Product Description

Awaken the Phoenix Bird inside You. Rise in Your Career. Love Your Profession.

** Now available also in Italian, Portuguese and Spanish**

Are you an introvert who feels that your extroverted colleagues are better at marketing themselves and in getting ahead in career while you are the one really slogging hard?

Are you sick and tired of long working hours, office bullies, co-workers who steal your ideas, bosses who practice blatant favouritism or colleagues who backstab you?

Have you recently lost your job and don’t know what should you now do?

Then come to “Quiet Phoenix” where the Amazon #1 Best-selling Author Prasenjeet Kumar shares his own incredible story, of the journey from being a corporate lawyer to becoming a full time author-entrepreneur using his introversion as a strength to overcome all obstacles.

Using everyday office incidents, experiences and politics that anyone (and not just lawyers) can immediately relate to, this book not only inspires but makes you come with your own uniquely actionable plan.

Like the legendary Phoenix bird rising from the ashes, “Quiet Phoenix” sincerely intends to help all introverts or Quiet persons to lift them up literally from the bootstraps.

HASH(0x9ef66d8c) out of 5 stars Being an introvert in any sort of work setting can be difficult because you realize you work in different ways than your extrove July 13 2015
By morgan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was given this book through LibraryThing for an honest review.
Being an introvert in any sort of work setting can be difficult because you realize you work in different ways than your extroverted colleagues and it can feel like those colleagues are favored for being outgoing and your hard work can go overlooked. I liked reading Kumar’s experiences and was able to relate. I also liked a lot of his advice and ways in which he found to be successful in his own experience. My favorite thing about this book though was that it read sort of like a memoir and was very conversational and that it wasn’t just about dealing with introversion in a professional setting but rather realizing that might not be the career choice for you and being ok with that. I loved the end of this book where the author talked about losing his job and deciding what he really wanted to do with his life. I also really liked how he utilized the ebook format and included some links and I found myself highlighting quite a few words of encouragement and advice throughout.

HASH(0x9ef8c5b8) out of 5 stars Great resource for anyone who is an introvert, or works with one. July 2 2014
By jennspoint - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic testimonial of someone who is learning introversion as he explores various career options. I found this to be very enlightening, and empowering. In a very easy-to-read conversational style, the author describes excellent examples of his experience as an introvert negotiating a career in the public sector as well as entrepreneurship. As an American reader, I found it fascinating to learn how many of the experiences I have had as an introvert in these two sectors are universal. The book includes links to valuable resources for both introverts, and anyone wanting to learn more about the introverts in their lives. Great read!
HASH(0x9ec840e4) out of 5 stars MUST READ for all wannabe corporate lawyers—before your firm bans it Aug. 3 2014
By SunGuru - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is an incredibly candid story of what really goes behind those impressive doors of law firms that every aspiring corporate lawyer hopes to get behind, for life.
Prasenjeet Kumar, in this 242 page survival guide of a book, narrates his own personal journey from being a Corporate Lawyer to becoming a Full Time Author in as free and frank a manner as possible. This makes Quiet Phoenix an interesting read for all those Junior Lawyers who have just entered the portals of their dream firm and are puzzled at the needlessly long working hours they are required to put in.
This book also discusses the peculiar problems of introverts in a law firm who feel that their extroverted counterparts are better at selling themselves. From my own corporate experience, I know how true it is when you feel hesitant to blow your own trumpet and then find office bullies stealing your ideas right under your nose. In fact, I suggest that this book should be read even by the top management who too need to introspect as to why they favor “smart salesmen” at the cost of the hardworking, quiet diligent workers, who actually constitute the backbone of all successful organizations.
The biggest takeaway from this touching little book is that it inspires you to take full control of your life whether it is dealing with office colleagues or changing your career.
As one reviewer has already underlined, the characters used in the book are so life-like that they will immediately remind you of someone in your workplace. At least they did that to me and I am sure they will do that to everyone who has ever worked in a corporate atmosphere.
In that background, I’m not surprised that some reviewers from small cities and an obviously non-corporate background have been totally bewildered. One complains that the book confuses between “apprehending” and “comprehending”. I have done a quick check-up and find that the author had used the word “apprehending” probably 3 or 4 times in the context of fearing something. For example:
“I had already apprehended this kind of behavior from Ms. Goof-up Queen…” which is in the context of fearing a backlash from Ms. Goof-up Queen.
As per this reviewer’s suggestion, the author should have used: “I had already comprehended this kind of behavior from Ms. Goof-up Queen…” which, as even a First Year law student can point out, does not make any sense, in the context of back stabbing, that the author is trying to describe. I can only suggest that the reviewer before babbling in a similar vein consult her English School teacher and refresh her lessons!
Some reviewers also need to refrain from writing in a condescending, culturally superior tone when they suggest that the spellings used must only conform  to American English, not British, not Australian, and not of course Indian. Or of suggesting that since the author is based in India (although educated at University College London), he must have translated the book from another language into English.
Or whether law firms have gyms or not, when they obviously don’t know anything about them. Anyone who has been to those swanky offices in Canary Wharf London, or in Bangalore, Hyderabad, Delhi or Mumbai, would find that these offices have not only a gym, but a swimming pool and a multi-cuisine canteen as well.
So guys, ignore all such ignoramuses and just grab this book for the price of a cup of coffee before your firm bans it!

HASH(0x9eb87288) out of 5 stars The Introvert in an Extrovert's World July 26 2014
By gloria piper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While the cover is beautiful, what really caught my attention is that the book targets introverts. Like me. Society seems designed for extroverts, with their need to inter-react, whether at work or at play. It's how they recharge. They are outward looking. The opposite is true of introverts. While introverts may love people, they recharge their energy by being alone and quiet. Consequently they are often misunderstood because they are inward looking.

It's important to understand where you fit in. You can't change your basic nature. And while the world seems focused on the extrovert life style, Kumar points out that the introvert also holds a necessary place in society. The introvert provides focus, attention to detail.

The first few chapters are dry because they are redundant and are best omitted. We run across the same information later in a more powerful form when Kumar tells his story. It is a memoir of his experiences as an introverted corporate lawyer in an office of extroverts and how it changed his life. The incidents and realizations are included there, along with each chapter summary that pinpoints the lessons learned.

If you are an extrovert, this book will help you understand those who need their alone moments. If you are an introvert, you can find your niche in society.

HASH(0x9eec25b8) out of 5 stars Poorly written pamphlet July 28 2014
By Datamouse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Despite the interesting title, this pamphlet (because it does not meet the standard of a book) instead provided an insight into the perils of self-publishing on Kindle. Poorly constructed, awkwardly narrated, rambling discourse with an annoying overtone of self-promotion. Had it been free, it would have been disappointing, but at $3.99 it's ridiculously overpriced.
