Taken from Steve Jobs' lecture. These entrepreneurs didnt have much idea where they will reach but were consistent and looking back now can connect the dots.

The book takes you through the lives of 20 non-MBA entrepreneurs from varying backgrounds with a few rags to riches stories. The stories of Dosa Plaza,VETA,Oriental cuisines etc are especially exciting as the entrpreneurs started with nothing and had their own ways of dealing with complex situations.
I enjoyed it more than her other book "stay hungry stay foolish". Those MBAs from IIM-A already had a good network and also the "MBA knowledge"...in this book the individuals do not have those advantages ...still they manage - that part is what makes this book more interesti...

Another thing is the language used....usual hindi and hinglish phrases... in the Dosa Plaza story the whole of "Advice to entrepreneurs" is in SouthIndian-Hindi.
Out of Rashmi Bansal's three books - this one is the most interesting.

On connecting the dots...

Here are the dots on the book:
1. Clear presentation
2. Demonstrates that a strong will can overcome most hurdles
3. Inspires confidence
4. Breaks mthys and pessimism that only "lucky", "Already rich" and "crooked ways" bring prosperity.
5. Easy and fun to read - Since the contents are arranged in a series of short chapters.
6. its different from most other books that advice (not that all advice is bad), in the sense that it describes/presents true stories.
7. Read this and refresh your mind with thoughts of possibilities, inspiration, prosperity and energy.

8.CONS of book: This is not a book of facts. It's true stories. For gods sake don't go around trying to find faults. It's like saying, the elephant is great but sadly, does not have wings. So if you want facts and data, do your own research. Books are meant to give you ideas not sit and teach you every thing.

Connect the above dots and decide on going for this book.

Very Motivating

Being at the brink of completing MTech, I found this book very motivating to think freely in terms of where I want to take my career. The book has covered entrepreneurs from such diverse areas that every chapter is equally interesting and unique!

I found answers to many questions related to entrepreneurship like how long it usually takes to settle a start-up, how to deal with family and peer pressure, is money always the main motive or businesses can be successful with other bottom-lines as well, etc.

The language is very lucid, though it is targeting Indian audience and therefore, contains many Hindi phrases (which will lose their essence if translated).

A wonderful read. Thank you, Rashmi Bansal!
