About

A fascinating biography of Indian textile tycoon Dhirubhai Ambani, this book is the story of a rising capitalist group in post-independence India.

In the 26 years since its foundation, Ambani's Reliance Group has risen to rival the dominant industrial houses, and by 1995 the group had 1.2 million investors. Along with the dramatic expansion of the Reliance Group have come intricate political connections, corruption charges, and an abundance of booms and crashes for Ambani and his company.

The textile giant continues to realize his dream to be known as the outsider who took on India's business establishment and won, establishing a world-class company in the process.
