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.

Not well editedThe 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.
