Work Sucks! Or Do You?

First Edition

‘New to work? Cut the angst and move on’

Can't figure out why your workplace is complex and unfair? Washroom crying sessions and cafeteria rants not helping? They usually don't. But this book might. It asks you to use common sense—and some uncommon, hard-earned wisdom—to navigate the emotional minefield that office can often be in your early years. And it advises you to find your answers in your own beliefs and build a career, not just keep a job.

‘Anshul shares his unique take on navigating the daily kurukshetras. Anshul has bone-deep honesty in his writing [and is] absolutely unapologetic about his approach; he honestly shares the minutest of his observations and weaves in life philosophy.’

‘It is a compelling read for those not just planning to enter their working lives but equally for those entrenched at work: many of whom feel a certain heartbreak at their own seeming inadequacies.’
