Book Review : Irrationally Passionate by Jason Kothari

Irrationally Passionate by Jason Kothari 

About the Book:
In the Book “Irrationally Passionate: My Turnaround from Rebel to Entrepreneur”, Janson shares his success story and the lessons he learned in his life.

The book starts with his difficult childhood Journey of how he has been bouncing from countries to countries. He says those frequent cultural and language changes was challenging.

During his life as a student, he gets addicted to alcohol. After the addiction, in 2000 he moves to a new place Pennysylvania to start fresh.

This book can be a Bible for the entrepreneur and a must read for people who aspire to be entrepreneurs. Each page has at-least one inspiring statements like “Every Person has a vast reservoir of untapped potential.”  This book gives us a hope that any one can become successful, if they are determined.

When his goal was to get the physical body in shape, he learnt a new exercise each day and strives to do more repetitions than the previous day. Similarly, When he was not good at basketball and his classmates blamed him for his performance, instead of getting frustrated he gets a determination to improve and goes on winning many tournaments.

Writing style of the author:
Jason has the power to motivate people through his writing and Its a good Entertaining read. 11 life lessons are shared along with the author’s real-life journey. The author usage of vocabulary is appropriate. Unlike other authors who willingly choose difficult language just to show off, he use precise language to communicate his message.

Autobiography of Business People are always a good teacher and this book will definitely change our thought process for the good.

Target Audience:
If your choice for reading is for entertainment, knowledge, or for inspiration this book is a right choice.

My Top Three Take away:

  1. Mistakes in our life teach us a valuable lesson and those are at times needed to bring us back on the right track.
  2. If you are good at evil, you good be equally good at good things as well. 
  3. Our Parents might be strict and sometimes hard on us, but it could be their way of conditioning and toughening us.
For Jason, 3 questions have been a turning point in his life.

  • Where are you now?
  • What do you want to do?
  • How are you going to get there from today?

These 3 simple questions gave him a clarity and the direction of what he needed in the future.
Dear Readers, Ask yourself the above 3 questions and get a clarity of what you need in your life.
