Og MANDINO (1968, 1989), The Greatest Salesman in the World, Mass Market Paperback
By Daniel Maldonado, 1º Bachillerato B, EFL
The story takes place in Christ’s time. It is about a rich old man called Hafid who was a salesman. When he was young his master gave him 10 scrolls, which had a hidden secret about how to see life from another point of view and which were going to help him throughout his life. He made a lot of money. His servant Erasmus always accompanied him.
The part I found most interesting is when he was going to die and he finally found a successor to keep his scrolls. It was a man called Paul who had met Christ and said that he had to meet Hafid to give him something.
This book is a psychological, fantasy tale which has been a best-seller because it has helped a lot of people in their lives.  The message the book gives is: Do not be afraid of life, enjoy the moment and fight for what you want.
I recommend it to people who have problems in their lives. You should be at least 15 years or older to read this book.
