With these guidelines, you can learn how to be more successful in everything you do--instead of wistfully envying others you think are just "luckier" than you. A little self-discipline goes a long way…so stop making excuses and read this book!

What is civilization if not a vast and interlinked network of human relationships? With 'The Business of People', Dr Raghu sets out to teach the reader how to make these relationships healthy and mutually beneficial. The book manages to do that with a lot of flair. It also abounds in anecdotes that will often put a smile on the reader's face as he/she simultaneously marvels at the extraordinary mind of the author. Dr. Raghu discusses certain characteristics that we all understand but fail to recognise their importance like punctuality, humility, politeness, rationality, prudence, self-supervision, persistence, apologising, assertiveness, taking the initiative, and sense of humour among others. The points discussed by Dr. Korrapati are in tune with the National Skill Development Board, an initiative of the Prime Minister to improve employable skills among Indian youth.
