Super read. One of the best books on entrepreneurship I've read. Mar 08, Bulbul rated it liked it. Mediocre book which does not cover Ronnie's entire career.
The advice is more gyaan than practical and I don't know how helpful it is. Quick read. I finished it in a few hours. Jul 01, Abhilash Ruhela rated it really liked it. There is nothing special than reading an autobiography by one of the many successful Indian men who did it without any complaints or excuses.
We generally get excited knowing about the successes of the individuals in western part of the world but forget to appreciate the people doing well against all odds living and breathing around us.
One such man is Ronnie Screwvala who is a wonderful example of how to be an entrepreneur and a success story. He has written his own tale of success and failures There is nothing special than reading an autobiography by one of the many successful Indian men who did it without any complaints or excuses. So the author very directly and clearly states here that he is not going to tell what person he is or what his background has been but will only focus on his entrepreneurship life and lessons.
The book is very crisply written without extending the stories with useless detailing. Ronnie exactly knows the value of time hence he assures that he speaks most in as less words as possible. This is what makes the book a special read as you will not have to read much to gain insights on his entrepreneurship role but only pages.
The book is written in a very simple language for every student to a new corporate slave or an entrepreneur to understand the same without having to read between lines.
He also talks about his failures with the same enthusiasm which tells how literally he is proud of each second that he has worked upon his life to be a successful entrepreneur. It is only after reading the book you will realize the number of different things that Ronnie has been involved with.
You will be surprised to notice the different scales of business he overtook and started right from Zero and ended up being either the topmost performer or at least in the merit list for sure. Ronnie has ensured that he even discusses the amount and costs involved in the projects without shying away from disclosing the same. Ronnie has taken names of other popular celebrities and talked good or bad experiences he had with them without any fear which makes it an interesting read to know the tie-ups and communication between these personalities.
To learn about a successful man, you need to know both- his professional insights and his personal lifestyle because until and unless, you do not know both, you will never be able to replicate his success by following his footsteps. Also, there are many advises that he has just quoted to be followed rather than giving heavy explanations on the same.
Except these drawbacks, this book is surely readable to understand how one needs to take risks in life to lead a successful entrepreneurial life. I give this book 3. Feb 19, Mohan Narayanan rated it it was amazing Shelves: Absolute beauty.. There is a letter in this book written to Ronnie by one of his colleagues. He for the same in this book.

His journey brings u up with so much confidence but late when you think about it, the sheer scale of the journey he had and things he has done, gives you chills. Must read for every aspiring Indian entrepreneur. Dec 17, Anirudh Jain rated it really liked it.
This is one of the most prosaic and practical books I have read in a long time. This book tells the story of a media maverick who changed the way in which Indians consumed television. A visionary who was far ahead of his time, he predicted trends like home shopping before they were a rage.
All this comes from a man with humble background. This book is filled with practical explanations on how to be a leader, the importance of clear communication and many more wisdom nuggets. Highly recommended to This is one of the most prosaic and practical books I have read in a long time. Highly recommended to anyone who is in a managerial position, his way of business and his ability to hustle is what made him the man he is today.
Ronnie being the first generation entrepreneur and starting in s explains his experiences beautifully. From setting up a toothbrush business to founding UTV and finally selling it to Disney.
He explains the perils and joys, and most importantly how to keep going from one failure to another and never leaving the course. Though personally, I think he hasn't touched the bureaucratic problems while doing b 'Dream with your eyes open' is the book about entrepreneurial journey of Ronnie Screwvala.

Nov 12, L. Truely aspiring and motivating. Recommended for the upcoming entrepreneurs of the country. In this book, Ronnie Screwvala has given very beautiful insights which can be related to the everyday struggles of an entrepreneur.
This book gives us inner strength to go through the struggles with a clear mind, focus and determination. His trusts and beliefs n the country's energetic and passionate youth to take the helm of the country's development and steer it into a bright future is mind blowing. Reall Truely aspiring and motivating.
Really worth reading and sharing it. A deeply personal look into Ronnie's life - which has been interesting and inspiring to say the least. It suffers from what most autobiographies suffer, that it is not a complete picture, only their version of the tale.
But just that peek into Ronnie's ventures and his approach and philosophy is enough. Insulating yourself against failure does not guarantee success. For UTV, console games turned out to be a failure. The only console game titles that were doing well were the sequels of the earlier popular titles, bought primarily by their earlier fans.
We naively thought that our creative teams would be able to get us popular titles by sheer creativity. Survival plan is not necessarily a Plan B but a recalibration indicator. Possibly what is known as pivoting the business these days? Trucks are trends that are headed the wrong way-your way for a head-on collision. An entrepreneur needs to be able to distinguish when his trend is morphing into a truck. Gauging the future requires an ability to analyse the past while, at the same time, make sense of the present.
This balancing needs to be coupled with spending time with your customers as well as understanding various trends building up around you. In fact, UTV has a core trendsetting team. I do not believe in luck but I do believe in being in the right place at the right time.
But how are they different? They mean the same. I believe being in the right place at the right time requires planning, a high level of preparedness and a positive and evolving mindset. Luck, by its definition, does not require any of these. Inequality for me is an opportunity. Find a starting point and begin!
Lack of funding is only an excuse. A couple of decades back entrepreneurs did not build business to exit within three years. It is important to understand the stereotypes being celebrated in the internet world today are not the normal.
My exits from my businesses have been never been timed and they have all had their stories in terms of how and when they happened. For us this was a good deal and we agreed. The media broke the story before we signed on the contract. Soon I had Andy Bird, chairman of Disney International, on the phone with me telling me how Disney has been following the success of Hungama in India and would be keen to download the channel, given that I was going for a 26 per cent sale with the Malaysian broadcaster.
We agreed to discuss. I immediately informed the Malaysian partner about our rethink. Within a fortnight we had a deal with Disney to sell per cent of And then it almost did not happen.
We disengaged from the discussions and I called up Kevin to thank him. My conversation with Kevin, while not meant for that, opened our discussions again and soon we had finally closed the deal of selling Hungama to Disney.
So much for timing exits! My partnership with Disney was for six years followed by two more years as the managing director of the combined entity Disney UTV. In my second year, I had started introspecting if I was the right person to lead the company for the next five years. I could not answer myself in a yes, and decided to move not only out of Disney UTV but also out of the media sector. For me there is nothing called hindsight. But if I could go back and change one thing, it would be my focus.
Single minded attention to an idea regardless of the outcome, provides the most intense of learnings. As their leader, your team will look up to you for direction-essentially asking you to make the right choices.
Our life is a series of making choices.
It is important for you to think about how these choices can become a path to a better life. Building empathy helps take a view that goes beyond day to day operations and helps form a more humane perspective of the business. I have a contrarian view as far as having a Plan B is concerned.
Yes I did talk about survival plan earlier. But survival plan is not Plan B. Plan B encourages you to keep an eye on the exit. The entrepreneur DNA requires being honest with yourself. This is not about integrity but about being honest with your own inner self-holding the mirror to yourself. Do not try to justify your failure or rationalise why the business is not doing well.
