“A very timely, important, and insightful research report on perceived well being and happiness. It is timely because during the lockdown due to the COVID pandemic, people have appreciated time shared with the family is as important as earning income. It is important because while the traditional economic measures such as GDP and per capita income are good for measuring a person’s well being, it takes good health and healthy relationships to make people happy.. Finally, the report is insightful because, with a very large sample, it is able to measure differences within the country between the regions and the states.”

I enjoyed reading the manuscript of Rajesh Pillania’s book. He illustrates Strategy by applying it to personal life. He addresses young people, who can benefit longest. He takes one of the two crucial strategic choices that the young have to make --- spouse; and career. He manages to illustrate almost all the concepts and models in the management literature on strategy formulation; implementation; and results. He gives examples of both an ethical, effective strategy of love; and a manipulative, ineffective approach. The book is simple; but, not simplistic. It is humorous, but not flippant. I wish him and the book all success; and even more success for young readers in starting happy marriages; and for older readers to enhance the joy in their marriages.
