Book Review: Stay Hungry Stay Foolish

Book : Stay Hungry Stay Foolish
Author : Rashmi Bansal

The last time that I had heard about Rashmi Bansal was during the famous IIPM issue. I am sure every blogger would remember the sad story.
Nevertheless, every incident, makes a person only stronger. I guess an outcome of that is a book so beautifully written.
25 IIMA grads, each of them making a marking somewhere, and just reading their success stories, makes one feel, how important is failure in each one's life. Where would all there people be, had they quit after their failure. I am sure there are thousands of similar kind of individuals, but the only reason, we dont know of them, because, they didnt get up after their failure.

Every story, just makes one get up and wonder, "Why am I doing what I am doing?". What about your dreams and the things that one loves to do. All these great men, only did whatever their heart told them and they are where they are now. One more noticable fact is that none of them went after money. Its was the passion that drove them what they wanted to do, and the money just followed them. Had they followed the money, I guess many would have failed, as rats jump out of the sinking boat, while the captain stays on till the ship is not drowned.

Awesome book. A must read for everyone. No two thoughts about it. And all it costs is Rs 125/-. I guess thats the only part of the book which was not up to its right value.
