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.
