Unbarred Innovation: A Pathway to Greatest Discoveries by Mayur Ramgir is a unique look at entrepreneurship and having confidence in yourself and your ideas. There is nothing that you cannot do. Many times, people are confused or lack confidence in their ideas. So they back off and return to their ordinary lives. However, if the most innovative people of our time had thought the same way, we might not have this amount of advancement in our time. What I really liked about this book is the fact that the advice given can be applied to anyone and any idea.

This advice is not restricted to one industry, so to speak. Mayur Ramgir gives sound advice on how your idea can be the next big thing too, if only you give yourself the chance to explore it. There is nothing too complicated or technical in this book that you cannot understand. You will not find anything that will confuse you. It is the best motivational book I have ever read. It has a constant uplifting theme backed by good word choice.

I feel that Mayur Ramgir did a phenomenal job by providing the general public with a confidence boost. His use of real innovators' success stories also helps to back up the whole theme of the book. I would highly recommend this book to people who are lost and need direction in their careers. This will definitely help them with very good, sound advice.

Unbarred Innovation: A Pathway to Greatest Discoveries by Mayur Ramgir is a goldmine of information for aspiring entrepreneurs! This book is stuffed with information regarding how to unlock your true potential and achieve your goals and dreams that you thought were out of reach. Ramgir leads readers through real life examples of successful entrepreneurs. But the part I liked the best (and I believe readers will too) is that Ramgir not only highlights the successes but also the failures. Readers are shown that failures and stumbles are just part of the journey; how one reacts to them is the real key, though. The author explains that you must get back up and continue on, no matter what, in order to reach your desired goals.

I found the content of Unbarred Innovation to be very user-friendly and easy to follow. Ramgir leads readers along, explaining the how's, why's and what's of pursuing entrepreneurial dreams. One must discover and unlock their own personal drive and innovation in order to achieve the best path for their lives. Each of us has the potential to do and achieve amazing things, if only we will try. People tend to give up too quickly when success does not come easily and Ramgir provides a vast amount of inspiration and motivation with this book. I would recommend Unbarred Innovation: A Pathway to Greatest Discoveries by Mayur Ramgir to all aspiring entrepreneurs and all recently graduated college students - what a great asset this book would be to those just starting out.

Unbarred Innovation: A Pathway to Greatest Discoveries by Mayur Ramgir is a motivating self-help book aimed at inspiring innovation in individuals and organisations. A wealth of chapters detail what innovation is, how it can be encouraged and developed, what may prevent it, and what remarkable things can be achieved through it. The author believes all people are capable of being innovative – given the right mind set, opportunity, environment and encouragement. An “unbarred innovation” occurs when people develop self-realization, motivation, overcome obstacles such as fear of failure, background or knowledge barriers. Chapters outline how these obstacles can be identified and overcome and how companies can be transformed into places where individuals are properly valued and are allowed to offer their full potential.

Unbarred Innovation is an inspiring and fascinating look at what can happen when the things that can hold people back from reaching their full potential creatively and personally are overcome. Examples of successful and well-known high achievers, such as Steve Jobs, Mark Bao, Larry Ellison, J.K. Rowling and Li Ka-shing illustrate how ordinary people (many of whom overcame immense disadvantages or struggles) were able to change their lives. Ramgir draws out the lessons to be learnt from these examples, showing how seemingly impossible barriers may be overcome when people are determined and open to learning and risk taking. The reader is encouraged to think laterally, acquire knowledge, triumph over perceptual barriers, and take advantage of the right kinds of environments, people and support systems. I like the idea of how innovation can become a lifestyle – through perhaps travel, attending conferences, being an avid reader, taking up creative or artistic pursuits, for example – because when we experience new things and challenge ourselves we develop the most.

In his chapters on developing and leading an innovative company or business, the author uses the examples and wisdom of successful entrepreneurs or business people who use a liberating and collaborative way of running their companies - there are some excellent and refreshing solutions and premises here that could transform any workplace. Mayur Ramgir’s book is a thorough and inspiring look at how to nurture and benefit from innovative thinking, life styles, and ways of working, and is an excellent starting point for anyone seeking vision, understanding, and empowerment for themselves and others.

In his clear and assuring voice, the author encourages readers to have courage in thinking their own thoughts and working on them. In the same line with Steve Jobs, he warns, “Don’t let people’s negative perspectives impact yours,” and moves on to show how to stand out from the crowd by defeating negative thought patterns, developing focus on what works best, discovering strength in weakness, and creating winning connections.

Unbarred Innovation: A Pathway to Greatest Discoveries by Mayur Ramgir carries a powerful message for seekers and dreamers, a message that anyone can achieve their dream and create the life they want.

Recognizing that anyone has his or her own unique style and nature, he encourages readers to seek out what works best for them and to focus on it. Most interesting is his take on how to deal with problems and how to get motivated in moments of discouragement. The book is laced with practical tips and examples drawn from the day-to-day lifestyle that most readers will identify with. The author’s style is simple and accessible and the work is beautifully conceived, wonderfully executed, thoughtful and highly motivating.
