    Description

    Stay Hungry Stay Foolish, by Rashmi Bansal, is a collection of 25 inspiring stories of 25 graduates from IIM Ahmedabad, who chose to tread the path of entrepreneurship. Their stories have now become sources of inspiration for all the budding entrepreneurs.

    Summary of the Book

    Stay Hungry Stay Foolish is widely acknowledged as a genuine source of inspiration for every original thinker with big dreams, who aspires to work on the idea of creating their own business venture. The book has sold more than 400,000 copies and has been translated into several other languages since its publication in 2008. It studies the cases of 25 individuals from diverse backgrounds and presents them to readers. These are the people who started their own businesses at the beginning of their careers, after completing their MBA education. Stories behind popular names such as naukari.com and Subhiksha describe what early dreamers like Sanjeev Bikhchandani and R Subramanian achieved. Motivating cases like Makemytrip.com, Mphasis tell the stories of people with a former taste of corporate life, before they became entrepreneurs. Rashmi meticulously writes about some of the informative stories of social friendly projects taken up by IIM PGP graduates, including GiveIndia by Venkat Krishnan. The title has been taken from one of the famous speeches made by Steve Jobs during his commencement address at the Stanford University.

    Inspiring read but only in scope of IIM-A

    Rashmi Banshal, with this book, made an effort to instigate the entrepreneurial drive that had been long concealed under the cobwebs of naive social influences in an individual.

    Since one's childhood, the society, namely parents, relatives, teachers, friends etc;, influences on one's thought process thus forbidding him/her taking any risk but aim for a secure job to lead a hassle free life. Though this is the case in every corner of the world, India especially, few of them see the world out...

    Stay Foolish Stay Hungry

    Inspirational feel-good books are available a-dime-a-dozen.

    Yes, I am waiting for a book titled - Stay Foolish Stay Hungry. I want to hear stories of the 1000s of souls who risked it all and failed. There is a lot to learn from the successes of the few that the book will present but I think I will avoid a lot more pitfalls from the failures and learn about quagmires that you cannot escape.

    Entreprenuership Oriented

    This book is fully oriented to entreprenuership. Its inspirational and motivational. But the portrays the success of only IIM-A Grats. Its like an advertising book of IIM-A although it is not required since IIM-A is most coveted as always. Advisable for entreprenuerial interested ppl not for IIM-A aspiring ppl.

    Stay hungry stay foolish, but don’t make your stomach empty

    It is very good book for not only the peoples who wants to be an entrepreneur but also for the people who loves to dream and to make it real. The stories are very good and motivating. It says about self confidence, hard work, special techniques, and all about the way to be successful in life.
    But one thing, this is a book where the stories are all about the successful entrepreneurs from IIM-A. There are many more examples of successful entrepreneurs. IIM-A is no...
