It is something to talk about Gandhi, write about Gandhi and it is completely a different thing to analyze and understand Gandhi. They say you need to read all the 99 volumes written on Gandhi to judge him but Virender Kapoor reflects his understanding in 121 pages.
Unlike other non-fiction, this short-yet-intriguing nook has something more to offer. Apt to the title, ‘Leadership – The Gandhi Way‘, Virender Kapoor examines the iconic personality and derives leadership lessons from his life; explain how readers can successfully employ these things in their own lives.
‘I regard myself as a soldier, though a soldier of peace’
– M.K. Gandhi
Inculcating the thoughts of distinguished personalities, Kapoor draws a larger than life picture of Gandhi. Indeed in a thought-provoking process, the author shows that Gandhi understood the power of emotional appeal, and used sincerity rather than empty rhetoric to maximize the effect of whatever he said.
‘Lead from the back…and let others believe they are in front’
– Nelson Mandela
Inspirational, intriguing, impeccable, the non-fiction is not all that tough to read and is sure to make a difference to the reader. However, the reader could have written a little more how the reader should connect to the book and also certain unnecessary elements could have been over looked. Also, the story lacks flow and the reader is quite slapped with facts and points.
All in all, the book is a celebration of Gandhi’s thoughts. Virender Kapoor ia a thinker, educationist and chief mentor of Management Institute for Leadership and Excellence (MILE), Pune. His books on emotional intelligence, leadership and self-help have been translated into a number of foreign languages.
