Latest Read: How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia by Mohsin Hamid

No. I did not like it. It seemed a bit forced with the self help theme. Another reviewer used the term gimmicky and I think he got it right. The book IS very gimmicky. 
It follows the unnamed protagonist from a poverty stricken childhood to extreme riches. It is a good story but so badly done - If you like Mohsin Hamid, I do not recommend it.

It seemed like a refurbished version of Slumdog Millionaire. I liked the local life metaphors that Hamid has used. Perhaps we can enjoy them more than a foreign reader.
