On a good day, The Smart Manager receives at least five books for review from some
of the world’s most well-known publishers. While we try to cover
as many of them as possible in the magazine, we have often felt that we can do more
with them. They can provoke so much more conversation, for instance, but for that
to happen they need to be put ‘out there’.
Smart Books is thus an attempt to rescue the humble ‘review copy’ from our cluttered
desks and give them a little more space to breathe—out here. When this section goes
fully live, which will admittedly take some time, you will find contests, reviews,
previews, extracts, links to author websites and a spiffy little corner to buy books
recommended by us. We have already put some of these in place and will keep you
updated as and when more stuff comes online. Till then, let us know what you are
reading, and if we like it, we might invite you to review it on The Smart Manager
and send you complimentary copies! Write to email@example.com to know more.
