The Gift, Greece’s self-help phenomenon represented internationally by Ersilialit

unnamed

We are delighted to inform you that we represent internationally Stefanos Xenakis’ best-seller, THE GIFT, Greece’s biggest self-help publishing phenomenon in recent years!
THE GIFT has sold over 100,000 copies since its publication in June 2018 and has been at the top of the best-seller list for over 80 weeks!

Here’s what The New York Times wrote about THE GIFT in 2019:
In fact, the only European country where (Michelle) Obama’s book sales seem weak is Greece, where the No. 1 book is Xenakis Stefanos’s “The Present” — “Every day is a Gift. Open it. Do not throw it away.” “Becoming” doesn’t appear on Greek nonfiction lists at all.

So, what is it that makes THE GIFT so special?

Contrary to what most self-help books would have you strive for -that is, an unattainable state of perpetual happiness based on the “success” dream-, Xenakis invites us to aim for excellence by simply being enlightened, kind and humane.

Moving, inspiring and delightful, the 101 everyday life-stories Xenakis shares with us in THE GIFT, show us that greatness resides in each and every one of us and can be brought to the surface as long as we are prepared to be simply and unreservedly brilliant humane beings.
