The language of the book is easy and this makes it easy to connect. The author talks about simple things in a logical way, making the book an interesting read. Consider some simple yet deep one liners written in the book.

There is a chance that while doing good work you may be confronted by moral conflicts. You may start questioning the concept of ‘good’ and ‘bad’. (Page- 83)

We all go through this dilemma. Whoever has started any business or something new, will agree with this line.
