Book reviews

Don’t lose your mind, lose your weight by Rujuta Diwekar
India’s top celebrity fitness guru has worked with the who's who of Bollywood. Now she lets you in on her secret you can eat anything you want just as long as you plan for it. No crash dieting, no carb deprivation, no unbidden cravings. Rujuta teaches you the three simple steps to dieting heaven: learn about your body, create the right plan for it, and slowly adjust your food habits.

Spouse by Shobha De
How marriages work and why they fail… Marriage is an adventure, says Shobhaa De, celebrity writer, devoted wife and mother of six. It's about trust, companionship, affection and sharing. It's also about learning to cope with your partner's moods and eccentricities. Not to mention the delicate balancing act between parents, children, friends and a career, and the sometimes overpowering need to get away from it all.

The Zahir by Paulo Coelho
I found this book very boring. This is definitely not one of Paulo’s best. My favorites are: Veronika decides to die and The alchemist.
