The Best Thing About You Is You! (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs.450

The Best Thing About You Is You! is a humble and honest endeavor by the author, an actor, to assimilate a lifetime’s wisdom and give it back as a gift.

Summary Of The Book

The wisdom behind the book lies in the thought that there are more lessons to be learned through failures than through success. Keeping this mantra in mind, Anupam Kher, an adorned Indian actor with over 450 movies and 100 plays to his credit, brings together in this book his life’s true savings, his experiences.

Kher accurately examines just how much unhappiness has seeped into the society. Despite our successes, most of us spend our days worried and stressed. Anupam Kher stresses on how we must consciously teach ourselves to live in the present. An entire chapter is dedicated to the topic of unhappiness in this book.

Though the genre of self-help books is ever-growing, The Best Thing About You Is You! does not promise to be a game-changer. It recognizes the simple fact that by positivity alone, a lot can be achieved. In that, lies its success.

Spread across 50 chapters, the actor-turned-life-coach talks about his tested mantras of success, pragmatic everyday things to do to become a no-nonsense person, coping with life and death, dealing with anger management, unhappiness, unfulfilled relationships and much more.

Through the book, the reader gets a glimpse into the personal life and struggles of the actor. Kher takes examples from the world over to emphasize the importance of positivity and self-motivation in the journey of self-realization.

The Best Thing About You Is You! also contains excerpts from Anupam Kher’s play Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai.

Humble Down to Earth thoughts from a person who operates in Glamour Industry

I had preordered this book & I am glad that it turns out to be a must have in ones collection. The book covers Indian Lifestyle trends & learning's from the same (usually we came across authors from US which have events/persons of US origin for which couple of times we have to google).
What comes more handy is personal experience of Mr.Kher who hails from Middle class family & made a big mark in Bollywood. It is amazing to see that a person who operates in Show Biz has such down to earth thoughts. The book is divided into chapters which are not more than 2 pages.

The book is any time read & offers valuable insights on how to live, motivation, inspiration and covers all aspects of life making it valuable for all ages.
It is also true that a person who is a fan of motivational books might not find topics as new but the correlation to them in Indian context makes this book a must have.
I am booking more copies so that I can gift them to my near & dear ones on New Year. Well done Mr.Kher

Undoubtedly A Must Have collection.IT WILL BE AMONG MY MOST FAB_ONES.

I had preordered the book and Received on time."FLIPKART Guies"...HATS OFF;EXCELLENT SERVICE,EXCELLENT PACKAGING.

NOW LET ME CLEAR THAT, THE BOOK IS WORTH CALLING A REAL EXPERIENCE.
Mr Anupam Kher has GREAT WRITING SKILLS in terms of EXPRESSING what he has EXPERIENCED.
PURE WRITING. FAR BEYOND COPY PASTE. I BET A SINGLE REVIEW IS ENOUGH TO MAKE UR NERVES FIT FOR REVERBERATING LIFE.

LOVED THE LINES BY PANDIT AMARNATH "Bheega Hua Aadmi Barish Se Nahin Darta".

50 chapters and 228 pages!

The book covers almost all the issues a person goes through in his life time.You don't really find anything which is contradictory.I mean you keep on agreeing consciously to whatever the author says!

In the postscript the author says "This is a book that showcases the graph of my life". Everyone has his/her own life graph,to which no one may refer to but this life graph of the author is worth referring to!

A very good book to read ..

Book is an awesome read. Simple, Elegant, wonderful way of writing. Examples used in the book are quite normal, which happens in our regular life. The pictures used in each chapter are also appealing esp. when you want to get down to deeper levels of introspection. Anupam Kher's correlation with so many ideas from different books, plays is something which i really liked. If you can read a chapter in the morning as well as in the night before going to bed, it makes your mind much more relaxed and the points mentioned in each chapter are more or less happening in our regular life.

Language, Narration and style of writing are commendable. A self help book with simple real time examples are the main pluspoints. A good book that can be gifted to all our dear ones.

As Interesting as the Actor

Self improvement books seem to be hits in the present society. True. With many people well educated and employed with loads of money and powerful positions the bane of stress, pressure and mental turbulence also find its place in the lives of younger and middle age generations.

Well, what we actually search for? Actor Anupam Kher starts with the chapter ???We are all Unhappy???. The title itself makes even the happiest man to go through the chapter. The following 49 chapters are surprisingly very precise discuss the mental problems and societal pressures prevailing in our day to day activ...

Self improvement books seem to be hits in the present society. True. With many people well educated and employed with loads of money and powerful positions the bane of stress, pressure and mental turbulence also find its place in the lives of younger and middle age generations.

Well, what we actually search for? Actor Anupam Kher starts with the chapter ???We are all Unhappy???. The title itself makes even the happiest man to go through the chapter. The following 49 chapters are surprisingly very precise discuss the mental problems and societal pressures prevailing in our day to day activities.

Kher surprises the reader as he used to amaze us in the films be it a role of a bereaved poor school teacher in his debut film or the cranky, silly, irritating villain or dignified dad in his countless movies. The reason is he is as eloquent in his analysis and writing as he is in his acting.

The book may be a hit with many since Kher deals with the lives of middle and upper class. His theories and suggestions could mean something to them. The language is simple but smart. The topics are interesting. The contents are not taxing. The book is aesthetically made. What else is needed for making a good book?
