My review:

‘Life’ and ‘Philosophy’ usually complement each other but only if merged in apt quantities and at right time. No, there is no perfect recipe but every person have their individual take on the concept.

This book is how Amisha – the author got introduced and attracted to the philosophies of life. Generally speaking, it is believed that we get indications and signals from the cosmic powers which guide our lives. Sadly most of us, do not ever catch hold of such opportunes and miss the train only to regret our actions and decisions, later on. Through this book, she attempts to join the dots and helps us decipher the hidden hints scattered all around us.

She shares her experiences, sorrows and joys alike and through the passage enlightens us with kind words of wisdom in a very simple and easily understandable language. She never uses high end and confusing terminologies and analogies rather she prefers to choose light-hearted memories collected down the line.

One trait that she highlights in her book is – kindness. She guides you to imbibe the theory of ‘let go’; one that I am fighting for, till date.

This is a fast and pacey read that you will finish off in just one sitting. You will feel fresh and light as if some heavy weight has been lifted off your shoulders. Next time, you plan to buy a quick read or a companion in your trip, you know…what to hunt for.

I missed adding that the book cover is nice, attractive and an enticing one. A work that promises to be a refreshing read.

About the book:

Kiara is a dynamic, thirty-something girl who has reached great heights professionally, and is the apple of the eye for almost everyone who knows her. But she never took any short cuts to become happier, wiser, healthier and compassionate.

She had to find rays of hope where the dark tinnel seemed unending, and identify shade in life’s burning path. She found little pearls of wisdom in chasing her dreams, in spreading laughter, in learning from scriptures and philosophers, and even at one point in almost ending her life.

More than Kiara’s story and the wisdom she achieves through the various dramatic and hilarious experiences, this book is a motion picture with you in the lead role. You as the ‘hero’ who can beat the most stubborn of villians – most of which lie deep within us…our fear, unkindness, selfish interests, negative thoughts and jealousy. You as the ‘heroine” who is sharp and witty in talking, selfless and caring in love, and charming and beautiful inside out, like none other (perhaps a 2.0 version of you).

Walk with Kiara to find a better you, because It Doesn’t Hurt to be Nice.
