Often, we assume that our communication has been effective and understood by the receiver; but in reality, it may have the contrary effect. This ‘communication recipe book’ can help young readers to develop their communication skills. With gripping examples from real life and scrumptious ‘food for thought’, the author has touched upon all the essential ingredients necessary to communicate effectively. The book written lucidly will keep the reader glued and complete the ten Sunday brunches in one sitting! A must read for all those in the field of communication and advertising.

“Communication works for those who work at it,” said John Powell. Communication is a skill which can make or break careers of people. Even managing our routine day to day activities requires effective communication. Vivek Hattangadi’s book will be an excellent guide to all who want to succeed in professional life. The author does a great job of explaining communication tactics in an easy and enjoyable way. The analogies are written in a playful and ‘easily digestible’ manner. This book is a useful resource for all. Learning has been made fun!

Vivek Hattangadi presents the book in a unique style. The chapters are in the form of weekly Sunday Brunches. The offerings in these brunches can be useful not only for success in one’s profession, but also in one’s personal life. The Digestive Aid after every Sunday Brunch is worthy of note. The real life episodes can help readers learn from Vivek Hattangadi’s experiences. Maanasi Hattangadi’s illustrations add special flair and flavor to the book. This book is an ideal guide for every sales person who desires to grow. Dr. Ulhas Ganu Pharma Consultant, Mumbai
