REAL SUCCESS (A HANDBOOK FOR PERSONAL SUCCEESS AND HAPPINESS) BY PATRICK MATHER – PIKE
MY RATING = 3.5/5
This book remembers me those days when I first started going to college. At that time, I love to read this book because it always give motivation to do big in life. This is another kind of motivational book but something I like about this book is that the contents written in this is of single words but very familiar to all of us and the detailed explanation tells us the deep meaning of that word. Like the author has used many motivational words in his contents like “Dream Big Dreams”, “Thing Big”, “Attitude is Everything”, “Visualisation” and many more things which motivates to achieve more.

Quick SUMMARY of the book
The summary of the book can’t be written in a single paragraph because it contains many chapters and all the chapters has its unique meaning. So I would like to put forward some of the contents in the form of short para. The book contains total of 36 chapters and is divided into two sections – First one is “Attitudes and Paradigms” and the second one is – “Success Habits”. Both of these topics has many contents.
FIRST CHAPTER – DEFINING SUCCESS 1 – In this chapter, author has described what success is. Success is not achieving money, luxury cars, living in a big house, wear designer clothes, you have to think in a broader way to achieve success. Success can be different for different people because the perception of people to see the world is different. So what is “Real Success”? Real Success is all about doing great in life and achieving things that create values in your life.
OTHER CHAPTERS – THINK BIG – The book tells us the importance of thinking big and how one can achieve great heights in his life by only thinking big. The author has also described that this doesn’t mean that to think only big and expect from someone else to do things for you. It means you should think big no matter what is happening to you. Your first step towards success is “Thinking Big”.
