The Twelfth Angel - Book Review


'The Twelfth Angel' was written by Og Mandino, bestselling author of ‘The Greatest Salesman in the World’. It has been described as “A Heartwarming Story of Belief and Courage.” This is indeed a moving book with powerful self and personal development lessons.

The Twelfth Angel - what it covers
'The Twelfth Angel' is the story of living a high-powered and wonderful life, the grief of losing everything, then finding the strength to start again with renewed hope. The book also demonstrates the fact that your actions always touch the lives of others, whether or not you realise this.

The story-teller flits between the memories of life before his wife and son died, and his current situation. The descriptions are vivid - from the boxed games his son used to play with, the household items belonging to his wife, the places they had been to together, the food they had eaten, etc. There is an unexpected twist of fate towards the end.

Based around the game of baseball, there is a fair amount of description of the sport itself so if you are interested in sports fiction and in baseball in particular, it is an added bonus. It is suitable for young teens onwards. This is also a book for sports coaches, team players and all family and friends who support them.

The Twelfth Angel - the self development lessons

If you feel you have lost all hope, this book makes you think again. It makes you realise that your life does indeed have a purpose and that you have in your grasp more than you think. It is a book about ‘never giving up’ and a number of self development lessons are covered. The story also touches on:

* Rebuilding a shattered life
* Dealing with suicidal thoughts
