PRAISES AND REVIEWS OF ATTITUDE SHIFT"In a world swarming with self-help literature, Attitude Shift breaks the convention of putting old wine in new bottles. Shashikant Joshi redefines Sanskrit maxims to examine contemporary lifestyle. A handbook for human resource executives and those eager to enrich their knowledge."
~ Hindustan Times, April 2, 2011
Practical. Pragmatic. Inspirational.
~ Sandipan Deb, Senior Journalist, Former Managing Editor, Outlook
"The book's greatest speciality is that it is not just a literary or intellectual 'crying-in-the-forest' (futile) exercise. The soul of the maxims have been expressed with such expertise, that one can clearly hear the heartbeat of modern contexts. There are marvelous, guiding principles, tips and directions hidden in these time-tested, simple, pithy sayings that they give new energy to life and management."
