Excellence: The Amitabh Bachchan Way by Virender Kapoor | Book Review


Summary:

What can Amitabh Bachchan’s life teach us in our pursuit of excellence? Everything.
Amitabh Bachchan is not just a brilliant actor or the ‘Superstar of the Millennium’. He is an institution in himself—not just for acting but everything that makes a person successful in his life. Most of his virtues—like professionalism, determination, a never-say-die attitude—are traits which one can follow to achieve the ‘Excellence’ everyone aspires for.
Four National Film Awards, 15 Filmfare Awards and 41 nominations hold testimony to his excellence. How does he sail through different phases of life—the good, the bad and the ugly, which in his case are the best, the worst and the horrid—unruffled? How did he manage an unpredictable film career along with a failed business venture and then rose like a phoenix, never to look back again? All this requires unwavering determination, willpower, patience and a disposition to take it all in one’s stride. In this book, educationist and inspirational guru Virender Kapoor analyses each and every trait of Bachchan that is immensely inspiring. Excellence: The Amitabh Bachchan Way not only reveals Big B’s professional ‘secrets’, it also teaches one how to make the best of what we have!

This book is very interesting and inspiring. The book though has not covered every aspect of Mr Bachchan's life in a very detailed manner but has very nicely covered all the important chapters of his life succinctly without stretching it too much and keeps the interest of the reader alive throughout. This is a short yet profound book. It takes just an hour to read cover to cover and gives practical advice on how to do something that we all know we should do.

The book is aptly written & the writers don't doesn't it at all. It is divided into nine enlightening and easy-to-follow chapters. The book is free of errors and language is superior, for which I must complement the author.
 I would look definitely forward to read more from the author.
