It makes you feel refreshed and at the same time keeps you thinking as to what the next anecdote might be about. Is it going to be serious or humorous? Or is it going to be sarcastic? These questions keep up with the pace of a vast arena of possibilities of incidents in the real world. With a slight pinch of cynicism and real life problems faced by anyone and everyone, this book is a compilation of the finest anecdotes ever.

How to be positive when in a tough situation and react calmly is portrayed in a big manner. Though the author seems to have been very clear in his mind regarding the phrases and words to be used, some of the content is dreamy in a positive way.

We all have our thoughts, beliefs, superstitions that are imprinted in our minds – these very beliefs are examined in the book.
