Review: Lady You're Not A Man by Apurva Purohit
Motivational & Inspirational books are available everywhere in the market today. But something to motivate women is a rarity. A few days back I went through one of them. Now here again we have something for the women to cherish about. Author Apurva Purohit in her book "Lady You're Not A Man" tries to take the women for a ride of their lives. So is she successful in putting through the right message? Let's find out.
First look at the cover and title and it's assured that women are going to love the book. The cover image has been designed very well with different facets of a woman depicted to perfection. The blurb gives ample hints that it's going to be a paradise for working women. An eye opener. It has been narrated by the author from her own vast pool of experience. The blurb is more than enough to go with the theme and the title of the book.
The story. It's not a story. It's about women, their experiences, life and their professional fronts and how to handle and manage it in adverse times. The author has gone great lengths in describing the entire ordeal with a fluid narration and an impeccable ease. The beauty of the book lies in the examples generated out of everyday life of a person. Each chapter is a pure bliss to read. It's not only for women. There are a few things for the opposite gender to read and get their facts updated. It's a book which will help change a lot of perceptions among women and men both.
There are no downsides in the book. Faults are hard to find in it.
It's a pleasure experience to go through a life of a working woman and relate it to real life. It's a book made for women who want to live and lead life queen size. It's accurate and right till the end there ain't a single minute a reader who won't enjoy the book to the core. The book is for the masses and all types of classes to enjoy. It's enough to motivate a woman to relive the best moments of her life to the fullest. It's not hard to understand. All the thoughts and points are within your grasp and creates a wave of excitement when a reader goes through it.
The book comes with a very good message with it:
It's all in your hands. You either grab the opportunity and carve out a beautiful future or forfeit and sit back and repent later at the loss.
5 OUT OF 5.
