My view:

This book is given by my wife on my birthday, I don’t know why she has chosen this book for me, and I think I have changed her life after marriage so she has given me as this game changer, ha ha ha ha.

After Rashmi Bhansal’s connect the dots and many other series of entrepreneurship books, many authors have taken a less risky genre for writing the book, as this types of books sells like a hot chocolate cakes publishers are also eager to publish this types of books.

Entrepreneur books are always my first preference, as you will know how that particular person has came out of struggle and made his own path for success. Generally, people looks on the success side of any person but how he/she has reached that goal is not taken into consideration, but by reading these types of books it gives lots of inspiration to the readers.

Now about this book Game changer, to be frank I didn’t like the book that much, I didn’t got what I have expected. This book is some what monotonous and boring many times. Although there are many inspiring stories like that of Dr Harish Hande, Anuradha Acharya, Venkata Subramanian, Arvind Kejriwal etc. they all have done some unique things. Other stories are like technical stuffs, as I am not from IIT i didn’t got with the headings also where RK hall, RP hall etc, so if authors have given some background then it would be good for the readers.

I am giving 2.5* for the book, those who are from IT field will like it. Go for the book any how you will get inspiration from 20 such stories.

Blurb:

Entrepreneurship is not about breaking free of the 9 to 5 humdrum, not about being your own boss, and definitely not glorious. The entrepreneur shuns the comfort of a cushy corporate job and seven-figure salaries to set sail on unchartered waters with a single minded zeal and only an idea as an anchor. But it is this idea and passion that makes all the difference and catapults them into a world of infinite possibilities.

The Game Changers brings to you a 20 success stories of IITians who went on to live the big dream. With a Foreword by Duvvuri Subbarai, the Governor of the Reserve Bank of India, and an introduction by Dr. Damodar Acharya, Director, IIT Kharagpur, this book marks the sixty golden years of Indian’s finest institute. Come, be a part of their journey, get inspired to dream, and make your own story.
