Description de l'ouvrage

3 mars 2014
     Looking down from the Eiffel Tower, Alan Greenmor stands on the edge, determined to end it all. As he prepares to jump, his thoughts are interrupted by a cough. To his right is a mysterious man in a dark suit, smoking a cigar. This is Yves Dubreuil. The man who will change his life.
     Dubreuil convinces Alan to reconsider his plans, with one caveat: instead of ending his life, he will give his life over to Dubreuil. In return, Dubreuil promises to show Alan the secrets to happiness and success.
     And so, Alan embarks on a wild ride of self-discovery. From a humiliating fiasco at a Parisian bakery, to finding the strength to assert himself in his company’s boardroom, Alan learns to overcome his deepest fears and self-doubts, face life’s unexpected twists and turns, take crazy risks, and fully accept himself in the process.
      From best-selling author Laurent Gounelle, The Man Who Risked It All explores the fragility of life and the possibilities that are presented to us in the unlikeliest circumstances

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Its a feel good book! 4 juillet 2014
Par lady angelica - Publié sur
The man who risked it all is a book about a guy named Allan who was about to jump off the Eiffel tower, but he was interrupted when he heard someone cough behind him when he was about to jump. And right that moment he didn’t know his life would change because of the man who interrupted him. His name is Yves Dubreuil, he offered allan a deal that he will change Allan’s life by teaching him the secret to happiness and success in life. In exchange of Allan ending his life, he will give his life to Dubreuil and he will obey everything that Debreuil asks him to do.

It never occurs to me that I would like a book this book till the ending. Because at first I was like “oh another story of a depressed person and of course he wouldn’t jump and so on and so forth”. But I did like it. It has a Very interesting story and examples about how to be confident in your own skin and be more assertive in order to move forward in life. And how we should avoid being a doormat and we should learn to be a leader. This book is very inspirational like a self-help book but better.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great novel, great message 28 juin 2014
Par Robert Selden - Publié sur
I didn't know whether to review “The Man Who Risked It All” as either a novel or a self-help book, for it is both. For although the cover labels the book “a novel” in fact it does both brilliantly and seamlessly.

The story tells of a young man, Alan Greenmor, born of an American mother and French father who grew up in the US (speaking fluent French with his mother) and now living in Paris. The story begins with Alan about to take the first step towards his suicide from the Eiffel Tower, only to be persuaded to stop by a stranger who does a deal with him. The deal is that the man will look after Alan, put him back on the road to health, wealth and happiness; in exchange, Alan must do everything the man asks.

The early chapters are full of self-reflection as the stranger takes Alan through a process of self-development that is both stimulating and sometimes torturous. Mystery arrives when Alan finds himself being followed by strange men and women. Then of course, there is romance in the form of Audrey who appears in his life tumultuously, only to disappear mysteriously just as the romance is reaching its peak. That’s the novel component.

The dialogue between the stranger (now known as Dubrieul) and Alan takes Alan through an intense piece of psychotherapy that is easily followed and has many great messages for the reader – that’s the self-help bit.

Alan’s adventures in his work place add a further dimension to this novel – corporate politics and shareholder greed that Alan has to confront and overcome on his way to becoming a better person. In doing so, there’s a very clear message about the avarice of those who play the share market for their gain at the expense of the company’s long term future. Brilliant!

All in all an impressive novel and also very useful should you need some reminders about positive self-management.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Loved all the twists 25 juin 2014
Par Nicole LaConti - Publié sur
This story had a great beginning; it hooked me in from the start. Alan, was about to kill himself by jumping off of the Eiffel Tower but was interrupted. He decides to use this man’s help, Yves, which sends him out in the world with given tasks. At first they seemed impossible but they were really helping him and showing him he has control over his life. It’s possible for everyone to step out of their comfort zone so they can grow. This proved to give Alan some self-confidence so he could accomplish what he thought was the impossible.
I will admit that parts of the book were not very interesting to me. The main character, Alan, is an accountant and I didn’t understand the talk about stocks and numbers; however, it had some important information that went along with the plot.
This book had a great ending! All the twists and turns in the plot is what kept me interested enough to continue reading. I recommend this book for someone who likes mysteries and loves unexpected surprise endings!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Review: The Man Who Risked It All - Highly Recommended 17 juin 2014
Par Julie in Michigan - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
Laurent Gounelle, personal development specialist and leader of international seminars, wrote his fourth book to assist us in understanding the principles of Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), by initially portraying himself as a lowly employee, lacking in self-confidence, The Man Who Risked It All, and ultimately finding a level of confidence in himself, unforeseen in the opening chapters.

By the final chapter our narrator has become self-confident enough to pull off a solo sting operation at the firm which would have been his former employer if his plan had not worked. We watch the hero’s journey unfold as he initially finds himself on a window ledge, determined to end the pain and suffering of the life he feels destined to be his. Only by the presence of the stranger appearing at his side, does he become obliged to give life another try. Our author finds he is unable to break a promise he has made to the stranger. Fear controls his life and he feels assured if he runs, the threatened consequences will be delivered.

While reading the story, I pondered whether the stranger was to be revealed as an earthly version of Satan? However, by giving our leading man assignments that will open the door to his knowledge of how he has truly been limited by his own lacking self-confidence in his skills and abilities, we will ponder at the puzzle of his rude and painful treatment of our man in juxtaposition with the overall improvement of confidence in himself.

Accounting is his career and he has no qualms regarding his mathematical abilities as shown through his ability to perform mental math while being accosted from every side with negative comments, under the rueful eye of his employer. However, his self-confidence, as we might understand, eventually falters under the artful besiege of insults. The surprise ending reveals the stranger’s identity and his manipulations made behind the scenes.

The book held me spellbound as I drove to find out the stranger’s identity, the reason for his interest and our protagonist’s eventual success or failure. A very favorable review is in order. I plan to share this book with several friends, I highly recommend it.

I did receive a free copy of this book from Hay House Publishing in order to write this review. I received no monetary compensation and was not obligated to make it a positive review. I was simply asked to give my honest opinion and this is it.

Not only was this book well written with a very interesting story line, but it also had some great ideas about changing behaviors & living life well yet fearlessly. Of course, having the story take place in Paris is always wonderful for me.
