Publisher's Summary

Most human beings hunger after riches and success. There are any number of management books which provide theories and techniques on how to become rich and successful. All of them advise us to chase Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, in order to make her our own.

But the Indian approach to prosperity and fulfilment warns against the relentless pursuit of the goddess, writes noted thinker and mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik, as it will result in conflict. Rather, we have to give in order to get; we have to satisfy the hunger of others in order to satisfy our own. If we learn and practise this fundamental truth, Lakshmi will enter our homes and our lives.

Derived from his acclaimed best seller Business Sutra, this book is filled with lessons and insights into management, business and the creation of wealth and success.

Interesting...though not easy

This is my first book from Dev Dutta Patnaik and it was interesting listening. A different view to the same stories we heard from childhood. It maybe I read is too fast or I am slow but it was overload for me. Too many thing covered and too fast. I think I need to read it again so I am keeping it in my library.
I am going to read another one and will come back to enjoy this book and I am sure I will like it.
