Written in simple language, it lists the dos and don'ts that call upon a great deal of self-discipline. It talks about life lessons that one can apply to realize their full potential. He suggests tracking our everyday activities to make sure we do things that are constructive and have positive effects on other people as well.

Unlike The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, this book does not have a story weaved into the message and neither does it sound preachy. It is a good book to read if one is looking to introspect and find a higher purpose in life and it aims at helping readers in staying focused on being happy. According to Sharma, one way to do this would be to live life by choice and not let things happen by chance. He quotes Norman Cousins and his father among others for emphasis. The book also focuses on how one can accept one's responsibilities and how to look for contentment. One of his suggestions is to take a “worry break”, an allotted time everyday just to think about our problems and that eventually, we would decrease the time allotted for such breaks until the habit is done away with.
Who Will Cry When You Die? (Gujarati), following the success of the The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, was also a success. This book is the Gujarati version of the original book published in 2007.
