In an era booming with the ‘Start-up’ trend and loving this new attitude of breaking boundaries and conventions of a career, one also faces the challenge of being able to partner up with the right people. In lieu of reliable and trustworthy partners, real life couples in relationships have started exploring the idea of partnering up in business too!

Speaking to various couple-preneurs, one realizes that the myth about mixing work and home is just as misty as the one about needing a stable and conventional job for an ambitious career. These dynamic
start-ups break stereotypes and cover a varied range of services: ecommerce, innovative gifts, eco-friendly products, health care solutions, social responsibility ventures, event management, digital
solutions and many others.
SuperCouples brings out such lovely stories of enterprising couples. After all, when great minds come together to produce something built on conjoined dreams, the result is eminently successful.

REVIEW

Super Couple is Non-Fiction/Anthology book contains inspiring stories of Couple Entrepreneurs. This book is sequel of Super Women and inspire us further with many inspiring stories. This book is special not because it covers the “in-love” entrepreneurs but it details out the initiation, inspiration and vision behind these successful entrepreneurs.

Book Title suits the content, as book is all about couple entrepreneurs. Book Cover catches the attention of readers. Blurb is interesting enough for readers to build curiosity about the book.

Language of the book is inviting. Stories are perfectly toned. I read all the stories in one go. Narration is slightly different from other books but in positive way. It hooked me from the first story itself till the last page of the book.

Author has successfully penned down small stories, enough for the readers to know about  personal and professional lives of famous entrepreneurs. The one thing i liked is, it is not only for couples but this book is for everyone irrespective of gender and profession.

The book not only talks about the success stories but also covers the hurdles and obstacles and how they overcame them. It also covers the inspiration behind these famous brands.

Overall this book is for everyone and is surely inspiring and must read for those who wish to become future entrepreneur.
Go for it, you’ll not regret this one.

Review

The Moon in the Sun is a tale in poetry which is set it in a village of Himalayas and which is about Nature, Tiger and a Man.

This book is different from most of the novel coming out these days. The unique way of telling a story in the form of poetry, a book where nature is at the centre of attention and various emotions coming out of lines which rhyme is what sets this book different from most of the books.

Language used in the book is simple and easy to comprehend. The tale is gripping and poetry makes it easy to read, follow and cherish.

Book cover gives hint about the genre and is appropriate with the theme of the book. Title is very long and difficult to remember but goes well with the book.

Except for the title, this book is perfect in every sense.

I would rate this book 4/5 stars.

Altogether, This book is unique and serves us a beautiful book about Nature and poetry.

I would recommend this book to the nature lovers and readers who are looking for something new to read.
