Manoj Arora
A simple and motivating narration from Arindam on how to manage people and organisations well..

My GoodReads rating 3/5

My learning:
(1) If there is anything worthwhile to be done, then it must be done with passion.
(2) A boss and an employee put together knows more than the boss. Learn to listen to your team
(3) Be not afraid of growing slowly, be only afraid of standing still
(4) People are an organisation's only sustainable competitive advantage.
(5) Things do not turn up in this world, until someo

Although the initial chapters were good & inspiring, but successively the author fills the chapters with some high-level management strategies which may not be of interest to the normal reader (including me).

Oh My God ! The first ever management book which I started, managed
and completed reading. Thanks it had only 200 pages. I claim it as my
first non-story book If the below one is not counted.

Previously I tried to complete Made in Japan by Akio Morita But I
couldn't complete reading the book. I crossed 160 pages two times and
still it is in my reading list. I have lent this book to my colleague.
He too expressed his discomfort in reading such kind of books.

CYCBTH start with examples of some inspirational lives - picked from here and there. The feel-good part is not worth the salt but the subsequent works are incredible.
It is a fast read, yet it visits several important subject; keeping language light-handed and at times humorous.
The sections on management bring the old school principles like communication and motivation but within entirely new approaches. I particularly liked the LAW of communication; the Saam- Daam- Dand- Bhed theory of managemen

It started of quite well but by the end of the book things were not looking so good.
Simple and simplistic views. No new insights. Found a bit repetitive too.

It is a good book and even better if one implements the lessons taught by arindam.

this book is a complete waste.....this is not upto the hype it has....the first chapter is inspiring then from there onwards there is nothing in this book....i think arindham chudari wrote all those reviews saying"best mangement book ever""blah blah" or he might have paid to write those the full page iipm ads this book is full of bullshit.if you dare to think beyond CYCBT, then i donno where you gonna end up.....

Interesting only in the beginning. However, 12 years back this book would have been very very interesting.... though some basic management principles and concepts remain the same.

Perhaps there are some gud example of how we can recover from the current dollar crisis if this 'I' principle could be really used to our best advantage.

Really fascinating and introduces
i-theory to readers which talks about Indian style of management...
