Although there are lots of books published in this genre every year around the world, this one is no run-of-the-mill creation. The book “Be Your Own Pilot” is a marvel among the self improvement books that have been published lately. Written by a veteran pilot of the Indian Air force, the book is a single point of reference a person would ever need as the source of the ultimate mantra for success in all walks of life.


Manish uses the analogy of flying to depict the various difficulties one faces in life and also shows the ways to overcome those difficulties. He has used his own personal experience during his days at the flying school to narrate a completely mesmerising story. If you ever had any interest in flying an aircraft yourself, you are sure to love the book. The book though very concise delivers the message it wants to deliver with absolute clarity in a simple to understand language.


I would recommend this book to all who ever wondered what the secret mantra for success in life is. Well, even at the risk of revealing the secret formula, I would like to give you a glimpse of the it. Manish calls it IVR. Although the secret is revealed in almost the middle of the book, the path treaded to reach the secret is equally enriching.


Well, now you see, how could I keep my readers from getting to know about a life changing opportunity? I had to do it… finally after trying my hand at it many times before, I have finished the review of one of the most amazing books I have ever had the opportunity to lay my hands on. Now, you bet I would recommend reading the book and keeping it in your personal library for easy access for whenever require to refer it.
