Book Review - Knockout Entrepreneur by George Foreman and Ken Abraham

Knockout Entrepreneur by George Foreman and Ken Abraham was a decent read. It tries to relate Foreman's experiences as a heavyweight boxing champion and as an entrepreneur after his boxing career was over. It is always interesting to read about someone who is a high achiever in his chosen field (like Foreman in boxing) and then goes out to achieve success in another unrelated field. It proves that success is based on certain attributes like hard work, perseverance and the ability to think and act for oneself. This is as true in the boxing ring as in real or business life.
The book is simplistic in it's approach and readers who are looking for some guides on how to star a business will be disappointed. This is more of a story of how Foreman made it big in business rather than a how-to guide. The book contains mostly common-sense approaches to starting a business which is available in nearly all this type of books. People who know George Foreman and have some liking of boxing would find it an interesting read as Foreman gives examples that parallel his boxing and business life. Overall, a pretty average book.

Review: My new ebook reader - Infibeam PI

I bought a new ebook reader. It is the Infibeam PI (www.infibeam.com/PI) . I have seen and used both the Amazon Kindle and Sony ebook reader. The main reason I selected the PI is because it was available in India. I did not have to wait for weeks to get my hands on it.

I will not go into detailed comparisons between the three readers I have used. The reason I bought the ebook is to read books. Although that sounds rather a stupid thing to say, I found some features on Kindle quite superfluous to book reading. Like the space consuming keyboard. I dont know of any book which comes with a keyboard, so why should an ebook come with one. If I have to surf the net, I will use my laptop to do it.

The whole buying process was easy and seamless. Delivery happened within 3 working days. The only regret I had was my father was not there to see this. He was pretty excited with the concept of an ebook reader and I had entrusted him with the duty of checking the condition of the parcel when it arrive…

Book Review: Let's Do Lunch by Roger Wilson

I read this book sometime back as part of my journey of understanding food and how it affects the body and mind. In the last two years I have managed to lose about 10kgs of weight and in the process have learnt a fair deal about food, although not enough to talk authoritatively with a nutritionist.

Roger Wilson's book deals mainly about how the author lost a significant amount of weight himself after trying his own diet plan. The diet he followed was eating fruits and proteins. His lack of fundamental knowledge of nutrition makes his commentary a suspect from the very beginning. This book is more a chronicle of the authors weight loss journey than a guide to healthy eating.


Conclusion: Better to avoid.
