“ Masterpiece – Sharp, Authentic & Practical Wisdom Dives into the subject pretty comprehensively.
Loved the structuring / flow of the chapters, starts by narrating the overall macroeconomic landscape, the inner travails one may go through, with practical tips around maintaining mental well being ( first and foremost) and how to look at this situation as an opportunity to rebuild yourself. Absolutely cherished the chapters on Vulnerability and ‘Squeeze the lemons’. Well done Shreya ! You’ve done it.. Look forward to the next ones..” Amazon International Review
