Number of pages: 256

Publisher: QFORD

Genre: Self Help and Personal Development

Book Review:

Napoleon Hill brings yet another book in the motivational, personal development and self help domain after the bestselling book THE LAW OF SUCCESS

First of all, this book is not about getting rich only money wise but it also helps in enriching your personality, your life, and your relations which ultimately leads you to living a content life. It teaches how one can attain the riches by following the thirteen proven steps to riches. After reading this book, I am sure that your attitude towards life would change dramatically. One of the quotes from the book which I liked the most is:
"Whatever may be said in praise of poverty, the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really complete or successful life unless one is rich."

>>Check out more about the book and what people are saying about it.

Who doesn't want to get rich? Each one of you would be happy and content after getting rich. Although, it may be true what they say 'Money can't buy you happiness,' but poverty also will not give you happiness too. Getting rich is not by means of money only but one has to be rich by knowledge as well. Knowledge is power. Without specialized knowledge, it would be difficult to attain the desired riches. But the main thing is to put that knowledge into action. Rich people do that and they do it well.

If you have a dream in your mind and accumulate the desired wealth or even more than that, then you should read this book. The thirteen proven steps to riches would definitely change your mindsets. It will lead you to success if you put them in practice consistently. I have started following the principles after reading this book myself. It may seem like a distant dream but think of the destination rather than the journey; you will surely get through it. The book unleashes the power of the mind which, if used in a focused manner, is bound to give you the desired outcome. This book must be made compulsory in our education system whether it's school or college or Post Graduation, the education provided in this book must be taught at every level till the students get to know the in and out of it.


At first, it may seem difficult but after reading the book, the thought process changes. The point of view you need is taught by this book. I would rate this book as 5/5 as the steps provided in the book are simple to follow. What is needed is the willingness.

If you really want to get rich and respected, don't wait and buy this book below now. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!

Book Review: The other side of me by Sidney Sheldon

The other side of me by sidney sheldon
The other side of me by Sidney Sheldon

Title: The Other Side of Me

Author: Sidney Sheldon

Number of pages: 360

Publisher: Harper Collins Publishers

Genre: Autobiography

Book Review:

I generally don't prefer reading autobiographies as such but if it's of one of my favorite author's, I would definitely pick it up. Also, getting a 4.2 star rating from 19 ratings in all over Flipkart is not that easy :-)  The other side of me is the journey of Sidney Sheldon's life as a writer and definitely, worth reading.

The author has led a hard life being a writer, producer, director and an author. But as I was reading on his journey of life, I was enthralled by his consistent passion for his work that made him pass the times of famine smoothly. If you want to read an autobiography to know the life of that person, you can pick it up for reading. You will come to know the hardships of life a person faces while pursuing his ultimate dreams.

But if your intention is to read the life of a person and get inspired by his life, then I must say that you should DEFINITELY pick this up. The life of Sidney Sheldon teaches that how NOT giving up on your dreams is essential to get through the life with happiness. We all need to be happy at the end, right?

Many obstacles came along his way in all his capacities of various roles he played in his life like that of a father, a husband, a producer, a director and other numerous roles but he had a willingness to carry on. This led him pass those obstacles and achieve the life of his dreams. From shared rooms as paying guests to his own villas, it's a journey of life with lots of highs and lows which once you pick, you will not be able to put down. The most important part is that it leaves a inspiring note in your minds.

A quote at the beginning of the book, is as inspiring as the book itself. It goes:

'He that has no fools, knaves, nor beggars in his family was begot by a flash of lightning.'

                                                                                                                - THOMAS FULLER
                                                                        Seventeenth-century English clergyman


This book can't be rated as when I ask this question to myself that, 'What rating should I give to this book?', I get an answer every time, 'Who are you to rate the life of a person?'

For the writing style and the way the author has shared his life story, I would rate that style as 4.5/5. A MUST READ!

You can buy it NOW from Flipkart! Click below and buy at a discount. You won't be disappointed :-)

Need a gift? Check out IGP.com

Choosing a gift can be sometimes a daunting task. The more daunting task is, getting the gift you have selected. In the times of busy schedules, I  can't find time to select a gift outlet and go there to purchase that gift. I began searching online for gifts. The result, I was introduced to a wonderful gift portal IGP.com. Indian Gifts Portal has a collection of gifts for all occasions and for all relations like if you want to send a gift to a friend, they have a vast collection ranging from budget gifts to premium gifts. The best thing about them is, faster delivery times. I ordered a watch. You can take a look at the picture below:

Indian Gifts portal Gift

A friend's birthday was approaching and I was in a hurry to buy a gift. I browsed through the site and selected  and ordered a gift as well on 23rd June, 2015, night. The gift was delivered successfully on 26th morning. A fast service indeed. Moreover, if you have friends or relatives outside India, you can send Festival Gifts to them as well. IGP is an online gift store which offers international delivery options to USA, UK etc. They have gifts in almost all categories like Chocolates, Mithais, Fashion, Jewellery, Handbags, Toys, Games etc.

An interesting feature which I liked is that they also have priority delivery options like if you want it delivered before standard delivery times, they have provisions for that as well. Now, I am planning to purchase a gift from IGP.com for my sister on the occasion of Rakhi. For all sisters who need to send Rakhi to their brothers who are living within or outside India, then check out Send Rakhi Online for a cool collection of Rakhis.

I would rate my shopping experience with IGP.com as 4.5/5 as it was my first shopping experience with them and they didn't disappoint me at all!
