Book Review: Supertraits of Superstars

Title: Supertraits of Superstars
Author: Priyanka Sinha Jha
Publisher: Rupa
Price: 195 INR
Pages: 219
Year: 2014

This book is highly inspiring. The language is simple. The book is well structured as well. A self help book, Bollywood style! The caricatures at the beginning of each chapter are to some point not relevant. Especially Vidya Balan’s!

But the colorful background design of the cover is an eye catcher. Priyanka Jha's 'Supertraits of Superstars' cites examples of eleven superstars and focuses on one (or the most vital) of their many traits which has helped them to become what they are today.

An actor's life is never easy. It's not as glamorous or colorful as we think. With such glamour it is easy to get carried away. Priyanka lists interesting incidents and intelligent decisions which these eleven stars have made in their life which acted as turning-points in their career.

Priyanka doesn't even make an attempt to tell you what to do or what not to do with your life. The book doesn’t preach! She just makes you ponder on the immense possibilities which life throws at you. Her casual approach and easy to read writing style ensures that the reader is not bored at any point of time. The book also gives insight into some of the lesser known aspect of these stars. 

The style of writing is really awesome and admirable. Nowhere in any page will you feel bored while reading. It is a light read, yet manages to motivate and inspire and do some thought provoking.

Rating: 4.5 on 5
