Born in Hong Kong to middle class Gujarati parents, Jason
had a tough childhood that included frequent uprootment and
moving around the globe and facing cultural shocks and racism.
Jason Kothari is a graduate of The Wharton School and has
been hailed as a turnaround specialist ever since he saved his childhood
favorite Superhero comic book company, Valiant Entertainment, from bankruptcy
and gave it a new lease of life, while still being a college student and he later
sold it for a whopping $100 million!
Jason proved to the world that his was not a fluke case by repeating his success story with Housing.com, FreeCharge and Snapdeal , all of
themcollapsing businessesthat were revived by him.
He soon went on to be one of the top ten highest paid
executives in the world while still being in his thirties.Currently, Kothari is on the Board of
Directors of Emaar India, a subsidiary of the company that developed the landmark Burj
Khalifa in Dubai.
He now resides in Mumbai, India.
About The Book - Irrationally Passionate
This book is a highly intense and personal account of his journey
from being a beaten down rebel kid to a widely acclaimed entrepreneur and turnaround
The book has simple, easy to understand
language, no difficult literary words or heavy quotes here, which sends across
the author’s thoughts in a very lucid manner and I think that was intentional
on the part of the author. Jason does not try to impress the reader with his
Wharton degree or his accomplishments, but makes a sincere effort to share his
story with the world and inspires others to chase their dreams. According to him,
a lot of his strategy and skills developed not from what he learnt at Wharton
but much earlier and from his personal experiences in life.
Autobiographies are tricky
business to write when you are a celebrity. People can and do a google search
on you and already know about your story
because of which there is no novelty factor in reading that autobiography .So the trick lies in giving a
new perspective or the inside story on the life events that made the man a
legend and Jason succeeds at keeping the narrative interesting.
Jason Kothari succeeds in giving
us a gritty and raw account of his life, struggles and challenges and how every
adversity taught him a life skill and drove him to face his demons even more
ferociously. He reveals how rediscovering spirituality through Jainism helped
him kick his vices.
I took up this book almost expecting a Slumdog Millionaire
kind of a story, but this is not really an unbelievable and magical rag to
Jason seems to have far more privileges than what a common
person is born with, so that kind of takes away from the stardust. But then
again, we all have some disadvantages and some privileges in life and we all get
opportunities; it is what we make of them that make us who we are. It is the
tough decisions and the ability to take a rejection and bounce back, that makes
you a force to reckon with.
Jason makes you believe, that it is important that you have
a dream and when you have the dream, you just need to keep fighting and
improvising for that dream to become a reality and that never say die attitude really
is the key to entrepreneurial success .He succeeds in selling the theory that
it pays to be irrationally passionate in life!
A book which will probably inspire many and certainly will
be a bestseller.

I recently got to drink this Chenin Blanc White Wine from the Grover Reserve Collection 2017 vintage and I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was.
Chenin Blanc is a versatile white-wine grape variety that has been cultivated in France for nearly 1300 years and recently being cultivated by Grover Zampa Vineyards in Southern India .
This wine is from the Grover Art Collection range and bears the artwork of famous Bengali Artist Sanjay Bhattacharjee who is well known for his use of vivid colours to convey depth and perspective just like the wine the bottle holds !
So that is another fact that can make this a collector's item or great for gifting.
