Reading through “Re-engineer Yourself” was similar to revisitingan older concept that I thought I knew so deeply. Reading throughit begins to unveil so many different dimensions unknown to me. Ieagerly, curiously read through the pages while reading betweenthe lines. Jay, bases the analysis on her own experiences in life. It iswritten as a ‘therapy’, a therapy to the author as well as to the reader.The author attempts to challenge the reader by enlightening the truemeaning of being truthful to one’s self. It is a signifcant contribution tothe literature as it inspires the reader by providing different options tochoose to overcome psychological and cultural barriers. The book willbe a friend in need as it shows that the experiences are common amongeveryone, it is not only you, and also provide guidance for relief andhow to overcome problems with confdence. “Re-Engineer Yourself” isspecially recommended for parents and children to read. How importantthe role of a positive family environment to an upbringing of a childis vividly explained in many chapters. The author’s illustration of theimpact of her childhood experiences on her life and how it continuesto make an impact on the childhoods of her own kids is felt so deeplyby the reader. “Re-Engineer Yourself” is the author’s journey of selfrealisation and searching for inner peace and contentment. I trust bywriting this book, Jay has started her journey and invites the readers tojoin her
