  • Description
    Saurabh Mukherjea, bestselling author of Gurus of Chaos, delivers an exceptional book with lessons to learn from these seven businesses. Mukherjea tells you why focusing on the core business is central to corporate success and how a promoter giving up control to the top management could be a boon. He also explains how investors can generate market-beating investment returns from identifying companies such as these using a simple set of metrics. Packed with these learnings are riveting corporate stories of how Hindustan Unilever made an aggressive bid to buy Harsh Mariwala s business, but had to sell a business to him in a few years, or how Page Industries found an innovative way to stop unionization at their manufacturing units. Other stories include the turnaround of Axis Bank and the boardroom coup that led to its chairman s exit and how Vijay Mallya sold Berger Paints to the Dhingra brothers. This book is mandatory reading for anyone who wants to understand how business is done successfully in India.

    Pretty good

    There is only a few good literature on investing in Indian companies. Sourabh brings out a totally different prospective to evaluate some of the finest old school Indian companies.
    None of the companies mentioned is involved in the business of new age technology, but few of the unique traits and ability to look at the bigger picture distinguish them from their competitors. They are first among equal.
    Most importantly, these companies have 6 traits.
    1. Instead of being distracted with short te...

    Just okay

    BEWARE.the title is a misnomer.. this book is NOT about unusual billionaires AT ALL.. rather, it is about 8 companies that are leading in their respective categories.. and what differentiates them from the rest of the pack.
