REVIEWS

“Quotations serve as an instrumental source not only to convey targetted content in an articulate manner but also as a source of learning about complex ideas. This book, The CSS Wisdom, perfectly consolidates several important quotations for the ease and benefit of CSS aspirants and would definitely serve as an effective resource for the aspirants adding to the quality of their performance in the exam.” M. Awaid Irshad (1st position, CSS 2017)

 

“A much awaited compendium of credible quotations and excerpts that an aspirant of competitive examination needs and a shortest possible yet most effective way to cover intellectual deficit.” Hamood Ranjha (7th position, CSS 2016)

 

“There has been a long-felt need for a book that could condense some quality scholarly works on diverse and significant topics at a single place. And here comes The CSS Wisdom, edited by Bilal Zahoor. The book contains quotes and excerpts on varied contemporary political, social and economic issues that every reader and CSS/PMS aspirant should go through. Besides, this book will inculcate among readers a critical and analytical approach to understanding the world around them. I highly recommend this book to my students who are preparing for competitive exams, and my friends who want to equip themselves with progressive knowledge.” Ali Imran Rajput (Asst Commissioner, New Karachi, and a CSS Mentor)

 

“In times when most of the guidebooks for CSS aspirants are constipated with stodgy ideas, unfounded arguments and plagiarised knowledge, not to mention the mishandling of English language, Folio Books has taken up the responsibility to hand over, to the seekers of knowledge, the books that can not only be shelved but also ‘chewed’. The CSS Wisdom is an effort to bind together credible progressive views on some of the most significant contemporary topics. This treasure-trove of knowledge is certainly the forerunner of success.” Fatima Batool (Asst Professor FGEIs, and a CSS Mentor)

REVIEWS

“An invaluable volume for the candidates for public service examinations and post graduate degrees. One of the major requirements for success in CSS and other such competitive examinations is clarity on essential concepts related to social sciences and humanities. This book caters to this imperative and hence a must read.” Raza Ahmad Rumi (1st position CSS 1994)

 

“Apart from exploring popular concepts, this book does a phenomenal job in bringing to fore terms and phenomena that are novel to most CSS aspirants. This will become a go-to book for those interested in developing informed opinion.” Prof. Dr. Talat Sohail (Director, Women Institute of Leadership and Learning, Lahore College for Women University)

 

“This book would serve as an instrumental tool for CSS aspirants in their preparation process. Its content as well as its format is enriching for the aspirants bringing the relevant material into one coherent book.” M. Awaid Irshad (1st position CSS 2017)

 

“Intellectually engaging and all- encompassing, this treatise is a one stop destination for curious minds in general and CSS aspirants in particular.” Hassaan Ahsan (22nd position CSS 2016)

DESCRIPTION

One of the biggest challenges a CSS candidate faces is developing a sound knowledge base of the most important sociopolitical and economic debates, multidisciplinary concepts and issues facing the world in general and Pakistan in particular. Overcoming this challenge not only requires thousands of hours of studying books, newspapers, periodicals and journals, but also needs significant financial resources. Even if someone is ready to tread this difficult path, there are not many quality books available in the market for CSS aspirants. In fact, the book shops and online stores are flooded with guide books having plagiarized content, shoddy editing and poor book design. This book has been created to solve this particular problem and has been tailored to the unique needs of CSS applicants. Immense amount of time has been spent in the process that involved complications such as choosing the relevant yet credible books to examine, thoroughly comprehending them and, most important, penning down the kernel of arguments put forth by the authors. Acing CSS contains the analyses of forty-five chosen books in the form of two hundred and seventy takeaways. With the aim to provide the young aspirants with original, authentic and diverse content, the book is inundated with scholarly perspectives on issues that matters to CSS aspirants.
