Rated 5 out of 5 by from 108 Stars out of 5! Getting a new book is _clearly_ a reason not to go into work, right?! I honestly can't recommend "The Magic Mala" by Bob Olson enough. It came yesterday in the mail and it's also available as an ebook. I had high hopes as it's being compared to The Celestine Prophecy, The Way of the Peaceful Warrior and The Alchemist. I'm only seven chapters in and it's exceeding all expectations. I'd also put it in line with The Leader Who Had No Title by Robin Sharma, as far as content goes, and Harry Potter as far as "please, just one more chapter...why am I falling asleep at 2am?!" goes. Even if you're a person who doesn't like reading, I have a feeling that you'll love this book. If you are a person who loves reading, do yourself a favour and buy the paperback copy of The Magic Mala. It's one you'll want to have in your collection. Thank you for writing this book Bob. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
