Entrepreneur Journeys Book Review: VentureWoods Reviews “Entrepreneur Journeys”

Posted on Saturday, Oct 10th 2009

Several weeks ago, VentureWoods readers were given the opportunity to review “Entrepreneur Journeys” by Sramana Mitra.  Some of the initial reviews have been posted here, including:

“Entrepreneurship can never be taught; it can only be experienced.  And the only way to learn about it is through stories.  ‘Entrepreneur Journeys’ brings twelve such stories alive.  What is remarkable in these journeys is not where these businesses have reached, but the process of getting there—the role that individual conviction played.

An important side effect of this reading is that it captures the hottest areas in venture investing today—even when it is describing entrepreneurs who never raised external capital.  That focus on scalable and capital efficient businesses will allow first time entrepreneurs to dream big and execute efficiently.”–Alok Mittal, Canaan Partners

“Sramana writes very well and the book is a breeze to read.”–Shashank Mohan

“This book invokes craziness in ideas at the same time represents importance of implementation.”–Virat Singh Khutal

“It is highly educative to read Sramana’s insights of various domains (web 2.0, web 3.0, Saas, Search, Mobile, and Energy) and the business opportunities they present.”–Manjula Sridhar

“Read the interviews, laugh with them, get amazed with them, get jealous in some cases and take lessons from all of them.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.”–Saurabh Garg

Entrepreneur Journeys is available from Amazon in paperback and Kindle, from Smashwords.com in all e-book formats, and can also be found in bookstores in India.
