About the Book: Thinking Smart: How to Master Work, Life and Everything In-Between

You are on top of your career. You love the job you are doing. You were rated ‘excellent’ in your latest assessment. But, for reasons beyond your control, you have just been fired.

The modern executive faces many challenges. The old days of steady jobs in safe posts are gone. Technology is transforming work, rendering jobs obsolete and constantly moving the goal posts for performance. But the responsibilities and priorities remain as they always were: to the company, the colleagues one works with or leads, to one's family and oneself. How does one keep improving one's skills and getting more from life?

In this scenario of contradictory goals and ambidextrous skills, the secret lies in thinking smart. Faced with his own crisis, Nirmalya Kumar, renowned professor, recognized globally for his marketing and strategy expertise, used the experience to come out a winner. Here is a book reminiscent of Peter Drucker's classic Managing Oneself. Given in bite-sized, easily accessible chapters are ideas and wisdom that will help readers in their own lives and careers, from managing people, teams, strategy, finances to even a few tips on managing life.

In Prof. Nirmalya Kumar’s words, “Unexpectedly, and suddenly, being fired, how do you spend a year before any new assignment commences? I had always dreamt of writing a general interest book that encapsulates those of my life learnings that are worth sharing with others. One could say this book has been thirty years in the making. For me, this is my best book and also the most personal. I loved writing it. And, unlike all my previous seven books that were targeted to marketing or strategy professionals, I think there is something in Thinking Smart for everyone.

While I had offers from several publishers, Harper Collins impressed me with their global reach, Indian distribution and professional approach. It was a pleasure working with them to bring Thinking Smart to fruition.”

“For executives it is an invaluable book finding key tips on fundamental issues they would need to think about-whether it is career growth, developing capabilities, managing finances, salary or even just how important they are to the organization.” Says Krishan Chopra, Publisher, Business and Non-fiction at HarperCollins India.

“Thinking Smart is truly one of the smartest books that makes you ready to master work and life. Fifty-two crisp chapters covering almost every issue that a modern executive grapples with both at the workplace and outside of it. Dr. Nirmalya Kumar possesses a unique blend of a philosopher’s mind and a millennial’s ebullience. It’s this quality that makes his insights so profound. Anyone who wants to get more out of his life should read this book.” Says Akriti Tyagi, Head of Department, Marketing at HarperCollins India.
