Description

Stay Hungry Stay Foolish is an array of twenty-five biographies about IIM-Ahmedabad graduates who are now successful entrepreneurs. This book is motivating, to-the-point, and is an eye-opener for young Indians.

Summary Of The Book

Stay Hungry Stay Foolish is a collection of stories about twenty-five IIM-Ahmedabad graduates who decided to stay out of the corporate world, and instead chose the road less taken. These men and women became entrepreneurs, and climbed the ladder of success.

Stay Hungry Stay Foolish shows how all these individuals come from different backgrounds, work in different industries, and have different outlooks, but they all strongly believe in the power of their dreams. This book has been divided into three parts, namely The Believers, The Alternate Vision and The Opportunists. The first portion talks about the hardship faced by entrepreneurs like Sanjeev Bikhchandani, who started Naukri.com, and the founder of Educomp, Shantanu Prakash.

The Opportunists focuses on people who were not inclined towards ownership, but their inventiveness turned them into entrepreneurs. The story of how Ruby Ashraf made her hobby into a business is inspiring. The last section focuses on individuals who have taken the entrepreneurial path to do things that impact culture and society. Creator of consultancy firm Chlorophyll, Anand Halve’s story, is covered here. Some other IIM-A, alumni whose stories have been included in this book are R. Subramanian, the owner of the Subhiksha group, and Sunil Handa, the founder of the Ekalavya Educational Foundation.

The author hopes to familiarize readers with these successful entrepreneurs, so that Indians can look beyond corporate jobs and salaries. At the end of each biography is a section that advises young entrepreneurs. Furthermore, the author also explains terms like ADEPT, ORRU, and XBRL.

Stay Hungry Stay Foolish has been compiled after extensive research, and the author has used a very personal and conversational style of writing. This book is concise, inspiring, educative, and filled with practical wisdom. More than 350,000 copies of Stay Hungry Stay Foolish have been sold, thus creating a new book record in India. The book has been translated into eight languages.

About this book

Its really a good book but can't say the best of its parity. Its enjoyable that all the people of the book have done a great contribution to the society, hence they all came from a great educational background. But I was searching for those stories which actually derive the mind set of the people like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Sachin Tendulker who doesn't have that great background but similarly done the best of their parity. May be my search was wrong....but any ways this book is good for t...
