Think and win like Dhoni is a book on Captain Cool Mahendra Singh Dhoni who is an Indian Cricketer. MS Dhoni is considered as the most successful captain in the history of world cricket with his highest success rate and he is the only captain in the world to bring home all the ICC Trophies.

Well there are a plethora of books out there in the market which talks about chronicles of Dhoni, his life and achievements, in fact there is even a famous biopic on him. But what makes this book stand out is, unlike all the other books it concentrates only on the habits and working style of Dhoni’s mind.

We all would’ve wondered about his last over wins and the unorthodox decisions he makes on the field which always ends up with his team on the winning. How is this possible ? Every achievement of MS Dhoni fascinates everybody, some might even call his achievements as luck but can mere luck alone can take a person to unimaginable heights ? You doubt that right ? That’s what the author Sfurti Sahare had tried to decode in this book.

This book subtly unveil what is it like to live inside Dhoni’s mind and witness how his brain beautifully works even under the most pressurized of situations. And how he makes the right decision at the right place at right time. Dhoni’s leadership and decision making skills are subjects in many management schools and this book is a mini shortcut to know about all of these. The author had spent three whole years studying and researching about Dhoni, the working style of his mind and his success mantra. And as a result Sfurti has handpicked five success mantras of Dhoni which made him whatever he is today and she firmly believes that if one follows these five things devotedly then anyone can become as successful as MS Dhoni in their respective fields. These habits are not complicated they are very easy and simple to follow, all it takes is bit of sincerity and regularity in nurturing one’s mind accordingly.  The author says it is the mind that plays half the game of MS Dhoni’s and his mental strength is key factor for all his success. She also points out if you’re mentally strong there are is no chance in heaven for you to fail.

What makes this book really special is, the author has closely worked with the legend himself in writing this masterpiece. And the years of hard-work she has put into this book has ripened perfectly.
