      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.

    Flipkart Official Review

    Siddharth Agarwal also known as Sid is a mess. His fifteen-year long marriage is falling apart. His parents are selfish and do not seem to understand his point of view. His boss is being a boss. His friends do not care. So everything is literally falling apart. With all of this happening in his life, Neha makes an entry – a single mom, full of charm, wit and confidence. Will she be the answer to all his problems? For that, you have to read this book.

    Yashodhara Lal’s writing is witty and also full of empathy. It is a wonder that being a woman she has created a full-rounded, flawed and confused male protagonist. I think everyone can relate to Sid and what he goes through. At the same time, the writing is lucid and does not stretch too much on any one issue or scene. A light read for a day that you do not want something literary.


    A thirty-six year old finds his life breaking apart in front of him with his marriage failing, his parents demeaning him and his friends backstabbing him. Yashodhara Lal’s Sorting Out Sid is the story of how one single mom arrives into his life, and perhaps lends it light once again.Siddharth Aggarwal’s life was good. He had been married for fifteen years now, his friends loved him and he was about to become the company’s youngest Vice President ever. But behind the calm front, his life is actually falling apart. His marriage is on the verge of failing disastrously, his parents think he is still a teenager and his friends are backstabbing him continuously. Add a machiavellian HR to the recipe and his life becomes a live volcano waiting to erupt. Enter Neha, a sprightly single mom who seems to be everything Sid has been missing in his life. Of course, she could also be the one reactant this mixture has been missing to let everything explode in Sid’s face. Sorting Out Sid is a tale of wit, humour and life’s finest details.

    A light and funny read, with interesting characters and situations that were easy to relate to.

    Sorting Out Sid is, not surprising, about a guy called Sid who is caught in a mid-life crisis of sorts. His marriage is falling apart, his best friend appears to have betrayed him, his job sucks and he keeps putting his foot in his mouth when talking to Neha, a cute single mum he meets at a party. Throw in a kooky tarot card reader, a bossy and interfering female friend, a disapproving father and (wait for it) a beanbag that is also a shoulder to cry on, and you can begin to imagine the madne...

    A Great Read !

    Yashodhara Lal has a special skill to induce laughter even from day-to-day mundane incidents and Sorting Out Sid is a book which is sure to make you smile . Meeting the protagonist Siddharth Agarwal aka Sid is like meeting a guy-next-door. We are so acquainted with his idiosyncrasies , his unintentional messing up of things " So ! when is the baby due ? " ..he blurts out as soon as he points a slightly bulging tummy ! Just think of the embarrassment of the lady who fails to shed tha...

    Hilarity and depth

    Yashodhara paints her characters the way life is – in shades of grey rather than black or white and that’s what makes them so real and so appealing. All the characters in the book have interesting stories of their own interwoven with Sid’s personal and professional woes as he stumbles his way bravely through the trials life throws at him

    Laced throughout with her trademark humour, the book deals with issues and people that are a part of everyone’s life and will make you reflect about some o...

    A great gift for the men in your life

    Faced with a career that is going nowhere, a failing marriage and parents you do your best to avoid, what do you do?

    Sid does all the things we do: drink too much, eat too little, mess up at work and jump to all the wrong conclusions. The real strength of this book is in its refusal to judge anybody, not the clinging parents, not the hysterical wife, and certainly not our messed up, tossed up hero.

    Written in fluent, funny prose, Sorting Out Sid is a perfect slice of our lives. There's a lo...

    It's the story of a man and his struggle with being 'grown up/being a man' though chronologically (he is 36) and on paper (career wise, financially, etc) he 'is'. The author accomplishes 3 things while telling us Sid's story:
    1) She captures the hilarity of his struggle to the fullest.
    2) Tells us a story which surprisingly hasn't been told before (at least not so entertainingly!)
    3) She creates characters that one can 'touch and feel'. My personal favorite was Akash, Sid's 'dhakkan' but 'tho...

    Sorting out Sid - A Journey of Excitement, Humour, and Dreams

    It is a must go book if you want a light right while you take a two hour flight or a train. It is a pretty good book for going on a reading ride.

    When I started reading this book, I was like ohh wow...he is like me, like my room mate, or like my boss. I can relate to the character, the setting, and everything around in the book. There is a good, passionate, and hard working character Sidharth aka Sid. There is her wife Mandira and then his passions for poetry, lively evenings, and after all...
