Recommends it for: People who are fond of reading self-help books and articles
In the initial phase of reading this book, i was rating it a 2-star. Reason being that i found it bit repetitive in its messages. Repetitive as in, it seemed to consist of the usual stuff that most self-help books intend to teach their readers. Also, i was finding its vocabulary little too tough to understand without a dictionary. So much so that i had even shut the book and kept it aside with the thought 'some other time..'
But when after some time, i started reading it again afresh, by the time

Quotable Quotes: "Bheega Hua Aadmi Baarish Se Nahin Darta"
"Comparison Begets Regrets"
"It is not enough to succeed; others must fail"
"Most of us are driven by sadistic instincts"


Anupam Kher's new book teaches valuable life lessons. It tells nothing new than the things that we already know but are not ready to either understand or acknowledge. The books is divided into multiple chapters; each dealing with a small facet of life.

Kher does not try to be preachy but he rather breaks down the more imp

Book Review India Verdict:

Review: "Anything could happen"

Bracketed in 50 chapters, it's an amalgamation of the noteworthy incidents of the actor's life and traditional Indian and foreign stories.
The initial chapters are an attempt to make the readers understand the root of the problem. Topics such as 'We Are All Unhappy', 'The Anger Syndrome', 'Discontent Is a Disease', and 'Comparison Begets Regret' present the examples from all over the world to make the case stronger that no human can live

Had heard a lot about this book but disaapointed at last. I guess ,uch hype has been given to anupams book because he is a movie star. Didnt like his writing style. Agree that he has accumulated a lot of experience over the years being through ups and downs however good writing skills seems still a far cry. The only few good things i found was some great quotes from famous people he used. Otherwise nothing new or refreshing in the book that i found.

Excellent book and must read. There is nothing new that is been told in this book other than what has been told in Dale Carnegie or Shiv Khera.. the way it has been written with humbleness adds charm to it. It doesn't promise of any miraculous change in you, but makes you prepare for the journey of life and the need of accepting changes in life with grace and patience :)

I have been following Mr. Anupam Kher on Twitter since a year and he had tweeted a lot about this book of his as well as his play, Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai. I could not see the play so thought lets pick up the book and see what he has to say. I have immense respect for Mr. Kher as an actor but after reading this book the respect has gone up notches as it reflects his growth as a person who is understanding life.

The book has 50 nuggets which have been shared in a very simple and a non preachy manner

At first it seems like a run-of-the-mill self help books, but as you read along it seems to find a connect. The various examples and personal experiences shared by Mr. Kher makes it easy to reflect upon each of the words and understand the deeper meaning. One book that one needs to keep on the bedside table to refer every time one feels sad or unhappy. It promises to make you see things in brighter light and feel happy about your situation, your accomplishments , your failures and more than ...more

It's great. Nothing new but it's great.
Well written,analyzed the human life by an experienced man.
To be frank I got starting blues before starting to read. But, the way he touched every chord that needs to be touched in a self-help book is amazing.

Indian authors always good in choosing the examples while explaining something. Anupam proved it again.

Quick page Turner and simple vocabulary.

"Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai" - Mr.Kher's superb performance play. If you've seen it you better be impressed with the man's attitude to life. When he released this book I bought it and was hoping to read some of his life lessons. Sadly not very impressive. He attempts a Robin Sharma style writing but I really couldn't capture the power. Hopefully others have been impressed.

This is definitely an interesting and quick read. Though lots of stuff we know, at times I wonder why we don't care the things that we are aware of. Lots of anecdotes/incidents and stories from all over the world. I enjoyed reading the story "The Happy man wears no shirt", though most of us know this story.

I won't categorize it as a self help book. It does not talk about the wonderland and the life in there. It talks about reality...it talks about today...it talks about success, failures, relationships, hope... binded with some beautiful quotes. There isn't anything you don't know...but sometimes u need to listen it from someone else....I very much liked this book! short and effective!

I find it difficult to read through self-help books unless they are written creatively. Most thoughts expressed in this book are so well known that another round of reiteration is burdensome. But the good part is that the book appears completely honest and uses simple language.

Never thought he could write this that good

has talked a lot about how to lead or life

do not agree with all

its more kind of a book one should read on a regular basis to remind one about the principles

I can't say I learned something that I didn't already know. However, I appreciate the honesty by which Anupum Kher describes his ups and downs in life. It can't be easy and I don't think you can chalk it all up to entrepreneurship.

The book was in general ok. he talks about lessons he learned from his life with some great quotation and stories. As a reader for lots of self development and positive thinking books I found nothing new.

Anupam Kher opens up fifty inspirational pieces of personal experiences and examples for self-discovery. The book guides us to see things positively and discover happiness in ourselves. His writing is simple, easy to follow and has a touch of charm.
