"I read this book with great interest and am inspired a lot. Many business cases that Sandeep has written in the book are close to my experience, and each example had a real feel to it. I thought that this book is a unique book compared to other management strategy books out there. Many of the authors of books on management strategy that are circulating around the world draw conclusions by researching the actual conditions of many companies and comparing them. But in this book, Sandeep translates everything based on his own experience, and as such it is much more applicable and persuasive in the real business field. The examples cited explain the problems that any organization faces. In that sense, I think it is a perfect book for students at business schools and for middle to senior management of companies."

Anyone with the desire to get into business management should get their hands on this book fast – and you don’t need to be a CEO to read this! No matter what stage you are in your career, this book will help you understand the fundamentals of how companies run and how you can help to make it a success. I only wish this gem of a book was available earlier on in my career.”

“When reading this book a quote from Albert Einstein comes instinctively to my mind “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” This is precisely what this engaging book does. It breaks down building and running a business into insightful recipes and nous that makes a very compelling read.”

"Your Company Is Your Castle is a very well written book. The analogy of using the elements of a castle to describe the structure of a company is brilliant. What stands out is the clarity of the theme, excellent story telling and examples across many industries. The personal stories and experiences add to the book's authenticity. The last chapter on leadership beliefs was especially inspiring. I am sure this book will be very well received and benefit many aspiring minds."
