 My Rating:

Welcome to You 20.0 by Atul Jain is a book about  "your journey to your best version by discovering and achieving your dreams". The book is divided into four sections. The first part is about introspection and preparing plans for yourself. The second part makes you look deeper into your plan and also takes you through the tools needed to achieve your vision. The third part deepens that understanding. The fourth part is about leaving your mark on others.

First, I was intrigued by the title. Why 20.0 and not 2.0? Well, you will find that as you go through the book. One caveat here, the book is influenced by Law of Attraction. If you believe in it, then the book will furnish useful insights. If not, there are parts which might not appeal to you. However, the other parts are still worth reading.

Let's get on with what I liked about the book.
  • The book begins with a moving tale of APJ Abdul Kalam and at different points, it draws from experiences of several people like Steve Jobs. By doing this, the writer has bypassed the trap of the text being too preachy keeping the narrative interesting.The language is easy to read.
  •  Important sections are emphasized, so it makes for a smooth re-read.
  • There are exercises in the book which are effective in mapping your career trajectory. They encourage you to think and bring out your wildest fancies.
  • The book is comprehensive and contains practical ideas. It delineates some difficult decisions you might have to make along the way.
  • I absolutely loved the idea of creating your own Wikipedia page.

However, at certain places, I felt that the book was a little dragging. There was no need to dive deeper into some topics.  While, at other places, he could have elaborated more.

In a nutshell, it is a quick, breezy read with a bunch of fresh ideas.

PS: I received the copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.`
