Review:

Book Inside You is an excellent guide for aspiring writers. It contains a plethora of valuable tips, which are helpful and valuable in all fields. The author has divided the book into three parts, which makes everything go in a flow. The thing I liked the most about the book is the simple writing style with crisp suggestions. The author has explained the topics with great detailing, which will surely help out a newbie in writing. The appendix section is the most exciting part of the book, as it has diagrams, charts, case studies and strategies. The book is wholesome about writing and provides valuable guidance to people in the writing field. However, if the book had some exercises for writers, it could have been better. Overall, the book is a great help for aspiring writers and is undoubtedly an excellent
self-help writing guide.

Blurb: Yogesh, a meditation teacher, meets John, a writer, on a train journey. Yogesh decides to narrate a story to John about three friends. The story revolves around the lives of Krish, an entrepreneur, Tony, a school dropout and Asif, a carpet seller. Their lives were going good and settled until one day; they get a prediction about changes in their life. After that, they get stuck in a plane hijack, go to Tibet to meet a friend and end up putting their lives in danger. A Lot more incidents happen to change their outlook towards life, and lessons to be learnt. Each of them ends up in a different place, with various realisations. What were the incidents that affected them so badly? How did three carefree souls become urban monks? Review: The book's plot is an intriguing one, with a subplot on every main character's life. The life of an entrepreneur is well despited; the stress, their experience, and priorities are realistically captured. Through Asif and Tony's lives, the author shows the reality of how our choices, about which we don't think properly, can lead us to some thrills and, at times, devastating results. Each character has a great lesson to offer in the end. Also, the book is fast-paced, and the mystery indeed makes it a page-turner. The author has gone at length to detailing locations where the characters travel during the book's journey. One can certainly live the book while reading it. However, suppose a few selective incidents had been narrated in depth. In that case, the book could have been more engaging for the reader. Overall, the book is an excellent read.       Blurb: The book Hinduism talks about the 5000-year-old journey of Hinduism and its evolution. The book talks about the origin and base of Hinduism.
