The publisher Mr. Hasan said that these unique pocketbooks would help the youth of Bangladesh and the rest of the world to develop core soft skills. He plans to launch nationwide distribution within Bangladesh, including online distribution through rokomari.com, and slowly the book would attract worldwide distribution as well.
The author G. Sumdany Don said the youth of Bangladesh are extremely talented, but we lack core soft skills like communication or public speaking. Therefore his vision is to launch at least 50 pocketbook titles under this series, and would include topics like Emotional Intelligence, Customer Service, Train the Trainer, Leadership, Managing People for the First Time, and so on.
The books have been sponsored by the Edward M Kennedy (EMK) Centre. This series of pocketbooks would be launched in Bangladesh after the Eid in September through a grand launching ceremony at the EMK Center.
