A must read for all looking to build a great career

This is a great book to learn some of the most important professional habits, which sadly, are not taught in any of the educational institutes.

I personally liked author’s take on improving personal effectiveness and was really impressed with the way he has explained locus of control by taking examples from his own life. Also, the topic on saving early by investing in low risk policies like PPF is a good point.

This is a must read book for people looking to build habits for success!

Easy read for the students to enter the professional world

It is an excellent book covering various aspects of professional habits which are very helpful.

I like the PPF (Public Provident Fund) policy which is very well described in the book. It make us realize the habit of early investments, which most of the freshers don't realize.

Must read for all the fresh graduates as well as experienced professionals.
