Gurbaksh Singh Chahal was also the only Indian-American to be invited to the Oprah Winfrey Show which made him an entrepreneur icon overnight. Oprah Winfrey presented her guest to the audience pleasantly by saying My next guest is a high-school dropout who’s worth more than a hundred million dollars! She gave a pause before people could react, and continued playfully by saying And, he’s single. He mentions all these experiences in his book The Dream: How I Learned the Risks and Rewards of Entrepreneurship and Made Millions. By the time his book was released, he was already an international icon.

About book: There was one thing standing in my way, however: school. If I was going to pursue my goal, I would have to do it full time, and I needed my father’s permission to drop out. This wasn’t going to be easy. More than a decade earlier, my family had come to America from India, settling in a one-bedroom apartment in a marginal section of San Jose, California. Education, education, education! he would say, repeating it as if it were a mantra

Description: In The Dream, Chahal’s refreshing advice for entrepreneurs encourages them to embrace risk and to carve out new niches in the marketplace.

One of America's most successful young internet entrepreneurs tells his unique and inspiring story, and reveals the risks and rewards behind the sky's-the-limit possibilities of internet entrepreneurship.

Gurbaksh Chahal started the Internet advertising company ClickAgents from his bedroom at the age of 16, having emigrated to the United States with his Sikh family from the small town of Tarn Taran, India. He dropped out of high school to pursue the venture full-time, and two years later sold ClickAgents for $40 million, making him one of the youngest self-made millionaires in history and allowing him and his entire family to realize their dreams. Chahal went on to become the youngest executive of a multi-billion dollar NASDAQ-listed company, and then sold his second company, BlueLithium, to Yahoo! for $300 million, turning many of his employees into multi-millionaires as well.

In The Dream, Chahal's refreshing advice for entrepreneurs encourages them to embrace risk and to carve out new niches in the marketplace. He emphasizes the value of good business timing: how to execute an idea and get it to the marketplace, how to create and maintain solid business relationships, how to stay grounded, and -- most importantly -- how to teach yourself that failure is not an option.

Chahal's story not only shows how a 16-year-old immigrant overcame discrimination and adversity to fulfill his highest ambitions, but also provides aspiring entrepreneurs with valuable hands-on advice on how to achieve success.

What an unbelievable life and astonishing downfall! Worthy of Shakespeare, (yet more acts to come?) He is young enough to rise up again in equally astonishing ways. I am giving 4-stars to the book not his private life. But since it comes up there was an article on BBC this week by Zaria Gorvett: "Why it pays to be grumpy and bad-tempered". Worth looking over. It turns out a frequent trait for incredibly successful people to have bad, if not explosive tempers so I wish Mr. Chahal would write another book honestly chronicling what the hell happened to him. Crack cocaine? Women viciously betraying him? Culture clash? Vultures and wolves curling him and his money until he snapped? What? (Not that that is any kind of excuse for his actions). Still, what happened? I say this because the first half of "The Dream" is gentle, sensitive, endearing and touching, the struggles of an immigrant family starting at the very bottom. I much enjoyed it. Reminded me of John Fante's novels. But then the business struggles and troubles and it's like he is transformed into a different person. I very much recommend the first half of the book. What a beautiful, amazing story. The second half is not so good. A third rate "Art of the Deal" business self-help book. Meanwhile Mr. Chahal has gone from pizzas on Mondays to ultra expensive cars, Lost Vegas and women plus an obsessive drive for more, more, MORE money and success. He'd like a TV show about himself. I'm suspecting cocaine and drinking. Something big ran over him. Maybe all that cash. Here would be my observation. A man that seriously abuses women is someone in urgent need of help. For a system to turn around and put him thru hell is not an answer nor a solution it is just revenge. Jails are schools to make men worse, harder and more angry. Which is exactly what most will clamor for anyway. What would be better, in my opinion, would be if in payment for his debt he did write that next book that could help others on the wrong road to avoid speeding into the ditch at 120 miles an hour as he did. We all have the same qualities and potentials as he has. OK, forget the personal life of this writer which is tragic, the book is well worth reading. At least the first half.

So I bought this book on Friday, and today Sunday, am done reading it...not only did I find this to be an easy read, but also very inspiring.

What I think I really liked about the book was his honesty...I was just amazed at how forthright he was in this book about everything that has happened in his life. And I know that he is being honest because right around the start of the millenium, I met G a number of times and got to know him very well, well before he had become famous. He was however rich already then. I used to do a party called Kohi-noor, and I actually did a grand opening party for his Planet Bollywood Restaurant in Milpitas. And that it burned down 4 months after it opened, and there were all these allegations about him being involved in an insurance scam. I did not believe it then, and dont now, and was glad to read all about it in his book. G very candidly also talks about how he went about starting his business, what exactly he did, and how he made it a success.

Read this book, if you have any entrepreneurial instincts, or if you want to get some wonderful ideas about how to make a successful business. All through the book he writes in very well the lessons that he learned from each effort or failure. Failures after all are a necessary stepping stone to achieving success.

And finally a word to G...well done with this book. Write or chat me on FB, and let's get together for a drink for old times sake !

I really enjoyed reading this book seeing as it's well written, personal, and interesting. I grew up in the same era, in the same timeframe, in San Francisco instead of San Jose, and actually went down a similar path to G. I too am a high school dropout who went into technology and ended up an entrepreneur. I thought the book was a little light-weight on the details, but I supposed that's inevitable when you're talking about your first-person experiences as CEO: you can't get too specific. It took about two or three hours to read, and I thought it was worth the time: I'd definitely recommend it.
