"The Big Bad Corporate World
... a tale of betrayal, blind race to the top, and the bitter truth of the corporate world that the show would go on, with or without you"
The Financial Express 10 Apr 2011
‘None is indispensable in the corporate world’. This one-liner is the crux of the Penguin Metro Reads series’ novel “With or without you” by Partha Sarathi Basu......The author has also played well with twists and suspense in the story to keep the reader hooked on till the end. I enjoyed the “corporate stint” with Aarav and his story teaches us a lot of things.

"Corporate guy Partha Sarathi Basu with his debut novel “With Or Without You”
gives a ringside view of the world he is familiar with — of cutthroat
competition, blind ambition and yardsticks of success in the corporate world.
In the novel he wrote across nine months in his spare time and during travel,
the author plucks out dialogues and conversations from everyday life. “I
wanted to use simple language, the one we use daily. I also wanted it to be an
easy read,” says the Gurgaon-based writer. According to him, the idea was to
get those to read, who never had the habit."

From betraying his colleagues to abandoning his wife, the very ambitious protagonist of this fast paced novel will do anything to get to the top of his organisation. In the bargain, the reader gets an absorbingly witty tale that may seem very similar to reality itself."
