Here's a Unique Book for You!

by Prabhulla P April 1, 2012

Dear friend

 With great pleasure, I wish to let you know that my first book "It is time to Sharpen your Axe - Become a Smarter You" has just been released by Pentagon Press, Delhi. 


There is no need to reach high for the stars. They are already within you - just reach deep into yourself! 


The book has evolved from my belief that inside each one of us is a winner, a leader, and an excellent performer. However, in many of us, it is lying dormant, waiting patiently to escape, to surface, to manifest itself and to realize its potential. So the ball is in our court…we need to toss the ball in the right direction and steer our life to the top gear.  


You wish to be Smarter? You crave to lead the life of your dreams? You aspire to be a winner, a leader, and an outstanding & brilliant performer? If the answer to any of these questions is “yes”, there is undoubtedly no time to pause - get a move on with the book “It is time to Sharpen your Axe – Become a Smarter You”.


This is a book that calls the reader to action…a book which will help him, guide him to become the person he wants to be. Through innumerable real life examples and stories, the book gives him guidelines to follow, strategies to consider and mistakes to avoid. It will bring out the best in him and help him see his professional life transforming from one of dragging along, failing, or simply refusing to thrive, into one of success, focus, direction, passion and fulfillment.
