For a fulltime freelancer, Disha’s Corporate Avatars was a walk down memory lane. She’s brought back so many memories in her book and in some way even reassured me of what all I am happy without!
Corporate Avatars was like moving back in time and remembering all the different kind of people I’ve worked with in the past. For those who are still living the corporate life, the book will be a different kind of amusing – for they could probably spot themselves amongst the pages of this book. Disha’s always written books which readers can identify with and take inspiration from, this one sets the exceptions higher.
Each chapter in the book discusses one kind of character present in every office (e.g.) the micromanager, the whiner, the one who always calls for a meeting, the one always ready with excuses, the one who makes more noise than the work s/he does, and so on. I tried to think but couldn’t think of any that she could have missed expect the pervert, but then all of them could be that or none of them.
Disha’s style of writing is witty and simple, and she’s kept the jargons limited so that even those who have never been a part of the corporate sector too could read and enjoy the book.
