Book Review:

The book was recommended by a friend. Without giving it a second thought, I bought this book after seeing lots of positive reviews about the book and the praise for the author. This is one of the best behavioral books to read for all!

The book is divided into four parts giving a thorough study of 30 principals all meant to be very much helpful for any person in life. The best part I liked about the book is that I could relate some of the case incidents quoted by the author, Dale Carnegie with my life and I found them to be absolutely right. 

The book is very well researched and presented in a very precise manner. This book should be included in the school as well as college curriculum and should be read at least one time every year to keep the principles in mind. No matter you are in any industry whether it is marketing, finance, healthcare etc., if you follow the principles in this book. you definitely will find it relate able and a worthy read.


I would give the book 5/5 though a rating of 5/5 would also be not that sufficient for the amount of research and significant effort that has been done to write the book. Truly recommended book for all!

Shopping at, my experience!

John Players Black formal Shirt

When it comes to online shopping, I remain skeptical while buying clothes. I keep asking questions like will the size be fit or not? Will the product be genuine or not and similar. This time I gave a try to buy something to remove all my doubts. The only website I kept in mind for buying clothes was I have heard a lot about it, my friends have had experience buying clothes and accessories. The only person left was me who haven't even given it  a thought.  I simply browsed the site and looked at the wide variety of the products available. Then a question aroused in my mind, "What to buy?" After giving a thought for about three long hours, I decided to buy a formal black shirt as I didn't have one :)

Shirt purchased from Jabong packing

I ordered one placed under 'John Players' from and got an intimation of the delivery time to be 2-3 business days though I expected it to arrive early then that. I ordered it on Sunday night and I got it delivered on Tuesday itself. A quick service is what gave me a viewpoint that really I was wrong about all the doubtful questions that clouded my mind earlier. I had a great experience with online shopping for the shirt through

Book Review - Bloodline by Sidney Sheldon

bloodline by sidney sheldon book review

Title:- Bloodline

Author:- Sidney Sheldon

Number of Pages:- 409

Publisher:- HarperCollins Publishers India 

Genre:- Fiction/Thriller


I recently finished reading the book of one of my favorite authors. Every other book I pick of his, I am sure of finding something new in his works. Sidney Sheldon, the author of bloodline has done a remarkable job in this tale of love, lust and death.

The best part about the recent works I have read of his is that he starts with the life of the characters from their beginning and leaves no stone unturned in disclosing the life events of them. It becomes a loop of chained events that led to opening up the real suspense at the climax.

The crux of this story is that an owner of one of the largest pharmaceutical companies, Roffe and Sons dies in an accident. His daughter, the sole heir to his billion dollar fortune must take the entire responsibility of the gigantic empire. But the problem is someone wants her dead. The tale is absorbing, nail biting and very well crafted by the author. The series of events will take you on a roller coaster ride of ambition, intrigue and danger.     


I would rate this book as 4.5/5 as the author has done his work impeccably. He is successful in maintaining the suspense and intrigue in the story.
