In April 2006 Robin Einstein Varghese, a stupendously naïve but academically gifted young man (he was ranked 41st in his class), graduates from one of India s best business schools with a Day-Zero job at the Mumbai office of Dufresne Partners, a mediocre mid-market management consulting firm largely run by complete morons. Varghese finds that he fits into the culture remarkably well. Or does he? Through a stunning series of blunders, mishaps and inadvertent errors, Robin begins to make his superiors rue the day they were driven by desperation into hiring him. With things going spectacularly wrong in his professional and personal life, will Robin manage to achieve his short-term goal of being promoted to Associate in under a year? Will love conquer all and will Gouri walk with him through Dadar Department Stores with her hand in the rear pocket of his jeans? Dork: The Incredible Adventures of Robin Einstein Varghese is for all of those who ve ever sat depressed in cubicles...and wanted to kill themselves with office stationery. Especially that letter opener thing.

Dork: The Inrcredible Adventures Of Robin Review
Dork - A Stupendously Fantastic Read
By Anmol Gupta
Dork is an awesome read and I have got a couple of my friends to read it. I almost feel like a savior, for the book is simply not worth a miss. Dork narrates the story of Robin Verghese an academically gifted young graduate who begins work at the Mumbai office of Dufresne Partners. It is a mediocre consulting firm run by morons.
The book traverses the young brilliant guys’ stint at the company and how he ‘fits’ in that mediocre place. This book is a must read for all those who try and find ways to amuse themselves at the work place and for those, who cannot bear to sit in their cubicles and have more often than once, tried to end their life with the office stationery. Yes! The book is as hilarious as it can get and is simply worth the read. I highly recommend this book.
Not up to expectation
By Arpit Sikka
Regular readers of whatay(Sidins blog) are bound to agree that the book failed the expectations out of this whizkid. Pretty much like one of these IIT passout books. Not too much beginners luck for you Sidin. We expect more out of the second one.
