Description

The Habit of Winning is a book that takes a close look at people who make it a habit to win and understand what makes them tick.

Summary Of The Book

The Habit Of Winning is a compilation of the life stories of several great personalities like Mahatma Gandhi, Sachin Tendulkar, Randy Pausch and Charlie Plumb. The author also identifies their common traits, some of which are perseverance, team spirit and hard work. The author further elaborates that it is these traits that help a person face difficult times and pave their way to success. The author explicitly states that one does not learn everything he needs to, in books.

The author also uses incidents from his own life to illustrate his points, so much so that the book in itself becomes a collection of several individual short stories. It has the ability to alter how one thinks, lives and works. The author reinstates the belief in his readers that winning is a habit that everyone should acquire. Stories work well in helping an author put his message across to the readers. The incidents in the book are thrilling, leading the readers to be motivated to lead their lives with renewed energy, passion and a sense of purpose. They are short narrations with a moral given at the end of each. The book lets the user make a difference, in his own life, and in that of those around him.

The book has been widely appraised and has been on the list of top 10 books on business management published by Business Standard. It has also been accorded the status of the most selling non-fiction book by Economic Times.

There is no laundry list of dos and don’ts, there is no moral lecturing, there is no pontificating – the author imparts his message through stories.

It will change your perception

The book is tremendously written. I finished it in one go & then I regretted that I should have spent more time to read such exceptional book.

I have read it many times since then as the book has just so much to offer. The more I read it, the more I love it.

Each individual can find stories he/she can relate to and change their view towards things to make life better.

Apart from the phenomenal stories, the way those stories are written, its just amazing. That's what makes the book even mor...
