Publisher's Summary

The inside track to India's most powerful tycoons

The eight business maharajas profiled here are among Asia's most powerful industrial tycoons. Their combined turnover runs into billions of rupees, and between them they employ some 650,000 people, while indirectly affecting the lives of millions more. 

Sip a cup of tea, drive to work, listen to music, build a house and the chances are that in these and a myriad other ways you are using products that they manufacture or market. By any yardstick, the achievements of these men would rank among the great business stories of our time. How did these men build their enormous empires? What are their management secrets? How did they thrive and prosper even as others failed? What is their vision for the future? 

Top business writer and industry insider Gita Piramal draws on exhaustive interviews and in-depth research to discover the answers to these and related questions in her profiles of the men who will lead the country's push to become an industrial superpower in the 21st century.

bad narration

the book is interesting, but very bad narration, seems like a computer voice without any modulation or breaks, very monotonous makes listening difficult, wish they had chosen a better narrator.

Needs a better narrator...Overall content is ok

The narrator needs to be changed. Her pronounciation is appalling. There is no voice modulation. the content should be updated by the author.
