      Though I read books in this genre, I could read this book very quickly. These stories which deals with various personalities, who ventured into careers, that are normally unconventional. Easy to read and the way stories are presented from across the fields makes the book interesting. I heard Amish Tripathi, during a book launch and story on him remind me of his talk. The stories will help people who some times at cross roads regarding their choices. Really enjoyed reading this book.

      List books as I like to call them are gaining quite popularity these days. Like a collection of short stories, these chronicle lives of people based on a common theme. Author Rashmi Bansal specializes in them with all of her bestseller books based on this model. My Life My Rules comes from the same publishing stable as later of Rashmi’s books have been delivered. Author Sonia Golani has picked up a peculiar theme, people who have had unconventional careers. She has compiled stories of 18 such [...]

      I'm a biased reader of this book since it features my own story. That said, I found all the other accounts of individuals who've followed their hearts on a road less travelled, both educative and engaging. I was particularly inspired by the story of Praveen Tyagi who defied the odds for a poor, rural kid to gain an engineering degree from IIT Delhi only to dedicate his life to training other kids, with and without means, to emulate his example. I was struck by the fact that, despite the very div [...]

      In the last few years I have been more into reading business magazines & sports magazines apart from reading business & regular newspapers. Got back into the habit of reading books again regularly after reading Chetan Bhagat's Five points Someone which I liked a lot. Recently read My Life, My Rules by Sonia Golani which I finished reading in two hours. Normally, I am a slow reader and I can't read continuously unless the stuff is really interesting. Must be after a long long time that I [...]

      This is a compilation of stories of 18 successful people who chose to walk away from their "regular" professions to start something that they really wanted to do. Some of these people are well-known celebrities e.g. For example, Rashmi Uday Singh used to be a Deputy Commissioner of Income Tax, but today is a well-known food critic; Amish Tripathi, is a banker-turned-bestselling author; and Rahul Ram, an avid environmentalist who participated in the Narmada Bachao Aandolan, now makes music with t [...]

      This book is set on similar lines as those compiled by Rashmi Bansal, such as Stay Hungry Stay Foolish and Connect the Dots. The success of such books is not determined by a great writing skill (frankly all that is needed is that writing does not come in way of a story) but the selection of people and interestingness of their stories. It is the power of these stories alone that can make a book worthy.Good news is that in the choice of people and their stories, the book has been very effective. A [...]

      Many a times a lot of us have thought about making our hobby our career. However, in most cases this remains a thought only & does not not become a reality. Lack of proper information, fear of unknown, financial insecurity, family & social pressures hold us back from taking the plunge. Recently read My Life, My Rules which has stories of 18 people who could gather the courage & followed their hearts and made a good name & life for themselves. Apart from being an interesting & [...]

      A good book is one that makes you think. You read it for a while. Some lines of it strike a chord inside you and you sit thinking about the lines and the ripples it created within you. You start reading the rest. Some line hits you. You start thinking again. This happens over and over until you finish the book.It was really rare that you find such books. They may lack many things that a good book have. All that matters is the fact that some parts of the book created an ocean of thoughts inside y [...]

It take good heart and strong will to help otherpoor or rich really doesn't matter.Everybody will find one or other story to which they can relate their own life.Overall [...]

      Read the title again before choosing to read the book! This book talks about the personal lives of 18 persons who have chosen to adopt 'unconventional' careers. By personal i mean, upbringing, education and work profile, family and future plans - with little to no description about the career, challenges in the industry, India as a battleground, tips for a newcomer in it and maybe future of the industry. I was disappointed.

    11. Destination Infinity on said:

      This book is an interesting collection of interviews of successful professionals who chose unconventional careers. It's good for inspiration and gaining exposure, but does not cover any hard facts/challenges faced by the interviewed persons. It's overly positive!

      A sneak peak into the lives of some individuals who took an offbeat road a refreshing read
