ok.... sort of..

After reading his Ramayana Series and Krishna Coriolis, you tend to expect high things out of Ashok Bnker. The book, supposedly not a self help book, reads like one, and a boring one at that. Three people’s stories extremely predictable, and therefore uninteresting. If you are expecting a Prince of Ayodhya sort of thing, you will be hugely disappointed. Buy it only if you are a huge fan of the author (like myself) and can read anything he writes in his style – even if it is crap.

First to review

So boring i could kill!

Such a boring and amateur sense of writing. Very very disappointed.

I felt like i was reading a play..,.. and does it speak of something new? Absolutely nothing. No indepth insights. The story line of each of the characters does not captivate the reader and really very very poor literature.

Dont waste your money.

The Valmiki Syndrome

The author has tried to bring out the ancient wisdom as applicable to the contemporary issues faced by today's youth with high aspirations and struggling to get the best of both the worlds. The book may get a little boring in between because of the lengthy narrative of the stories, however, i feel the last few chapters put everything in the right context that the author is trying to articulate. It gives a macro view of balancing various aspects of life, specifically career, family and personal fulfilment. It does not provide any quick fix that today's readers are more used to and that may be a

Very ordinary

After reading the review given in the cover page of the book, i got impressed and purchased the book. The book started well with stories in different dimensions. At the end of the story the author tried to give the tactics of balancing career and family but he failed. The last chapters of the book is totally vague. There are more number of repetition and there is no concrete message given about balancing family and career. Totally vague...

The Title tells you all

Ashok Banker is one of my fav authors. I loved his Ramayana series and I am glued to the MBa series..

I ordered this novel just because of Ashok Banker...This book goes about telling 3 different stories ... each one revolving around the same theme. The author has tried to explain the importance of work life balance in a ll his stories. So in a way, the only outcome of this book is that finding the work-life balance is important. And the title very precisely says the same thing.
