Description

This book is best read in its entirety and in the sequence in which it is published. This may not be always easy. While JRD invariably read carefully everything I wrote and sent to him, he also told me often that seven typed pages is about the maximum that an interested yet busy reader should be expected to read at a stretch.

Different from other biographies of tale JRD Tata, this book is author’s personal insight into country’s leading entrepreneur’s life. The author D R Pendse is an internationally acclaimed economist who served Tata group for two decades as a full-time chief economist and worked intimately under the industry giant throughout this period.

Written in a story telling format, the book puts forth personal account of the author in a fairly engaging and lucid style. It would also widen public understanding of JRD’s philosophy and practical achievements.
