Very Inspiring For Non MBA or non highly educated..

It is very encouraging.. It seems previously Big Business was dominated by only Big Person with MBA or IIT Degree. But these persons proved that Great Entrepreneurs should not have MBA or high education.. They should have an open mind & a big idea and courage to execute them...

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 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

Excellent Book

Basically, this book's good points could be summarised in the following manner -
1. Short and sweet
2. Relevant and does not deviate from the topic.
3. Gives us an insight after each short story of a successful entrepreneur.
4. Is simple, easy to understand and inspirational.
Yeah, thats about it. You could keep going back to the book in case you are feeling down at some point in your life. It is definitely a MANY TIME READ.

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

Not well edited

The stories are decent - some of them are there for the heck of it. You wont be 'inspired'. Also, the book doesnt read well, too many language related errors (it's a big turn off) and then it is written in too casual manner.

Good, but how did it become a bestseller

It is interesting, but frankly it is quite difficult to understand how it has become a national bestseller.
