In The Habit of Winning, author Prakash Iyer tries to identify that special quality that makes for winners. The format of the book is interesting, making it an easy read. The author tells us stories of people like Sachin Tendulkar, Charlie Plumb, Mahatma Gandhi, Randy Pauch and a host of other winners. They all have a particular trait - hard work, perseverance or being a good team player – which gives them the ability to fight the odds and scale success.
The Habit of Winning is almost like a book of short stories. Each chapter has stories to narrate and within this story, we find that the author has highlighted the attributes that help us to make winning a habit. Prakash Iyer does not restrict himself to giving us winning stories about individuals. He narrates and focuses on what it is that makes even a cockroach or a rabbit a winner. The book also acknowledges the fact that there is a lot that you do not learn at management school. It is the challenge of everyday living that sometimes gives you the attributes that make you a winner.
This self-help book also has a lot of personal elements. The author has picked up incidents from his life to better illustrate his philosophy. The book definitely gives the reader plenty of information on how to inculcate the attributes that help making winning a habit.
General Reception and Other Adaptations
The Habit of Winning made it to the Business Standard's top 10 books on business management. It was also the No 1 in the Economic Times non-fiction best seller list.

I would suggest you to read this and also to recommend others.
This is one of the book which truely deserves the place in your bookshelf
If you are a avid online reader then there is a ebook too for you:
The Habit of Winning is not a seminal work nor is it an earth shaking management classic. It is a cleanly written, easy to read, attractively packaged affordable paperback which will appeal to the common man looking for a tip or two for self improvement. There is no laundry list of dos and don’ts, there is no moral lecturing, there is no pontificating – the author imparts his message through stories. And, mind you, most of these are contemporary real life stories which you can relate with these and not teaching stories or inspirational gems of ancient wisdom, parables or fables, except for a few familiar ones like The Water Bearer, The Cracked Pot and Making a Difference, The Starfish Way.
The book is very readable. The chapters are short, just one story per chapter, and end with a message encapsulating the gist of the story. A good pick me up, you can open any page, start reading anywhere, and finish a chapter in a couple of minutes, this book is an ideal companion while travelling or waiting or just about anywhere.
The meat of the book is not in the middle, but right at the beginning in Part I – VISION AND GOALS in which I particularly liked the chapter DON’T CHANGE YOUR RABBIT that emphasises the importance of focus which I feel is most relevant today where you are surrounded by an environment of distractions and multitasking. I will not tell you any more about the stories in the book – those you must read and enjoy yourself.
I commend this book. You will enjoy reading it and I am sure you will gain something from it too (like I did – about unfinished tasks) and the book will help you improve your life, both professionally and personally.
Do get a copy of THE HABIT OF WINNING. It is certainly worth having in your bookcase. And better still, this book will make an ideal gift, so don’t forget to present a copy to your boss, your colleagues and friends.

This book has a collection of small but true story on different aspects of person's working and thinking attitudes.These stories take a topic i.e. perseverance, and explain it with real life example of Indian celebrity.
Book is written in easy language and good enough to comprehends quickly.
The topics covered are not new and easily can be found in western books but I liked lucid explanation of every topic.
All story end with a sentence saying the moral of the story that can be rememberized and thus motivate and inspire yourself all the time.
I recommend whole-heartily this book to everyone primarily Indian who follows these celebrity very closely in their life. They know their present success and cherish for it but does not know the painstaking efforts they have endured to achieve it.
Its one of my best buy at Flipkart and I bought because it was best seller at that time. The most important thing is the chapters are small stories with few lines at end about the chapter which author wants to convey.
You actually enjoy reading the book and feel improvement in your thoughts when you face the situations described in book next time in life.
You get a lot of motivation by the great chinese saying "the right time to plant a tree was twenty years back and the next right time is now"
One more : "if you think you can you can, if you think you cant, you are right".
Hats off to author and thanx.
