    Jaikishan Patel goes from being a simple Gujarati man to the Dubai-based Jack Patel. His life seems like a dream come true until the harsh reality of recession hits him, and he is forced to see his world fall apart right in front of his eyes.

    Summary of the Book

    Jaikishan Patel belongs to a simple Gujarati family, but this does not stop him from pursuing his not-so-simple dreams. He is all set to embrace the world of investment and private banking. Jaikishan soon transforms into the famous Jack Patel from Dubai. He is known as the extremely successful financial advisor in an American brokerage house. He lives a splendid life and experiences success that people only dream of: he cracks a million-dollar revenue target, receives an indecent proposal from a client’s wife, and is desperately trying to learn the Bollywood items songs in order to impress the woman he has romantic feelings for. Just when everything seems to be going great for him, disaster strikes in the form of the recession that hits the world economy. Suddenly, he is witness to his hard-earned success crashing in front of him, and there is not much he can do about it. Will things get back to the way they were, and will he lose the love of his life?

    Refreshingly different

    I bought this book on an impulse. Loved it. Very different in many ways but very enjoyable nevertheless. Nice flow and many funny incidents. Found 2 errors which one does not expect in a penguin book, also the font should have been bigger for an easier read.

    such a fun book - breezy and gripping at the same time

    A great book - There's not just a smile, but also a giggle on every page!

    The book is narrated by the protagonist, Jack Patel, who seems to be a funny, sarcastic, ambitious, entirely like-able chap which just makes the book such an easy read. There are so many light hearted moments throughout the book when you completely relate with certain characters and want to scream out "THATS SO LIKE ME!!" The author has accurately portrayed those awkward moments you can only have when you're alone (i...

    Jack Patel's Dubai Dreams- A Juicy page turner indeed

    The author grips your attention right at the beginning and twists and twirls it to a thrilling end.
    The protagonist lives a life of 'feathers and thorns' which is so much like our real lives. Thus the books make an exciting read for anyone, whether a “Banger” or not!!

    A thoroughly entertaining roller coaster ride on the bulls and the bears!

    Jack Patel's Dubai Dreams is a perfect recipe for a Bollywood movie.
    P.G. Bhaskar takes you on a roller coaster ride, into the World of Finance, with its delights and frights, the credible and incredible twists and turns and up mounts of serious sense and down to plain nonsense. An enjoyable blend of humour and romance, balances the gravity of the real world making the book a thorough entertainer and a must read.
    The author's descriptive style of writing has the potential to bring alive the ...

    All that glitters is not GOLD !

    The book promised a lot on the cover.. even the reviews on flipkart was a motivating factor to pick this book..however, it was a let down.. the style of writing and printing of book makes it slightly cumbersome to read..

    Jack patel's character is very much in sync with reality.. the way the protagonist narrates his happenings is interesting..
    Too much other data crammed in made it tad boring @ times..

    If anyone loves such light hearted books, i recommend, romance with chaos is a good pick.

    Thoroughly entertaining

    Book is well entertaining and sheds light on the world of investment banking. Also covers office politics.

    Book stayed focused on the core topic, without too much deviation because of love stories or other secondary tracks.

    Planning to read the sequel next

    A Must Read - Jack Patel's Dubai Dreams

    The book just breezes through... The protagonist is somebody whom you can vividly identify with. I can clearly see the makings of a bollywood block buster - a la "3 Idiots".

    Aamir Khan - Are you listening?
