I had gone to the dentist recently and while I was waiting for the doctor to arrive, I started reading Varun Duggirala’s Everything is out of Syllabus- An Instruction Manual for Life and Work, with a foreword by Pooja Dhingra and an endorsement by Anupama Chopra. The book is by Penguin Books.
The book consists of five short sections, a bibliography, and an acknowledgments section. The cover image is by Getty Images and the cover design is by Akangksha Samah. The book falls under the self-help/non-fiction genre.
Section 1 is Start
Section 2 is Choose
Section 3 is Learn
Section 4 is Connect
Section 5 is Reflect
Here is the blurb of the book ( from Amazon)
Life seldom comes with an instruction manual or a guidebook. It’s often messy and unpredictable too. While our education may prepare us for situations covered within its set syllabus, most of life happens outside this realm and this leaves us grappling with questions about work, life, and everything in between.
Hence, this book.
Varun Duggirala has survived and thrived in a system that throws curveballs at us without the tools to actually overcome them. In Everything Is Out of Syllabus, he offers answers to important questions like:
What is the true meaning of success?
How can one become more creative and think outside the box?
How can we connect with people, including ourselves?
And much more.
Most importantly, he tells readers what skills one needs to master to live a more fulfilled life that is optimized for happiness.
Full of anecdotal wisdom, this book is partly funny, mostly reflective, and completely authentic. Everything Is Out of Syllabus is a must-read for anyone who is trying to understand life and figure out their own roadmap to navigate it.
