 A letter to the Author from shri Balaji, dated 15 Jan 2012:

Respected sir,

I am Balaji SP, fifth year dual degree student from IIT Madras.
Recently I found your book in Tata Book house in our college and bought it.
Reading it was really life transforming. It made a huge difference in
me, especially in my attitude more than my posture.
I really thank you for the wonderful philanthropic work you are doing.

I would like to know if the book is still in print so that I can
suggest it to my friends and relatives.

yours sincerely,
Balaji SP.
