      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.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      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.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      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.

    Not Bad!

    Obviously the author took more efforts in bringing down all the words that he could use and tried out a chance of using all the vocabs that he has ever learnt..

    I would suggest that being his first book, he could write up using simple words of vocabulary so everyone could be benefited. As a matter of fact, I was was literally using a dictionary to find out the meaning for many words.

    Apart from that, this book is really good! Well done Sumit! Hope you consider my request to be more simple i...

    Let the fun begin!

    The first day at work is unforgettable for most of us for the same reason that other 'firsts' are memorable. This book is a racy account of Aniket's first day at work. The narrative is crisp, the pacing is fast, the language is fresh and the metaphors will make you chuckle. Kudos to the author for describing the most humdrum people/places/things with a touch of style. It's an entertaining ride all the way. Whether you're about to step in to the big bad world of corporates or have been torment...

    Ok. Can read it once.

    Book does not gives you any shocking incidence as the name suggest. Though one can relate to oneself in at couple of instances, i didn't find the book worth it!. But really a good attempt by author. Can be read during travel or in a coffee shop.

    Office blues anyone?

    A perfect read for all the office minions out there. The author, Sumit Aggarwal, gives an interesting and humorous account of the first workday of a freshly graduated MBA. Don't write this one off as just another of the many books taking a dig at corporate life, the treatment given by the author is fresh and will definitely leave you asking for more. Awaiting the sequel!!
