Mukta Mahajani

(Jaico Publishing House, Rs. 295)

Several schools and corporations abroad invest time and money in honing negotiation and communication skills in students and employees, to prepare them for the business world. This helps a fresh graduate-turned-executive to cope with difficult people and situations and better appreciate the culture and colleagues they work with.

It is something that will play a vital role in India too. And that’s what Mahajani attempts to do in his book. The author offers methods of how to help people cope and arm themselves for a firm and successful transition from college to work place.Compiled by SAVITHA GAUTAM
