4.0 out of 5 stars Great as a business book, not so strong as a life-guide, 9 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Do Cool Sh*t: Quit Your Day Job, Start Your Own Business, and Live Happily Ever After (Kindle Edition)
The four stars are given for the first half of this book, where the author tells us her story of opening her own business. There are truly great insights, tips, challenges, and advice for anyone who is even dreaming of opening their own business. This book challenged me to think of my work and my business in a different way. It inspired me to get off my butt and actually start doing cool s*** already!

And then there is the second half of the book. The part where Agrawal takes us through how to build friendships, how to be fit and healthy, and how to keep romance alive. The author clearly loves her life - which is great! But I found it quite sad this sort of instruction manual on how to be happy. Her choices and her lifestyle work for her, but it's naive to assume that she has found "the right way to live". That her happiness can be universally super-imposed onto any individual? I'm not buying it.

Read this book! Please read this book! It's great. It is positive and inspiring and encouraging and funny and clever. But I recommend skipping the chapters on the author's love-life and travel journal.
