Publisher's Summary

Life is unpredictable and full of challenges. One wrong step and everything can come crashing down. In such a scenario, one often wishes for a road map of life, but how is that possible?

Best-selling author Radhakrishnan Pillai's much-anticipated book, Chanakya in Daily Life, will help you navigate the rough seas of life and stay on course. Covering all aspects of life from the personal to the professional, it will tell you everything from how to begin your day to how to end it; how to choose the right job, stay financially secure, have a happy married life, raise your children the right way, achieve the perfect work-life balance; and much more. Like always, Pillai decodes and simplifies the visionary king-maker Chanakya's teachings from the Arthashastra and Chanakya Niti to provide solutions for any problem that might crop up in any aspect of your life.

Thus Chanakya in Daily Life is the perfect guru who expects only one thing from the shishy - a willingness to learn.

Very poor naration

Very very poor naration. Utterly monotonous. Difficult to listen beyond 5 mins. No such thing as intonation.

Enjoyed listening

Excellent narration, good writing. Apt and useful for people of all ages and profession. Younger generations would benefit if they read/ listen to this book at an early age.

The narrator just destroyed a great read!!

The book seems good, but the monotone, strange narration makes it hard to pay attention to it ! Finding hard to continue because of narration, feels like wasted money, should have bought the book and read instead :(

Superb book on life management.

One of the remarkable book by Radhakrishnan Pillai on becoming a master on personal, professional and family front. I wish I would have read this book at the start of the year.

Chanakya had developed a state of art management science centuries before in India. Most of the modern day management aspects were already planned & implemented by Chanakya and they are available in written form. Many of the modern day management gurus are not even close to the solutions provided by Chanakya. Radhakrishnan helps in decoding this knowledge and provides modern day situations for easy implementation.

The language is simple and concepts are very apt. The chapters are short and you do not lose interest once you start reading the book.

People who wants to build right character & right empire around themselves must read this book.

I would like to thank Mr. Pillai for giving us such a practical and amazing peak into our own history and ways by which we can use it to our benefit and apply it to our day to day life.

Only one word Pathetic,Feel sorry for Chanakya

Any one who has landed on these audible searching for Chanakya lessons for life, please don't even think of clicking buy.
I think the previous 2 ratings are by author himself, none of the lessons has any relevance to Chanakya, it is more of meditation technique rather then life teaching, example include go early to bed wake up early with the sound of music, exercise daily etc.

I don't know when the actual Chanakya verses starts in these audio book as i lost interest after 2 hours of listening to these crap, anyone interested in meditation opt for some other audio book certainly not these also the narration is more ROBOTIC with plain accent no emotion in voice what so ever.

I wasted my one credit behind these worthless buy, don't waste yours.

Totally disappointed.

I would suggest even audible to have a review team in place the one who will review the audio presentation and content before put it for sale on there website.

Disappointed listener.

Must Read for daily success

Long term goals can be broken down in to combination of few short term goals and short term goals can be broken down into daily goals. This book will help you excel at every day goals and responsibilities. It gives you an ancient wisdom in a new package that provides valuable and practical information.

I highly recommend for people to read this book.

Good content but the narrator !!!

good content but could have done better with a better narrator.
Chanakya was highly intellectual person and it is worth reading about him and his teachings.
