Hitesh, a common man and an auditor, is engrossed in his underpaid 9 to10 job, slogging his way, burning the night oil only to give sheen to careers of his supervisors & partners. One day, he stumbles upon an opportunity which makes him an overnight rock star of corporate India. He tastes success and very soon gets addicted to it.
However, success comes with a price-tag, the corner cabin and the chair always had their own sets of thorns. Hitesh, in this journey, meets various people – some sting him on his path of glory, some propel him up, some try to eat into his pie of success, and few help him when the world stops believing in him.An auditor, who not so long ago inspected the cooked books of an organization and voiced the fishy observations to the management, become’s the CEO of one of the group companies. Later, he is accused to be the commander-in-chief of a scam – a scam that changes his life forever.
The book “Confessions of a Confused Accountant” does make a reader empathize with Hitesh at several incidences. The story also unfolds in a way that it keeps the curiosity quotient up. A fast paced story with limited characters,the book is a quick read over the weekend or a leisurely evening. The book is also fairly conclusive in its way of giving a message of “fighting one’s own battle and trusting very few”.
The book is the story of an average, hard working professional, his brave fight to rise above the average, and showcases the triumph of friendship and truth in the end.
” A story which acts like a glue stick, and forces you not to keep the book down”. The book, if picked up on a weekend, will ensure that you don’t miss the IPL
