    Description

    Connect The Dots, written by Rashmi Bansal, is an interesting compendium of 20 entrepreneurs who made it big without an MBA.

    Summary Of The Book

    Connect the Dots is a collection of inspiring stories that urge the readers to dream big, irrespective of their qualifications. Armed with a desire to prove oneself and a passion for the right cause, anyone can realize their dreams. Beginning with a snippet of the author's life and her unexpected journey, Rashmi Bansal stresses on creating lots of dots on the canvas called life and connecting them right to get a meaningful picture.

    The book is divided in three sections, Jugaad, Junoon and Zubaan. Jugaad narrates the stories of those entrepreneurs who have had no formal training and who have learnt and gained success by observing and experimenting. The tales in the Junoon section are the stories of those driven by their passion and dreams. The last section, Zubaan, reveals the entrepreneurship skills of highly creative minds.

    From Su-kam, Crossword, Dosa Plaza, Reva Cars to Veta, Prince Dance Group and Trikaya Agriculture, the book reveals the untold stories of these popular and successful business enterprises, which thrived because of their drive to succeed. Connect The Dots narrates the stories of lesser known yet highly successful individuals like Abhijit Bansod, Kalyan Varma, Prem Ganapathy, N. Mahadevan, Ranjiv Ramchandani, Suresh Kamath, and Raghu Khanna.

    The book includes stories like To Sir With Love, The Inventor, Food For Thought, Karma Company, Kitabi Keeda, King of Pop, Far from The Madding Crowd, Paper Tiger, Truth Shall Prevail, and Call of the Wild.

    The book employs a colloquial and conversational tone. Since its publication in 2010, Connect The Dots has been a bestseller, and has sold more than 100,000 copies. The book was nominated for The Economist Crossword Popular Award in 2010.

    QUALITY OF PAPER USED IS NOT GOOD.

    Book is inspiring with having some real life examples..
    Of how people from different domains start their work in completely new environment...
    The example of "KALYAN VERMA"
    and many other examples inspire us....


    Apart from the book, THE QUALITY OF PAPER USED FOR PRINTING THIS BOOK IS NOT GOOD.
    THIS BOOK LOOKS LIKE A OLD BOOK FROM ITS PAGES...
    LOW QUALITY OF PAPER.

    Very Motivating

    Being at the brink of completing MTech, I found this book very motivating to think freely in terms of where I want to take my career. The book has covered entrepreneurs from such diverse areas that every chapter is equally interesting and unique!

    I found answers to many questions related to entrepreneurship like how long it usually takes to settle a start-up, how to deal with family and peer pressure, is money always the main motive or businesses can be successful with other bottom-lines as...

    Dots indeed are not connected !

    Though an attempt has been made to turn this book into in inspirational read, but the author has failed to do so. The message the author wants to convey is not interrelated - rather the dots are not connected, but are dispersed.

    A take away meesage has to clearly percolate from each example, and not just a statement. I was disappointed on reading this book as I had expected to to be a motivational book.

    Excellent Book

    Basically, this book's good points could be summarised in the following manner -
    1. Short and sweet
    2. Relevant and does not deviate from the topic.
    3. Gives us an insight after each short story of a successful entrepreneur.
    4. Is simple, easy to understand and inspirational.
    Yeah, thats about it. You could keep going back to the book in case you are feeling down at some point in your life. It is definitely a MANY TIME READ.
