The Best Thing About You Is YOU!

Author: Anupam Kher

Publisher: Hay House India

Price: Rs. 399

Anupam Kher’s versatility extends to things other than acting. He indulges in theatre, TV, runs an acting academy and has even worn the director’s hat.

Now, Kher turns author with this book that aims to guide you through life with tips that Kher has picked up from his own experiences. The book shares insightful advises to guide people on the path to self-realisation.

The idea behind the book is to inculcate positive thinking in daily life. Chapters such as ‘We Are All Unhappy’ present examples from the world which help in drawing a generalisation, while ‘Don’t Fear Change’ helps readers contemplate on how change can be used as a source of energy.

The book scores in the frankness with which it is written, but lacks originality as almost everything written has already been published in other self-help books. Excerpts from Kher’s play ‘Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai’ are repetitive. The author has transcribed his thinking in simple words, but the text lacks day-to-day examples. Overall though, a disillusioned soul can seek inspiration from this book.
