Took my time reading this book and it's worth it!

I love how raw and straightforward the content is. It gives you what you expect and what you did not expect at all!

People say such books are just theory. But we got to believe we have to take the best practical tips from such books in order to get the best out of it.

And I sure did.

What's different about this new book?

It focuses on the indifferent scenario of second chance hiring and how it will affect your investment and business.

The updated scenario in today's working system with well explained figures and examples.

Who is this book for?

I would say the language is apt even for beginners, the students and the ones who are at the top of their business/company.

Before you pick up this book, you have to believe you will gain something out of it.

Thank you, HarperCollins Leadership, for the advance reading copy.

The book will not take much of your time. It's easy to follow and will make you understand the core concepts pretty easily.
