Excerpt from Book:
In April 2006 Robin ‘Einstein’ Varghese, a stupendously naive but academically gifted young man (he was ranked 41st in his class), graduates from one of India’s best business schools with a Day-Zero job at the Mumbai office of Dufresne Partners, a mediocre mid-market management consulting firm largely run by complete morons. Varghese finds that he fits into the culture remarkably well. Or does he?
Through a stunning series of blunders, mishaps and inadvertent errors, Robin begins to make his superiors rue the day they were driven by desperation into hiring him. With things going spectacularly wrong in his professional and personal life, will Robin manage to achieve his short-term goal of being promoted to Associate in under a year? Will love conquer all and will Gouri walk with him through Dadar Department Stores with her hand in the rear pocket of his jeans?
One of my friends gave me this book and he appreciated a lot. I have checked other blogger’s review and also seen reviews on Goodreads. Most of them are appraising author’s work and are talking about fun & humor in the book. Yah that’s true, there are humors but after some pages, those are repetitive. Protagonist is self obsessed, doesn’t respect any girl (whenever sees any girl in office, he thinks of female autonomy and sex), always thinks that others are getting promotion only because of luck or ass-licking. Up to some pages, you will enjoy it but slowly I started feeling boring. This book is more suitable to YA or college pass-out who wants to look into beyond cubical environment.
