Selfienomics By Revant
Publication Date: 3rd November 2016
Blurb from Goodreads: “Original version of a #selfie: Taking a photo of yourself rather than having someone else take it for you. You try out various filters and select the one that makes you look your best. #Selfienomics version of a #selfie: reflecting on different aspects of your life and taking the initiative to improve so that you can be the best version of yourself.”
And so begins Selfienomics, the first Indian self-help book written for young people by a young entrepreneur who speaks their language. Offering workable, practical advise on how to manage finances, start a business, complete creative projects and how to be a better citizen, Selfienomics is so funny, upbeat and entertaining, it’s not just a must-read but also a mast-read.
Cover Page: I liked that yellow! It’s catchy and doesn’t seem like a normal boring self help book cover.
- If you are neither happy yourself nor making others happy, you should consider re-prioritizing life immediately.
- Life is a balance between making others happy and keeping yourself happy.
- #Selfienomics version of a#Selfie: Reflecting on different aspects of your life and taking the initiative so that you can be the best version of yourself.
- Original version of a #Selfie: Taking a photo of yourself rather than having someone else take it for you. You try out various filters and select the one that makes you look your best.
Overall: Liking a self help book when you’re a YA addict is not common though this book is gaining a lot of appreciation from all the readers. What was unique about this book is that it was relatable in many aspects. The usage of hastags were something new and creative.
Reading a motivational concept and suddenly you read a hindi movie/song hastag written in accordance will make you laugh and taints deep at the same time. You don’t need to be a specific reader to read this book, more than a self help book this was a comedy read with its quirky remarks turning lives to a right direction.
