Four Corners of the Circle by Mohit Jain and Amita Sood: A Review

Blurb: Ever heard about the four corners of a circle? Since Childhood, it has been taught in school that the circle has no corners. Life is a never-ending marathon. It keeps on revolving in circles, and everyone is in search of a final destination, a corner, that they never reach. This book is a small initiative to throw light on different aspects of the education system and how could we join hands to make it more productive.
It guides the aspiring students to follow a right approach, take correct decision, and overcome distractions in their career. It advocates that the educational institutions should focus on enlightening the lives of the students by providing quality education, quality learning ambiance, practical grounds to implement class room theories, and by helping students convert their black cat into a white one. The book is neither biased toward students nor educational institutes; the sole purpose is to provide their individual perspectives and reach to a common conclusion.
The book contains five theories, which Mr. Mohit Jain has discovered in his sixteen years of teaching experience and which would help the youngsters reach closer and closer to their goals.
This book is about us.

Verdict: ‘Four Corners of the Circle’ is the first book of mentor, teacher Mohit Jain and Amita Sood. With this book Mohit Jain has started a very appreciable initiative to improve the way of teaching or the way of thinking.

The name itself gives a hard time for reader’s brain cells and the cover reflects exactly the same thought. How could a circle have four corners, to know the answer one must read this book. In this book the author has scripted his fourteen years of experience in the field of teaching and mentoring, which I think is price-less.

From the prologue the author has stated that this book is going to change the way students think or I would rather say the management student think. Being a management teacher himself the name of the first chapter of the book is ‘should not do MBA’. The author had faced a lot in his life and learned a lot from his experience and by reading this book readers can also learn from his experiences. Students are going to love the way the author had described his thoughts by giving wonderful examples which is familiar to relate. The book will surely motivate students and help them to take the right foot forward.

I would like to congratulate Amita Sood for framing this book in delightful words and yes there is difference between author and writer. The content is divided in small chapters which are easy to read and understand. Readers are going to love the names of the chapters and those words of the author printed in bold and italic. Being a non-fiction/self-help, this book does perfect justice to its genre.

While reading this at times I felt that the author have described a bit more than needed about his journey or his struggle. In the first half readers might find the book a bit boring but the author has made up for this in the second half of the book. I can very easily say that the book and the ‘Nine Point Theory’ will leave a lasting effect among the readers.

Final Words: This book should be prescribed to each and every student who are about to take decision for higher studies or are about to enter in the corporate field, even parents and teachers should learn and support Mohit Jain for this noble initiative. A field guide for students.
