CULT: Leadership & Business Strategy, Ruthlessly Redefined 1st Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.525

This book is directed towards all the existing and aspiring CEOs, to inspire them to not limit themselves to the already trodden path.

Summary Of The Book

As the world of business evolves promptly and at a great rate, along with cut-throat competition at all levels, it becomes essential for the top management professionals and the CEOs to keep pace with it and have a guidebook to pave their way to the top. This book serves the purpose exactly. 

Divided into two parts, this book addresses the problems regarding leadership that are often faced by CEOs of global corporations, and the serious issues faced by CEOs of large corporations pertaining to business strategy.

Some of the interesting topics included within the first section that deals with leadership issues are authoritarian leadership, the power of MBA, succession planning, role of regular communication, the winning losers, loyalty, health, youth, passion, employee satisfaction, and women CEOs.

The second section that tackles Business Strategy discusses and addresses many contemporary issues. Some of these are globalisation, diversification, recession, competition, R&D and technology, SBUs, second movers advantage, ethics, CSR, controversies and corporate reputation, and shareholder’s wealth maximisation and profit differentiation.

This well-crafted management book takes the Indian scenario into consideration too. The chapters are replete with management jargon, personal anecdotes, appropriate case studies and examples, and modern researches by both the authors on various crucial aspects of leadership and strategy.

CULT: It's radical; but contemporary

I've read many management books and consider myself quite a strict reviewer. I have to say, this book is not like anything I've ever read on the Indian management scene. Frankly, there is no strategic management book pertaining to India, less so for CEOs, and this book quite comfortably could be the first on that list. The pluses of the book are that this is a CEO strategy book resplendent with case studies, contemporary research and examples that will make you gain brilliant knowledge. The negative part is that this is written keeping the CEO in mind. Therefore, while it might be extremely helpful for current CEOs and prospective CEOs, the normal day-job sales executive might not wish to read it - or perhaps he would purely for the strategic knowledge.

My overall summary is that to appreciate this book, you have to be a top management professional who understands radical viewpoints and the fact that in today's world, no strategic move (well, almost none) can be based purely on emotion but should be based on research.

Overall, go buy the book - I hate the complexity of words used in some chapters, but the personal anecdotes written are just too hilarious. Did not buy the dude's previous books, loved this book and would recommend so to my juniors too.

Well written; deserving applause

I'm neither a lover of Arindam nor do I have had experience with the other author's books. When I bought this book, it was purely because one of my strategy professors at Stanford recommended it to me. He had read it and he apparently had been quite impressed and intrigued by the high amount of research and inference contained in this book. I was surprised when he recommended it to all students in my class during one afternoon. Well, guess what, I bought it grudgingly (with my dad's money of course).

I finished this book in two days. It took me two days because despite my initial scepticism, I was blown out by the outstanding quality of this book. I did not expect this level of deep research and analysis by Arindam and Sandeep. Therefore was quite surprised to find that my professor's initial recommendation was spot on. There are two basic sections. Each section contains many chapters. The first is basically behavioral. The second section is more strategic and operational. I'll recommend that you read the second section first and the first section second. And yes, don't miss the Appendix for stunning procedural diagrams of how to manage competencies in transnational corporations.

I've read the other reviews here. They say the negative part of this book is that it is targeted only at the CEO. What the heck, doesn't everybody want to be a CEO? If anyone wants my book, don't write to me, this one is for keeps.

interesting book

I am an avid reader and have always enjoyed reading Arindam Chaudhuri's books. All his books are on different topics and so this book Cult ,which has been co authored by A Sandeep,also had to be different. I found Cult very interesting. Arindam Chaudhuri's book always teach lesson or two in the end and this book was no different. Cult is an interesting book to read and is a brilliant book for business executives.

The Cult is one of the best book.

Cult is one of the best book that I have ever read. The book is purely for business heads and entrepreneurs and I thank the two authors for coming out with such an excellent book for CEOs. I really got to know many new thing and learned a lot through this book. The excellent book is indeed a classic guide for CEOs and a view on a vision that you can not find any where.
