Sabyasachi, the author of "What's Your Plan B", distances himself from the self-help herd by establishing his book not as an universal recipe, but rather as a companion for everyday actions and decisions. He has no ambition to lecture you on what makes a good professional as much as provide you with real-life examples of how others, including the author himself, have navigated adversity and anxiety without losing sight of their individual targets, whatever those may be. Though I believe the author hadn't planned his book to take on a Covid-19 theme, one can't help but see in his hands-on approach important lessons to struggle through a pandemic that has put on hold so many of our plans. Most of us could use a bit more resilience - and a Plan B - so we don't lose focus on what gives meaning to our lives."

"This book is a very useful guide of how to not only survive but thrive when adversity strikes. The examples make the reading vivid and the notions really comprehensible, while the tips make the guidance really applicable. My key takeaway: All we need is to not be taken by surprise. That means to look intentionally for the red flags of individual adversity and be ready like scouts for universal black swans."

Saby gave a 3-day training to my company over Sales Pitch. Everyone was impressed on the way he managed to make an impact, we caught ourselves “correcting” each other based on the comments Saby made during the training from the very first day. He managed to provide a high level training using intelligent stories taken from daily activities and keep our attention the whole time. During the training, everyone had the opportunity to practice and realize what the strong points are and what needs to be improved and most important how to improve. Saby is a talented speaker who love what he does and we are grateful we took the opportunity to leverage from him "

SPEAKER, Author, INNOVATOR & INFLUENCER
“This book is my biggest passion project to date. The topic really moved me. First I wanted to do a speech, then a blog, and finally I realised it called for a book. This has been a very interesting 2 years journey, from interviewing 25 erudite professionals and leaders, to working with some brilliant and creative minds to actually having a Plan B style launch via zoom. It has been a tremendous journey.”
