SHARES

Divided into 19 chapters, No Regrets: The Guilt Free Women's Guide To A Good Life explains what it takes to live a life you want. The book begins with the author explaining how everyone around us wants us to be perfect and why we need to realize that we can't be upbeat at all times.  With no preachy prose, the book showcases a refreshing perspective. Moreover, the books and series references between the pages are sure to increase your TBR. 

This is not a self-help book. It's a book that tells us what not to do, what to remember and what to forget. From being a mother to lessons learnt from our own mothers; managing money to marriage; coping with pain and anger to taking ownership of our health and growing old, Kaveree Bamzai, first woman editor of one of India's largest newsmagazines, a wife, and mother of two boys and two dogs, tells us how to live a guilt-free life, with a little help from a host of highly accomplished women. With sparkling advice from Naina Lal Kidwai, Arianna Huffington, Sudha Murty, Smriti Irani, Twinkle Khanna and Sania Mirza, among others, No Regrets is the go-to book as we fumble and stumble through life.

Bits of Brilliance from the Book: 

Such is our luck when an iron woman like Indira Gandhi wins a war, declares an emergency, and still manages to win a popular election to return to power, she simply falls to pieces when her beloved son dies, never ever able to recover either her self belief or her self confidence. And if history offers Hillary Clinton a chance, one who has survived an unfaithful husband and years of being reviled for wanting to work, she loses to a man who fits the textbook description of bully and misogynist. 

If there’s anything I learned well and in time is this: there’s no point in having regrets or feeling guilty. It’s like carrying a whole lot of excess baggage and it’s not even monogrammed Louis Vuitton. So why bother?

All you need to live comfortably in Delhi is a cool, a driver and the membership of a club. What they didn't tell you is that you end up spending your entire salary on that.

The book includes interview of many successful woman personalities like Twinkle Khanna, Vanitha Narayan- chairman of IBM India, Smriti Irani, Farah Khan, Sudha Murty, Kiran Rao, Naina Lal Kidwai, Ariana Huffington, IAS officer Anita Karwal, Shobha De, Sania Mirza, Sangita Reddy- MD of Apollo Hospitals, Nandini Harinath- operations officer for Mars Orbit Mission in ISRO among others.  

The book is a bit similar to Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In or Michelle Obama's Becoming and touches upon every aspect of womanhood.
