Review of “Discover the Diamond in You” by Arindam Chaudhuri

Posted by Saipradeep on January 23, 2010

This book review was written by my wife Sudha, her first venture in the world of review writting… “All the best wifey”!!!

The Review:

We have heard of the “2120” concept… At 2110 F, water is still said to be boiling water, however at 2120 F it converts into steam and has enough power to run even big ships. Just that one degree increase has given water that potential and power.

Is this not what happens to most of us? Some of us do so much of hard work but are rarely recognized. But there a few who do very little but are tagged with all praises.  These are the Smart workers of the world as we hard workers have to learn to become the Smart workers!!! Let me stay clear, I am not saying that smart workers are not hardworkers but just that they have learnt the art of ensuring that their work gets noticed.

There are so many times that we have run so much in life to get something but drop the effort unable to bear the grind. The heat and pain gets on to us forcing us off track and off the battle field.  The winners in life are not people who are dreamt long, but the ones who were able to hold onto that dream long enough. The winners are people who had it in them to walk that one extra mile to achieve their goals.  Winners are the ones who moved from 211 to 212. This is the secret that “Arindam Chaudhuri” writes in his book “Discover the Diamond in You”.

Professor Arindam Chaudhuri is an economist & management guru and also is an eminent author, an authoritative speaker & a transformational leader. He has been conferred upon with ‘Management Guru 2000’ award, ‘Personality of the Decade’ award, ‘Example to Youth’ award & many more…. He is also the Dean of IIPM

 What is that in this book that has made me write my first review? Well…this book says things in simple ways that any one who reads it can relate and implement. That is the strength of this book

I was never a fan of Management books and was very reluctant to start off with this book. But somehow I got riveted to this book, probably because you can finish it in less than an hour. Arindam says that you can finish in 59 minutes flat but in fact it takes less than that.

Getting on to contents part of the book, Arindam talks about 9Ps, from Passion to Patriotism. Loads of references of successful people are given. Just to state one, Sachin Tendulkar is the heart throb and inspiration for many many people. But there are as many criticizers as well. They just say that Sachin got lucky. Arindam in this books questions those critisisers as whether they knew Sachin, at the age of 13 used to practice cricket for 5 hours every morning. He asks them as to how many people they know who wake up that early and practice their passion at that yound age. Only winners have that in them. Sachin had the dream and he followed the 9Ps. It is an automatic formula to success. Such examples with known personalities adds flavor to this book. Just identify your dreams and merge them with the 9Ps…This will be in your blood stream and you will see Success Knocking your door.

Overall it was a pleasure to read this book as it started of a lot of serious thinking process. I would recommend this book to anyone who want to introspect themselves and want to learn the path to success…

    “We frequently discuss the Indian situation,” says Arindam, who chose to stay back in India and build his future here. (In the preface, he thanks wife Rajita for marrying him and staying back in India, instead of pursuing a green card holder!)

    Dear Rituraj

    Thank you for contacting me.

    Yes I would definitely love to review your book. I am in the process of writing a few reviews for the 3 books I read last week. So I would hold onto the review of your book until the wave for my present review subsides and then add on. That way, I will be able to do this as a special review.

    I will definitely get in touch with you once I read your book for an author interview. It would be great to speak to you too…
