Business is about passion, perseverance and continuously reinventing yourself. This book gives some remarkable examples of great entrepreneurs, who started with nothing but an idea and a passion for developing that idea. The over-riding theme behind a successful business and an entrepreneur is their love for venturing into the unknown, constantly innovating and cashing in on opportunities very quickly. I found the book very inspiring especially since some of the names mentioned like Strand Book Stall (and its owner Mr Shanbhag) are a must for anyone fond of reading and visiting Mumbai. A must-read for aspiring entrepreneurs and people who constantly hesitate on the right time to take the plunge to set up a business.
