‘Utkarsh Rai has penned a particularly relevant book on personnel management which I would strongly recommend to every organization to use as a reference manual as they evolve new ways to manage talent and build organizational excellence.’—Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw, CMD, Biocon 

‘A useful compilation of everyday situations we all go through in the work environment. . . The book consistently provides balanced perspectives/viewpoints of both sides.

‘[The book] beautifully captures the diverse myths prevalent at the office. Each myth is described in detail, along with the underlying reasons. . . This book is beneficial to both employees and managers. Together, they can bring positive changes to any organization.’—Nandan Nilekani
