valuable gift for anyone seeking a deeper level of fulfillment and personal happiness. Telling a story of vital significance in today's fast-paced, competitive environment, The Precious Present will help you discover the joy in life we all seek--whether we go to Wall Street or around the world to find it. Just as Spencer Johnson's bestseller The One Minute Manager helped rehumanize the workplace around the world, The Precious Present helps each reader rediscover his or her own humanity. This beautiful tale demonstrates the delicate art of balancing your spiritual and material needs, and shows how this goal can be maddeningly elusive--and gloriously attainable.
