Intelligent Fanatics of India Launch

It has been a year and a half since we expanded our research into India. In that time, our team has generated nearly 100 member studies, discussions & public articles focused on intelligent fanatic entrepreneurs in India.

Today we are happy to announce our next step. Our book Intelligent Fanatics of India will be released October 16, 2019. You can pre-order the Kindle version here. The paperback will be available the same day.

Rohith Potti and Pooja Bhula did a phenomenal job applying our framework to a carefully chosen group of seven Indian entrepreneurs from diverse industries. The list includes private as well as public companies, first generation entrepreneurs as well as entrepreneurs from established families, well-run businesses as well as turnarounds. Many of the studies haven’t been published on our platform.

You’re probably wondering, “I’ve read one (or both) of your book(s), why read this one”?

Intelligent Fanatics of India is another phase in our journey. When Ian and I initially wrote our first book, we had an idea: the smaller the company, the more important leadership is. A leader (in business, investing or any field) who can do things other skilled mortals can’t are intelligent fanatics. We wanted to build our pattern recognition of these individuals and their organizations, and build our own leadership skills.

Like an artist we knew where to begin: retrace the steps of greats of the past and present. Still, studying, thinking and writing about a topic for more than a year doesn’t automatically equal fluency. In fact, we were high on Mt. Stupid.

Now we are a few years wiser. We have surrounded ourselves with better writers and thinkers. We started applying our concepts with Intelligent Fanatics Capital Management and elsewhere. Each subsequent book we write shares new stories, but most importantly our new understanding.

Intelligent Fanatics of India is not written by either Ian or I. You should rejoice because it’s better than what we can do. At the same time, this book is our team’s current model on intelligent fanatics.

Whether you want to find fanatics early in their development or, most importantly, want to become an intelligent fanatic in business, investing or elsewhere, this book is for you.

Thanks Randy… I was not sure about it… It was due to Sean and Ian that it happened…
I was quite nervous about it but Robert is a great interviewer and put me at ease (to the extent possible :-))
