    Taken from Steve Jobs' lecture. These entrepreneurs didnt have much idea where they will reach but were consistent and looking back now can connect the dots.

    The book takes you through the lives of 20 non-MBA entrepreneurs from varying backgrounds with a few rags to riches stories. The stories of Dosa Plaza,VETA,Oriental cuisines etc are especially exciting as the entrpreneurs started with nothing and had their own ways of dealing with complex situations.
    I enjoyed it more than her other book "stay hungry stay foolish". Those MBAs from IIM-A already had a good network and also the "MBA knowledge"...in this book the individuals do not have those ad...

    On connecting the dots...

    Here are the dots on the book:
    1. Clear presentation
    2. Demonstrates that a strong will can overcome most hurdles
    3. Inspires confidence
    4. Breaks mthys and pessimism that only "lucky", "Already rich" and "crooked ways" bring prosperity.
    5. Easy and fun to read - Since the contents are arranged in a series of short chapters.
    6. its different from most other books that advice (not that all advice is bad), in the sense that it describes/presents true stories.
    7. Read this and refresh your mind ...

    Not well edited

    The stories are decent - some of them are there for the heck of it. You wont be 'inspired'. Also, the book doesnt read well, too many language related errors (it's a big turn off) and then it is written in too casual manner.

    Good, but how did it become a bestseller

    It is interesting, but frankly it is quite difficult to understand how it has become a national bestseller.
