Madurai appears keen on growth, going by the increasing sales of self development books at the Madurai book fair. This silent change seems evident at the sixth edition of the fair, organised by the Booksellers and Publishers Association of South India (BAPASI) at Tamukkam grounds here.
From the "How to" books by Dale Carnegie and You Can Win by Shiv Kera that invariably find a place in book expos, collections on self development are ruling the roost. "How to make money in stocks,'' cries the wrapper of a book, while another is titled "How to increase your height." The Chicken Soup series was also a staple in the stalls that sold English titles. There were also books like Lord Hanuman and his art of efficient Management, that attracted curious readers. One could also spot books titled Rajnikant's Punch Thanthiram - Management Mantra and Business Strategy.
