A decent job?
Keith has both. He is a software engineer at a reputable company and has a girlfriend whom he loves a lot.
Yet, there is something missing in his life. He is not even close to being happy.
Only after losing his girlfriend, he realizes what the reason for his unhappiness is.
He realizes that he is caught up in the wrong career.
With time running out, he knows that he must switch to a new career — one that makes him happy.
But, is 24 too late to do that? Is he making a mistake?
Find out as Keith follows his heart in pursuit of an impossible-looking dream.

My review:

There are motivational books now and here is one attempt with a nice reading novel in the plot. So at first glance there is a novel and there is a motivational part. What you get in Big Switch is primarily a slice of life events which will help the readers see through the circumstances and motivate them as the character goes through different sets of emotional ups and downs.

Lets be clear that life is not that fair as much as we would love to be, and author with his character Keith has rekindled hope for us a lot in the sense that we can see parallels of what Keith undergoes in his career and personal life. Sometimes the narrative I felt could have been better, he could have avoided the gossip chatter that comes once in a while.

The characterisation is good and the language is simple and sometimes the author has taken liberty in making it conversational most of the times. I loved the sports part of it since that’s a very low priority in our lives especially once you are out of school.

A good motivational book but I think it was a bit long for a motivational book having read small books of the same genre.

But for a debut author this is a great one and look forward to more titles and little crispier version of the same. On the other side I would have loved a hard copy of the same, it would have made the reading faster especially with motivational books like these.

One can identify with the characters at different points and the industry here is a giveaway and the project managers are all the same may be. It takes an individual to really work on his side and then take things up to make it happen with others.

A good book and a nice read. I took three sessions to finish this, but this can be done in one session at a stretch.
