I was intrigued by the title and hence picked this book. Nobody calls a regular person a hero and so I wanted to understand what Robin Sharma meant when he said Everyday Hero. I have not read any books from Robin Sharma so this was my first experience reading a book by him. Also I am not very high on picking up motivational books, so the genre itself was new to me.


While the book blurb is a detailed one, I am just touching on the important aspects that I found interesting when I decided to pick this book. It claims to provide powerful practices to upgrade your energy amplify your vitality and extend your longevity so you materialize your sovereign genius. A blue print for making true masterwork that leads your field and illuminates coming generations and neuroscience based techniques to turn troubles into triumphs.

Book Review

The Everyday Hero Manifesto starts on a very personal note. It is an attempt by Robin Sharma to show the everyday influences that we have in our life and the everlasting effect that they have on our life and thinking.

I liked the way he has included the personal stories around these everyday heroes and the way they influenced him. These are people like the school teacher who encouraged him or the mentor at his work who advised him.

As the book progresses, at times the name dropping seems forced. We know that Robin Sharma is a leading leadership and personal mastery expert in the country. He has coached leaders of some of the biggest companies in the world, so him dropping names of people seems promotional and unnecessary.

The Everyday Hero Manifesto also had some wisdom nuggets that I had heard my grandparents say over the years. While they couldn’t explain the underlying theory for this, the effect was the same.

The Everyday Hero Manifesto Review

My grandmother always asked us to talk positive things, her explanation was that God is always blessing us and if we say negative or doubtful things then it will come true as he blessed us when we said it. I found it funny then, but today when we hear so much about manifestation of thoughts, I can’t help but wonder how true my granny’s words were. Robin Sharma too talks about not using negative connotation to good things that you do or that others do.

Another interesting concept that I saw explained was the ‘Neki Kar Dariya main Daal’ statement. As children we grew up listening to this idiom and saw it being practiced by my grandparents. Robin Sharma’s greatest influence, his father asked him to ‘Serve Others’

It is these people and their way of life that forms the crux of ‘The Everydday Hero Manifesto’. I liked the motivational stories of various well-known personalities as that makes the reader hopeful. There are also a lot of implementable strategies to improve our daily life. All in all a good read, probably for someone like me who is just dabbling in the genre for the first time. I did hear from other friends that they liked his other book the 5 am Club better, but I haven’t read that so can’t comment on that.
