      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.

      What do the different tags like 'In Stock', 'Available' mean?

      'In Stock'

      Products‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      'Available'

      Products listed as ‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'

      'Out of Stock'

      'Imported'

      Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

      'Back In Stock Soon'

      The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

      'Temporarily Unavailable'

      'Out of Print'

      This product is not available because it is no longer published and has been permanently discontinued.

      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.

    Good Read

    Is the author suggesting that we give up even before we have started or he telling this story to guide / warn us of the pitfalls in companies? I don’t think I want to stop running since I am ambitious but great learning from the book

    Decent book

    This book met my expectations. Five star rating from me. Most appealing thing about this novel is, all characters start at bottom and target to reach the top. It isnt the case of, one of them, being owners son, just walks into the corner office. All characters have to work hard for it and apply every possible means to get there. But in the end, only a few succeed.

    Quick Read

    I was so curious abt this book, largely cos of its title. After reading the book, I have to say, the Title, Describes the book perfectly. Five Characters start their careers with only one goal, making it to the top job in their organization. Book covers everything they have to do to get there, circumstances they face, sacrifices they have to make. Sadly not all make it. All in all its a good buy.

    Interesting Plot

    The special thing about this book is its 'Plot', which takes place inside a MNC and almost everyone can easily associate with it, not just their working lifestyle as well as their personal lives. When you start reading, it may sound like, something we all have seen at our workplace but the ending WILL surprise you.

    Everyone's Dream - Corner Office

    This line at the end "People would come and People would go, but Trust Corporation would exist, thrive and go on forever" sums it up really well. People will come and go but companies which are build to last, stay in one form or another. Author has demonstrated very well how good and bad times for companies as well as its employees come and go. How it changes the path of employees but in the end its business as usual.
