If there is one personality about whom the Indians want to know as much as possible, it is no one other than Virat Kohli. After the retirement of Sachin tendulkar from Cricket, if there is one name that has managed to hold Indians to Cricket, it is the consistency and excellence of Virat Kohli. Any article or video about him gets million views just because people are eager to know even little things about him. How could I not have picked a book when it is 141 pages of talks and discussions only about Virat Kohli? I am talking about the book named “Winning Like VIRAT: Think & Succeed Like Kohli” which is written by Mr. Abhirup Bhattacharya and published by Rupa publication.
The book talks about what makes Virat Kohli the special personality and player that he is. The book tells about many things that Virat Kohli does on and off field that makes him so desirable for every person who is a fan of this game called Cricket.

The book discusses even the latest phenomenon till March 2017 which makes reading it more interesting as you feel that you are reading a newspaper article that has got published just after yesterday’s match.
The way author integrates Virat Kohli’s style and methods with corporate world is worth commending. After every instance, author shares a learning tip that we can keep with ourselves to succeed in our life. How to be a good individual performer, team player, a leader and an inspiring figure even for those who haven’t worked with us is taught giving real examples of how Virat Kohli has managed situations in Cricket on and off the field. This book isn’t a biography of his but shares some specific moments from his career to prove some points that we, as human beings and corporate professionals, should always keep in mind and work accordingly.
