The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens will engage teenagers unlike any other book.


The stories teach you so much about life itself. They also tell you so much about qualities we seem to have forgotten - like honesty - and also people that were great, not for the money they had, but the strength of character they had - like JRD Tata. They also tell you what ingratitude is.
I found them to be wholesome and I found myself stronger in my beliefs having read this book.

                             Shiva Trilogy
Amish Tripathi

Amish Tripathi’s trilogy on Lord Shiva consists of three books, which have been released gradually over the past three years: ‘The Immortals of Meluha’, ‘The Secret of the Nagas’, and the finale, ‘The Oath of the Vayuputras’. This mythological – historical – adventure – fiction series covers story around one of the most revered gods in Hindu mythology - Lord Shiva, who is portrayed as a simple human being – and who, by the end of the series becomes a friend to the readers because they can identify with his humanity. Evil is not a person, it is an idea or belief. This is something Shiva has to learn on his journey through the three books.The language of the books is modern, everyday and very simple English, which makes it easy for any reader to relate to.
 Not to be missed at any cost. Recommended read.
Happy Reading!
