Before reading this book, it would be good if one has a fair idea as to what this book is all about. Certainly, it is not a book that you can pick on a lazy Sunday, whereas if you are a non-native speaker of English and you look forward to having that polished edge that differentiates a good speaker… (View complete review)

Exaggeration

if you're seriously looking to increase your word power, then this book is definitely not for you. Author has mistakenly put wrong title for his auto-biography. However, t could be a good read but not for what title is intended for.

First to review

An inspiring read

Manish Gupta is an honest, forthright and gregarious banker who has labored over the book for close to two decades. And he doesn't disappoint. The text is anecdotal and racy and words along with some interesting trivia keep popping out as you flip through the book. Read it not just to improve your word power or ken, but also as a work that reflects the predicament of an average Indian student for whom learning the nuances of English language is as important as scoring well in academics, and how it can become a process of joyful self learning as Manish, a glib talker now, discovered

Amazing Book - A must read!

Usually am awry of books which claim to teach English or for that matter even the Spoken English classes as I firmly believe it is something that cannot be taught. It can be only learnt on your own and this book proved me wrong.

The author has written an amazing hand book mixing his own experiences with the some basic rules to be followed to master this language and he is bang on! the tiny notes at the bottom of each page along with illustrations make it a wonderful read and this is definately something that I will keep coming back to time and again to polish my skills further.

An excellent book!

As some wise man had quipped - It is better to learn from others mistakes than from your own. Manish Gupta through his English Bites not only explains the meaning of 'faux pas' but also lists down several of the ones that he seems to have committed. It is these tales that make the book an interesting read. A great treasure for the ones who feel challenged with English and a refresher for those who think they know (you are sure to learn something new).
Some people tend to get bogged down by the numerous (and helpful) footnotes. They can do well to enjoy the book looking down for reference onl

Being a guy who is born and brought up in Trivandrum, I can identify myself with Manish in the book as the narrative is quite autobiographical. Manish is magnanimous in placing himself in the narrative, mostly at the receiving end of things. His self-d

Worthy of the bucks...

You are making a major folly considering this book an academic book. It is way more fun than that.

The book surely will add over 1000 words to your vocabulary, but I doubt its uses in our daily life. Come on, who uses difficult words instead of easy ones to deliver one's emotions. On the other hand, the same difficult words improves one's English and their confidence, enabling them to face larger audiences.

I have to agree that, at times, it gets a way monotonous. The read becomes laborious to continue, but the interesting anecdotes, the brief depths of the actual English language, was one r
