      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      'In Stock'

      Products‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      'Back In Stock Soon'

      The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

      'Out of Print'

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description

    From Aditya Magal, the writer behind the famous blog ‘The Secret Journal of Rakesh Jhunjhunwala’ which is based on the billionaire stockbroker’s life, comes a hilarious satire on success entitled How to become a billionaire by selling nothing.

    Summary of the Book

    An eccentric entrepreneur's dreams of success are stepped on when a billionaire stock investor with a dragon-sized ego he approaches for funding shoos him away with a meager 1 Lakh, advising him to consult a psychiatrist. The entrepreneur takes the money to hit back on the billionaire by manufacturing the most innovative product possible: NOTHING! He pays the billionaire back by assigning him a stake in the company for his help. The entrepreneur's marketing skills help land investments by the hundreds, even from the deep-pockets of Indian politicians. The billionaire is vexed with his stake, one that he has unexpectedly picked up. Its value increases every day, and attracts the attention of some of the richest men in the world. However, this ride to success is cut short as another company claims that the entrepreneur has infringed on their ideas. In this spoof on success, the writer spares no one, and his writing captures the humour and absurdity of India

    Sold this Book for Nothing

    This reveiw is only for sane and ecletic readers, the book is written mostly sitting on the commode and filled with loads and loads of crap. The author is going all out on Twitter to promote his book by appending each one of his tweets with the number of books sold so far. "3 cheers" Mr. author, you are successful in buying out people.
    While you think or read through the sattire there is nothing humorous and one can draw a significant comparison with Sajid Khan's shitty movie dialogues. Over...

    It's a fun read

    I picked up this book while casually going through new releases on flipkart...the topic interested me and so was the character "Jhunjhunwala". This is a hilarious read as the author takes a dig at everything right from selling useless products with 99 price ending strategies, political and economic situation, celebrities, media houses etc. The main character heavily borrows traits from the legendary investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala who is a larger than life guy extremely rich and AWESOME. The fun...

    As I know him. Mr. awesble.

    I've known Aditya on twitter and this guy is insanely funny. Awesome + humble = Awesble. That's what I know him as.

    The day I came to know he's written a book I first prepared for a stomach ache because I knew it would be funny beyond wits. And guess what IT IS! Also he has mentioned himself as a beer connoisseur but let me tell you his beer drinking skills have been picked up from me!

    Nonetheless, if you have a dull day or are going through a rough phase just read this book at the end of ...

    Brilliant Read

    Having an imagination is 1 thing, but to make you believe in that imagination as if it was reality is quite another.
    Aditya Magal does a splendid effort in his first book. One of the funniest men on twitter and now one funny author.
    Hope to read more of his work in the future.
    THIS IS A MUST READ

    A Wicked, Crazy Read!

    This is a totally frank review of the debut novel from Aditya Magal, the man behind the delightfully crazy and wicked Rakesh Jhunjhunjwala blog. If you are expecting some high-grade literature, then this book is not for you. Written in true blog style and peppered with hyperbolic craziness, this book is actually a sarcastic statement on the melting pot of paradoxes that is India. There are not-so subtle references to the blind consumer culture, marketing gimmicks, the daftness of the media (c...

    NOTHING is in the Book !!!!!!!!

    First of all I thought the book is about Rakesh Jhunjhunwala and about his Investing Strategy but after reading the book I regretted for wasting my precious time on this silly book. One of the worst book I have ever read. There is no option for giving Zero rating..
