MY REVIEW: I received a review copy of Fluid from the author in exchange for an honest review.
The book begins on an interesting note with a few incidents based on different characters. The author uses these characters as an example to demonstrate how they are not ‘fluid’. He then goes on to explain his concept of being fluid.
The author has obviously extensively researched his facts before presenting them in the book. I was amazed to learn so many little known facts about various famous and historical personalities that have been narrated in the book.
So what is being fluid all about? Of course, the reader needs to read the book to find that out but if I am interpreting what the author means to say correctly, being fluid is all about not slotting oneself in a single category, but being multi vocational and knowledgeable in different fields.
There are many insights by the author about the rigidity of the educational system, in particular the divide between science and art.
The book and the concept put forward by the author is extremely interesting and thought provoking. I believe that everyone will definitely benefit from reading this book.
