Book Review: Straight from the heart by Rajeev Moothedath

Straight from the heart

Author: Rajeev Moothedath
Rating: 3.5/5

Welcome to the world where people are so much engrossed in the rat race that they have forgotten the difference between what is wrong and what is right. But are people to be blamed alone? Probably not! Even the Organizations and workstations are equally responsible for forcing the people to expose their dark side. The words ethics and morals have lost their essence. “Straight from the heart” is a sincere attempt to clear the air and give a sneak peek behind the veil of myths that people have about the HR professionals. This book is a collection of real life experiences and truths about ‘life in a corporate’. Unlike all the others, it takes great courage and conviction to choose the road of honesty and keep pace with the developments, preserving the ethical values and morals. This book is all about the tasks, the way of working and the principles followed now by the HR professionals. It is not necessary to follow Western culture blindly. Instead, it is important to set boundaries and keep up your work ethics, which will eventually make this profession better and be effective to both the parties- the customers and well the HRs.

My opinion
“A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world”.  ‘Straight from the heart’ is a book that should be read by everyone in the corporate sector. While working incessantly for years, we forget which path we are treading on. With time, it does not even matter whether we are right or wrong. It is only when ‘Karma’ hits back, we are remorseful. But isn’t it better to nip the problems in the bud itself? With this piece of literature, the author tries to expose the truth behind the actions of HR professionals and also explains why it is necessary to stay on the right path. Being written by an experienced management professional, this book offers guidance and training. The best part of the book is where the author brings out the root – individualism and discusses its effect on the customer organization relationship.

The language is lucid, the experiences are relatable and the breakdown of the content into different chapters is what binds the interest of the readers. The author has successfully targeted the wrong path and discussed how easy life becomes if we traverse the path of honesty, from the very beginning.

Overall a good book that offers a lot!
