Thanks XO Naveen for rekindling the extra. These thoughtful ordinary situations which can make one extraordinary is an excellent inspiration for most soldiers to put that extra in extraordinary life situations. This illustrative depiction is easy to relate and makes everyone feel that they can give that extra or think extra to make others around feel nice and in the bargain make oneself happy and feel special

On the surface, this book might feel like a quick read, but I found myself pausing at each set of illustrations to ponder on the real underlying message.
