Book Review

KEYS is a very exhorting novel clearly conveying its messages through its different chapters. The book has extensively discussed each of the three keys. The first KEY- Heal your past encompasses over eight chapters. The second KEY - Live your present is spread over ten chapters. And the third KEY- Plan your future is being described in nine chapters.

The novel has added special effect to its teaching by adding an introductory picture to every chapter. The picture introduces the chapter in a satirical manner with cartoons giving a message. Along with this, there is an opening verse in each chapter which adds to the teachings. One of my favourite verse is-
 I am unique, and I am the best
It doesn't matter, what people suggest
I know my place is in the upper crest
In my eyes, I am better than the best.

At the end of every chapter, there is a At a glance section where the author has jotted down the summary of the chapter in bullet points which is a quick revision of all the learning of the chapter.

The author has described each key with a long prose which I liked the most. This is a very striking feature of this book. Also the real life examples quoted in the book gives it a close-to-my life touch. Some examples inspire you, some examples urge you not to commit the same mistake, some examples are an exemplary of his teachings. This book is a complete package to turn around your life to your dream life.


In a Nutshell

This book is meant for all those who have closed their dreaming eyes while they grew up. Trust me by the end of this book you will be equipped with the three keys and you will find it very easy to pursue your dreams. Now you will be having that clear vision and path to walk on which is waiting for you to be tramped. You will look at this book as a life-changer if you read it religiously and follow some of the practices to bring about the change in your life which you have always yearned for. For me this book is the one which I will always turn up to whenever I stray from the correct path. It not only inspires you to listen to your heart but tells you the way to achieve your goal.
