What next? You are just in your final year or just a fresh graduate.. all that you look for is that little hope of a job..your 1st job. So what do you do? Hunt, find, apply, jugaad, and best is pray! Of course you know the dos and don’ts but what you don’t know is what has to be rightly done and what is a complete no no. So this tiny little book by Uttam Kumar is nothing but an IMP guide. I-In M-My P- Pocket guide of all one should know about the new journey of social security and financial liberty.
Since this is just the beginning of your new innings in life you will definitely need a daddy lesson before you step your foot in the rat race and the leech hunt. This book serves just the thirst to all the what? why? and when? question.
The author has listed down 10 possible and very common inadvertence that anyone can do in their 1st job. As a reader it seemed more like a practical guide which is articulated in a way that helps one note and jot the silly yet important what not to dos. This isn’t a story hence there isn’t an opportunity to decide a pace, but surprisingly there is a plot not in literal sense but in the sense that the 10 mentioned mistakes are threaded to one root. Though one will learn all these lessons gradually in life some after the 1st job some after second and some never but why take a chance to chase away the 1st opportunity.
The book seems like a walk through from the first person experience and this goes to show that the Author has been through and wants us not be through.
What I liked about this?
This book is a quick read and acts as a simple know how guide. The authors language and choice of words are appreciable, it’s easy to communicate and kind of instructional. There were jargons used yet seemed passive wen placed in sentences which is quite a commendable tactics adopted for a debutant.
What could have been better?
Since the book has a different purpose the content is not to be questioned but what I would really appreciate if the author could have played around with a theme to the book. Perhaps a plot in literal sense now. There seemed a need to keep this book compact so it kind of gave an impression that the content was too less.
All in all: This book is a pre-1st job dad lessons for a journey new and unknown. A heads-up to what one shouldn’t do and what one ought to do. Although the title demanded more, the Author rightly tried to justify his content.
Over all rating: 3.1/5
