5.0 out of 5 stars A well researched and organized book ! 13 July 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Mouse Charmers- The story unfolds from a country known for snake charmers to present day mouse charmers. "The mouse charmers are a new breed of entrepreneur in emerging India powered by internet and opportunities that it offers to create new markets and to cater to old markets in a new way."

Internet is vast by way of subjects and contents and so are the business websites discussed by Anuradha Goyal. To bring order to the chaos Anuradha smartly divides the websites into three section – Commerce, Content and Connectors.

Commerce section tells the story of retailers like Flipkart, MakeMyTrip, BigBasket and CaratLane. Content Section has the story of Zomato, Games2Win, ImagesBazaar and Chai with Lakshmi. While Connectors section tells the story of, Rang De, CommonFloor and IndiBlogger.

The book is very well researched and catalogs an untouched subject area in Indian context. In fact it has the potential to offer some lecture material for business school students who have lot to learn from book. Language is straight forward and content is well researched and organized. Though from a general reader’s point of view author should have included some stories of struggle and triumph. But even without them book doesn't become boring at any place and is a good read for anyone.

I will give five out of the five to the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Timely and Interesting 11 January 2015
By Manjul
This is a timely book and the author does a great job of giving a well thought through and systematic presentation of the world of India’s digital pioneers – companies like Flipkart, MakeMyTrip, Zomato, and many others which have in recent years become an essential part of our lives. In a clear, unhurried style the author presents an analysis of the different business models occupying the digital space (based respectively on commerce, content and connecting/brokering) and presents a few case studies on each type across many diverse sectors. Based mainly on interviews with the companies and their key staff and on relevant numerical data it delves into the key innovations, business strengths and technology interface that makes the particular company a leader in its field.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very shallow 20 June 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Was hoping for little more in-depth analysis but it's very superficial and pretty much everything you could read on internet about the businesses anyways.
