Woke up on 1st of Jan, a New Year, to find ‘Stay Hungry Stay Foolish’ included in an odd list by Mint newspaper: ‘The decade’s 10 silliest books’
This list also includes authors like Paulo Coelho, Ian McEwan and titles like ‘Superfreakonmics’. So I don’t know whether to be offended or flattered
Coincidentally, on the same day I got sales figures from my publisher for the past 6 months (July-Dec 2009). We crossed the 1 lakh mark back in June 2009, and since then the book has sold another 50,000 copies.
So it looks like ‘silly’ is selling, and what’s more important, making people think about what they really want to do with their life.
And that, to me, matters more to me than what any critic has to say!
