I'm a very big fan of Rashmi Bansal and always her books never fail to inspire me. This book is very inspiring from the first few chapters I read. As usual there are some punctuation mistakes overlooked and it's time the editors do something about it. And the big glaring mistake is that they have stated that Coimbatore is in Kerala. That city is in Tamil Nadu and I wonder whether Rashmi herself made this mistake !!! --sanjeev kumar rangasamy on Jan 28, 2014
This book is about 20 entrepreneurs from villages in India who have made multi-crore businesses. People who started Balaji wafers to a women who established the first Engineering college in Kashmir. Key elements of this book : 1) It's very motivational. 2)You can always go back to it and re-read chapters and derive inspiration from it. Cons : 1) The quality of the pages are bad ( I think it's because of cost cutting) 2) English used in this book goes a little astray and offbeat. But above all that what matters is the story and it's a must have. --Rohit Nair on Nov 30, 2014

About the Book:
A no nonsense real life success stories of business success in small town written in interactive manner, very simple language, you not only read it but related to it one story or other, A big motivational book, this book is written in auto biography style but in laymen terms. I hope Rashmi keeps updating this with new versions of latest success stories
Verdict : A very good book to cherish
If u are looking into every detail of how entrepreneurs grow, this is not the book, but are interested in general overview, then go for it
Another Great Book By Rashmi Bansal. Thank you.
Book elaborates stories of entrepreneur s belonging to various sectors- manufacturing, service industry, innovative businesses etc... so there is something for everyone.
It gives ideas of challenges faced by entrepreneurs and the way they got over them by doing small & big things- this shapes a thinking of a reader.
At end of each story there are few words from the entrepreneur himself which sum' s up the story and makes us imagine of the character, personality of that person and give us msg what quality we need to build upon to be successful. .
I read 1 story a day and enjoyed each of them picking up atleast one character or quality of that personality..
Go for it...
Congrates, and Kudos to Author Rashmi Bansal... interviewing, collecting, collaborating and then writing the success stories of 20 such successful entrepreneurs in a one single book itself is a difficult task to do and the author has done a job well done... it has potential to inspire many start-ups, new businesses, students , small entrepreneurs and even anyone for success and growth .. read this one. I look forward to see more such books from this author or the other authors.
In terms of the quality, pages seem to be made of recycled/very low grade paper, the ones which you get from roadside sellers for 90% discounts (you know what I mean).
If you have too much money, donate it to charity rather than wasting this product.
