    Pitch It ! Amazing Book, innovative, interesting and a perfect blend of Management and Cricket

    Pitch It ! is an amazing Management Book. Innovative, interesting and absolutely fascinating and a delight to read. Devoid of boring management jargons, this book is refreshingly different. It has 60 very interesting cricketing incidents and these are seamlessly knit with corporate case studies. A very good ‘light read’. Superb !

    A new idea - an interesting read

    Cricket is one of those things to which Indians can relate to instantly. That makes it one of the most useful medium to convey a set of ideas easily to the Indians. Mr. Dev Prasad did a fabulous job of using cricket to describe complex corporate case studies in a lucid and palatable manner. The book appeals both the mass and the class. Kudos to the author.
