In 20 simple and easy steps, the author tells us all that we need to know before starting a business. The book answers all possible questions in these 20 steps. Why do you want to become an entrepreneur? Where do you get your ideas from? How to raise money? How to make your business plan? How to choose your co-founders? How to use the social media for your benefit? What is the need for a mentor, and where to find one? How to hire a good team? The book gives the answers to these questions and helps readers who are about to start a business.

    At the end of each chapter, the author has also given ‘Takeaways’ or tips, which are also very helpful. The book has been written by the author on the basis of her experiences as a teacher, and as a mentor to many budding entrepreneurs. The language she has used is conversational and simple. Most of the concepts have been explained with the help of examples, and hence are easier to understand.

    good book, good delivery from flipkart too.

    Very good book with lots of input being made. It is a easy going book which encourages not only entrepreneurship but also increases your reading habit. A fairly simple book with lot of enthusiastic step by step procedure. But needs some serious study & motivation to be taken up.
    A good packing and dispatch from flipkart too.

    May your tribe increase!

    Had it not been for your book, I would not have known there existed somebody who can dissect entrepreneurship in such easy & detailed way.
    Thanks a Ton for writing such small, lucid yet elaborate book.
    However I also am clear that becoming an entrepreneur by reading a book is like learning to swim through text book.
    I better take a coach & pool. I have just gone through first 6 chapters upto getting the right Co-founders & already made up my mind to become a mentee of yours.

    A must have for every aspiring Entrepreneur!

    It’s a pleasure for me to share this little gem for Indian entrepreneurs with you. A lot of the observations below have been in retrospect and after reading the book I couldn’t help but wish that I had it when we were starting out! While we found this gyaan the hard way, which has its importance, we certainly won’t have minded a little heads up!

    Before sharing my comments I would like to set the expectations right. The earlier you are in your entrepreneurial pursuit (including aspiring entr...

    An Excellant Guide for Start Up Entrepreneurs

    I read this book and even though I am already an existing entrepreneur and I found a number of points that I could use. I wish I had a book such as this when I started my company. I see a number of friends quitting their jobs to start off their own business in today's environment.
    One point that really struck a chord was where the author says that if you are going to become an entrepreneur to avoid having a boss, be prepared that once you start off on your own, everyone is your boss, because...

    A must read for aspiring entrepreneurs

    I must tell you that I am reading your Entrepredia very carefully, savouring it slowly and taking notes. You have written a wonderful book, which answers so many questions, and so simply. However,
    parts of what you have said make me feel jittery, because I do realise I am underprepared and underequipped at many levels...

    Today, I took time to reflect on your words about how a great team can build a great product, but a flaky team can kill a brilliant product. I am trying to figure out how to...

    Typos, abrupt ending, missing information

    At many places you can find typos which can be ignored but abrupt endings and stale stroies like Walmart salesman become undigestable. Story about howling dog starts well but ends at no where. End could have been better. If a person solves a problem regarding job website, at least the website name should have been given. The book talks about CARMaSutra a six month course on entrepreneuship but it was difficult to find that on web and the site does not tell how to enroll.
    Finally you may land...

    Nice marketing skill

    Buy this book if you don't know the meaning of word "entrepreneur " and don't have "common sense " about business .
    This book only give you overview of entrepreneurship .

    The author has taken this book as a media for marketing of her venture "CARMa".

    Misleading Book Title. Correct title should be "Entrepreneurship for Dummies"

    Useless book if you are into business from more than a year. Specially the title is completely misleading, it delivers a lip-service only. I finished the book in 1 hour and i still feel i wasted my 45 mins from that hour. I asked for returning as an special case because it was useless book but as expected, you can't return until it is torn or damaged. So can't blaim flipkart.

    Yes, but if you are yet to start your journey, you would love reading. but i suspect the practical implication.

    Tried well but not complete guide for entreprenuer

    Basic information provided is good about what to do when.
    More examples were expected in many chapters.
    Some links given in the book are deleted like that of Marco D'souza blog.
    Could have been better.
    But if any improved version comes i will be eager to read it.
