Me thinks

Drawn from her own personal experiences this book is an inspirational book which draws lessons from none other than M S Dhoni. I have always been a fan of his and after watching his biopic he made me even a bigger fan. For me he is the best captain we have ever had, not to forget that got us the much coveted world cup (first after my birth) and that is a memory I will cherish a lot for a long time. I have always admired his down to earth nature despite the pinnacle of success he has touched. 
In this book the author takes snippets from his life and evaluates the lessons which can be learnt from him. He is one man who never preached, rather led a live which in itself was an example.  I loved the way the chapters have been broken down into small, easy to remember portions and are full of tables, charts, sketches and other such things which help you memorize them well enough to practice in real life. Some important one-liners, definitions and statements are highlighted in dark circles which are placed randomly across chapters. What makes this book stands out is the presentation as mentioned above. It ensures you can always go back to your favourite chapters/ portions to re-read and draw inspiration without reading the whole book. With simple and lucid language this book is a winner all the way.
Full marks to her research and presentation along with the lessons. This is one book that in inspiring in every sense. Strongly recommended for one and all because people like Dhoni are one in a lifetime kind of people, and so is a book on him. Don't miss reading this motivational story to add some magic of motivation to your life.
