Sriram V Iyer from Madras, TN, India writes...

This is one book I couldn't just stop reading. Its so addictive that the reader eyes gets glued to it. Its all about Life in a B-school and more, the life that Abbey, the protagonist goes through in his two years at MIJ (a B-school of repute) at Jamshedpur or "Jampot" as referred to in the book! - and Abbey's life before that as a student of Delhi University. The well-etched characters stay in your mind so fresh. The magical world in the book that draws you into it is almost like the aura that exists in RK Narayan's Malgudi and its characters. I liked Malgudi and its characters, but I adore Jampot, MIJ and Abbey's world that revolves around it. What are you waiting for? Haven't you got a copy yet? Go get it, before it gets sold out !! Here are a few illustrations which sparkle in the book.
1. Ayesha's eyes - Abbey's classmate at MIJ
2. Abbey's classnotes on Organizational Behaviour (Orgy B)
3. Abbey's classnotes on Strategic Planning (Pari's class)

I am visiting Chennai on vacation. I was in the hip bookstore "Odyssey". I saw your book displayed prominently among the Indian authors section. I was tempted to buy , but not yet. I just read the preface and saw your blog URL. I was looking for a validation of my assumption about the book before I cspend the time to read it. Did you mean the title and the book as the critique on "how we settle for mediocracy, do not expect anything more than mediocracy from others and despite that we are full of ourselves"?
