Second chance by Dr Sandeep jatwa (book review)

I got a rare opportunity to do a review of the book titled second chance, written by the prolific writer Dr Sandeep jatwa. You can check him out on his website here

I reached out to him and his response was amazing. He actually sent me a copy of this book and I am really grateful for that.
I personally love this book because it resonates with me for two reasons. First as a Christian it reminds me of the scripture in Hebrew 9:27  that says it is appointed for man once to die but after that judgement. Secondly, After having a near death experience myself,  I can say that the life I live now is a second chance. But how well am I utilizing it? That’s the question this book seeks to bring to the fore.

The book second chance revolves around the life of a man Shekhar Kapoor, a man who was born with a sliver spoon, a billionaire actually, and as a result has no regard for people around him, things and life in general. The protagonist in the book is shown to be rude and full of negativity, let’s call him your average rich, spoilt douchebag.

Despite several warnings, including a cryptic call to get him to change his ways he remains adamant.
Finally,  the protagonist dies and is face to face with the bookkeeper who shows him his good and bad deeds after which he is convicted and made to face various punishments, however, Shekhar Kapoor somehow gets a second chance, how will he utilize this second chance?
Do you think this experience will make Shekhar Kapoor really change his ways?
You will have to read the book to find out.

My take on the book
What I love the most about this book is that it serves as a clarion call for us all, it teaches a valuable lesson which I think is really needed at this point in time. In a world where people pay more attention to money and fame and less time is given to doing good deeds. This book comes in handy, to remind us all of what is truly important.
The author used the life of the protagonist in the story to pass a very valuable message, one that I think everyone needs to hear.

Please endeavor to read this book it will really inspire you to utilize every opportunity you have to do the right thing.  we have just one life to live and we need to make the most of it, not everyone will be fortunate to get a second chance at life, and even if you are lucky to have gotten a second chance at life how well are you using it?

Overall a perfect read
Great writing skills and
Nice interlinking of characters.

  1. This books seems inspiring and interesting, though seems like a common story – but I will search and read it myself. I am sure the writer has a different style of delivery. Thanks for sharing

  2. It's always advisable to read books like this just to put us back on track and also reminds us of the life after. Just like you i had a near death experience myself, was in coma for 3 days but as God may have i got a second chance.. Would love to read this book.

  3. Life is short. It would be so wonderful if each of us could leave behind a beautiful lasting imprint that would make the world a brighter place for everyone. Just one good deed every day will go a long way. Pay it forward!

  4. When people realizes that life is short and they won't be taking any of their achievements with them when they leave this life, things will start getting better and love will be every where. Having a second chance is a blessing but we all are not so lucky to experience it.

  5. Sounds like an interesting book for sure. Deep down, everyone knows that we only live once, but we act in some ways as if we are going to live forever, ignoring death and everything. So we don't do what we should do. Sounds like this book made you think, which is always a good thing.

  6. This seems like a great book. Your review is very in-depth and it reminds me that the Lord always give us second chances, and that he will give us challenges to shape us for his glory. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Oh I do believe in second chances. Everyone deserves it, but if he/she fails to prove her worth, I am not giving any more chances. The book sounds an interesting read while having coffee. I am sure it will give readers a lot of realizations in life.
