#BookReview ; It Doesn't Hurt To Be Nice by Amisha Sethi

Kiara is a dynamic, thirty-something girl who has reached great heights professionally, and is the apple of the eye for almost everyone who knows her. But she never took any short cuts to become happier, wiser, healthier and more compassionate. 
She had to find rays of hope where the dark tunnel seemed unending, and identify shade in life's burning path. She found little pearls of wisdom in chasing her dreams, in spreading laughter, in learning from scriptures and philosophers, and even at one point in almost ending her life. 
More than Kiara's story and the wisdom she achieves through the various dramatic and hilarious experiences, this book is a motion picture with you in the lead role. You as the 'hero' who can beat the most stubborn of villains — most of which lie deep within us…our fear, unkindness, selfish interests, negative thoughts and jealousy. You as the 'heroine' who is sharp and witty in talking, selfless and caring in love, and charming and beautiful inside 
out, like none other (perhaps a 2.0 version of you). 
Walk with Kiara to find a better you, because It Doesn't Hurt to be Nice.

I started to read It Doesn’t Hurt To Be Nice with a happy thought since I already loved it’s title & cover & finished reading it with a smile on my face. Amisha Sethi a corporate genius & awardee of Young women rising star at World Women Leadership Congress 2014, but there’s another side of hers too! She is also keenly interested in ancient scriptures & that is quite evident in this book where she uses different excerpts appropriately & beautifully.

The story’s protagonist is Kiara Seth, an ambitious woman in the corporate life but still believes in doing & wishing good for everyone even those who try to defame her. A character which should be an idol for everyone who thinks that they need to get their hands dirty in corporate life or in that matter in any circumstance! She marries her close friend Ram & believes that it’s going to be a fairy tale come true. But does fairy tales REALLY come true? Will Kiara abandon her beliefs for achieving her goals like everyone does in the corporate world? Will she get the result she deserves? And many such mind riveting questions are answered in this book. We should ALL read these kinds of books because they have the potential to make the world a better place.

Some of my favourite quotes from the book are as follows,

“The biggest religion on this planet is LOVE.”

“Try to create a world around you where you hand-pick people whom you truly want to be with, who are truly having a positive impact in your life.. Not just in terms of money, sex or society pleasures, but in making you a nicer person with each passing day.”

“There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it”
