As an entrepreneur and former corporate executive, I was cracking up at every step. I could see, VERY vividly, situations and conversations that I’ve been a part of at some point or the other, over the past two decades. The writing just flows – rich with clever analogies and a lightness of tone, albeit ripe with sarcasm! Superb!
