Congrets!!! Very good book! Well written. The best thing about the book is you allowed good space for entrepreneur to tell their story. In one line the concluding part is “lage raho”. A good number company listed in the book gone through “near to close” phase before prosperous. Patience might be the difference between success and not a success. This finding is very aspiring gesture for entrepreneur.

I just completed your book “Stay Hungry Stay Foolish” and I am feeling so inspired that i can’t express in words. I became a big fan of yours for writing such an exceptional book. Lots of thanks to you. “I would like to invite you for my interview one day”….This is the confidence you have developed in me.

I started reading your book on Tuesday morning (yesterday) and found it so intriguing that I took a day off from office just to read the book – I just couldn’t resist reading it till I read almost 3/4th of the book.
This book shows an end-to-end picture of what Entrepreneurship is all about. I found ‘Advice to young Entrepreneurs’ section ,at the end of every chapter, to be of great value. The CRUX in a nutshell.
This book is one of its kind and a must read for anyone who has ever wished to be an Entrepreneur.
I used to read JAM while I was in college and when I came to know about its co-founders are IIM Alumnus, I was so inspired that I started publishing a bi-monthly Newsletter for my college as well – it was a small bite of entrepreneurship at that time which made me do it. That appetite still needs to be satiated and this book has given me enough courage to take the Plunge.
You definitely ROCK !!

I just finished with the book & am glad to say it was in a record 2 sittings of 8hrs which itself is feat for me considering I am not a continuity reader.The stories I liked the most were of Venkat Krishnan, K Raghavendra Rao, RS Subramanian, Vijay Mahajan & Narendra Murkumbi in particular.
These as well as others in the book who have adopted a different approach to their well educated high pedigree lifestyle may inspire millions out there to think out of the box.Hats of to these people & to you as well for choosing a subject contrary to some fiction which sells more in todays market & also most importantly for keeping the shelf price of the publication VERY VERY AFFORDABLE AT RS 125( Its worth stealing even for 3 times its current price).
Lastly I would like to know more about the Wadhwani foundation,CIIE & institutions who help budding entrepreneurs in terms of guidance as well as imparting the right kind of training apart from IIMA.Would be very glad if you throw some light on the same.
Am happy to hear from you all – keep the feedback coming in! And keep the spirit alive…!
