'Connect The Dots' is a sequel to 'Stay Hungry Stay Foolish' and is the story of 20 enterprising individuals without an MBA, who started their own ventures. They were driven by the desire to prove themselves, to lead interesting, passionate, meaningful lives.
Some of the entrepreneurs featured in the book are:
Their stories say one thing loud and clear. You don't need a fancy degree or a rich daddy to dream big and make it happen. It's all in your head, your heart, and your hands.
As the last book ‘Stay Hungry Stay Foolish’ created a buzz among the MBAs and many MBA opted out of the placement process from IIMs and other top B-schools. Now this book is expected to generate a curiosity about testing yourself even without doing an MBA. The logic is simple, even the world’s top entrepreneurs and founders are drop-out of school and colleges.
About The Author
An economics graduate from Sophia College, Mumbai and an MBA from IIM Ahmedabad, Rashmi Bansal is a writer, entrepreneur and youth expert. Rashmi is co-founder and editor of JAM (Just Another Magazine), India’s leading youth magazine in print and online. She writes extensively on youth, careers and entrepreneurship and hosts the popular blog: Youth Curry.
This is what she had to say about her new book.
“I enjoyed writing 'Connect the Dots' more than ‘Stay Hungry Stay Foolish’, because the profiles of the people in this book are very different from Stay Hungry Stay Foolish. I met people doing diverse businesses - from making cheese to political market research” said Rashmi. “ I think MBA is overhyped. It's good if you can do one, but equally good if you can't or don't feel inclined to. An MBA is not a requirement to be 'successful' in life, or in business. That's the message I want to convey” said Rashmi. Rashmi is also a Consulting Editor for ‘Cracking Careers’, the careers show on business news channel UTVi. She mentors students and young entrepreneurs in colleges across India.

This is the first time I read a book by Rashmi Bansal as I have not yet read her book Stay Hungry Stay Foolish.
My belief is that an entrepreneur could come out from any profession, so why the author has an over ephasized angst against MBAs in particular.
Almost all the success stories are censored for the setbacks and breathtaking hurdles that the young entrepreneurs might have faced. I am not referering to the part-of-the-game kind of hurdles but those usually faced at the time of inception while breaking the proverbial glass ceiling.
I also strongly feel that all the stories are suggestive of a "one man show" (or woman so to speak). The author should also have covered the unbiased opinion of their close aides without whom the entrepreneur could not have established his/ her dream.
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.
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.
Both the books are easy to read, and quite inspirational too.. a welcome change from the PR-heavy Infosys stories that have been doing their rounds for too long now.. a decade ago, if it was Gita Piramal, we have Rashmi Bansal now. May her tribe increase...
But the book's production quality is a major letdown.. after one read, the pages come unstuck from the paperback cover. Ms. Bansal's autographed work deserves to be treated with greater respect, and is not destined to end up as a wrapper for beachside peanuts or parshad after one read:-)
Publisher, please note this!
I had read this book from reference of my collegue and find it extremely useful and inspiration for start ups of any venture.
The simple and lucid language from Rashmi Bansal make the book very practical and easy to understand the thoughts of every readers and scripts written just touch down to every indivudual.
A Must Read for every Individual whether- enterprenuer Or Job Seeker.
Once again thanks alots to Rashmi for writing this wonderful book and contributing toward the growth of society and nation.
Thanks and regards,
After going through 'Stay Hungry-Stay Foolish', this book has broken the myth that only MBA's can do good business. One thing I found common in all the stories was the eagerness to do something different & common at the same time, with a revolutionary idea, which changed the complete description of the particular business these people are doing. Above all, they inspire.
A must read for anyone and everyone who wishes to get into some sort of business to make a difference.
