      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      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.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Realities of startup life

    The book talks about the ground realities of running a startup. Rather than just glamorizing startups, unlike most people, it gives anecdotes including how difficult it can be to fire your friend and similar situations.

    Excellent read for budding CEOs

    I like buying management books but have seldom gone past the 3rd chapter.

As a first time Founding CEO, I could relate to almost every word written in this book. The advice is less of an advice and more of sharing of experience of what worked for the author and what did not. I would say a must read for both peacetime and wartime CEO, first time e...
