“Books are undeniably a blessing to humankind”
Books are the best company a human can have. Books provide us information without asking for anything in return. The name of this book speaks for itself as “To Leap” means that you are ready and willing to change and also to grow towards a healthy, flourishing and successful life experience wherein you can learn from the past to create a bright future. The cover page of this book is as attractive as the secrets that have been kept open to help the reader achieve success, prosperity and peace.
Unlike other books, the contents of this book are so well crafted that conceptualization of its readers gets changed. The book provides practical suggestions and exercises which help the readers grasp how the human mind works so as to enable them to fulfill their successful experiences. The author being a medical expert has provided a detailed analysis of physiology, brain anatomy and psychology behind thoughts, emotions, feelings, beliefs, habits, attitude, behavior and self-esteem which helps the person to achieve success. Books like “Open Secret” are our ultimate helper when it comes to the gain of knowledge and eventually achieving wisdom and success.
“Open Secret” is unique in the sense that like a benevolent scribe it uplifts our mood and also gives information to help us to become proficient in handling many key issues that usually derail our aims and goals. The book under review has been written by a conscientious writer who beside allowing the reader to get a peek into his ( writer’s) thoughts, has succeeded to make this book a medium to reach out to a larger audience. The companionship factor of this book is one of the most delightful things and the reader gets hooked, or rather addicted, to its contents. One beautiful aspect of this book is its style. The prose is laden with linguistic constructions that make it conversational and reader friendly – in itself a commendable attempt. This all makes the reader vividly visualize the concepts presented in the prose. Additionally, the domonstration of equations in the book has made it extremely lucid.
This book is a marvelous piece of hard work. It can be instrumental for every person who intends to leap towards success, prosperity and peace. The book is really sensational and incredible as far as the content is concerned, however, the book cover is no less fascinating, charismatic and mesmerizing with its visually crystal clear printing on an exceptionally remarkable paper. The reader can perceive while flipping the pages during reading.
“Open Secret” is relevant for all times to come as well as favorable to every generation as the contents of the book are research based using the solid scientific knowledge. The author must be appreciated for this remarkable achievement which is the outcome of author’s deep research on the subject. The author in this book beautifully intertwines science, history, spirituality,philosophy etc with his experience in order to approach all categories of the readers. Adorned with extraordinary research based knowledge with finest and ideal names of every chapter (which has given additional weightage to the book) makes its contents distinct and appealing. Undoubtedly, all the chapters of this book are catching and interesting but the chapters like The Truth About Decision Making, Self Confidence and Self Esteem, Successful Success and above all the last chapter ‘The Beginning’ are certainly emollient and anodyne.
The book consists of 12 chapters and starts with a chapter titled as “Thought, Emotion and Feeling”, which is crafted so well as if the author already knows the mood of the reader. This chapter recapitulates that proper knowledge of these processes of thought, emotion and feeling and their differentiation can make the journey of life quite amazing and fulfilling. The other chapters are equally interesting and fascinating and every chapter ends with “key points to recapitulate”, which has made this book distinct and unconventional as well. For instance, the author has described “Yawning” as good for health. Yawn anytime, every time and everywhere as the same is the most productive mode of the brain i:e, deep alpha state, the author says. The most staggering part of this book, if I may say, is the last chapter titled “The Beginning”. In reality this chapter gives the feeling of a new beginning to its readers as depicted in its opening sentence “every end is the beginning of something new”.
The message of this book is simple: “when you get hold of the master key you can open any lock (of your life). The doors to unlimited power and prosperity shall automatically fling open. It is an open secret that the master key is ‘awareness’, and its proper and intelligent use will put you on the road to total success and fulfillment.”
Perusal of this book proffers the good intention of the author. It seems he is no less than a savant and is diversely accurate as an oracle of psychological and sociological theories. He is an eminent and acclaimed and avowed Dr. Ashraf Qazi, who besides being a noted oncology surgeon of international standing, is well reputed intellectual and a great scholar. He is a man of science and the said book is based on scientific realism and the world described by science is the real world. The author believes that the ultimate duty of an individual is to grow to their fullest potential and serve the purpose they are made for. That is to say, aim for fulfillment, success and happiness and make this world a better place for everyone to live, otherwise life is wasted.
Book is available on pothi.com and Amazon.com. Soon it will be available on Amazon.in.
