D., and Eshwar Vikas among several others to encourage budding entrepreneurs in their pursuits.

Dreams do not like to wait too long

These stories tell us that ‘a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. But the road is slippery and wet. You don’t have the right shoes. You don’t have Google Maps. Yet, you must put that foot forward.’ The book is a peep into the way ten young entrepreneurs stepped out from having mere dreams and tried to ink in the real world all their assumptions of a great business. Yes, they are the sorts who have these catalysing start-up urges even as they are in college and then they do ...

arise awake and sleep after reading this book

well !!! you open the book with much enthusiasm to get motivated and inspired since the cover of the book says so but then as you keep on reading you get a feeling of monotony in all the stories. I mean i agree the book's aim is to educate and inspire you about entrepreneurship, but i suppose a few stories are enough to make u familiar with the subject. There is nothing extraordinary in these stories. Every entrepreneur goes through the same cycle of struggle and persistence which help him su...

Great Handbook for Young Entrepreneurs

Like the 10 teams mentioned in the book, many of us wanted to do things on our own but were hindered by constraints like finance, security, family and our protective social structure. They did what probably most of us couldn't.
This book is a lovely anthology of such success stories, interspersed with failures too. Each story here teaches something new and motivates to innovate new ideas for business in the vast country we live.
Loved the conglomerate of ideas and would recommend this one t...

Very inspiring book with simple yet motivating stories

I rarely read non-fiction but this one caught my attention with the title. I wanted to know about these 10 people who had the guts to chuck lucrative jobs and do something of their own. It is exceptionally commendable in India where a secured job is what all parents want for their kids.
All the stories are awe-inspiring and Rashmi Bansal has categorised them very well into Rankers, Repeaters and Rebels With A Cause. Each story is well crafted and illustrates how these young people began, fai...

An amazing , awe-inspiring read!

This book is surely a huge dose of inspiration when it comes to youngsters who dream about making it big. Amazingly written through some easy to connect real life stories of people who not only dared to dream but also make them come true is what makes this book endearing.

As always the most interesting thing about all the books of this author is her lucid, easy going story telling not making it boring with too many details but rather make it interesting with anecdotes that not only make you ...
