A brilliant read.

Because shit happened ??? the fourth book of the bestselling author of 3 romantic novels came as a great surprise to me. The author has completely drifted from his regular genre of writing romantic, humorous books. This book is based on his real life and gives an insight into the big entrepreneurial world full of challenges. It portrays the author???s passion to pursue his dreams as he could have easily took up a job but he instead chose to start his own company.

I being a novice about this entrepreneurial world got a clear view of it from the book. The book is an inspiring read whether you are an entrepreneur or not.
All the best to the author!

It's different

'What not to do in a start up...'
Many books have been written which tell the success stories of their writers but this one is a story of failure. With this book, Harsh Snehanshu comes out of the league of writers selling their books on the road side.
I'll justify, why I rated this book 4 on 5:
Star 1: For the unique theme and the unique style of writing. It's humerous and serious at the same time.
Star 2: For the continuity maintained throughout. Every step, which a start up takes, is explained. No skipping, no exaggeration.
Star 3: For the way things like greed and lust for power are desc...

Star 3: For the way things like greed and lust for power are described.
Star 4: For inspiring me.

Why 4/5 and not 5/5?
Well, many won't agree to this point because it all depends on one's taste and the state of mind while one reads something.
Since Harsh knows that people liked his style of writing in Kanav-Tanya trilogy, he has forced in some elements of a typical fictitious love story into it. The things, in this case, might be true but he could have avoided the overuse of sex and drama (including shoulder massage) in a book like this.

Worth reading.
Waiting for 'Route to Roots'.

Avoidable.... with a capital A!

i bought this book after reading the reviews on flipkart.. hence my expectations were sky high.

After reading the painfully etched protagonist's story, i felt so cheated about my time wasted.

The story is good.. but stretched like a used rubber band... the book jacket claims that it will tell u "what not to to do in a entrepreneurial start up".. after reading, u will realise u dont have to read such books to set a insight..

Also, the business model is not that viable to begin with..

A definite page-turner

"Because shit happened" - As I was wandering around the Mumbai airport earlier this month, waiting impatiently for my delayed flight, I somehow managed to bump into this title. Why I picked it up - maybe it was the ever- budding entrepreneur in me, or just the avid book shop surfer, or was just another pseudo-satisfied and over worked consulting professional looking for a little bit of humour. But whichever alter-ego it might have been, I just knew that I had to read through it.

"Because shit happened" - As I was wandering around the Mumbai airport earlier this month, waiting impatiently for my delayed flight, I somehow managed to bump into this title. Why I picked it up - maybe it was the ever- budding entrepreneur in me, or just the avid book shop surfer, or was just another pseudo-satisfied and over worked consulting professional looking for a little bit of humour. But whichever alter-ego it might have been, I just knew that I had to read through it.

Right from the first page, the writer managed to take me through a very different kind of journey - the one that many of us probably long to go on. In a flash I was teleported back in time, as I made my way through a long forgotten, yet familiar education system and the ever welcoming streets of Delhi. And so was I caught up that I was almost cursing the boarding announcement as I was required to put the book away for a while.

Another 15 minutes and a bottle of water later I was uncomfortably stuffed in the cattle class of the plane, trying to find some comfort in the book. I wasn't let down even a bit as I was introduced to this emotionally driven, passionate individual chasing his dream. A dream shared by many of our fellow youth, but seldom pursued religiously. In a time when everyone was busy sacrificing her/his entrepreneurial dreams, there was this guy who was trying to gather utmost courage and support to create something he really believed in. In a time when 95% of new ventures are shelved in less than years??? time, he was toiling around his set of morals, priorities, relationships and his need of recognition, just to make his dream a reality. And boy, did he succeed in that and how.

The author has managed to brew together a distinct flavour - comprising of dreams, passion, trade-offs, failures, relationships, breakups & eventually come-backs. And after 3 very short hours of cruising, there I was - full of awe, appreciation and certainly a little apprehension. I ended the book with many questions - regarding the choices made by the characters, and quite a few answers - to those "what if" questions, that have kept me from pursuing many of my passions.

The book is quite a page turner and I would recommend it to anyone who has ever dared to dream and has shown courage to never let go of it. It is one of the best works I have read in a while and I would like to wish Harsh Snehanshu, the very best, for his next many books to come.

Worth every penny, and actually much more - must read for any "Student Entrepreneur" and actually everyone else :)

This is my first book by Harsh, and I must say that he nailed it. I got it on my birthday, and I couldn't put the book until I had finished it which was by 7 am in the morning or so.

The book is more than just an accurate description of the kind of things that happen in an Entrepreneur's life when he is in college, yet to know how professional World work, and thus unknowingly is caught in the web of personal vs. professional connections. Despite the seriousness, and loads of messages the book is spicy enough to give you goosebumps.

Despite the seriousness, and loads of messages the book is spicy enough to give you goosebumps.

If you have ever aspired to be an Entrepreneur or you are one, I am sure you would love it. Besides the learning, you would be able to relate seamlessly at so many points. While at some points you would want to be in author's place for all the fame and respect, and at others you would simply want to sympathize with him.

To summarize - the book is a must read, whether or not you an entrepreneur. The book isn't a work of fiction, which makes it even more interesting.

Touching and inspiring

This book describes the story of a young and passionate entrepreneur, who despite all odds wanted to chase his passion but is betrayed by the people he trusts. But he has the guts to go back to the same path. The climax with the parents was too good to describe. (View complete review)

Read half of the book. Its a story of a person who gave up a good job for his vision. Good detailed explanation but nothing that keeps you on the edge of the seat.. (if you know what i mean) (View complete review)
