Dr George Easaw ★★★★★

The book makes for an interesting read. The real life case studies add to the appeal. I strongly recommend that this book be marketed well so that students and teachers do not lose out on the opportunity to read a good book.

Sharanabasava Aralimarad, HR Director ★★★★★

I enjoyed reading the book. Appreciate the real-life examples. The chapters on talent management and human capital management were brilliant. Language is easy on your nerves.

Dhanush Gowda ★★★★★

I enjoyed reading the book. It is a must for every student who specialises in Human Resources at the MBA level.

Girija Santhanam ★★★★★

The book is very comprehensive and makes for engaging reading. Since I am a strategy consultant, the title was intriguing. I was not disappointed with what I read. The book has exhaustively covered all the essential elements of human capital management. I wish it was available as a hard copy!
