Very inspirational book for entrepreneurial aspirants & small business owners. This book wont give you any ideas on running a business but history of successful people who came over their obstacles in their business life. That tells us something like a mythological story which is a form of guidance material from 25 individuals who are in their epitome of success.
Stay Hungry Stay foolish!!!
A mixture of miscellaneous collection of true stories which is filled up with desire, dare!!
One who is willing to make a unique movie must read this...
Motivational but does not create much interest and curiosity while reading.
If I compared it to other these kinds of books, the author has used a bit tough words unnecessarily.
Firstly I liked the format of the book. Its more like a collection of short stories, only that all stories are real! It therefore makes a light read, you can finish a chapter in those small commutes or breaks.
Each chapter is a narration of the journey of one IIMA grad. The difficulties they faced, their inspirations, the decisions they took and why and finally some suggestions. Reading through it, you get to reflect on various topics. The experience unwound and laid in front of you helps see the larger picture and you can use it to make your life better by understanding the little everyday things.
A truly thought provoking read, where each chapter is a journey into unchartered territories and at the end of each you emerge feeling the same jubilations and melancholy as the interviewee.
Got this audio book from flipkart.
This just appreciates 25 grads of IIM who have tasted great success in corporate life.
The take-away is "You can also do it".
Not for someone who is hungry for new ideas.
Its a must book for those who have little entrepreneurial gene or interested in how people have struggled to establish themselves. The book doesn't have a high/low sine curve in terms of excitement. It covered a wide range of business and most of them are well known brands never knew those are IIMA grads creation.
I saw some reviews asking why only IIMA and hinting at Ambani? But dear reviewer, its book published by CIIE, which is an IIMA initiative. And the objective of book is specific. It never said those 25 are only contender of so called business man. There could be 25 mn, but that no way belittle the work done by Rashmi.
the book is based on interviews on successful iim ahmedabad entrepreneurs who chose to write their own script.....the author writing style is exceptional and gives valuable insights into to world of entrepreneurship..........THE book to pick up for aspiring entrepreneurs......
This book is just very very nice and enspiring. It fills you with a lot of energy and dreams and also encourages one. Very very nice book and i personally recommend everyone to read it.
Simply very nice.
You may find the book boring at certain points. Few stories are not really great. I'm not trying to blame the author. I understand that the reality cannot be interesting always, but those stories could have been easily removed: you find it difficult to connect with them. Even if the book had only 15 stories, I would've bought it!
And, those 15 are really good. Each having something which is worth noting for a budding entrepreneur.
Other than a few mis-spelt words and few boring stories, the book is great!
Nice piece to read but it's not any motivational stuff, just a blog kind where writer has written stories of some heroes of India. I liked the concept of writing a book in interview format but including only IIM guys is something I didn't like, many successful entrepreneur are either college dropout or never went college.
