Whatever The Odds : The Incredible Story Behind DLF (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 460

The DLF saga has few rivals in the realty sector. Starting from Delhi, where the company developed the city\'s major residential colonies, the developer's focus shifted to Gurgaon in the 1970s, transforming a small town into a city of skyrises that is now an international business hub and a destination for young professionals to stay and work. Extraordinary as the story is, that of the man behind the revival and enormous success of the company is even more so, covering a journey from a small town in Uttar Pradesh to England where he became a part of high society, to a return to India and an army career en route to taking charge of DLF.

From the small detail to the big picture, nothing is missing in this riveting account of conducting business in India in a politically charged atmosphere. As too of his own life with all its challenges and triumph over odds that would have defeated most people.

Incredible story about KP and DLF but the book has its flaws

It's a book that was a little disappointing because it did not give too many insights into how KP Singh worked,thought etc. There were some insights like how 'he always did things that others thought were going to be unsuccessful'.

One other interesting point was how he lobbied hard against archaic rules and regulations instead of bribing officials. I would have loved to hear him talk about his flaws and weaknesses too but largely the book only covers his positive sides.

Its a good read, a page turner at times and a little slow at times but its worth the money spent.

Awesome compilation

The book is indeed a treat to read, well versed with facts and real time experience is the USP of this book. The book is very well written and is of connaisseur value. It throws light on both personal and professional accompalishments.

Awesome good read

Unlike many other life stories I have read recently, this one has awesome variety - not just about how he made his money! There's lots about horses and polo and air crashes and trips to Switzerland. I think its an important thing that there's lots to learn for start-ups -- keep your eye on the ball, don't let delays get you down. The whole book is so well written that new writers can also pick up a few tricks on how to pace a story.

not what you are expecting..

first off, i could not find any odds in this book. Rather just telling u that there were odds. just a below average compilation. could have been better if more facts were included and less politics was..

A Must Read

I have read the book twice and have come to the conclusion that the book is a must read for all management students and residents of Gurgaon. The autobiography is an eye opener and tells us what Gurgaon could have been without some of the all powerful politicians. It also tells us how personal dealings matter in the real world.
