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.

Stories behind popular names such as and Subhiksha describe what early dreamers like Sanjeev Bikhchandani and R Subramanian achieved. Motivating cases like, 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.

Must read if u r planning to set-up a business.

Good Read with a lot of first-hand information from successful Entrepreneurs. All interviewees are IIM hence some risk were non-existent for them which is highlighted in the book, hence do read the sequel: Connecting the Dots in which non-IIMs are interviewed.

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.

The book talks about 25 IIM-A graduates who, at different point of their life, decided to take a plunge into the challenging world of entreprenuership. They risked the

Inspiring read but only in scope of IIM-A

Rashmi 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.

Since one's childhood, the society, namely parents, relatives, teachers, friends etc;, influences on one's thought process thus forbidding him/her taking any risk but aim for a secure job to lead a hassle free life. Though this is the case in every corner of the world, India especially, few of them see the world out of the box and destines to make a change in their life.

This book is about 25 such people, graduated

Stay Foolish And You Will Surely Stay Hungry

I 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.

Mukesh Ambani - was he from IIM?
Dhirubhai Ambani - was he from IIM?
Bharti Mittal - IIM?
Kishore Biyani - IIM?

See my point. Knowledge is for everyone!

Very Superficial

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

@Raj Asthana


I haven't read any of the above books yet, but I have watched/read the speech of Steve Jobs. I felt, yes, this man did commendable job in life, or as some say luck favored him all along (thats apart).

It is *very bad* habit among many Indians to ignore local heroes and praise someone thousands of miles away. Steve Jobs might be great(and now down sick too), but the people in book (hopefully you have read and completed) arent small either. To succeed in a country like India is very difficult. In the west, your talent is nurtured. But here, you are pushed down and condemned for failures.

Stay Hungry but don't be foolish

The review will be distributed in 4 parts:

1.Contents of the book
Going through the contents, you will notice many familiar companies with their not so famous chairpersons. It does not speak about their lives but only a bit about how they started their business, their struggle and their creative minds. And of course all these entrepreneurs are alumnus of IIM A.
The book is divided in 3 parts, The Believers; The Opportunists; The alternate vision. The believers consist of people who knew entrepreneurship w

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 :(.

Stay Foolish Stay Hungry

Inspirational feel-good books are available a-dime-a-dozen.

Yes, I am waiting for a book titled - Stay Foolish Stay Hungry. I want to hear stories of the 1000s of souls who risked it all and failed. There is a lot to learn from the successes of the few that the book will present but I think I will avoid a lot more pitfalls from the failures and learn about quagmires that you cannot escape.

promotional brochure of IIM A

this 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 hype

I 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.

One thing I can say is that the author has found an idea (which can be reused with little tweaks) to easily put together material to publish ane book after another but surely I am not going to buy or read any of them. While this book is about 25 MBAs who turned entreprenuers, "connect the dots" is about 20 entr
