Nope, this isnt Shakespeare. Its an Indian author and his commentaries on Project Management with the IT industry as the context.

Its a book in which a fictious manager "Bob" passes on pearls of wisdom on several subjects (project management, people management, strategy, self-management in terms of promotion, branding etc) to "Sam" to whom he has taken a sudden liking for reasons not clear till the very end of the book - actually the ending is so pathetic it made me weep -think the author got ti

Sam or Swaminathan is the protagonist working in an IT form for last 5 years and is going through a mid life crisis due to shoddy treatment by his bosses. He is suddenly assigned a international project in USA (mostly because nobody thought that the company got a chance to win it). On the way, Sam meets Bob a ...more

Liked it, to the core.
Each chapter relates to one of the competencies that one needs to have in a typical IT company.
Somehow each page and each topic just flows into the other. If you have been a part of a IT service comapny, you can definitely relate to many of the situations mentioned in the book. Bob, awesome charater, mends and twists the situation according to him and convinces the hero of the book that what they are doing is correct.
In one of the chapters there is a nice phrase that I like
