One of those books that takes you back to the 'Business School Classroom'.

For those that might never have worked on a business case study... this book is one with a lot of questions, answers, and how these answers were arrived at... AND....the question of... now that we solved this...WHAT NEXT!?!?!

A book-capsuled mini business course.

The Mouse Charmers by Anuradha Goyal is an enriching educational read for every single mind out there, which dreams of becoming a digital entrepreneur. Her work is a source of inspiration but more than that a motivating starting point for anyone who aspires to tame the mouse (yes, mouse of computers) and become a mouse charmer, some day.

Simply focus on what actually is a digital entrepreneur and what actually is digital entrepreneurship, as you start reading it. Catch hold of basic concepts and the fundamental building blocks of setting up an e-business.

Her thorough insight coming from her vast experience is a blessing for aspiring entrepreneurs to establish themselves, for established entrepreneurs to flourish and excel. Students and aspirants can read these accounts as case studies while the businesses can read to set their benchmarks and identify milestones. Every single account is worth a read and read between the lines for acquiring more precision.

I am all praise about the book and I am confident that this is going to be one of the best books from Radom House India kitty. Just to share with you readers, it took me more time than expected because there is more than reading this book, it is enriching.

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 Shaadi.com, 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.

Format: Paperback
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, shaadi.com 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.

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.
