Yes Ace by Amarnath Pallath is a superb book because it contains an ocean-like wisdom and experience from the author’s life. The author hails from the engineering backdrop, however he worked at various lengths, so the knowledge and interaction he holds within his realm is gigantic. The book is a work of non-fiction but invariably it sheds a great amount of knowledge for its readers that make them rich with the value of life and essence of time they are having on this planet.
Talking about the book, foremost it’s an easy read. There are 30 essays…but a close look reveals that the book is far transcendental than just the essays. The author, in fact, shared shreds of memories and experiences from his life, the people he met and worked with or came across while traversing through a journey called LIFE.
Every chapter has a name and reverberates well with the inside content. The way he explores circumstances and puts the special memories in the lane of time, it is just a matter of time how soon you get soften by this senior writer from South India. While narrating tales from his and others life, he also shared valuable tips and strategies for the younger and current generation. In a nutshell, while reading the book, you are likely to feel that the author is everything: well-read and well-travelled and well-worked.
The first chapter/essay ‘Sea Shells’ reminds us the last stage of our life, how we feel futile yet exist. This one is philosophical but purely truth, it subtly hints about death – like shells we too shall find our shorelines.
The book is abundant with classic cult references from great figures. It is the supreme skill of the author that he blends everything so smoothly that you may never get a pinch of boredom in your reading experience.
Unarguably the book binds you with its positive and hopeful approach. The stories from Egypt and Kerala’s fishing man were simply superb and nudge us for cogitation that we may miss in the heat of the rat race.
This book is beyond any summary or one review, the more profoundly you read, it’s likely that you will fall in love with its content and the author. In fact, the author should share more from his life for the people of the world. A highly recommended book for all types of readers.
