Life Know how by Viswanatha Reddy Thalakola

This book is mainly targeted at young adults (20 – 35 years), but can also be used by people of all ages. It is divided into 6 main topics i.e. solving problems, managing interpersonal relationships, dealing with work, coping with negative things, fulfilling aspirations and handling other important matters. Under the main topics there are several sub topics. 
The first chapter in the book highlights important life problems. The author advices one to accept that you have a problem and then put your best efforts to resolve it. Also, it is okay to take help of other people in solving some of your problems. Solutions that are given for life problems are simple and anyone can understand.

The chapter on handling friends provides great information. We make friends throughout life and I felt that this is the most important chapter in the book. You should treat your friends the way you want to be treated by them.

The chapter on handling people explains that there are so many countries in this world. In each country they have their own culture. People live according to local customs. When dealing with anyone we have to take this into account. If we do this, a lot misunderstanding can be avoided.

The chapter on dealing with work advices that you should have a career in an industry that you like to work. If this is not done, later on in life you will feel as if work is a burden.

There is a great chapter on time management with excellent tips for managing your time.
The book has 12 chapters on coping with negative things like addiction, anger, conflict, depression, mistakes, failures, rejection, unhappiness, etc. All of them have excellent advice on how to manage these negative aspects of life. I think this is another highlight of this book.
The book has well written chapters with advice on handling body and mind, goals, personal development as well. Finally, there are chapters that provide information on dealing with criticism, making important decisions, handling money, etc.

It seems the most important aspects of life are covered. You can use this book as a good reference. This is what I like about this book. I recommend this to all my friends.
