'Musings of A Corporate Voyeur' by Sriram Iyer is a collection of 11 short stories where the setting of the corporate workplace is used to weave together the lives, aspirations, egos and insecurities of people struggling to climb the corporate ladder.

The book provides a rare insight into the corporate world which has undergone dramatic changes post the advent of the private sector and MNCs.

The dynamics of these interactions provides a perspective that is both farcical and irreverent while being perfectly plausible.

From the use of a survey to address morale, to the quirks of leaders in startups, to the propensity of colleagues to gossip, Iyer keeps the readers engaged in a journey that will resonate with their own experiences at work.

The book takes a look at life in such an Indian workplace.

First-time author Sriram Iyer is a finance professional with over 20 years of experience in large multinationals in different parts of the world.

"I have spent most of my time in the last 20 years in the corporate workspace.

So, all the stories comes from my experiences and observations," says Sriram.

The themes of his book are similar to the Dork series and columns by blogger Sidin Vadukut, though the author claims that his books were not really inspired by any particular author.

The book is part autobiographical and part fiction.The preface for the book is written by none other than reknowed journalist, media and televison personality Pritish Nandy. The book launch was recently held at the Reliance TimeOut outlet in Cunningham Road
