Let me start off by saying that I do not like reading self help books. It might seem like a negative start to review of a self help book but I had to mention this fact in order for you to understand that the impact that this book had on me was beyond usual.
The author is an MBA in Economics Graduate and had a successful career as corporate leader and then as an entrepreneur. Finding your G-Spot in life is her debut book. Writing of the book is very easy and comfortable to read to the point that you feel like you are having a real heart to heart conversation with a dear friend. I was beyond surprised by the honest and brutal account which reflected and scrutinised her life.
As she attempts to stay away from conventional approaches of motivation and “heard it all” quotes, she connects to the reader in a very personal way. Once you pick up this book, it is a very compelling page turner. It is impossible to keep it down till you have finished it.
Most striking thing is the fact that the author talks about her failures and insecurities and is still somehow able to draw a silver lining. She is, in her own words, unapologetically and unflinchingly honest and owns up to her choices. She also discusses subjects like passion, self-worth, fear etc with amazing wit and humour which never leaves the reader bored while still leaving them with thoughtful answers to such topics.
This book is a treasure trove of amazing quotes. I always like to write down my favourite quotes while I am reading any book. But I abandoned writing them down and started just tabing them with my sticky notes after reading 20 pages because there were so many. There was no way I could have finished reading it if I continued writing down literally every sentence that resonated with me.
This book made me take a step back and think about the bigger picture. It made me ask some very important questions via the small ‘Do it for Yourself’ exercises included after each chapter. Doing these exercises was my favourite part and made me feel like I was interacting with the book itself. This helped to put up a real mirror removing any dirt of insecurities, failures and preconceived notions.
Why would I recommend this book over other self help books? Because it will give you realistic solutions for some very real problems and not expect your to give up everything and go live in mountains. It’s real, relatable, honest and unbiased. Can’t wait to read more of her writing.
