‘Who better to come up with a guidebook on training, transformation, motivation and manifestation than Vishwas Nangre Patil—who embodies it all. This book is a cardinal launch pad for youngsters with big dreams who want to make a change in the world they live in.’—R MADHAVAN
In this book, Patil, recipient of the President’s Police Medal for Gallantry for his role in countering the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, talks about his experiences at the police academy and the lessons he has learnt in a career spanning over two decades—from tackling mob violence to managing law and order during large public gatherings, solving serious crimes and implementing the latest technology for better law enforcement.

Author Vishwas Nangre Patil says, ‘Win All Your Battles is about the experiences and experiments during my training period and professional life. The skills, values, and lessons I learnt at the academy shaped my career as a police officer. The discipline and habits that I inculcated in my early twenties enhanced my physical, mental and spiritual fitness in later years.
With conviction, I developed physical and moral courage that helped me in facing man-made disasters and natural calamities. My first book was about my journey as a rural boy getting selected for the Indian Police Service. Win All Your Battles is like its sequel that illustrates the molding and building of my character, my personality. I hope the English readers appreciate my humble efforts just like the Marathi readers did.’
‘Vishwas embodies all qualities of an ideal police officer. This book will act as a beacon of inspiration to the youth of our country.’—AMIT LODHA

In Win All Your Battles, Vishwas Nangre Patil explains this by narrating his journey as an IPS officer, where setbacks, rigorous training, mental toughening, and perseverance are part of his journey. The book is a must-read for all those in need of a quick dose of motivation.’
