      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

    Must read for those who've contemplated returning home

    I picked this book from the airport and pretty much finished it in one go. The way the book is laid out is nicely done and is a must watch for those who want to go back to their hometown but is concerned about career growth prospects and the ability to convince leadership.

    I highly recommend this book and it pretty much details a lot of things which one wouldnt have thought about when planning to work remotely. I forwarded this book to my Leaders as well .
