Start your review of Selfie of Success
Gautam Sasidharan
Success writes about itself, to give a "holistic view of itself, presenting a complete and different perspective"; this is how " Selfie of Success" can be put forth. The holistic view is presented in four parts. Starting off by explaining the settings, success continues to give a different perspective by giving a syllabus, summary, side effects and signature. Each of these parts are given a brief overview, followed by stories or write ups of personalities who exemplify the facts covered in the p ...more

I have read many books on success and stories that inspire. This book was different in multi-contextual approach. It gave me a kind of holistic view of ways in which different people achieve success.

I would say it is a good read, considering the Indian context and successful people from various eras and walks of life.

The book is a good amalgamation of different stories and inspiring people.

The only drawback is the different sets of illustration. It gets the eyes a bit sore.

Still, it is a good

**It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.** ___J.K. Rowling ___Selfie of Success



Book Review: The book is about the hottest topic of all times. The ubiquitous topic everybody loves to talk about. It talks about SUCCESS. The topic is not new and not something not discussed before. A plethora of books talk about it. But this book sees it with an entirely different pers

Have you ever thought of our feelings and emotions as a separate entity? It is strange thinking that, right? But after reading ‘Selfie of Success’ I don’t think so. It is a book from the perspective of success. It includes every element of success; its sources, sins, side effects, shocks, stages and everything that is needed to understand success.

Right from the cover and title, the book is classy. The language of the book is easy to understand. The writing style of the author is simple and impre

The title of the book is self explanatory and purpose of reading it being someone who is preparing for upsc is also understandable. Let's start with saying that the narrator of the book isnt the author it's the "Success " itself! Personification of an abstract thing. While describing himself it says, "I am nothing but the attainment of things and experiences you yearn for" and then it asks for us to do our part of job in order to achieve it....The basic flow of the book can be divided as such li ...more

Ingenious.
A fresh book sounds funny right but it is truly a piece of creative work by the author. It widens your perspective and gives you profound insights into what success is and what can be its context in a person's life.
The style of writing in the book is pleasant, you will find yourself enjoying the book and the little stories with significant meaning and to top it off there are a lot of sketches and various drawings aligned with the chapters which make it a great read.
The book takes us o

Selfie of Success!

A book written by Burra Venkatesham which beautifully explains every concept related to success. Right from what success is all about, stepping stone towards success, how to be optimistic and never give up, what it means to be successful and so on.

The author has quoted real life success stories of so many people right from Jack Ma, John Cena & J.K.Rowling. The Author has rightly explained how these people accepted failures, at the same time they even had a desire to work hard,

IAS Burra Venkatesham has jotted down a good piece of writing as the name is also much fascinating. The book concept is quite good, somewhere I felt the narration is not flowing streamline while the stories are inspiring one.
It includes beautiful stories of great personalities like Oprah Winfrey, Einstein, J.K Rowling, Jeff Bezos, Mary Com, etc. and a list of long stories about them, which were of course very fascinating.
Selfie to Success talks about what is success most importantly the persiste

"Success is more of context in which the successful person is in."

A book about success and author has decided to write this book in success's point of view.

It's a collection of people's life who success have met. Some stayed, while some got lost and there are free who became a piece of success.


This book will take you through the vales of the glory and the regret that success carry with it.

You may feel you know this already but this book is here to remind you.

Selfie of success by Burra Venkatesham is an exceptional book about success . You may have read many self help books but this one is totally different . The author has defined success in a unique way and told about its merits and demirits . The best thing about this book is that success is personified and it talks to you .
A must read.
