“God Save The Dork”, By Sidin Vadukut

This is a sequel to the first Dork book and continues with the adventures of Robin “Einstein” Verghese in consulting business. This book is set in London where our hero has been sent to handle the client account. Once again he ends up proving that he is a complete Dork after all. At the same time he seems to be lucky as well. He does everything that will land him in trouble but in the end manages to still succeed in life and career and eventually ends up earning lots of money as well.

His adventures with British museums are really great. The way he always ends up at wrong time in wrong place and ends up making a mockery of himself. The episode about his bad stomach and going to bathroom in middle of presentation but forgetting to switch off the microphone is really hilarious. In another incidence, he screws up the hotel hair dryer by putting all kinds of eatable stuff to take revenge on them but his own girlfriend ends up using it resulting in a huge disaster for him. How he manages to come out of such situations is really a mystery to me. But the character is completely honest to his diary and that is a wonderful aspect and how we are able to read about his life.

The books also highlights the dark side of business where CEOs are busy making money of their own putting shareholders money at stake and consultants helping them in doing this to earn their own business. I guess there are bad apples everywhere and when you leave too much money and power with people who are essentially dumb and weak and with poor moral values, you are inviting disaster anyway.
