    Pitch It is an Management Book but you don’t get bored with many management jargons as it is having analogies with most lovable game Cricket People can never forget the incidents of cricket So recalling them and relating to Management case studies is just eye opening Nicely captured many memorable incidents of cricket and Management wining stories within a book with an apt cover page great piece of work

  6. Vivek Vivek says:

    Written by a college senior the concept of mashing business learnings with cricketing analogies was an interesting combination To pick 60 analogies is a tough and back breaking expedition in the world of research and to succintly represent them in an easy to read manner is well done but I feel a number of analogies and stories were forced into the book and were too generic to provide any flavour Also an armchair critic approach to all the stories makes it of a stretched factoid piece The brevity of the original article made it a blockbuster

    I enjoyed reading Pitch It by Dev Prasad I liked the fact that his personal insight is combined with cricketing and corporate incidents to bring out useful lessons which can be used by committed professionals The book has lots of useful nuggets of information For example I didn't know that Sunil Gavaskar's average against West Indies was a whopping 65 runs
