What is the estimated delivery time?
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.
For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.
The Seller might not have the item in stock but can procure it when an order is placed. The delivery time will depend on the estimated procurement time and the estimated shipping time to your location.
'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'
Such items are expected to be released soon and can be pre-booked for you. The item will be shipped to you on the day of it's official release launch and will reach you in 2 to 6 business days. The Preorder duration varies from item to item. Once known, release time and date is mentioned. (Eg. 5th May, August 3rd week)

Currently, the item is not available for sale. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know once it is available for purchase.
Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

This book has so many funny details of incidents and people working in IT industry that I was unable to control my laugh all the way. Thing which touched me most was the description of conversation which takes place between people who have been to onsite and the one who haven't. It was totally hilarious.
Marriage of a IT professional, how he travels to office, how much time he spends in travelling, what he does when he is on bench, appraisals, resignation, onsite experience, chocolates which they get, how a project manager, leader, team lead, and team member work, how appraisals happen.

Purchased this book from Flipkart after reading many positive reviews and I must say it's totally worth all the hype it has build up.
Don't go after many negative reviews citing "not so Humorous book" or "boring book" . People with those kind of reviews must be very frustrated with their lives already.
This book is not only for those in IT or s/w industry, even all corporates can co-relatye with it.
The book correctly portrays what happens in corporate and bet me on this you would find the written stuff very true and close. And the way author has put up his satirical... (Expand)
I will quote from the PREFACE of this book:
"By qualification I am an electrical engineer.
By profession, I am a software developer turned tester turned production support analyst turned business analyst!"
So true! The lines were an instantly struck a chord with me and compelled me to buy the book! Of the four stages of the professional life-cycle of a software engineer mentioned by Dipen, I am very lucky (read unfortunate) to directly introduced to the third stage - production support analyst! Many of us join jobs and trained as "software developers" only to turn up... (Expand)
To be honest the book started a bit low on my expectations but Gained Momentum after first 35-40 pages and did not loose it till the end ! The comparisons made by Dipen in the book are pretty hillarious and ( Real too ! ) . And the concept of "Richa's And Ajays" ,Appraisal meetings , three most happy days in life of a "Softie" and the "Production support" are right on the spot ! :)
Though this book shows the hillarious side of the IT world, for the future Guys,just a general word of caution : This world is also full of some real smart and hardworking people,bu... (Expand)
The book is a good but if you hoping that this is a story, it is not.
It is more like a induction manual with tits and bits about ow to survive in the Software Industry.
My reason for not rating high:
- Could have been made more interesting read.
- The tables and repetitive section could have b... (View complete review)
The book certainly busts misconceptions when it comes to the 'Softie world' as the author calls it, and by use of comparisons and exaggerations presents a generalized, oversimplified of the life of a Soft Engr. It's hard to believe that this is what people are running after! (View complete review)
