`Writ­ten by a vet­eran of the pub­lish­ing in­dus­try, this is a mem­oir about in­ter­ac­tions with au­thors, celebri­ties and cel­e­brated au­thors. Ashok Cho­pra’s ex­pe­ri­ences while com­mis­sion­ing books by some of the most cel­e­brated au­thors of our age are given in de­tail along­with de­li­cious vignettes. Th­ese pro­files of au­thors not only serve to out­line the di­men­sions of Cho­pra’s ca­reer but the ten­sions that ac­com­pany the job of a pub­lisher. In de­tail­ing the coax­ing and pur­suit of peo­ple to write and write on time, emerges an in­ter­est­ing mem­oir that of­fers an in­sight into how pub­lish­ing works.
