Stay Hungry Stay Foolish, by Rashmi Bansal, is a collection of 25 inspiring stories of 25 graduates from IIM Ahmedabad, who chose to tread the path of entrepreneurship. Their stories have now become sources of inspiration for all the budding entrepreneurs.
Summary of the Book
Stay Hungry Stay Foolish is widely acknowledged as a genuine source of inspiration for every original thinker with big dreams, who aspires to work on the idea of creating their own business venture. The book has sold more than 400,000 copies and has been translated into several other languages since its publication in 2008. It studies the cases of 25 individuals from diverse backgrounds and presents them to readers. These are the people who started their own businesses at the beginning of their careers, after completing their MBA education. Stories behind popular names such as naukari.com and Subhiksha describe what early dreamers like Sanjeev Bikhchandani and R Subramanian achieved. Motivating cases like Makemytrip.com, Mphasis tell the stories of people with a former taste of corporate life, before they became entrepreneurs. Rashmi meticulously writes about some of the informative stories of social friendly projects taken up by IIM PGP graduates, including GiveIndia by Venkat Krishnan. The title has been taken from one of the famous speeches made by Steve Jobs during his commencement address at the Stanford University.

Inspiring stories nicely written....I was curious about this book when I came across this somewhat unconvetional title "Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish". So I decided to pick up a copy and flip through its pages. After going through the first few pages, I knew that this is the book I am going to keep with me for life. It's not because of any sentimental value but beacuse it is so insipiring to read about the young men who took risk in career and got ahead of others.

Inspiring read but only in scope of IIM-ARashmi Banshal, with this book, made an effort to instigate the entrepreneurial drive that had been long concealed under the cobwebs of naive social influences in an individual.

Stay Foolish And You Will Surely Stay HungryI had first heard this quote "Stay Foolish and You Will Surely Stay Hungry" in Happionaire's Cash The Crash. Now when I read this book, I can realize what is means. This book has its pros and cons - while it is excellent to appreciate people who achieve - we need to realize that IIM - A is not the supreme authority. I find it sad that even today in India people rub behind things like IIM.

Very SuperficialThe book was more of a compilation of interviews with top entrepreneurs. It sort of became monotonous beyond a point.

Not worth it.I did not find the book worth my time; could not trudge along after five stories. The writing style is downright boring. Rashmi Bansal has presented "non insightful story" of 25 successful Indian Entrepreneurs. Really sad :(.

promotional brochure of IIM Athis book is precisely that, selling IIM A, looks more like an advert of the institute. the language and writing style are amateurish and boring. i found it not of much use..there are so many pple who are not IIM A graduates but still have carved a name for themselves

Not worth the hypeI bought this heavily marketed book and realised that it is not worth reading cover to cover. I read 4-5 stories and gained nothing insightful which i can attribute to research by the author. These are plain narratives and most of the details that you would expect to read are missing.
