Book Review: Yes Sir by Girish Aivalli

EtherealJinxed | Book Review | Yes Sir by Girish Aivalli

Yes Sir, have not we all said such to our bosses time and again, not because we agree, but because it is the right thing to do at that point in time to advance in one’s career? That is corporate life. And in this book, we get lots of gyaan (powerpoint style to-do/action-items in bullet points) without inclining towards being a self-help book (I hate those books).

The book is a humorous take on corporate life and office politics without being preachy, hey it is fiction after all. Though the character sketches are pretty generalized and Girish, the namesake and protagonist being the best of the lot, it is an all-enjoyable read and takes just 2 hours to complete. Perfect, right? Short and crisp – to the point. However, I will give it a few minus points for grammatical errors, but overall worth picking up for fun and gyaan, especially for MBA aspirants and MBA-goers.

What has this guy got

Urbane and polished
The girl is of high class

Flirting and teasing
Bringing down the guards

Oh my God!
What has this girl got

Toned and polished
The guy looks amazing

Secretly watching
The coming back age

Oh my God!
What have they got

Different offices of different make
Hanky panky in office across the desks

Distant since so long
Finally enjoying the moment they got
