    To the author with love

    This book's front page claims ,, "India’s first book which will guide you, motivate.........." Oh really!! Actually it seems to be , writer’s first book :) ,
    Look guys any vocabulary book, will get its words ,pages marked ,highlighted, underlined and for that the paper quality has to be good enough, contrary to this, the paper quality in this book is not that good. If I mark or highlight a word, this marking or highlighting can be seen from the back side of paper, in simple words the pap...

    Author review..

    A book for all English lovers. It helps in augmenting one’s vocabulary naturally. The flow, the beginning and the bottom line of every story defines the beauty of this book. It broadens your horizons as the author has chosen a plethora of different topics to catch your fancy. It is a textbook; unlike a textbook. You will look forward to each chapter, unfolding something new to discover for you. The author has added a light touch of humour, which makes reading enjoyable, while simultaneously d...

    Not only Vocab Builder, but also General Knowledge builder

    I bought this book basically to learn words. But as I went through, I found this book provides much more than Vocab words. In many fields i was taught with basic knowledge. It also helped me to improve my reading speed. Thanks to the author and publications for such a nice book

    Edutaining

    AS a student preparing for XAT right now, i am thrilled with this book coz its helpful in learning pretty tough words in a play way.
    The articles are very educative and can prove a big help in cracking PIs and GDs ,too.Since the XAT has now a humanities section too, the stories on history,literature and psyhcology give confidence to Engg students,

    a breeze of fresh air

    These are media stories,not fictional stories -perhaps the author intends to engage students from a wide academic background.However the angle from which author has written is very unusual- for example how internet has changed various businesses as well as the society ; how will the future homes function; will pen/pencils become obsolete;why are the airlines always in loss?
    The mini dictionary-within-the book concept is very handy. The level of word difficulty (in stories) is moderately toug...
