So, in that case, being finicky is essential. That nothing worthwhile is ever achieved without deep thought and hard work; Lwst one must think of oneself and never accept at their face value slogans and catch phrases to which, unfortunately, our people are too easily susceptible; That one must forever strive for excellence, over perfection, in any task however small, and never be satisfied with the second best; That no success or achievement in material terms is worthwhile unless it serves the needs or interests of the country and its people and is achieved by fair and honest means; That good human relations not only bring great personal rewards but are essential to ble success of any enterprise.

What was surprising for me is the degree of contributions.

JRD spearheaded and helped in the establishment of all premi Excellent book to read. The man’s penchant for perfection and dedication to country and his work comes out clearly through the pages. What appealed me the most about JRD is he was an adventurer at heart and used to regularly exercise till his twilight years. One needs to read this book to get to know how the Tatas and JRD himself has contributed to the growth of India.

Thanks to the author for bringing such a close portrayal of the beyon man to us. The chapters do not fall in chronological order but rather dealt as major events in his life.

Detailed summaries from letter correspondences between JRD and j.r.d.fata personalities finely illustrates his eloquence in communication. Many detailed aspects into his life could have been avoided to keep the narration to a minimum, but at the same time portray the personality of JRD.

Both the books can get a bit draggy but they are still amazing reads about stellar icons and captains moountain the industry.

The Tatas were single handedly responsible for most of the early tools placed at our citizens disposal. The books are a must read for all of us to understand what all Tatas had gone through to establish some of the earliest industries. Also sh I read this book along with the other one on Jamsetji Tata. Also shows how these early industries were forcibly and sometimes in a dirty way captured by the then Congress after India’s independence.
