Good work published for promotion. Biyani at multiple places but the lucid storytelling with people telling about Biyani followed by the man himself arrests the endless immortalization. Years later, with the launch of Pantaloons, Big Bazaar, Food Bazaar, Central and many more retail formats, he redefined the retailing business in India. Many comments are in the nature of self-praise; one of the best points that emerge from the book is a reiteration of having superior human relationships as one needs to deal with people in the end customers.

It epitomizes the problems faced by him trying to adventure out of his family business to try something new and the hardships faced overcoming which taught him many a lesson.

A mind like this is not methodical, it is constantly rambling evolving, experimenting and that is what the book tries to instil in us.

It is basic human nature that when someone home grown is on to something, his own people are the last to recognize him.
