Book Review –

The New Rules of Business by Rajesh Srivastava, a 300 paged book, is a complete guide on how you can be a better businessman and excel in your work. What I observed was maximum emphasis was given on why customer satisfaction is so important along with supporting real-life examples.

The book gives you points on how to improve and which factors, when inculcated and acted upon, can make things better for you and your company/brand/business. Delightful experience, customer loyalty, employee care, customer services – all of these are linked and are the key to grow.

The book is recommended for everyone, especially for the ones who are finding themselves stranded in a particular business phase or are about to start-up. It will help you find out what you need to focus on priority. The book ends with business strategies for cost and growth in detail with examples.

I honestly appreciate how Rajesh Shrivastava has penned down his learning with real examples because that is how you find legit guidance and learning.
