Living With Honour is about how important it is to get out of difficult situations without resorting to unethical or immoral means.
Summary Of The Book
Living With Honour is a book that presents a number of situations where a person may be in an imbroglio with seemingly no way out. However, there is always a way out. Sometimes, when there is a sticky situation, an unethical or even illegal way out may seem to be the best option.
However, Shiv Khera, the author, speaks of how one must stick to principles and make sure that the means of getting out of a problem are above board. The author speaks of how living with honour is essential, and that although an immoral solution may seem alluring, it is only temporary and will weigh heavily upon the conscience.
The author says that whenever a person is making a choice of any kind, he or she must keep in mind the principles of honour. He says that a person needs to have certain qualities in his or her life such as consistency, integrity and courage in order to lead an exemplary life.
An important feature of Living With Honour is that every point that the author makes is backed with a quote, a poem or a short story, so that the different concepts introduced are absorbed by readers as they are meant to be, and can be remembered easily.
Living With Honour is essentially a workbook for self-evaluation, helping readers understand themselves and improve their character. The book was a success, selling seventy five thousand copies as soon as it was released.
