    A must for technical as well as non technical.

    I would say that without reading this book do not start your first job. The language is very simple and the author seems to give priority to deliver his message rather than using jargon.
    At this cost it is extremely value for money.

    Excellent guide for first time managers

    I found this book valuable as it is a good reminder for some of the great techniques that I’ve been following. I was fortunate to implement most of the techniques mentioned in the book first hand and witness the benefits associated with them. Some of my personal favorites are Locus of control, Plan ahead, and Checklist. As a manager, I use this book is a great tool to help my team understand the benefits of following these simple techniques. I also liked the explanation of the New Framework ...

    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!

    Simple yet very effective

    This is a brilliant book. Rajeev has covered many basic skills required for professional success. He has shared his experiences on how he has managed time, health, money and simple tools which all of us can use to manage these basic building blocks of success.

    I think there is something for everyone to get from this book. May it be from Rajeev's experiences or may it be from excellent quotes sprinkled throughout the book.

    And to top it all, its a very easy read. Took me an hour to finish ...
