I must start by saying that it was interesting going through the book. Starting more as a fiction, it adopts overtones of non-fiction (management category) and then ends on a dramatic note. Personally, I liked the roller-coaster and hope that majority too would. – Rajiv Sahni
I was desperate to know, what Nisha will do next. The topic on which you have written is something, which is very sensitive and at the same time, today’s requirement. Every company should have a person like Nisha in their company. – CA Naamah Retiwala

Sunil has put together an interesting e book from his blogs. The style is unique, short and to the point. The subjects covered offer a wide variety on management and are handy and provide quick solutions/suggestions.
The writing style includes SMS lingo to some extent. Its a fine effort to bring everything in a single volume. I hope that he will develop the idea further by expanding the bullet points into detailed reasoned arguments and turn this into a full fledged book.
