This book is inspired by the life of Chanakya and his book Kautilya's Arthashastra. Some stories here are fictional in nature, but the objective is to increase the interest in students to study the life of Chanakya and also read the Arthashastra.
I would like to also bring to notice that all that is written in this book has been practised by me. I was an ordinary student in school and college. But finally after applying these tips and principles of Chanakya, I turned out to be totally different as a student and as a teacher too. I completed my PhD with a gold medal in the shortest period of time, and there are many students today studying Chanakya and his works under me and I am also guiding them in their PhD research. I would recommend you to read the original Arthashastra containing the 6,000 sutras. There are many books available for you to choose from. My recommended book is Kautilya's Arthashastra by R.P. Kangle. Also, try to read Chanakya Niti written by Chanakya himself. You will get various versions of this book easily available across various bookstores and on the Internet too.
Do watch the various television series on the life of Chanakya as well; there are several of them. My recommended series is Chanakya, acted, produced, and directed by Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi. You can watch the same on YouTube also. Besides, there are over 200 videos of mine available on YouTube on the teachings of Chanakya with modern-day application. You can search on the Internet with the keywords 'Radhakrishnan Pillai and Chanakya'. You can visit the Mumbai University YouTube channel 'Emerging leaders-MA LS: We have over 200 lectures delivered on leadership for the course on MA LS (Masters in Leadership science) based on the Arthashastra.
