A High Tech Business Venture: Startup, Growth and Closure: My Preparation for the Business Venture by Hariphad Dhar is a little memoir of the author's life and journey through hardship, innovations, and how he became a successful entrepreneur.

Mr. Dhar was raised in Bangladesh, a third-world Asian country. Many factors aided his educational careers, such as selfless contributions from Dr. Arun Kumar Basak, scholarships, and help from his elder brother. He lost his job as a Research Scientist with Energy Research Corporation (ERC) in Danbury, Connecticut. While in the company, he researched the fundamentals of fuel cell reactions, including energy devices for clean, non-toxic, and alternative energy. He later worked for Ementeck, Inc. and resigned after being sidelined in the company's expansion process. He then opened a biotech company, which later liquidated. What led to the closure of this promising venture, and how did Mr. Dhar handle it? Read up to be inspired.

I appreciate the fact that the author is more detailed in his narrative. The book takes the reader to a place of introspection characterized by critical thinking. I must commend the author for writing such a debut memoir. He did an excellent job. I appreciate how the author included his business plans, competitive submission for a recognition award, and some other documents because they can serve as a direction and inspiration to others in this field.

Mr. Dhar's struggled to establish himself amidst many rejections, discriminations, and poverty while giving topmost attention to his family. I believe many individuals who witnessed similar frustrations must have given up on their dreams and aspirations. This book teaches a vital attribute of not settling for less.

However, there were a few things I disliked about the book. It was not well edited as I found some grammatical errors and repetitions that affected my reading comprehension. I also felt the story part of the book had no clear distinction between time frames. Based on these reasons, I am rating A High Tech Business Venture: Startup, Growth and Closure: My Preparation for the Business Venture 3 out of 4 stars.

I would recommend the book to readers interested in science and technological novels. Also, entrepreneurs, academic researchers, and people of a disadvantaged background might find the book interesting. On a final note, the author's rise is an encouragement to the reader because it emphasized that "we only fail if we do not try."

Very nice review. Too bad the book was not well edited. The last sentence was motivating.
