Glimpses of journey experienced
When I was seeking a job at Tom's company I wanted to know a bit about the company. So started browsing the website. My curiosity was piqued while I was browsing the company website and saw some books authored by Tom listed there and came across this title. I was not sure what to expect from the book but when I read on I saw bits and pieces of similar experiences. I don't consider myself a strong believer so it not about belief but about experiences of some strong willed elder siblings around me that have been my inspiration. Some inspirational reading. Thanks.
