From the Back Cover
Have you ever seriously wondered why our planet is oozing and dripping with diseases, terrorism, racism, wars, crime, politics, business headaches, and 1001 other problems? Or why famous businesses suddenly take a nosedive from riches to rags? And are you baffled by the unexplained collective silence of the benevolent Gods from all our rival religions? If it is a big YES, then don't waste time seeking answers from any reputed experts, enlightened professors, top economists, or by reading their superb bestsellers. And also avoid those eminent Nobel laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, top economists, eloquent politicians or any influential world leaders, in case you accidentally bump into them. They will only make your doubts worse with their spellbinding theories. However, if you are desperate to clear your nagging doubts then you should ask the Cosmic Machiavelli because,

1. He is the only brilliant person in the entire universe who knows the correct reasons for the chaos and problems on earth, and also why our world’s movers and shakers can do nothing about it.

2. He is the dream teacher you were eagerly waiting for since childhood who can effortlessly explain why that dullest kid in your kindergarten is now a successful millionaire, while that smartest kid is now in prison.

3. He has also scribbled a few books, none of which have won any popular literary awards. And without even a website, blog or an email id, he has more fans, friends and followers than every blogger on the entire World Wide Web.

4. He is the only guy who can enlighten you with the technical, political, and business justifications for the eternal dance of feast-famine, merry-mayhem, good-bad, peace-chaos, wealth-poverty, etc., around us.

5. Finally, without even a formal authority he can bring anyone down to their knees, regardless of geographical boundaries, political clout, diplomatic immunity or muscle power.

Want to know who that marvelous person is? Just flip the pages.

Top Secret Business Humor
The Immaculate Worthless Collection
Author - Thejendra B.S

Book Details
The modern workplace environment has always been a source of comedy from decades, but very few people are willing to openly admit it. Many executives think humor and laughter are unproductive, unprofessional, and being serious and gloomy is the only way to spend their work life. This is why most modern workplaces have become extremely humorless, artificial and stressful. But we don't have to be humorless to run a business. Actually, the ability to laugh at yourself and your work are the qualities of great and successful leaders. Having a sense of humor can lighten up difficult situations and creatively solve many personal and business problems. You must be able to think in atrocious, ridiculous, and illogical terms. Modern management consultants call this 'thinking out of the box', but I call it old fashioned creativity and humor that has existed from centuries.

Top Secret Business Humor is a collection of witty satire related to corporate stuff like processes, performance, change, strategy, customer satisfaction, meetings, quality, and other workplace dramas we endure for several hours a day. This book is all about imagining the creative and wackier side of working in an office to rejuvenate and brighten your day. The chapters are all fictitious and can be taken with a pinch of salt, though the paper used may not be edible. The author makes no representations or warranties of any kind with respect to the accuracy, usability or usefulness of the contents. So get serious about injecting some humor in your life.

 The Caveman Diaries
Some Raw Advice for Modern Executives
Author - Thejendra B.S

Book Details
The Caveman Diaries is a bunch of raw advice on management, leadership and self improvement for the modern business executive. Ancient humans survived by eating food and fruits in their raw, natural state. But the modern human has become largely dependent on processed, packaged and highly contaminated food. Similarly, the modern business executive today has limited access to natural unadulterated advice, and has become accustomed to canned management fodder. This lack of clean advice is leading to constant stress, unrealistic demands, impractical expectations, etc., on modern executives. This, in turn, is leading to rapid burnout and various personal problems.

If you think you are also caught up in such a rat race then this book hopes to change your thought diet through multiple usable ideas and concepts. Essentially, there are two ways to lead one's life. The first way is you can either slog through life, waste time, energy, and make endless mistakes trying to discover things from your own experience. And the second way is you can profit from the knowledge and wisdom gained and documented by others. This book shows how you can benefit from the second way. Like a banquet containing an array of delicious healthy fruits this book contains a bunch of diverse chapters that can change the way you look at yourself and the world around you. Though there is no promise of revolutionary magic here, you will definitely see improved results if you use the advice within to guide your future actions in the workplace. Give it a try. You will be pleasantly surprised.

 The Long Fuse
Why The Buddha Never Took Aspirin
Author - Thejendra B.S

Book Details
‘Hey, are you suffering from any disorders?’
‘Hmm, I don’t think so.’
‘Are you sure?’
‘Yes, I am sure.’
‘Then why were you in a lousy mood yesterday and gulping down those aspirins?’
‘Oh, yesterday was real bad.’
‘Why was it bad?’
‘Well, I had slogged and burnt the midnight oil to help my client, and guess what happened?’
‘I am not good at guessing. Tell me.’
‘Well, I didn’t get any appreciation for the hard work I did. Not even a simple thank you. And the client even had the nerve to find some silly faults and shout at me. I was extremely disappointed at his behavior. That’s why I was in a bad mood.’
‘Aha, I knew it! You are suffering from a disorder.’
‘Hey, what disorder are you talking about? Is it wrong to expect some thanks for what I did?’
‘Yes, it is wrong.’
‘Now, come on! Don’t be silly. It is natural for everyone to expect some appreciation for their work, or to get angry when insulted. You know everybody wears a hat that says - make me feel special.’
‘Hmm, no wonder you look stressed and exhausted wearing that heavy hat. Just throw it away and you will soon become taller, lighter and vibrant.’
‘Huh?’


 No Easy Future
Seven Habits to Tackle Tomorrow

Secondly, even if you enter a forest to try that it is impossible to start living like Tarzan by making friends with all the animals and fighting crocodiles when necessary. Living in a forest involves learning several tough survival skills, icky lifestyle changes and a long time to blend into a forest life. So running away to a real forest to escape the hassles of the modern concrete jungle is a lousy idea. Hence, you must to learn to thrive and survive in the modern concrete jungle even if it is difficult.

But, wait, don’t be disappointed! It is still possible to experience several of the joys of a hermit without actually running away to a real forest. Now how is that possible?

Mind Candies for a Lousy Day
A Short and Snappy Guide
Author - Thejendra B.S
 
Book Details
Just type the word stress in any internet search engine and it will throw up a million pieces of information on it and the harm it can cause. Mankind (and even animals and plants) has always been plagued by stress from ages. On our planet the number of reasons why people get stressed or agitated could run into thousands. For example, the modern crazy workplace is one of the single biggest sources of stress for employees and their families. A stressed out employee can not only cause problems for himself, but also cause various problems to all his family members. And you cannot simply ignore stress as it is a serious health matter and will deteriorate you with time. So what do you do? The common methods of stress reduction are attending mind-body workshops like meditation, yoga, going to a counselor, or taking some prescribed medicines, etc. But such methods take time, cost and effort. However, there is another stress management technique that is simple, cost-effective, non-medicinal and extremely powerful. And you don’t need any professional help to use this technique unless you are a severe medical case. This is the technique of regularly reading Inspirational quotes by famous personalities over the ages.

How will reading quotes help? It has often been observed that a short piercing sentence, a stinging insult, or a chance remark by someone can have a terrific impact on you than a long sermon or advice. For example, I remember reading a true story of a bankrupt businessman on his way to commit suicide suddenly stopped in his rogue pursuit by accidentally reading an inspirational quote on some billboard. So a famous quote actually saved his life by giving him a sudden dose of inspiration to continue with life no matter what. Such is the power of an inspirational quote. This inspirational effect is very similar to how a small pin can puncture a high pressure balloon or a car type. And most inspirational quotes are also short piercing sentences of wisdom that can puncture your high stress and change your life in an instant. It is like taking an aspirin for the tormented mind. So whenever you are feeling doubtful about your own abilities, when disappointments are staring at your face, and you don’t see any light at the end of the tunnel simply dive into some great quotes in this book, and you will begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. And if you make a habit of reading inspirational quotes regularly you will experience a stark difference in the way you think, act and behave henceforth. Like tiny homeopathic medicines, these gems of wisdom can gradually make you calmer, handle criticism, understand mankind better and become well equipped to tackle life’s ups and downs.

But what is a mind candy? Instead of calling them inspirational quotes I call them as mind candies because they make your mind sweet, just like regular candies make your taste buds happy. Thousands of such literary gems have been stated by hundreds of famous personalities over the ages. This book contains a list of carefully selected mind candies to puncture your bad moods created for the usual reasons like hopelessness, fear of the future, insecurity, bad bosses, family and health troubles, city life, etc. Hope you will like them and more importantly read them regularly. Why read regularly? That is because stress is like dust and will invade your mind again and again, so it must be dusted again and again. So let us start.

‘But why don’t you believe in it?’
