AN INSIGHT INTO THE BANKING WORLD

Nov 16, 2015 08:09 PM 848 Views

I read the book in almost like 2 days .I went really quick about reading this book.It was quite "what happens next" at some certain points  but at other points its quite elementary to predict what happens next. The way the dismissal of Sundeep takes place was depicted in a good way.I basicall...Read More

Slow and steady wins the race

Aug 20, 2014 06:59 PM 2485 Views

It was summery, the atmosphere was so ideal to finish a book in one sitting. My sister reads quite a lot of books so I asked her to suggest a good read. Since I just graduated that time she recommended me to read "If God was a Banker". Wondering what's the relation with God and a Banker in no ti...Read More

Almost like a Fairy Tale

May 10, 2013 08:36 PM 4154 Views

The book is almost like a fairy tale. Two IIM toppers change the face of the financial industry in just no time and without any difficulties, one scam that is tackled so easily and in the end they all live happily ever after. It resembles a Bollywood film.

World to Know

Aug 23, 2012 05:26 PM 4738 Views

I rarely read books & this is the one which caught my attention as my husband suggested, truth is always bitter, the other side of a Corporate life, I wonder its constructed on a true story. If God was really a Banker, I think the wicked one wouldn't have escaped punishment

Elementary and substandard..

Aug 07, 2012 01:21 PM 5019 Views

The author seems to be absolutely brilliant and high qualified and professional.. but the book seems to be written by a 7th grader aspiring to be Sheldon. Even Chetan Bhagat seems "literature" after having read this one. Wonder how it became the best seller.. but maybe, something that elementary...Read More

Bad Book

Dec 06, 2011 05:54 PM 6236 Views

This is a substandard stuff. It gives an impression that  whatever International Banks achieved in India is through  pimps like Naresh and his "Assets". This is simply ridiculous and absurd. I was thinking of giving this book to my son for reading. However, X-rated  unwarranted description of...Read More

Worth a look!

Sep 18, 2011 04:35 PM 5457 Views

Reading some of the reviews here on mouthshut, it is clear that there are mixed reviews on the book. I for one would recommend it as its worth a read considering its uniqueness in exploring banking politics. However Ravi after reading Devil in Pinstripes it was clear Ravi made good on his initia...Read More

Naresh the Devil

Jun 04, 2011 09:56 AM 5552 Views

There are so many people like "Naresh" in this world ready to make a fast buck and screw up people's lives. These are the true Devils in disguise. I loved the book because it was a wonderful story. I could only dream of being such high level students as "Swami, Kalpana or Sundeep". I also lik...Read More

Can it happen????

Apr 06, 2011 11:41 AM 5572 Views

THIS BOOK MUST BE READ IN ONE SHOT OTHERWISE THE STORY WILL BE BORING. THE FLOW IS GOOD BUT TWIST IN THE STORY IS UNBELIEVABLE. HOW THE ONE OF THE LARGEST BANK IN THE WORLD GETS HEAT OF COMPETITION IN JUST FEW WEEKS. HOW THE FRAUD SO EASILY TAKES PLACE. WHAT THE WRITER WANTS TO SAY IN THE BOOK. ...Read More

Bollywood lackluster

Mar 28, 2011 04:09 PM 5410 Views

Story line is good. While reading the book you can predict the future events almost perfectly because good guy is always good and bad guy is always bad. I kept on reading till the end hoping that something dramatic would happen but at the end everything works out well for the villain(Sundeep) an...Read More

I want my 5 hours back

Jul 14, 2010 10:19 AM 5569 Views

The book is like a sub-prime customer that every bank must look to avoid, failing which there is a toxic asset weighing down upon the balance sheet, something that you just cannot flush out of the system as much as you try. Once the rating agencies( friends, family and peer group) who histori...Read More

Completely Bollywood

Apr 20, 2010 05:20 PM 5331 Views

I like reading the book till second last page. The book kept me engrossed in it for 3 long days and it is indeed the fastest book I read after Chetan Bhagat's first write up. The story line is good but what disappointed me was the end. I agree with the point that the corporate world is full o...Read More

The two contrast ways people grow, the ways they adopt to reach top and succeed are simply superb!!! I even ...Read More
