Not a very good book

This book doesn't even attempt to scratch the surface of JRD and his personality and his business endeavours.

Not an audio book

This seems more like a podcast. Though it was an easy listen. Recommend it if you want a gist or summary. I kind of was looking for more

Exactly to the point, what mind was searching for

Excellent, loved and I have adored it, simple but extraordinary person to be understood. We shouldnt miss this visionary tycoon, who really has given wings to Indian dreams, by following his on heart. The book is written so well, everything is perfect, Boman sir and Shrenaz's voice make it a perfect audiobook, the music is extraordinary, it gives you goose bumps. overall a brilliant presentation of an extraordinary personality.

Precisely narrated !!

Must to have in your collection. This audio book gave me fair enough idea about a true Gentlemen JRD and provoked me to read the biography.

Overall brilliantly performed ***** ALL FIVE STARS

The book offers glimpses of legendry Indian industrialist J.R.D. Tata’s life. The most memorable lines for me are brilliantly performed by Boman Irani:

“I believe that the social responsibilities of an industrial enterprise should extend even beyond serving people to the environment. This need is now fairly well recognized but there is still considerable scope for most industrial ventures to extend their support not only to human beings but also to the land to the forests to the waters to the creatures that inhabit them”.

Similarly, Shernaz Patel’s performance is extraordinary. The narrators make this book a memorable one. The book also reminded me of Langston Hughes’s poem,

“Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly ….”

J.R.D Tata’s life cannot be captured in a one-hour audiobook. He dreamed big and worked hard to make them real, He is the founder of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Air India, and more than 80 companies.

J.R. Tata said and I quote “I do not want India to be an economic superpower. I want India to be a happy country.” And this was the measure of his value system.

Great book and everybody will learn something new.
