Me thinks

This book has been written keeping in mind a fresher who is just out of college and is desirous of making a career in the corporate world.

As I flipped through its pages I realized the mistakes I had been making in my decade old career today and it explained so many things to me. Some annoyed bosses or missed promotions, all seemed to make proper sense to me.

He has neatly categorized the book into easy to follow chapters and started from the scratch not expecting the fresher to know a few basics also. He has explained the basics so well that by the time you reach the book’s end it will all unfold like sheer magic to you.

The author has used very simple and easy to understand language making it a very easy and enjoyable read. Thoroughly enjoyed it and strongly recommended to each and every fresher in today’s times THIS book is a must have on your shelves.

Foodie Verdict

This book is like mixed berry smoothie - healthy, delicious and makes you want more filling you with gyaan.
