In these most difficult of economic times, where the world economy is seeing its worst nightmares come true, here is a book that offers solace to the afflicted. While everyone else seems to be suggesting what ‘they’ should have done or should be doing, here is a book that tells us how ‘we’ should be facing the situation in our own personal lives. Taking recession as the backdrop, the book takes us, the readers, through a fascinating journey into our own lives to that secret destination where the true treasure lies. In this way, the book lives up to its name “Recession – Adversity or Opportunity?”. The lucid presentation organized as a three-point lifestyle management formula gradually, but purposefully, leads on the readers to the final message. While the moving stories and the wonderful quotes keep the reader riveted, the eye-opening analyses and striking contemporary examples keep the discussion very relevant. A beautiful read for especially those afflicted by the current global economic recession, and also for everyone in general who would like to know how certain basic lifestyle principles can go a long way in helping one lead a peaceful and fulfilling life.
