I love the way incidents and experiences are shared. Reading this book made me unlearn and relearn ABCD of my life. While reading I can relate the book with everything happening in the world - covid, lockdown, meltdown.
It is very relevant in the current times and going forward.

Most of us know 'how to make a living' but only a few know 'how to live'...and
live a wholesome life. The profundity of this subject has been narrated through an interesting conversation between two extraordinary characters.
'New York to NEW YOU' is a playbook that has the potential to transform you and unleash your fullest potential, if you imbibe the key messages.
