The presentation is creative where she uses the format of interactions which hooks the reader and keeps the interest alive throughout. For someone like me who gets lost in the midst of too many technicalities and jargons, this style of writing works quite well. There is an instant connection from the word go because it feels as if a friend is talking to me about it all rather than an expert bombarding me with loads of information. The author breaks down the complex subject matter into easy to comprehend and coherent sentences. The book is comprehensive as it covers all and sundry, and is succinct as it keeps the detailing limited to how much is necessary and sufficient.
Structured in a lucid manner, the book is divided into two parts. The first focuses on understanding the basics and the second brings to light how GST impacts different industries and day-to-day life situations. Whether you are a salaried employee or own a business, whether you run the household or shop online, whether you are a student or a consumer – this book has something for each one! I also loved the idea of having a section at the end about how the Government is engaging with people. Apart from the fact that it gives you an idea about where one can find relevant information from the Government, it is also assuring and allays concerns.
All in all, I think “GST for the Layman” is a unique, informative, engaging and important read. The book is definitely for keeps!
